These Seven Spooky Things should keep you well spooked from April 20th to April 27th.
Check out this weeks activities below:
It's a new week! So lets kick start this week with a super easy and quick make. You might even have one of these around the house from all the Easter Chocolate you've had.
Todays make is this Gothic box which is made from an old Ferrero Rocher plastic box. All you need to do is spray paint it and add some embellishments for a super easy gothic make.
Find out more and how to make it in more detail right here.
Today's activity should actually keep you busy for more than just a day and it's totally free! I previously released an Activity Pack to help combat boredom and also give kids a little something to do during this lockdown.
Well last week I released another Activity Pack and this one is bigger! It once again contains colouring pages and puzzles/games but you can also make your very own Candy Corn bunting Decoration.
You can grab the first Activity Pack right here and the second pack here. If you do download and make these please do tag me in your pics as I would love to see!
Let's make pancakes! These pancakes are easy to make and also low in fat.
All you need is: 350g sieved flower, 1 tsp baking powder, 2 bananas, 2 eggs, 1 tsp of vanilla extract and 250ml of milk.
Mash the bananas into a bowl with the eggs, vanilla extract and milk until it's all mixed together and smooth. In another bowl mix the flower and baking powder together and then combine the two mixes together.
In a hot pan melt a little butter and pour out you desired amount. Cook for around 90 seconds to 2 minutes on each side and then serve! I had mine with syrup and sliced banana.
I absolutely love these. They're such a great idea and fun to make. All you really need is some paper, card and ice lolly sticks to make your very own little flying witches.
What's more is you could have a whole bunch of these on your wall or stick to your windows for Halloween. Hang them to make little ceiling decorations or even a mobile.
Find out all the details right here.
Continuing with the witchy makes today and this one is another fun and easy project. All you need is string, pens, paper cups and some card/paper.
You can make these hanging witches that would look great in the garden. Their little paper dresses blow in the wind along with their fuzzy paper hair.
This is another make that would be great fun with the kids and you can really make each witch your own, so you have your own little paper coven at home.
Head on over to here to find out more and how to make them.
This week Saturday is movie night. And this weeks movie is HalloweenTown. I have only just watched this film recently as it never had a UK release. With the arrival of Disney+ here in the UK all four of these films are now available for your streaming pleasure.
The film focuses on the Cromwell's who have a very long history of witchcraft and magic within the family, except the kids don't know that yet. When grandma needs help the kids take it upon themselves to not only help save HalloweenTown and it's people but also to find out who they really are in the process.
It's such a fun little film that I will definitely be watching every October from now on.
It's your final Spooky Thing to do this week and this one is another super easy make.
All you need is orange and black paint (black markers would be suitable too) and some empty tins.
Make sure the tins are not sharp around the edges to avoid any cuts. All you need to do is paint them orange and draw/paint on your own Jack'O Lantern faces. You could make these into plant pots, stack them as decorations or even make your own game of bowling! Find out more right here.
As a bonus extra each week i'll feature an instagrammer who has a spooky profile that you might like. This way you can add even more spookiness to your instagram feed each week too.
