Halloween is almost here! I have gathered some fantastic homemade Halloween treat recipes. You can make these with your kids or make them while they are at school for a fun surprise!
Every month, I look forward to getting my BoxyCharm box! The box is only $25 per month and it includes 5 full-size beauty products worth well over $100! Keep reading to see what I got in my box this month!

Overnight Lip Mask
Retail Price $20
My lips get so dry once the weather gets cold, so this came at the perfect time! I tried it out as soon as I opened the box and loved how soft and moisturized it made my lips feel. It is a little thick and sticky feeling, but I can get past that since it works so well.
MALIN + GOETZ
Resurfacing Face Serum
Retail Price $70
I decided to gift this one to my mom because I already have more skin care products than I can use!
Makeup Remover Towelettes
Retail Price $20
These makeup removing towelettes aren’t horrible, but I don’t love them either. They are soft, but have a smell that I don’t like. I would not pay $20 a pack for these.
Spackle Skin Perfecting Primer: Hydrate
Retail Price $32
I just got a primer last month, so I’m not opening this one up until I finish that one.
Milk & Honey Highlighting Palette
Retail Price $38
This palette is beautiful! I don’t use highlighter on a daily bases, but I will use it. I got a similar palette last month, but I like this one better.
Overall, I didn’t love this month’s box. I did like it enough to feel like I got my money worth, but I was disappointed to get very similar items two months in a row. If you get have a subscription, I’d love to hear what you thought of this month’s box!
I know we haven’t even shared any Halloween crafts this year, but as my preschooler and I were talking about modes of transportation, she decided to talk about ways Santa might get around. It was a wonderfully creative conversation. After talking about it, she wanted to make Santa’s boat. It turned out super cute, so I wanted to share it!

Brown Construction Paper
I started by cutting a paper plate in half. After that, I gave my daughter red paint to paint the paper plate.
While we waited for the paint to dry, I drew a rectangle on the brown construction paper and a triangle on the back of the decorative paper for my preschooler to cut out.
Once the plate was completely dry, we flipped it over and glued the rectangle onto the back. Next, we flipped it back and glued the triangle onto the rectangle.
To finish the boat, my daughter made three circles with glue. I helped her pour the sand onto the plate. This part was messy, but so much fun! If you want a less messy option, you could use black construction paper.
The end result of our spur of the moment craft project was a magical boat fit for Santa!
Little learners love pairing a book with an activity or art project! Here are a few suggestions.
