baby's first halloween

October 2008 was approaching and I wanted to do something fun for Halloween. I knew we would not take our 6 month old trick or treating, but I wanted to get good use out of his costume, a dalmation puppy. So I planned a Baby's First Halloween Party. To be served: bottles and brunch. I decided we should do some crafts to have for keepsakes. Spider hands, ghost feet, and thumb bats. They all turned our really cute. The favors were burp clothes with each childs name on it and a bag to take home all their crafts in.



Necessary supplies included the following:
Spiders - black contruction paper, googly eyes, glue, pencil to trace hand and scissors to cut out hands and create an oval for the body.
Bats - orange pumpkin paper or any colored construction paper, ink pad or black paint, white paint and q-tip for eyes, black paint pen for ears and wings. (We did both mommy and baby thumbs to compare how tiny they were.)
Feet - white paint, sponge paint brush, wet wipes to quickly clean feet, black construction paper to stamp foot on, black paint pen to make eyes (on heel).
