How’s this for some scarrrrrry fun!!! (sorry, photo removed from Flickr)
Found this craft project on Martha Stewart’s site, kind of a ‘fresh’ look at pumpkins! The instructions to make these are at:
I remember Halloween as a child, like it was yesterday. We REALLY made a night of it then. Often the tricker-treaters were still out and about after midnight and all was well; the streets were a lot safer for children then.
Costumes: the planning began weeks in advance. Gypsy, princess, Carmelite nun (go figure!!!!) to name but three of my fav. Halloween disguises. And the candy….yikes!!!!! The dentists had a field day after the fun was over. Not so much fun then!
As an adult, my fav. dress-up extravaganza: Madame Fettuccine, wish I had that photo to share, what a hoot!!! Black picture hat, black slinky dress, cigarette holder (no smoking though), cat-eye sunglasses and long slinky gloves, red, red lips and LOTS of bling… it was a fun day/night.
What are your favorite memories of Halloween’s past? Costumes, parties, crafts…..?
Hope you (and your children, if you have some to share this special night with) have a safe and fun one this year too!! 🙂
