I’ve been a Halloween maniac this year, unable to stop myself from buying up all of the magazines, cookie cutters, sprinkles, cookie cutters, and cookie cutters that I have been seeing everywhere. Add that to the
millions several adorable pins I have been adding to my “Fall” board on Pinterest, and we have more than enough project ideas to keep us busy this month. I was afraid that all of the magazines and cookie cutters would wind up covered in cobwebs if I didn’t somehow MAKE myself use them, so Ellie and I decided to try to do at least one project for every day in October.
Since the kids were off of school yesterday, my niece and nephew joined us for project number one: caramel apples. Since the kids only range in age from eighteen months to five years, I figured whole apples would be too hard to bite, so I sliced the apples first, and placed each slice on a stick. Then my sister-in-law dipped the slices in the melted caramel, and we let each child (except the baby) decorate them with toppings.
When they were done, the girls got to enjoy their hard work.
Day 2’s project is lined up…. lets see how far we can take this (I have commitment issues, LOL!).
