I can’t believe Halloween is almost here! There’s still plenty of time to enjoy fun activities and create cool art projects with the kids. I had the opportunity to share some simple Halloween crafts with viewers of the Daytime TV Show on WFLA Channel 8. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of my set up at the studio. Silly me. It was a lot of fun decorating pumpkins and making a cardboard ghost with Deanna Moore. She was an amazing host who made me feel comfortable on air. I will share all the details on how to make an easy cardboard ghost for Halloween.
