Egg Carton Spiders + Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Another easy craft - this we did last year and the spiders are hanging up again this year!

You'll need an egg carton, black paint, black pipe cleaner, googly eyes, glue, scissors, and some string.

This is a great craft to do even with little ones - Little Miss was only 18 months old at the time and was practicing her fine motor skills while painting. But just to be sure things didn't get too crazy, she was only in a diaper.

And lastly - roasted pumpkin seeds. Delicious! I tried a couple of different recipes this year, but only one of them is worth passing on...

Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
  • 3 cups pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp seasoned salt
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, coat evenly. Spread into even layer on baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes.

I love easy recipes like this because Little Miss can stand on a chair next to me and dump in ingredients as I give them to her. Can't really mess it up too bad. Super fast and yummy!
