Poke a pumpkin game

So I'm pretty proud of how my poke a pumpkin game turned out!!

I found the idea on Pinterest! I found orange paper cups from Target and glued them to the black foam board with my hot glue gun. The original pin used plastic cups and she mentioned you might have some melting going on... so I opted for the paper cups instead. Then I found some orange tissue paper and cut it up into little squares. I made sure they were a little larger than the cup opening and just put them over the prizes inside with rubber bands. then I had some extra brown fabric and glued it to the board for the stem! I had some cute Halloween stickers to jazz it up a bit. I found a free chalkboard font website to find the lettering as well. I printed the lettering out on regular paper and used a pencil to write over the letters and kind of indent the board,  I used a white crayon (cause those rarely get used anyway right?!) to trace over the indentations.

This is for Ceej's preschool Halloween party coming up in a couple weeks. He already busted through one.... that kid has no patience! But it was an easy fix. I hope the kiddos like it!

On another note... I found this cute sweater dress at Goodwill over the weekend... of course JDub has no appreciation for my sense of style... but I thought it was cute!

Preparations for Halloween are coming along! I still have a bit of work to do... and if I can come across some white boots that aren't $50 that would save me some time... but oh well. I can make do with what I have. I just love dressing up! May the force be with you!
