Pinterest Roundup: DIY Halloween Kids Craft

I have to admit it, I am falling in love with Pinterest. It is a visual soundboard like no other. So, I have decided to do something fun and start Pinterest Roundups. Since, I write about children, parents and education, my pins will usually be related to that subject and not fashion or politics. Sorry! But, hope you enjoy what I find for you.

Halloween is right around the corner, and if you are stuck at the idea of decorating your house then look no further. Check out these ideas I gathered from Pinterest.

This Spider Web Mobile is easy to create with balloons, some yarn and some white glue. You kids will surely enjoy getting their hands dirty for this one. My two cents on this is that you could choose neon colored yarns like orange and green to make it even more spooky. Plus, maybe even hang it on your porch!
