Making halloween masks for 18" Dolls and Alton's Pumpkin Pie

After a visit to the Pumpkin Patch, the kids wanted to host a Fall party for their dolls. They have 'Our Generation Girls' which are the same size as the 'American Girl Dolls'.

Rather than make costumes for them I suggested we make masks. While Miss K finished off her math Mini Piwi and I traced mask shapes onto card and collected up some decorating supplies.

Here is what they come up with before Daddy arrived home from work.

Later Mini Piwi asked me to help her thread some of the leaf decorations onto floss to make a dolls necklace.

The Party included eating the Pie we made from a Pumpkin we chose at the Pumpkin Patch.

 We used Alton Brown's Pumpkin Pie recipe which has a base made from Gingersnaps. Mini Piwi had a great time bashing the cookies into crumbs.
The Pie was very popular!
