My son is obsessed with halloween, and now so is Mom! I did this special tablescape for him, and we had a dinner of spaghetti and these edible eyeballs.
We left the existing tall built-in shelf with some updating: painting the unit, re-lining the shelf bottoms, and getting new baskets and towels. We installed a new vanity and top, and toilet. We left the existing shower/bath, and put in new floor tiles.
For me, Christmas and Easter are among my favorite holidays, by my son just LOVES Halloween! So to support his favorite holiday, I wanted to think of some fun ways to let him explore the idea of “dressing up” as different things.
I found these wooden masks at Michaels craft store. All you need is some washable paint and paintbrushes (…and maybe some newspaper to cover the table mess).
Mom joins in on the fun because I can’t help myself…
I encourage them to choose their own colors. If he selects orange for the pumpkin then cool, but if he were to select pink or blue, resist the urge to correct them, there are no right answers when being creative!
Even little ones can join in the project. A high chair tray, and wearing just a diaper, are perfect ways to limit the mess that is bound to happen!
Here is the proud pumpkin with his finished product!
