As You Prepare For Trick or Treaters, Scary Costumes and Lots of Hair Raising Fun Let Our Family Help You Have The Best Halloween Bash On The Block.

Our kids grew up on a farm in the country. We usually did not have Trick or Treaters because we lived so far out but we always threw a big Halloween Party for our family. I had boxes of costumes kids and adults could choose from ( I always shopped after Halloween to pick up some new ones for the following year) the kids would have fun picking the perfect one.

We would get everyone dressed up and the house was all decorated inside and out and the Party was always a Memorable One. We had lots of Halloween Food, Games, Music, and then we broke a Pinata stuffed with lots of candy for all the kids to have a bag.

Our family still talks about our Halloween Parties and would love to go back to this awesome house and do it again!

I found a few Halloween Party Ideas For This Year ENJOY …..

A Fun Way To Pass Out Candy From HGTV….. Turn a Pumpkin Into a Candy Dish

 

original_Layla-Palmer-Halloween-Pumpkin-Candy-Dish-beauty_s3x4.jpg.rend.hgtvcom.616.822

Start a Family Tradition This Year With The Great Pumpkin!   Give Your Candy to “The Great Pumpkin”  The Great Pumpkin is a BRILLIANT Idea, Really.
 Let Your Kids pick out 5 pieces of candy from Trick or Treating to keep, then put the rest on the porch on Halloween night.

When they wake up in the morning, they see that ‘The Great Pumpkin’ replaced that unhealthy candy with a few small toys and art supplies.

 Parents! Be sure to dig through the goodies and hide a stash of your favorite treats before the Great Pumpkin shows up and walks away with all that deliciousness. . . 🙂

*Have a Fun-Filled Labor Day*

Happy-Labor-Day-Kids

For a lot of people, Labor Day means two things: a day off and the end of summer. But why is it called Labor Day?

Observed on the first Monday in September, Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894.

Labor Day also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events.

 

0c06e1ab43b956a4b7113168542934c6

 

Here are a few ideas on how to enjoy your Labor Day weekend:

Visit a Festival, Street Fair or Other Public Celebration

 

2004-street-fair-pix

 Neighborhood Block Party: Get to know your neighbors with an old-fashioned block party. Ask people to bring games and food to share. Take the kids to a discount movie that they really wanted to see but missed.

Day Trip It: Pull out a map, pick a tourist destination within 2-3 hours, and plan a day-long adventure to your new destination!

Take 10% Off First Purchase w/Code: CORN10 - 728 x 90

  Why not Pack Up The Tents and hit the nearest Campground for some much deserved rest and relaxation? Family campgrounds will often host a variety of events just for the holiday, but plan early.

Most campsites book quickly for holiday weekends, so reserve your space well in advance.

Labor Day”

Throw up our feet,
start up the grill,
toss on the ‘burgers
and we’ll all eat our fill.

Put up the tools,
watch the grass grow,
forget the leak
and the commode overflow.

The dishes can wait;
go out and play.
There’s good reason to be lazy…
it’s called Labor Day!

How About a DIY Backyard Quidditch Game For Little Muggles.

Well if you answered yes, you’ve probably played Jenga and chances are you’re a good player too! To make a DIY outdoor version for this Labor Day get out some 2×4’s and cut them into approx 10 ½ ” long pieces.
