October is here! My favorite month. I love the smell of the rain washed air, sweater weather, apple picking, pumpkin spiced everything, my birthday, Halloween, and colorful leaves! So much to love. This year Sprinkles and I decided to try our hands (and hooves) at making some homemade Candy Corn Paint- and it totally worked!

I am extra excited about Halloween this year. It’s not usually high on my excitement list, as I am not into dark things– but this year I am bringing some color to Halloween night! Sprinkles and I are not only dressing up like butterflies this year– but we are having a Colors Are Magic porch party for my trick-or-treaters! It’s going to be a blast and I have some fun ideas up my sleeve, but I thought I would take to Pinterest to see if there were any fun ideas I maybe missing out on. There are some really adorable and clever things out there, so I thought I would put together a little post for any of you who are looking for some Halloween crafts to do with your little pumpkins this week leading up to All Hallows’ Eve.

I can’t believe that Halloween is less than 2 weeks away. Seriously, where did the year go? Rhetorical.
Anyhow, one of my favorite crafts to do with my pet unicorn, Sprinkles, is Secret Scribbles. They are super simple and totally fun to do. So, I decided to do a little Halloween version with her tonight. If you are looking around for a Halloween craft to do with your little pumpkins, this is a great option.

Babies. Let’s face it, they are already super cute– but add a Halloween costume and your heart may just explode.
I intended on asking my mother to tell me all about my first Halloween for inspiration for this post. Unfortunately, the story wasn’t much of a story. Ha! Apparently my mother was recovering from giving birth and a broken tail bone– so I stayed home and was nothing for Halloween. So let’s just get on with it.

It was a dark and stormy night…. well… no it wasn’t– but it makes for a better Halloween story. Anyhow, on this particular Wednesday afternoon, my pet unicorn, Sprinkles, and I were trying to come up with some creative sugar alternatives to hand out to our little Trick-or-Treaters this Halloween. We have already made some very fun and colorful Halloween Crayons (which I am stoked about!) — but we wanted to have some sort of sensory project for our Halloween Porch Party!

It is October and Halloween is upon us! This year instead of handing out a plethora of high fructose corn syrup, Sprinkles and I have decided to hand out some fun alternatives. One of those being some super fun Halloween Crayons! Halloween is already pretty dark– let’s add a little color!

I have never liked creepy things… ever. I was super sensitive to anything remotely scary and/or violent as a child. I had the biggest love-hate relationship with Halloween of all time. I loved dressing up and going trick-or-treating. I loved sorting my candy at the of the night into organized and categorized piles. I loved carving pumpkins and having class Halloween parties. I did not however enjoy scary masks. I have seen photos of me as a toddler and very small child dressed as a bumble bee or a bunny. One year I was Simba, from The Lion King. I am pretty sure that every costume after that I was an angel. Mainly because I figured out that I could basically wear 85% glitter and designed wings and a halo every year. Thinking back on it… costumes in Alaska were slightly useless as most Halloweens it was so cold we had to wear heavy winter coats over our costumes and the poor neighbors had to try and guess what we were from the neck up.
