Easy And Fun Halloween Sprinkle Pancakes

We love holidays in our house.  Any excuse to do things out of the ordinary at home with the kids is right up my alley.  We created these fun pancakes to help celebrate Halloween by simply adding some fun and spooky sprinkles to our normal pancake breakfast.

Do It Yourself Halloween Costumes – Black Angry Bird

The little guy finally decided on a costume for this year.  He chose to be the black Angry Bird which, apparently, is the one that explodes.  I got to work armed with my sewing machine,  heat n’ bond and 2 yards of black felt.  Here is what I came up with.

Rapunzel Inspired Princess Costume Using a Tulle Tutu

Do you have a little princess who needs a costume yet?  My Princess loves the movie Tangled and decided that she wanted to be Rapunzel.  Using a tutu shirt and a turtleneck I came up with a costume fit for my little Halloween princess. There are a few  problems with dressing your little one up as a princess for Halloween if you live in Wisconsin.  When Halloween arrives and it is time to put that cute little dress on over a snowsuit because it is so cold – it doesn’t always look as beautiful as you had hoped!  I wanted her to feel like a princess, but make a costume that...
