My Mom bought us a Halloween puppet making kit and Eleanor loves it! I put the glue on and she puts the foam pieces where they go. It's very easy and Eleanor is quite proud of her creations.
Here she is with her puppets and the mice she made at storytime.
I took the kids costume shopping last night, but the selection at Goodwill was very disappointing. Last year Matt and I went there the first Friday of October and there were costumes everywhere, so I was expecting the same thing last night, but instead found one lame rack of costumes. Eleanor was the only one who found something she loved...
Matt and I call it her witch costume, but she calls it her dancing dress.
I took the kids to another Goodwill last night, but we struck out there, too. This is why I wanted to start our shopping early, we still have 27 shopping days before Halloween.
BTW~ Emily found a pair of church shoes last night, so I can check that off my "to buy" list.
