Easy as Pie Halloween Card Makin’ with the Kiddos!

* Please take a moment and head over to My Cricut Craft Room and check out the challenge I entered in to be on their Design Team.  Cast you vote by leaving a comment on the BEST project you think there is. 

Well it is now officially fall in Southern California. . . the Santa Ana wind (East Winds) and heat showed up!  It is a howlin’ out there right now and it makes me cringe worrying about fire bugs. I live in an area near the hills and if we see a fire there, we could face potential fire hazard issues.

When the wind is howling like this, no one wants to go outside for the fear of flying debris or blowing away, so it is indoor project time with the kiddos.  What we decided to do is make Halloween cards for family using the kiddos feet and hands.  The feet are ghosts and the hands are cats.  Each girl stamped their foot or hand on a 8.5×11 piece of card stock that I cut in half.  We used plain old craft paint and had wipes handy, handy, handy! Once they dried the girls added eyes and the embellishments of googly eyes, Primas, green Skittles (kitty eyes) and bling on their own using GLUE DOTS!  Love those things, especially with kiddos. NO MESS!

Then folding a piece of 8.5×11 card stock in half I glued down the craft the girls did to the front with an ATG.  Inside the card, I stamped it with a Halloween salutation from Close To my Heart’s Perfect Fit- Halloween!

See! Easy as pie!  Now we are just popping them in the mail today so they will make it to their destinations before Halloween!

Thanks for sharing a piece of “easy as pie Halloween cards” with me!
