IF you have time, and IF you feel like working on some cute Halloween/Fall crafts with or without your kids, below are some ideas:

SI ES QUE tienen tiempo y SI ES QUE quieren hacer algunas manualidades con o sin sus hijos, aqui les comparto algunas ideas:

Get white balloons, cheesecloth (or gauze) and black paper for the eyes (I couldn’t find any black paper at our house, so I used a black sharpie and colored the white paper). Put layers of cheesecloth on top of the balloon, glue the eyes, and you’re basically done. Hang them anywhere around the house with some string and scotch tape. Have fun!


Con globitos blancos, gaza y papelitos negros puedes hacer estos fantasmitas! (Yo no pude encontrar papel negro, así es que pinte papel blanco con plumón negro para los ojitos). Pon capas de gaza encima del globo. Pega los ojitos. Cuelgalos donde quieras con pita, lana, o hilo y scotch tape. Que se diviertan!

Toilet paper roll mummies

Displaying DSC05027.jpgMy cute sister-in-law made these for my kids. I thought they were ADORABLE! You will need an empty toilet paper roll, googly eyes, and white streamers (….or toilet paper if you don’t have any streamers). Cut out a circle for the top of the head, out of cardboard and scotch tape it to the roll (double sided would be best). Then wrap the roll with the streamer. Googgly eyes and voila! You can also make it a pinata, like my sister-in-law did! (Put candies inside the mummy, then cover the bottom with some streamer, tape a ribbon or baker’s twine underneath it so the kids can pull on it). Enjoy!

Momias de papel

Mi cunada les mando estos regalitos a mis hijos. Le quedaron muy lindos! Para hacerlos vas a necesitar tubos de papel higiénico, ojitos de plastico y papel crepe blanco (o papel higienico si no tienes papel crepe!). Cortale un circulo de papel o cartulina para la cabeza, y lo pegas con scotch tape. Luego envuelves el tubo con el papel crepe. Pégale los ojitos y ya están listos! Si los quieres hacer como una pinata, entonces ponle una pita,

This one is CREEPY. And it is harder to set up than it seems (Especially if you are using the ceiling). You will need a black balloon (or two if you are ambitious, one for the head and the other one for the body), black streamers and tape. Don’t scream if you wake up and get scared in the middle of the night!

Arana de globo

Esta manualidad es tenebrosa y mas dificil de terminar de lo que parece. Vas a necesitar un globo negro, papel crepe negro y scotch tape. Si te despiertas en la mitad de la noche, no grites!!


Halloween/Fall Banner

You can cut out triangles out of cloth, paper, or …., and either hot glue them to a string or cut out holes and connect them with a string. Or you can buy a blank banner at Target like I did, and write whatever you want! (Halloween, Fall, Autumn, Boo, Trick or Treat, etc…)

Banderita de Otono o Halloween

Con papel o tela puedes cortar triangulos y pegarlosa pita o cinta (o puedes cortarles hoyitos y pasarlos por la cinta). O puedes comprar una banderita en blanco y escribir lo que tu quieras en ella (Otono, Bu, Halloween, Dulce o Travesura, etc.)
