Pink Flamingo

Turn a bunch of inexpensive feather boas into a fun flamingo costume for your little one. Pair it with a pink dress and tights, and you have a unique, handmade Halloween costume that won't break the bank.

Classic Witch

This cute little witch's dress is made from one of those ubiquitous black maxi skirts that are all the rage these days. All the materials for this dress were inexpensive and very little sewing is involved, so you will have a fabulous costume in no time and for little money.

Big Yellow School Bus

On Halloween night let your toddlers ride in style by transforming a plain wagon into a bug yellow school. Itíll save their little legs from all of that walking and keep them from wandering off.

When you carve that pumpkin this fall don't toss those pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are a great source of the mineral zinc and they are yummy too! When you toast or roasted and salt pumpkin seeds they have a nutty flavor. Here is how to roast pumpkin seeds: 1. Carve your pumpkin and scoop out the seeds from the inside of the pumpkin using a spoon or ice cream scoop. 2. Rinse pumpkin seeds under cold water and pick out the pulp and strings. 3. Coat the seeds with oil or non-stick cooking spray. 3. Place the pumpkin seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet. 4. Sprinkle with salt and bake at 325 degrees about 25 minutes, checking and stirring after 10 minutes. 5. Let cool and store in an air-tight container. 6. Enjoy!

Halloween is just around the corner and knowing how to have fun and stay safe is important. Dressing up in costumes and eating lots of candy is fun but follow these important safety tips for a ghoulishly good time: Young children should never go trick or treating without an adult. Older children should never trick or treat alone, they should always have at least two buddies. Plan your trick or treat route before you go. Carry at least one flashlight and check the batteries. Take a cellular phone and watch with you if possible. Wear flame retardant costumes. Wait until you get home and your parents check your candy before you eat it. Never go inside a house, only accept treats in the doorway. Be weary of strangers trying to talk to you. Walk, do not run. Make sure to stay on sidewalks. Cross the street at the corner or in a crosswalk. Only visit homes that have their lights on. Following these safety tips and common sense will help you make the most of your Halloween season. Please share some of your own Halloween tips and tricks for keeping the holiday enjoyable.
