Welcome to another week of the Frugal Family Linky! We’ve been busy getting in the fall spirit this week, with lots of long walks outside and some jack o’lantern play using craft foam.
These Halloween luminaries made with paper plates and coffee filters are so cool. I love how even little kids can just paint with orange and black, while bigger kids can make jack o’lanterns or haunted houses, and either way looks cool. Thanks for sharing, A Little Pinch of Perfect! (And while I don’t like to feature two posts from the same site, check out her post on learning about leaves, too. Such fun ideas and there’s a free printable as well.)
And while we’re on the subject of Halloween, the girl let me off easy this year by wanting to be Elsa, whose costume she already has. (All I have to do is finish knitting her treat bucket.) But if you need a costume or several, check out these tips for doing costumes on the cheap from Medium Sized Family. My favorite is Get Creative, because that’s what we usually do, adding embellishments to regular clothes or using regular dress up costumes.
This play mailbox from P is for Preschooler is actually made out of a (priority) mail box, and it’s adorable and so much fun for kids in that “letter writing” stage. It’s also really easy to make and a great activity for those cold, rainy or snowy days you know are coming soon.
