First we decided to paint with pudding! My friend Elizabeth had written about how much fun her son Henry had with it and how edible it was for little creatures who still put things in their mouthes :) I grabbed some vanilla pudding (pre-made), black and red food coloring, and this cute little pumpkin tray. And we got to
I sort of made a whole morning of Halloween fun. We had pumpkin spice donuts & pumpkin chocolate chip bread for breakfast. Then I gave Adelaide her tricks & treats so that she could enjoy them during the next few weeks. Post painting I put her skeleton jammies on so we could cuddle weekend style with a touch of spook!

The next weekend I decided to get a little more crafty and do pumpkin faces. By crafty I mean I knew this would be a difficult task for Adelaide because she is only 13 1/2 months so following directions and glue sticks probably aren't the best combo. But nonetheless we got to putting the pre-cut black card stock shapes & faces onto orange plates to make pumpkins. A big thanks to Craftulate for this simple & cute idea.

I am really looking forward to the next few holidays & crafting with little Ms. Adelaide Jane! I love starting traditions and this is a great mommy/daughter one for us!
