you will need:
6-8 Potatoes (depending on size) I like reds
1/3 cup mayonnaise
Onion soup mix


Preheat oven to 425 degrees*

Cut up potatoes into small wedges toss into a bowl big enough to mix them in. Add the mayonnaise and a packet of onion soup mix. Stir to coat potatoes. Spray an 9*13 pan or spread out on cookie sheet bake for 35 minutes or until done to desired crispness.

* I made chicken to go with these that needed to be baked at 375 degrees so Cooked them about ten minutes longer at the lower temperature.

Kid Friendly Pumpkin Decorating

Painting pumpkins

Grandma grew mini pumpkins so we got bunch here is the kind we used these would be fun projects to do on any kind though

This is the paint I used I would recommend something more waterproof if going to keep pumpkin outside this however is easy to clean up!

Having fun painting

Finished pumpkins

*A tooth pick worked best for stacking the pumpkins together

Melting crayons to decorate

Both of my kids loved this project

As the crayons melt add more colors. We used an embossing heat tool to melt them. Maybe a hair dryer would work also? If you try it let me know!

Kids Halloween Craft

My little one and I had fun with this Halloween spider and ghost craft yesterday.

You will need:
Popsicle sticks
googly eyes
black/white paint
black pipe cleaners
Elmer's glue
Maybe some tape
card stock or fridge magnet

I cut my card stock to the width I wanted the spider/ghost to be.* We then glued the Popsicle sticks on to the card stock and let the paint dry. Once paint was dry we glued on the googly eyes, then glued on the legs we used 2 to pipe cleaner each cut into froths. Glue on the legs.( I ended up taping them because my little crafter got too much glue and it never dried so I wiped off and taped them on. with clear packing tape. I then cut another piece of the black pipe cleaner about the same size of the legs. and made a loop on the back so that the spider could be hung up. 

*For the ghost I used an magnet and glued it on that instead of the card stock. It was one of those advertisement ones that comes on the phone book.

And an Elmo one because my little Elmo fan wanted to make Elmo. Elmo's nose is a Gatorade bottle cap.
