Disney Planes makes its way onto store shelves everywhere tomorrow (11/19). If you and your kids are already Disney Cars fan then this is exciting news! Disney Planes is available on DVD, Blu Ray and in 3D.
Disney sent us a review copy of Planes a couple weeks ago. My nine year old was so excited when our UPS guy dropped the DVD off at our door because he has been obsessed with seeing it since it’s release in theaters.
Disney Planes is a feel good animated comedy for both kids and their families. It is no surprise that Disney Planes is predictably Disney Cars but with talking planes instead of talking cars.
With the Halloween season in full swing and trick or treat drawing near, it’s time to conjure up some fun crafts for the kids if you haven’t done so already. Today we have a really cute craft for you. It is one that can be made from ordinary household items. We call this the Halloween toilet paper roll creature. Yep, our creature isn’t creatively named but it is creatively made. It’s lots of fun and easy for older kids to do all on their own with minimal direction. From the photo below you will see that my 9 year old son created every creature except the wings for the bat.
Woody, Buzz, and the rest of the Toy Story gang come together in a new made for tv Halloween special. If you and your kids are huge Toy Story fans like us then this is a special you definitely don’t want to miss. It is sure to become a Halloween tradition.

Here’s The Toy Story of Terror Trailer Special:
One of our most favorite traditions on Halloween as a family is carving something new in our pumpkins every single year. Last year our two boys decided on a Minecraft creeper and the Transformer’s Decepticon patch. Below are our carved pumpkins and a link to the free templates/stencils that we used for our creations. Enjoy!
Catching up on our crafting today, we also created this cute mini marshmallow ghost. This is our own colorful spin on the ones that are making their way across the web this week. Who knew that mini marshmallows had so many uses? Anyway, this one is very easy. All you need are some mini marshmallows( white), black construction paper, glue, and foam stickers. We bought our foam stickers from Michael’s a few years ago and still have a lot left. Glue the mini marshmallows in the form of ghost. You can even fill it in all the way if you like. Decorate and display! Below is the final product! Enjoy creating one with your toddlers and older kids.
Today my 9 year old homeschooler and I came up with the idea of putting marshmallows in a jar and calling them ghosts. I’m absolutely sure it is not an original idea after I browsed the internet and found various versions of them. However, this little creation here is all our own and we love it. We call this craft ghosts in a jar. It can also be used as an offbeat decoration piece in your home if you are like me and are quite whimsical. We also read “Say Boo” by Lynda Graham-Barber to go with this craft. You can buy the book on Amazon. The link is here: Say Boo!: A Sticker Book
Below you will find clear pictures of our craft and a list of supplies needed to create your very own Ghosts In A Jar!
