Washi Tape Clothespin Magnets + Halloween Coloring Pages

Monday, October 10, 2016

Oaklyn is definitely getting more and more fun as she gets older, but she's also getting quite a bit busier!
Just playing with random toys isn't cutting it anymore...
She wants to be exploring new things and learning new skills every minute of the day.
It's keeping me quite busy on top of everything else I have to do, but I love watching her little mind learn and grow.
I've been trying to think of more arts and crafts projects to do with her since the weather is starting to get colder.
We still have a few park days left, but once the snow hits we'll be inside most of the day.
I've recently introduced her to coloring and she loves it!
Sometimes she isn't all that interested, but most of the time she thinks it's so fun that she gets to create.
She definitely got that gene from me ;) I've always been more on the creative side.
I did an instagram promotional post with Scotch and we had so much fun with this Halloween craft that I thought I would post it on my blog as well!
This craft is so simple and fun and would be perfect for every age.
I think I'll be making some for every holiday and season!

Supplies Needed:
-Washi Tape - I used Scotch brand from Walmart
-Orange paint (or whatever color you want, orange is perfect for Halloween)
-Mini magnets (I got these at Walmart too)
-My coloring pages!

How To Make:
1) Paint your clothespins. Only paint one of the top sides since you will be putting washi tape on one side. I only did one pretty thin coat and they look great!
2) While letting them dry, print out coloring pages! Page One | Page Two | Page Three
3) Apply Washi Tape! Just place it like normal tape edge to edge trimming the excess.
4) Hot Glue Magnets to the back
5) Color with your kids while listening to Monster Mash ;)

See, so easy!
This was our Sunday craft and our whole family got involved. 
As you can tell, Hunter and I had fun coloring too ;)
Now we really feel like parents with Oaklyn's art hanging on our fridge!

Now I'm off to go work on our Halloween costumes!

All my love,
Aleigh Joy
