As soon as October hits I am really into everything Halloween, and one of my favorite things to do in October is craft with my kids.

Night time seems to come sooner as it gets dark around teatime. Of course my energetic kids stay up past 8 even on a school night. 

I love doing easy paper crafts with them when we finish dinner. One of my favorites is my easy witch gnome craft for kids this Halloween.
