So it’s that time of year… when the ghouls are let out from school and you have to try and occupy them for a week.

Why not get them into the Halloween spirit and decorate your house with these Halloween inspired crafts. Big mum points here!

 

Bin bag cobwebs
1.       Firstly cut your bin bag into a square.
2.       Fold your square in half diagnally, in half again and in half again.
3.       Now cut out your cob web shape and move all the off cuts to one side.
4.       Unfold your cobweb and stick it on the window. Simples.

2.       Fold you piece of A4 black card in half
3.       Draw around your bat template with the folded side in the middle

      It really is so so easy! I was dreading in to be honest but it was so straightforward. Rosalie is only 14 months so we r not going to go crazy. We will just stay in and wait for the trick or treaters. Im hoping she'll be happy to give her chocolate away xxx
