Spooktacular Play Date Craft & Game

October 1, 2010

We posted our first Halloween Play Date yesterday and were so excited to share it with all of you. We hope you enjoyed all our Savvy finds and fun touches we added to make the Play Date/Party "Spooktacular".

In each of our Play Dates we like to have a recipe, craft and story that is involved as well as coordinates with the theme. Since this was a Halloween themed Play Date, the possibilities for a fun and age appropriate craft were endless! So, we thought what better craft and tradition than decorating a pumpkin? We wanted to be Savvy on the idea of the craft. We thought if we incorporated some Velcro, felt, googly eyes and some glittery pom-poms, the kids would have a pumpkin they could play with all month long, changing the face of their pumpkin like a "Mr. Potato Head".

Here is what you will need for supplies:

Plastic pumpkins (we got ours from The Dollar Tree) or real ones

Paint (if your kiddo wants to make a more spooky pumpkin)

Googly Eyes (Dollar Tree)

Velcro (Dollar Tree)

Felt (JoAnnes)


Pom-poms (Dollar Tree) or any other decorative pieces you may want to add

****** Depending on the age of your child and or the amount of kids participating, we went ahead and pre-cut the felt into various shapes and sizes to make the assembly a little bit easier.

The finished product and some Happy lil' Pumpkins!!!!

When Amy Locurto from Living Locurto posted these Free Printables, we knew we had to use them!!!! Amy, who we think is the 'Queen of all that is Savvy', used soup cans to decorate and transform an ordinary table into a swanky, Fall centerpiece that would dress up any event! We decided to instead use the printables as a game for the kids to play.

Using soup cans we covered them with the festive printables and made a cute "Toss the Eyeball" game for the kids to enjoy!!!!
It was a Fun Day....for all who got to Play. We Even kept the ghosts Away.
