October is a wonderful time to celebrate magic, mummies, monsters and more...
Today’s collection of kids crafts, projects, and activities is inspired by the classic stories: The Monster At The End of This Book by Jon Stone, The BFG by Roald Dahl, and (surprisingly) Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. This playful theme is sure to excite your little monster as we head into autumn.
Earlier this month, I was taken back by this lovely quote…
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” ― Roald Dahl
It got me thinking. I realized one of my favorite things about being a parent is that our children help us re-discover magic we’ve grown to overlook.
And my friends, October is a wonderful time to celebrate magic, mummies, monsters and more …
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
