Halloween Fun

I have been working on a Halloween Fun package for my grandchildren. I saw this idea on Martha Stewart's website about a month ago. Her idea was to make these little books out of travel items collected on a vacation. I decided to do Halloween instead. Each little book is the size of an ATC. Inside I stapled two blank 3x5 cards, trimmed to fit. I have dropped a surprise in some of the books. The kids can glue pictures, put stickers, draw or paint in the little books. I am going to include a bunch of Halloween stickers and a Halloween story book. I think they will have a lot of fun with this!
The little books can then be stored in this plastic pocket sheet. Then you can look at the books or take one out to work on at any time and return it to its pocket when done. I did two of these -- one for Kara and one for Ryan.

AND, the great benefit is that I used up some of my stash of Halloween goodies!
