Inside: If you are in a time rush and still want spooky handmade halloween gifts find my super cute picks from etsy.com.
Little scary voice roared behind me and I jumped high with a scream. My heart was beating like a crazy and I could feel goose bumps all over my body. And then – loud contagious laugh. Both, me and my daughter, holding little ghost in her hands, start laughing like crazy, how funny that scene was.
We laugh about it whole breakfast and still, when I think about that morning I have big smile on my face – I mean, how little is needed to scare me
Every morning when I am able to get up earlier than my toddler (i.e. she slept in) I sneak to the kitchen to make coffee and tea and do as much as I can before our busy day starts.
Each time, on those mornings, she will come down from her room silently with little cheese cloth ghost that we made together for last year Halloween and say scarry:
And every time I jump high with a frightened scream. It is easy to scare me when I’m all in my morning ‘tasks’ talking with myself in my head what is my to-do list for today.
But nothing was the first time she did it.
Making crafts that later on become our toys is something that makes us both happy.
Especially me as a mom, to see that my effort is worthwhile. I always try to find something that will blow up her imagination and be simple enough that will encourage open-ended game. We of course have crafts that in the end finish in the garbage, but I love the ones that she chooses to play later on and uses in her imaginative play, like painted lady bug stones or paper bag puppets.

At this moment we are kinda lacking a bit of our crafty time due to all changes in our life. We still do crafts but not as much we used to. So I reached for the place where I can find everything handmade, including themed preschool printables that lately I relay on if I need some extra time for myself.
Searching for open-ended halloween toys I found tons of super cute and spooky halloween stuff for kids and babies that I wanted to share it with you. Not just toys, but cute halloween outfits, sweets, toys and shirts for whole family.

This is obviously just a sneak peek what is out there on etsy.com. Before I started to be ‘regular’ on their website I couldn’t even imagine how creative people can be or what beautiful products can they design. It is enough to say, I never leave empty hands.
… speaking of empty hands… I’m holding that little ghost, that is not even a real ghost, and laughing, how little things, that on a first sight seem so insignificant, can make our life magical.
