I love Halloween, it’s an event in the UK which I think is under celebrated, yet I like to make it a real occassion, especially for the kids. It’s also a great excuse to get our craft on again! The kids love making Halloween decorations for pending parties. This Toilet Roll Halloween Bat kids craft is a great one for young and old kids alike.
I love the Autumn, when the leaves start to fall, and the nights start to draw in. We love getting outdoors, and just because the weather isn’t as good, it doesn’t put us off! You cant beat a good Autumn Scavenger Hunt, and what better time to do it when there are loads of acorns, conkers and other treasures to find! I’ve included a FREE printable in this post, so if you want to give it a go yourself you can simply print one off and you’re all set.

Welcome back to the Kids and Kreativity linky party! This is a linky for all your blog posts that encourage creativity or inspire imagination in children.

Anything that gets the creative juices flowing, or sparks kids’ wonderful imaginations can be linked up.
This Puffy Paint Paper Plate Moon craft is a really simple fun (but messy!) craft for the kids to do. This is my version of puffy paint, which differs from others recipes I’ve seen. When completely dry it gives a flatter but textured finish, which is how I imagine the moon surface would look.
