Evie and Gruff have been making their own spooky stuff this afternoon. They made a coffin out of a toilet roll for a wine cork Dracula. Frankenstein was “created” out of an old tampon box and an army of multicoloured wool pom pom spiders have made Arnie’s day.
Now to find the dog and cat under all this …

  1. I currently have four bat wings drying in the kitchen. My son wants to be a bat with blue wings bedecked with sequins. Just got a wimple for my daughter to make now!!


  2. Wonderful! Isn’t it magical to see children so engaged in creativity – and recycling materials to boot. My youngest two were making Halloween costumes for their cuddly toys today. Fun.


  3. I love to see children run with their imagination! My daughter is only two so it basically means she and every surface surrounding her is sticky with glue. But still so worth it!


  4. I love your doodles, they capture motherhood in such a unique way. ๐Ÿ™‚


  5. I love the intense concentration. Spooky stuff is serious stuff. ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s old-school fun, right there. It’s refreshing to see kids actually using their imagination instead of glued to their ipads! Nice one! ๐Ÿ™‚


  7. Love your blog! They capture children and their innocence brilliantly! I’m new to blogging and there’s something about your blog that really comforts me!


  8. Ah, tampon boxes- almost as useful and plentiful as loo roll inners and egg boxes, being 10 years past the menopause, I almost * miss them! My friend’s son, aged 10, made his Mum a coffin- for the Mother’s Day chocolates they’d made at school. His teacher said it was “an unusual choice!”
    * almost- but only when wanting to pack up small items, or make something for somebody’s doll’s house. The other 360 days of the year, I’m very relieved that I no longer need them!
