My girls love a good Halloween party. Halloween has always been a favorite holiday in our house. There is nothing like doing some fun Halloween crafts, watching a spooky movie, and eating yummy Halloween treats! The weather is getting cooler and the leaves outside are changing. It is one of my favorite times of year! I wanted to share with you some fun, simple, and inexpensive ways that your family can celebrate Halloween, just like mine does!
Mama Smith grew up reading and in turn, loves reading to her little girls. She knows the importance of reading from birth and has put together a list of some of the best kids books of 2017! Each book on this guide was personally tested and/or approved by Mama Smith. Please enjoy and remember to keep coming back because new items are added daily! This guide may contain affiliate links.
I am sure I have said it many times, but I love doing crafts with my girls! And even better when these crafts can be educational and involve science! My husband is a nuclear engineer and so he is a big fan of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) programs for kids so he was thrilled when the Green Kid Crafts kit showed up at our door!
