My family likes to go big for Halloween. It is one of our favorite holidays and we start decorating in September so we can enjoy it longer. Our house is always one that people stop at to check out. We have a smoking cauldron, which is pretty awesome, but the biggest draw is our singing pumpkins. They have a nightly show starting in October and we have become sort of famous for it in our little city.
As you likely know already, my family loves to game! Every weekend we can be found playing video games, and Bomberman is one of our favorites. We love it because we can all play together – and my youngest just loves to buy all the different hats. While deciding on the pumpkin she wanted to make this year, her hardest decision was which hate her Bomberman pumpkin would have. A crab? Classic ball? Nope, she settled on the ice cream hat, and I am so glad she did!
My seven year old daughter has been watching (and playing) Skylanders for a few years now. So when I said I was making a Fortnite Drift Pumpkin for a segment on The Geekly Show, she told me she wanted to make a Skylanders one. After a few minutes debating who to make, she settled on Kaos because, well, he is bald. That was her number one reason. So here is some DIY step by step on how to make your own Kaos Skylanders Pumpkin!
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!
My girls are super in to crafts. They love to create gifts for family members – especially around the holidays and for birthdays. So when I asked them if they wanted to come up with some fun valentines, they jumped at the chance. Something that they love almost as much as crafting is Welch’s Fruit Snacks. My oldest always takes one to school with her for lunch and my youngest enjoys one at home daily as well. We had an absolute blast designing valentines for our family and friends together – and snacking on Welch’s Fruit Snacks of course!
I am a huge Star Wars fan and am currently counting down the days until Rogue One: A Star Wars Story© TM Lucasfilm LTD is out in theaters. So imagine how thrilled I was to hear that Kleenex brand is partnering with Lucasfilm LTD to launch limited edition boxes featuring Rogue One: A Star Wars Story designs!
