Hallowen symmetry blob monsters!

Here's a wonderfully simple painting project to kick off the fall season. 
 You make these like you make any other symmetry painting. Fold the paper in half. Claire used a sponge paintbrush to dab the paint on one half of the page. Then she folded the paper in half and rubbed the pages together.
 When the paint was dry, we sat down to decorate our blob monsters. Claire glued on as many googly eyes as she wanted to. Then she used a black marker to draw scary arms, legs and surprised mouths.
And there you have it. A fun, but super simple project to kick off a new season. I used some washi tape to hang them on our laundry room door so that Claire can admire her work all day long!

Fun Fall Crafts

Welcome back, blog friends. I didn't intended to take a month and half long hiatus from my blog, but between returning to work, and a fairly uninspired crafty summer, I didn't have much energy to blog. Not to worry though, fall is one of my favorite times of the year. We've already done three new projects this weekend! While I prepare those projects to post, I thought that I'd round up my favorites from previous years. Enjoy!

1. Handprint turkeys
2. Free printable of fall activities
3. Footprint fire trucks
4. Footprint flying witches
5. Halloween subway art
6. Best ever banana muffins
7. Leaf print hungry caterpillar print
8. Halloween bouquet
9. Halloween thumbprint art (see below)
