20 Great Maternity Halloween Costumes You Can Find On Amazon

Can you believe that Halloween is right around the corner? Is it just me or does it seem like this year is just flying by? This year my best friend and trick-or-treat partner in crime is pregnant! So we wanted to look for some cute maternity Halloween costumes for her to wear on our many festive adventures we plan on going to this year. I was pleasantly surprised on how many cute maternity Halloween costumes that there were on Amazon! I thought that there must be others out there that were looking for their own costumes so I wanted to make a list of the top 20 that we found. Enjoy! Continue reading

DIY Poke-A-Pumpkin Halloween Party Game

Halloween is in 3 days! Can you believe it? This year we are throwing a Halloween/Birthday party for my nephew who is turning 2 and we decided to save some money by doing most of the decorations, games, and food ourselves. So today I wanted to share with you a really fun halloween party game that we made for the kids called Poke-a-Pumpkin. It’s safer (and easier to clean up) than a pinata and still just as fun! The whole project costs around $10! Let’s check it out!

Here is how to make this DIY Poke-a-Pumpkin Halloween Party Game:

You will need:

  • 20 orange plastic cups
  • orange tissue paper
  • small prizes (stickers, bouncy balls, rings, etc)
  • thick poster board (or cardboard!)
  • glue
  • paint

Step 1: First, arrange your orange cups on your board in the shape of a pumpkin and fill with prizes! I would recommend not putting anything too heavy in the cups because the board will be turned sideways and you don’t want the tissue paper to rip with the weight of heavy prizes.

Step 2: Next cut your tissue paper into squares that are a little larger than your cups. Using a glue stick cover the top of your cup with tissue paper. Glue down the excess paper and let dry completely.

Step 3: After your tissue paper has dried you will want to glue your cups to your board. I used super glue for this part because it dries fast and strong.

Step 4: Get your paint on! Paint a stem and some vines and make sure to label your game!

That’s it! A fun Halloween Party Game in 4 easy steps for about $10! The kids will love it!

DIY Candy Wreath-Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and I love to make themed crafts for the occasion! In my opinion, why buy something when you can make it for cheaper (and make a memory out of it?). This craft is so easy to do, and you can get your kids involved (as long as they don’t eat all the candy corn!). This project all together cost me under $10 and looks great on my door!Continue reading

I don’t know about you, but I love Halloween crafts, and the easier the better! I spent the week working outside of the home in a warehouse to help out a friend and they had tons of pallets, so I got to thinking about how I could use them for a fun craft. (Because that’s what we bloggers do, always thinking of ways we can be creative!) and I thought it would be really fun to make a Halloween Pallet Project that involved making fun faces!Continue reading
