First up was painting using Halloween colours of red, orange, blue, brown, green and purple:
Boo's all had a similar theme...
I was proud of my one horned purple people eater. Until I discovered he's a one eyed, one horned purple people eater. Bah.
I also made an evil flower, which came out cuter than intended.
Even the partner had a go and made a Cheesestring monster
Today we have been busy baking and making milk bottle ghosts and funny balloon faces (which were supposed to be monsters but came out looking gormless so they're rebranded).
I saw the milk bottle ghosts on another blog a few weeks ago and can't remember which one so apologies to whoever did it first as I can't link back.
To make the milk bottle ghosts we washed out the plastic bottles and cut a hole in the back and then drew on ghost faces using a Sharpie pen
They look much better in real life than in the photo and glow rather than having a big light in the middle.
Lastly (phew), we made funny face balloons for the trick or treaters by drawing eyes, mouths and noses on plain sticky labels and colouring them in
Then the kids stuck the faces on. To finish off I tied string around the bottom and added some leftover monster and alien stickers
The response from the trick or treaters was great. One girl told me it was a good idea and a boy was heard saying 'the sweets are inside the balloon - wicked' once the door was closed so I am very pleased.
