I recently saw this awesome homemade Halloween banner at Organize and Decorate Everything. I simply fell in love with it! I showed it to my kids who were as excited about it as I was. So we made our own!
Ours isn't nearly as pretty as the original one that Leanne made. But interesting things happen when kids ages 8, 6, 4, 3, and 1 are turned loose with markers, paper, and glue. Of course, Mama helped out the little ones a bit, and I cut most of the triangles out (can you pick out the one my daughter cut out herself?). Some of them got turned in wonky directions, but they're all fun!
Here's a ghost, some unknown one-year-old creation, and Frankenstein:
A jack-o-lantern, an owl, and a vampire:
Another unidentified one-year-old creation, a candy corn, and a spider:
A mummy, a ghost, and a werewolf:
Another candy corn, another jack-o-lantern, and another vampire (sorry for the blurriness).
I love the ideas the kids came up with!! It was so much fun and so easy. What a great way to spend a rainy morning!
