My house still says it is spring, but the cooler weather, the changing leaves, and my five-year-old say it is fall. Yikes. Time to pull out some autumn and Halloween decorations!
Back in April I posted a recipe to make your own window gel clings. The ones we made in April caught the warm rays from the sun all spring and summer until my five-year-old declared that it was time to start decorating for Halloween.
Please note: This is the first time I have EVER decorated my house for Halloween. You are witnessing something special here, folks 🙂 I’m usually much lazier than this. Last year my son wanted to decorate our house so bad, so I sent him to the neighbor’s house to help them decorate their house for Halloween instead. I didn’t get off so easy this year 🙂
Make Halloween Window Gel Clings
We used orange, black, red, and green food coloring this time. We used the gel food coloring instead of the regular food coloring we used last time, and I can honestly say I didn’t notice a difference. Both work just fine. I left out the glitter this time around. It will probably come back out for our winter/Christmas themed jellies 🙂
We had four cookie cutters – a ghost, a pumpkin, a cat, and a bat. The window jellies turned out wonderful and the kids loved playing in the leftovers. The gelatin is cold and squishy – a great sensory experience for the kiddos!
Also, don’t look too close at my dirty windows! They are clean on the inside, I swear. And if I clean the outside, they just get dirty again and that’s not good enough for me!
