CHILD SAFETY IS IMPORTANT TO US

A responsible adult should supervise any child or children taking part in any of the activities listed on this website in order to avoid potential dangers or injuries. Their are no activities for children that are completely safe. Children are experts at finding ways to get hurt that never occur to adults. All activities should be supervised. The author/publisher of this site does not assume any liability for damage caused by injury sustained by conducting any of the projects on this site. The adults who are working/playing with children are the only ones who are able to discern whether a specific situation is safe or appropriate for a specific child or children.

 

Pumpkin Bell

Wind Chime

pumpkinbells.JPG (37201 bytes)

Materials: 4 small (2") clay pots; twine, raffia, jingle bells, orange and black acrylic pain, paintbrush

Paint the clay pots orange and add jack-o-lantern faces with the black paint after the orange layer is completely dry. When the paint is dry, place pots upside down with the bases up and run a piece of twine through the hole in each base. Tie the end of twine that is inside each pot to a jingle bell and then make a large knot just inside the hole so that it won't pull through. Make another good size knot on the outside of the hole to secure the pot. Leave about 15" of twine outside of the pot. When you have done this with all 4 pots, tie the long ends of the twine together. Add a little raffia to the top of each bell and put a raffia bow on top of the twine where it is tied together. Hang outdoors for a breeze or indoors as a decoration.

Another option using just one pot.

Bake Halloween Cookies

Bake and decorate Halloween cookies and then share them with friends. Use fall shapes such as leaves, owls or pumpkins if Halloween is not celebrated in your family. Make it a family project. Let children help make the dough, roll it out and use the cookie cutters. Frosting can be homemade with powdered sugar, milk, shortening and vanilla or you can purchase a container of ready-made vanilla frosting and use food coloring to get the colors you want.


Kid Robot.  This was the funniest costume in our family history. Dad made it out of a plastic waste paper basket and a plastic bucket with dryer hoses and more. The part that still makes us laugh, is that our son couldn't move once he had the costume on, so dad wheeled him around the neighborhood on a dolly to go Trick-or-Treating.

Decorate with Balloon Spiders

Combine round balloons and the long, thin kind used to make balloon animals and make a spider. It's pretty hard to get 8 legs with balloons and the dark purple, blue and green ones often look black before they are inflated. But it's fun to make the spiders anyway. Use large plastic jiggle eyes and attach them with a little glue or rolled pieces of clear packing tape. Hang them from the ceiling, stick them in a "web" of purchased spider webbing material or make a spider centerpiece.


Make Ghosts from Gauze, Felt, Fabric and even White Glue
