It is time to start planning my Halloween decorations. Halloween may trump Christmas in my house as a favorite holiday. Seriously, the kid is wearing a Halloween shirt and pirate pants in July.
Since P is still little, we prefer spooky over scary. As we acquire new decorations, I let him set the boundaries on what he’s comfortable with. He has created an idea of a Spooky Ghost Pumpkin. We have no idea what that is, but try to run with that. If you have any ideas, please share.
With decor in mind, I turn to Pinterest. Maybe I should add more ideas to my Halloween board? Do you have any family fun activities you like for Halloween?
This year I will be adding a quilt to the decorations. My wonderful bee mates of the Blossom Heart Bees made blocks for this quilt last year, using the Tic Tac Toe block. My theme was Halloween in orange, lime green, purple, and teal for the X’s. Also black with white prints for the corners. The blocks turned out great and better than I would have imagined. My bee mates had some good prints in their stashes. P loved getting them in the mail.
A few more are needed to finish the top. From my stash I pulled more green, purple, and teal to balance out the top. Even a fun zombie print.
There are a couple more blocks in the works then I can layout the top as I want. It’s going to need some balance from all the orange.
P was excited each time a new block arrived. He realized they were for him and gasped with excitement. Hopefully he’s still as excited about the quilt as I finish it. Maybe we can watch scary movies and snuggle on the couch under it?
The rocket above is from Amazon, best money we have spent on a toy. He loves it and exploring how to make the rocket go faster, higher and aiming at things. Great gift for a four year old.
