 This black cat won’t bring you bad luck and he’s a fun project for Halloween.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Paper plate (small and large size)
  • Black crayon/Black wide pen
  • Construction paper (black, green and pink)
  • White Pen or white out
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Ribbon (any color)
  • Hole puncher

 How You Make It:

  1. Color two black paper plates – one small and one larger size. Crayons are easier to use, but you can also color the paper plate with markers or colored pencils.
  2. Cut out two small ovals from green construction paper for the cat’s eyes. Draw a black dot in the middle of each oval with your crayon. Glue the eyes near the top of the small paper plate.
  3. Cut out two triangles from some black construction paper. Glue them to the top of your small paper plate for the cat’s ears. The ears should be apart, so put one on each side of the plate. Add two smaller triangles using pink construction paper to create the center of the ear (see image).
  4. Cut out a small triangle from some pink construction paper. Glue it to the middle of the small paper plate for the cat’s nose.
  5. Cut out a long black tail out of black construction paper (make it as long or squiggly as you would like). Glue to the side of the larger black paper plate.
  6. Cut out two small “kitty” feet with small black construction paper circles; you can also add curves to the circle as “toes” (see image) – use a white pen or glue to draw lines for toes.
  7. Glue the small and larger black paper plates together (i.e. connected the head to the body). Wait at least ten minutes for the glue to dry. For faster results you can use a stapler to connect the two plates.
  8. Tie a bow with 1.5 feet of ribbon.
  9. Glue the ribbon to the “neck” of the cat where the two plates are connected.
  10. Wait for the glue to dry and you are done.
  11. Using a hole puncher, poke one hole at the top of the cat’s head and string a ½ foot of ribbon through the hole. Tie the ribbon in a knot to hang the cat on your front door or any door inside the house.

MEOW! NOW THAT IS A CUTE HALLOWEEN KITTY!

PumpkinPatchMPEvery year, like most families, we head out to the pumpkin patch to pick out the perfect pumpkin. Once my husband and I started having children, we didn’t care about the perfect pumpkin anymore. It’s all about taking a thousand pictures and capturing the perfect shot!

For Miranda’s first pumpkin patch photo, I found the biggest pumpkin and leaned her against it since she was only 4 months old. This year, for Paulo, now that he has a big sister to lean on, I made sure to find a cluster of pumpkins and positioned both my little darlings right smack in the center. I love it!

Usually, I prefer both kids wearing their Halloween costumes, but I couldn’t resist putting this adorable green and brown striped coverall from le•top’s 2009 Halloween Fun collection. The best part is the Halloween cat hood with pointy ears. It’s the cat’s meow!

5 Year old Diana in her Pink Fairy Costume

First up to the plate…is me!  Here I am at 5 years old in my very favorite costume.  The ultimate ‘little girl’ look – a pink fairy costume complete with tiara, wand and wings!  After Halloween was long past I would walk around the house wearing my very cool wings – I may have slept in them as well! 

Check back tomorrow for a new costume idea!
