Today Jordan Ferney is giving away two copies of my book Playful: Fun Projects to Make With + For Kids over on Oh Happy Day! Woo hoo! Head on over there and mention why you would like to add this book to your library for a chance to win! Crossing my fingers for you!
I’m also offering templates and a DIY on Oh Happy Day! for these silly little Halloween paper plate cat and pumpkin masks, inspired by my projects in Playful. They are perfect for an afternoon Halloween crafting bash with little friends (you totally still have time to put one together! Especially with how simple these are). Add a few of our past spooky crafty creations from the past and you’re more than set!
I asked some of my favorite Playful models, Creed and Lydia to help me with these masks. I can’t believe how much they’ve grown in a year! These best friends modeled for my duct tape bird costume. Creed is also in my paper plate animal mask shoot as well so he’s a pro at this. I’m crazy about his scarecrow stance above! I’m also crazy about these amazing hand sewn pants from one of my favorite sources for great kids wear, Zanzibach. I want all the pants she makes. Perfect for my boys.
