Here is the Halloween banner my daughter and I made for our front door (don't mind the smudges on my door - I didn't windex before taking the pic! Ugh - I'm going to go do that right now.):
BUY OF THE WEEK
As I mentioned in a previous post, for my daughters 9th birthday we are having a cooking party. I gave you a sneak peek of her invites, and just have to give you a sneak peek of the favors:
I found these adorable little kits at The Christmas Tree Shop on clearance for $5 each! Since I was planning on making aprons for each girl and it would have cost about the same, I decided to buy these instead. Now each girl will have their own bowl, rolling pin, wooden spoon, whisk, apron, chef hat, cookie cutters, measuring cups AND spoons! I am pretty happy with my fabulous find.
I finished the marshmallow shooter for my brother for Christmas. I also made a shoulder pouch to hold the marshamallows and a larger bag that I stamped his name on to hold everything when not in use. This was VERY simple to do and pretty inexpensive. I loved it so much that I decided to also make one for my little sister (they are the same age and will have a blast shooting marshmallows at each other). I will probably end up making goggles for each of them as well... no need to shoot an eye out! On an easy to hard scale of 1 to 10, this was a 2. As long as you can handle a saw, you can put this shooter together! I featured an easy-to-follow tutorial in my What are little boys made of? Weekly Round-Up for anyone interested in making one of these. I altered it a little to make my shooter a bit bigger.
And here is a picture of the girls and me coming back from our weekend shopping extravaganza:
