Halloween Cootie Catcher Game
Those with little one’s stuck indoors for self isolation.. I am super excited to share these Halloween Cootie Catchers for a client – it comes with “tokens” so you can cut those out hide them around the house and have an indoor Scavenger Treats Hunt. Hope it is of help! (Free download) – there is also a quiz version.
Paper Halloween Crafts – Combined with other materials or recyclables
I am not sure if these “strictly” speak counting as pure “Paper Halloween Crafts” as often they do involve, some other material.. but because said “other material” is recycled… I thought you may like to see them too.. as after all, you just need to add a little paper/ tissue paper in order to transform said recyceld item into something fabulously Halloween-y.. right?
