Need a Halloween craft idea to do with your kids? Read below for My Perfect Mess – inspired easy fall crafts!
Happy One Week until Halloween, Friends! Today, your go-to Pinterest Fail Mom (me!) has an easy Fall craft that you can enjoy with your little ones as you get into the spirit of Halloween!
My kids, especially my Threenager, LOVE arts and crafts. Finger painting is a common activity in our house that keeps both kids busy for some time. (Cue Angels Singing!) It may be messy, but it’s definitely fun and of course, it’s easy for us non-crafty moms!
Supplies You’ll Need:
- Variety of finger paints (non-toxic!)
- Paper plates
- Halloween printouts
- White mini pumpkins
- Cup of water
- Paper Towels and Wipes
Seriously, the set up is so easy! Just pour small amounts of paint onto the paper plates and let your kids go to town on the printable and pumpkins!
I’ve learned in my almost four years of parenting to just let go and live in the moment with most things in life. One of those things is to know that having a clean kitchen (or house for that matter!) isn’t likely to happen until my kids are in college. And in all honesty, I’m totally okay with it!
I want to look back on these years of parenting my babies and know that I spent the time enjoying the moments. I want to remember laughing with them and getting messy with them. Because that’s what matters in life. This is truly “my perfect mess,” and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Have you guys heard of STAINMASTER®? Their floors stands up to the wear and tear of everyday life, so we can live comfortably in our homes. My Perfect Mess is spending an afternoon with my two boys and enjoying a simple activity, getting messy, all while laughing creating works of toddler art!
