Teen/Tween October Take Home Craft (2020)

Aren’t these adorable?? I got the idea (and picture!) from Smart School House. I bought green tealights on Amazon. They were actually white with green lights but when they’re turned on, they make the whole thing glow green so they worked pretty well. I would have preferred the awesome green sparkly ones in the picture…… Continue reading Teen/Tween October Take Home Craft (2020)

Halloween Story Time (2017)

I love Halloween. There are no presents to buy, no big meal to cook, and free candy. I had a small crowd today.
