What child does not like marshmallows-even more- cupcakes!  
Add a movie and you have a fun night with the whole family,
while eating these adorable popcorn cupcakes!

2ndSupplies:
Cake mix
White Frosting
Cupcake holders
Marshmallows
Paper
Red Marker
Tape
3rdInstructions:
Bake Cup cakes and let cool.
Frost cupcakes once they are cooled.
Apply the marshmallows on the top.
My 7 year old put them on the top-there is no specific way to make them look.
4thNext:
Make the striped muffin cups.
I drew out a pattern like this.
They have them online for free, but I decided to free hand mine.
5thI cut out the pattern and added stripes.  The stripes are 3 lines thick.
Meaning when I ran the marker across to make a stripe, I did so 3 different times to make a wider stripe.
I connected the two sides together with tape, which then formed a cup.
I dropped the cupcake into the cup.
6thALL DONE!

DO NOT PUT IN OVEN TO TOAST THE TOP OF THE MARSHMALLOWS!
Frosting will melt.  I tried this to see what would happen and I had   marshmallows and melted frosting everywhere. ha ha!
You can use a longer lighter and lightly toast the marshmallows, or a blow torch.  I chose to leave them plane.

They made my heart giggle when I saw them the first time.  My daughter and I had so much fun putting them together.
Perfect for a Circus Theme party too!

Halloween Crafts for Kids, Frankenstine Flower Pot, #Halloween, #DIY, #CraftFrankenstein Flower Pot

If you have an old flower pot, you have the makings of a monster on your hands! Take a look below at how we created a Frankenstein Flower Pot, perfect for the upcoming Halloween season! You too can craft your own Frankenstein, using a flower pot and a few other common crafting supplies. Take a look at how to get started.

Here is what you will need:

All of these items can be found at your local craft shop.

Halloween Crafts for Kids, Frankenstine Flower Pot, #Halloween, #DIY, #CraftDirections:

1. Begin by applying two coats of craft paint to your flower pot. Allow the coats to dry in between for the best coverage. If you need to, you can add additional coats.

2. Once the paint is totally dry (it will take a good hour, as the terra cotta dries slowly) you can attached your eyes. Take a pair of googly eyes and apply a drop of glue to the back of each. Press the eyes to the pot. Hold them in place until they are dry and secure.

3. You can now take the black marker and create the other facial features on your Frankenstein. We made a straight line and added some scores to it to create the mouth. We then made some lines on the top rim of the flower pot to look like hair. You can mimic the details we created, or you can have fun and create your own. There really is no right or wrong way to decorate your monster and make him come to life. Give this easy and inexpensive Frankenstein flower pot a try. It is a great way to get crafty this Halloween season and really have some frugal fun!

Human Foosball with PVC Pipe, quick and easy game for family reunions, youth groups or family reunions #GroupGamesMany of you know my oldest son was born missing half his heart.  He has Hypoplstic Left Heart Syndrome. This has caused him to be much smaller than most kids his size, and also developmentally delayed.  But that has never stopped him from wanting to get involved and be with kids his own age. In our church when you turn 12 years old you can starting going to a youth group every Wednesday.  This has been the highlight of my sons week for a year now, he absolutely loves it.

This week they played Human Foosball, Matthew was the smallest kid to play but that did not stop him.  He was laughing, giggling, jumping and having a blast the whole time.  A few times he was even lifted off the ground as he hung onto the pipe, but he was along for the ride and had a blast.

To make your own Human Foosball game, all you need is a group of kids, pvc pipes (you can find them at your local Home Depot or Lowes)  and a large kick ball. You need 6 pvc pipes, 4 of them longer for the middle and 2 shorter for the goalie.   This can be played in a gym or outside.

You can watch a short video clip of Human Foosball here.

Supplies needed for this craft:

  • Glass bottle with stopper ($2.50 at Hobby Lobby)

Directions:

1. Begin by adding a layer of craft glue to your bottle stopper. Roll it in a dish of glitter. You can choose any color of glitter you wish that compliments your paper choice. Set aside the stopper to dry.

2. Cut a thick strip of Halloween scrapbook paper. We chose a spooky black and white combo. Wrap it around the bottle and secure it with glue.

3. Place a chalkboard label on the front of your bottle. This is what you will write the contents on. If you  don’t have a chalkboard label, use a piece of black construction paper and chalk.

4. Return the stopper to the bottle. Your witch’s brew bottle is now ready to be used. You can actually fill it with your party beverages, or just use it as your holiday centerpiece or décor item. Either way, it is sure to bring some haunting fun into your home. Gather your supplies and give this fun and frugal witch’s brew bottle a try. It is a great way to get into the spirit of the Halloween season for less.
