So remember how I told you I'm more of a 'fall' person than a Halloween person?
Well I broke that rule a little for this project.
Cuz little man is so into scary things lately.
Is that a boy phase or what?
It's power rangers and ghosts all over the place right now.
So we decided to do a 'scary' project this weekend.
Cuz little man is just like me- looks for any excuse to use paint :)
See? How could you say no that?
I had to figure out what to put our ghosts on and my pile of scrap fence wood sure came in handy again.
This stuff is way too useful.
I used it on my farm sign and on several other projects coming up :)
We got some black and white paint for ghosts and little man insisted on green paint for some monsters.
But that's probably more associated with the fact that the green power ranger is his hero right now.
And we got to paintin' up those cute little feet.
(making the fish face is totally optional, but way cute)
Am I the only one obsessed with little people toes?
They're so squishy :)
See our cute little ghosts?
And before you think I'm some awesome ghost genuis, I should let you know that little man did footprint ghosts at his daycare last year.
And they were just too darn cute.
So I remembered them :)
I just used the back of the paintbrush to make dots for eyes.
And little man used his green paint to draw monstesrs on random pieces of wood.
Or wait, scary.
Monsters are not supposed to be cute.
So I'm told.
Here's the other scary monster.
I was told he needed 'several' eyes.
Where does he learn words like several?
Cracks me up.
I decided the bottom blank spaces needed something...
so we added 'boo' in vinyl (spraypainted black like this project) onto the wood.
It was the perfect little 'something' that it needed.
And little man now knows how to spell 'boo'.
He had to add his monsters in for the photo shoot of course.
I propped our ghosts up on my blue shelf so they'd scare all the dust away.
The several-eyed monster ended up on my end table so I can see it.
But little man told me to make sure I don't have bad dreams about him. :)
And now I have his little footprints around for a lot longer than just having it on construction paper.
This took us about thirty minutes from start to finish.
And was so much fun to do together.
Ticklish feet and all :)
So grab the kiddos and have craft time- they'll think you're the coolest mommy ever.
At least, that's the reaction I got :)
I can't promise that with anyone over the age of five, sorry.
What do you think?
Aren't you proud of me for branching out and entering the 'halloween' decor zone??
Happy Monday guys!!
I'm super excited, because I start my first round of my first pediatrics clinical today!
Cross your fingers that I don't make a fool of myself :)
