Easy Haunted Houses

My wonderful mother-in-law often throws holiday parties for her grandchildren.  Last year one of the party activities was making haunted houses - a fun and easy craft.  

Materials needed:
  • birdhouses (you can usually find these for under $1 at Michael's or similar craft stores)
  • paint or permanent markers
  • stickers
Another item I recommend using is a dollar store plastic tablecloth.  Since the colder temps mean you will likely be working indoors, spread the tablecloth on your work area, let the kids go at it, and then toss the mess-containing tablecloth in the trash when done.

It's almost spooky how easy these are to make, but my children loved it!
