I love wreaths, they are the perfect way to decorate and although I made a Halloween wreath last week I wanted to share how my son got in on the fun too. We actually made this one weeks ago. This Halloween craft was fun for both of us I love the organic look to it. If you don’t have a paper plate to use any cardboard cut into a circle will do!
- Gather your materials. You will need dried black beans, dried orange lentils, a paper plate, orange ribbon, white glue, bowls to mix , a spoon and scissors.
- Start by having your child mix the black beans and orange lentils. It was at this point that I got the idea for this sensory tub. My son loved this step.
- While they play with the beans and lentils add glue, lots and lots of glue.
- Add the beans and lentils. It was hard getting photos of this because I was helping him drizzle them on.
- Keep going until all the glue is covered.
- Let dry – I popped it outside in the sun to dry faster!
- When it’s all dry cut out the middle.
- Shake off any loose lentils and beans.
- Add an orange ribbon.
- Hang up !

Dragon’s Halloween by Dav Pilkey. The kids love Dragon. Actually I love Dragon too. He’s such a lovable character. He has a few books out . The Halloween book has 3 mini Halloween stories. Dragon’s personality and natural innocence is so childlike , I think that’s why we all love him so. Dragon is written by the same author as Captain Underpants, which explains some of the humour.
Pumpkinheadby Eric Rohman. I love, love, love the artwork in this book, all printed from carvings. The story is cute too, about a boy with a pumpkin for a head. One day he looses his head and adventure follows. Same author / illustrator as My Friend Rabbit .
