A Little More Halloween.

My childless brother-in-law once said Halloween was his favorite holiday because he didn't have to spend it with his family. I think Halloween is my favorite holiday because of my family.  To be honest I think they are all my favorite holidays.  We have been doing some Halloween themed activities (shocker since it's Oct.) and G and H have had a blast.

We made orange play dough using gelatin.  They loved smelling it and then using Halloween cookies cutters.

I found a pumpkin ice cube tray at the Dollar Store and some Halloween pom-poms at Target.  They loved using the chopsticks to put a pom-pom into each pumpkin space.


  1. What is your playdough recipe with gelatin?

    My flour and salt playdough recipe isn't cutting it lately...

    Very cute with the big chopsticks!

  2. I use the flour and salt recipe too. Here is the recipe.

    2 cups flour (white)
    1/2 cup salt
    2 tablespoons cream of tartar
    2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
    1 warm water
    1 three oz. pkg. jello (any flavor)

    Mix and cook over medium heat.
