My 31 Days for the month of October...

 My girls love making things, whether it be a craft or a fun snack.  I always scour the internet and magazines looking for fun but easy things to do with them, especially close to holidays. Many of the things I find are super cute but I need to be Martha Stewart to attempt to make them or have to go buy tons of things that I probably won't be using again just to make them.  Well this year I decided to do 31 EASY snacks and crafts for the month of October with my girls and thought I'd share them with you to enjoy with your little ones!  Some I found on the internet, some I found an idea but changed it around to make it easier, others are ones my children have done at school or that I remember doing as a child or teacher.  I did each and every one of the snacks and crafts with my two girls so if you have any questions, please let me know.  I hope you enjoy and I'd love to hear any feedback!!  Come back tomorrow for Day 1!

*There is a craft later in the month that calls for rectangular tissue boxes (2 per child) so if you want to do that craft, buy the tissues now and use them through the month (there are several crafts this month that need stuffing and tissues can be used) that way you will have empty rectangular boxes ready!

*Next time you buy eggs, get the ones in a cardboard carton.  We will use that in another craft this month.

Overview of the month:
  • 11 activities are snacks 
  • 13 are crafts 
  • 7 are a snack/craft combo 
 Here are a few other Halloween activities if you have elementary age children.  My almost 6 year old has really enjoyed the word searches and both of my daughter's have enjoyed doing the Halloween Mad Libs.



  1. Can't wait to see what you come up with! Being a nanny means needing a few projects up my sleeve. :)

    1. Hope you find lots of stuff you can use! I used to nanny too so I totally understand!!
