Magic Marker Monday — Halloween Fun


It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.”

~Pablo Picasso

Welcome to Magic Marker Monday! If you haven’t heard about Magic Marker Monday yet, click here and then hurry right back…

I saw these cute little spiders made out of paper egg cartons and tea lights over at Family Fun and we just had to give them a try!

The resident 3-year-old is currently head-over-heels for spiders. Well, sort of… in a very hands off “don’t even think about coming near me” sort of way.

So long as they keep their distance, spiders are off-the-charts fascinating in his toddler-sized opinion.

His 7-year-old sister on the other hand? Spiders are neither pink, nor do they wear tutus. AND they are a creepy kind of bug.

No way was I going to talk her into making a spider. So we had to settle for a few modifications…

Halloween rainbow kitty anyone?
