Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Halloween

It's getting closer to Halloween! I love this time of year: the changing leaves, decorations, and fun food. I love everything except horror movies and haunted houses. I know, it's weird to love Halloween and hate those two things.

The boys are once again really excited, although no costume decisions have been made. Our greyhound has her costume picked out, with even a back up idea, and yet I cannot get the boys to finalize their costumes.
I have gotten a few things for the Boo bags, but we haven't Boo'd anyone yet. We still have to go to the pumpkin patch, get costumes, put up the final decorations, carve the pumpkins, and roast the seeds. I am at least a little more prepared than last year at this time (I have some candy and some decorations up). If you need any Halloween ideas, I have a bunch below!
 
ACTIVITIES:
  • Halloween Mazes:
  • Coloring Page.
  • Pumpkin Soccer or Bowling. Use a small pie pumpkin as the ball. 
    • Soccer: Split into two teams and create goals (small plastic cones work well). Have kids spider walk (aka crab walk) and kick the pumpkin soccer ball with their feet.
    • Bowling: Make pins from rolls of toilet paper.
      • Ghost pins: Decorate rolls with black paper eyes and mouth.
      • Mummy: Wrap a piece of toilet paper around a roll and add eyes.
      • Witch: Wrap in green tissue paper, add construction paper eyes/nose/mouth, and top with paper hat.
      • Vampire: Add fangs/mouth/eyes, and a black paper cape.
      •  Frankenstein: Wrap in green tissue paper, draw with sharpie or add black paper stitch marks/scars. Add eyes/nose/mouth.
FOOD:

CRAFTS:
