    My kids and I love making decorations for Halloween!! We made really creepy looking gravestones for our front yard. We used sheets of styrofoam cut into grave marker shapes, painted them grey with a thin coat of latex paint and sponged on dark grey, brown and moss green. Then we wrote funny R.I.P. sayings on them.
    We also made a big skeleton for the front door by cutting bones out of white bristol board and then jointing the whole thing together with those tack things that you poke through paper and then spread apart the two arms.
    For the front yard we put out the grave stones and then added a lot of leaves and cobwebs. Then we took apart some old baby dolls we got at the thrift store and had the arms and legs poking up out of the leaves.
    My favourite was the rubber rats we put all over the porch, they were so realistic the neighbours complained!

    Papier Mache!!! Woo hoo. The kids will love it.
    Make paper mache paste (there are many different options):

    * OPTION 1: 3/4 white glue to 1/4 water (or if using a good, thick glue, like elmers you can do 1/2 and 1/2)
    * OPTION 2: COOK METHOD: 1 part flour to 5 parts water… boil about 3 minutes and let cool (my favorite! it’s the cheapest method and is nice and smooth)
    * OPTION 3: 1 part flour to 1 part water. Stir together.

    Then just decide what you want to make and go for it!

    Oh there are so many things that you can do with kids! I don’t know what ages your children are but my neice is three and we have started to make some salt dough ghosts together. Here is the recipe:

    1 cup flour
    1 cup salt
    1/2 cup water
    Wooden spoon
    Fine-point permanent black marker

    Time needed: Under 1 Hour
    1. Combine the flour, salt, and water in a bowl. Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth.

    2. Divide the dough into 6 equal pieces and shape each into a ghost, flattening the base so it will stand up.

    3. Microwave the ghosts on a plate one or two at a time for 20- to 30-second intervals until the dough is fairly firm (about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes in total). Let the ghosts cool (they can get quite hot).

    4. Use a fine-point permanent black marker to draw on eyes and a mouth.

    You can also make ghost pictures with there foot prints. I took some black construction paper and some white acrylic crafts paint and poured the paint into a paper plate and let my neice step in it. She then stepped onto the construction paper making a "ghost". She loved doing it.

    You can also make ghosts and skeletons out of one gallon milk jugs.

    There are just so many things that you can do if you use your imangination. If you are having trouble coming up with ideas, go to Better Homes and Gardens, Martha Stewart, or Family Fun’s websites. They have many, many cool ideas that you can do with your children.

    Happy Halloween and have fun!

    We make almost all our decorations 😉

    You can craft pumpkins and bats from construction paper; paper chains from black & orange paper, luminaries from milk cartons, ghosts from plastic bags, and tiny ghosts from bits of tissue.

    Here’s a link to my blog ~ it’s filled with lots of budget Halloween decorations using recyclables, a little paint, and lots of imagination 🙂
