Perforated Pumpkin Luminaries - A Fun Halloween Cardboard Craft
This year I did not have the energy to go collect a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch and carve it with a toddler, so we tried something new!  We "carved", painted and decorated cardboard pumpkins and made them into perforated pumpkin luminaries.  This method is 'less mess and no stress', using materials you already have on ...

Oversized Kirigami Spider Webs -- a quick DIY Halloween decoration (and game too)!
Growing up, I loved Halloween so much! And I hope my children say the same same day. This year I have decided to start Halloween a bit earlier in the month, and to make up for all the things we can't do -- school Halloween discos and trick-or-treating, I have focussed on the things we ...

Halloween luminaries, a sweet last-minute craft and fun for all ages!
Halloween is not a traditional holiday in the Netherlands, but we have adopted the tradition. The children like to dress up, we decorate the house with spooks and spiders and I make some scary dishes for dinner. We do walk around the neighbourhood -- there's a specific street where people really make an effort to ...

Creepy Critter Collage -- Halloween Craft Fun
This was one of those 'see-as-you-make' projects after school with some friends, and we love the end result of our creepy critter collages! You only need a few materials (but can easily improvise with what you have at home). And it takes about ten minutes to make one, adding a bit of halloween creepiness to ...

Papier-Mâché Pumpkins -- fun Halloween decoration
It's October, which means Halloween excitement is happening our house. It also means we have some fun Halloween crafts up our sleeve for the next few weeks. But I was reminded of our papier-mâché pumpkin we made last year! Actually, we made a whole box of fruit and vegetables, but really,  just making pumpkins would be ...

Apple Print Pumpkins - Fast and Fun DIY Halloween Decorations
We just returned from a holiday in California and from the minute we arrived we were struck by how many of the houses already had their Halloween decorations up. The kids couldn't get enough of all the ghosts and monsters hanging from people's porches and the front yards decked out like crime scenes. It certainly ...

New video: How to make a superhero costume (a quick and easy DIY!)
On our road trip up the coast of California last month, we stopped for a few days in sunny San Luis Obispo to visit my friend Mo from Pipsticks who recently moved from London with her husband and their four kids. It was so fun to get all our kids together and to explore this charming little ...

Last Minute Halloween Costumes
This year for Halloween Henrik is going as a bat and Maja will be Red Riding Hood.  I like to keep Halloween costumes simple, something we have at home or they can wear over and over again as dress up. Henrik has been talking about being a bat for Halloween for a long time now ...

Pink Flamingo Halloween Costume
This post is not about our favourite take away pizza restaurant here in Paris called Pink Flamingo, but about a Halloween costume! As you might remember, I am a huge fan of the HM/ Unicef collection that is available at the moment, especially as Halloween is around the corner. The costumes are super cute and ...

Autumn craft -- A not-so-scary spiderweb
I grew up in the countryside and have seen enough big hairy spiders in my bedroom to infect me with a mild form of arachnophobia. But this spiderweb my daughter made is allowed to hang in my house... Just use a chestnut for the centerpiece, pierce 5 holes (a metal skewer works), insert wooden skewers ...

Personalized Halloween party bags
I can't believe we're well into October already! And Halloween is around the corner... Here in the UK, Halloween gets nowhere near the amount of attention as it does in America, and a 'Halloween party' is a bit of a novelty... but the American in me loves the idea (the costumes, the candy, the pumpkins!). ...

Jack-o-lantern clementines
Halloween is definitely not an Italian tradition, but in recent years around this time of the year we do see more pumpkins and orange stuff in the grocery stores. Funnily enough the only costumes accepted are spooky ones, which I'm not too sure are very appropriate for children. Nonetheless it's another occasion to have some ...

Last-minute DIY Halloween costumes
Thankfully my boys let me off the hook this year. The older one has decided he wants to be a ghost for Halloween (how easy is that?!) and the other one is happy to use his brother's costume from last year. We're set. But... I did have a temporary freak-out last week when I realized ...

Before we finish our week dedicated to back to school, we wanted to highlight an interesting post about how schools differ drastically around the world and why Switzerland had it so right! “School in Zurich is idyllic. From walking to school alone to days in the forest, kids are taught independence from an early age. Instead of helicopter parenting, kids are self sufficient, self reliant, and find their own way.” more from @mominzurich, link in bio.
