Halloween Friday

Friday was a busy day and I didn't get Tot School in. We had to get a haircut, do some shopping, finish Alex's Halloween costume and go to his Halloween Gymboree Party.

We did read Pumpkin Eye by Denise Fleming
We picked this one up at the library the other day. It is a great Halloween book with short, catchy text, bright, attention getting illustrations.

I also did get a chance to make Alex a Halloween ispy jar.  I got the idea from Chasing Cheerios post.
I used a mayonnaise jar (the only empty jar I had on hand), some black beans and some creatures from the craft and dollar store.
I glued the cover on with my hot glue gun. Alex liked finding the creatures inside on the way to his Halloween party (about a 1/2 hour ride)

So Friday night's big event was Alex's Gymboree Halloween party. I made his costume and finished up the last buttons and holster during his nap.  He had a blast as you can see in the photos.
