Last year, I showed you how I made a felt board for a few dollars using an old cardboard box.
Here is how I used that felt board for some October fun.
I put the fall leaves on our seasonal tree every Autumn for the kids to play with but as Halloween nears, I slowly add some new Halloween-themed felt pieces each day to make the board more festive. I started with some pumpkins, an apple and an acorn.
I then added two large pumpkins with vampire teeth, an eye patch, lips, eyebrows, mustaches, goatees, bows and more for the kids to use to make different faces.
And then I made some Halloween characters. I copied the ghost saying "boo" from my friend Brynn's adorable Halloween felt board. And I added a mummy raking leaves, a skeleton, a bat and a witch. The kids enjoy playing with these guys.
Last year I made this organic Halloween snack for my son too, using real food ingredients (raisins, an avocado, an apple, carrots, cottage cheese and string cheese), with no added, processed sugar.
