Saturday Link List - Halloween is upon us

Halloween is just around the corner, and if you celebrate with a party, have kids who plan to go out or are  handing out treats of some sort, here's some ideas for you.  There's still time.  

What about making your own props?  There's a whole list from eHow, like this Halloween head.  

It's real important that if your child is dressing up and has a gun, stress that the gun should never comes out of the holster.  Many children have been harmed by others, including police, when their toys have been mistaken for the real things!  Here are some more safety tips: 

What about placing a Halloween avatar on your blog page?  There are animated ones and clip art, just for fun.  Of course, page one has the best, but there are eight pages to look at!


Make Halloween more than just fun and games!  What, you say? 

 Rose, from Random Creative, wrote a HubPages article about Halloween Math for Kids.  Great idea for those who are homeschooling their kids or just want to add a little sweetness to their kid's math lessons!

Whether you celebrate Halloween or not, October is the time (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) that pumpkins and squash are ripe in the garden and can be found in stores.  Why not buy some and decorate your house?  It's a fun family activity and makes everything festive.  Here are a few examples.

Why norecycle some of your pumpkin seeds?  This is called "Pumpkin Seed Pumpkin Fall Craft" on the AllKids Network.

Over on Pinterest, there are a few people who put together some Halloween Decor boards.  Jennifer Speer is a favorite of mine, and has great ideas.  Now if you're looking for unusual pumpkin foods at Pinterest,, try Heather Dominas' board, called Recipes to try.  They look delicious and many are healthy!

This has got to be my favorite pumpkin craft idea for this season:  a  cute Book Page Pumpkin you can make from an old paperback book.  This is from Heather, at our life in a click

Have fun and be safe!
