On our last trip to DC's Playseum the art instructor taught us a cool trick - let your toddler paint and paint and paint. Once his/her artwork dries bring out some googly eyes (like these) and let your toddler attach them onto his/her artwork. All of a sudden a big blob looks like a creature worthy of framing. Plus, it's a super easy way to have younger children help decorate for Halloween. Monsters everywhere = scary awesomeness.
