Things are on the mend here, I promise this will be a Negative Nellie-free post!

We dug out the Halloween box from the basement and are going to start making the “graveyard” this afternoon. The whole “graveyard” in the special project of my oldest, he has mapped the layout and is itching to set up up (and rearrange endlessly thereafter).  We have drawn up plans for the Haunted Dollhouse and are planning our attack, I have a feeling this will be my baby project of the holiday.

We made these laboratory specimen jars (please say with La-bore-a-toreeeee with a creepy voice, we always do).  I saw the idea right after Halloween last year and we’ve been collecting bits all year in anticipation.  I found the canning jars at Charlie and Pats (world’s best thrift store) and since I couldn’t can my own can if I had to, it’s a perfect use for them.  My son just mixed food coloring and water for the mad scientist colors and added bugs, rats, skulls, eyeballs and the like.  We had planned to try some jars filled with hair gel but we had the creamy kind not the gel. Suspended gross stuff!

What are you doing for Halloween if anything?  We’re always looking for spooky fun tips and tricks.

And treats, always treats!
