Halloween Craft Ideas and FYI

Craft Idea's
~ Instead of carving a pumpkin this year, why not make faces out of felt and glue them onto the pumpkin. Use glue dots to attach the felt eye pieces to the pumpkin. You can also make a nose and a mouth. Heck add a wig if you want. Go crazy with it.

~ I found this idea on Facebook, but I'm going to post my version. I did this and found that there is a new way to do this.. gather together a hand full of toilet paper tubes and multi coloured glosticks. Using a razor blade or sharp knife cut out eyes on both sides of the tube. Then insert a glow stick into the tube and put dark coloured taped on the ends so the light doesn't seep out the sides.  You can do the eyes at different angles if you want. Then after you have at least 5 or 6 made get a hanger and make a mobile out of them. Then once the sun goes down you can hang them in a tree and wait for the kiddies to come around.

Did you know...
~ According to the Nielsen reports we American's spent $787,433 on candy last year! That's a lot of candy folks!!
~ The fear of Halloween is called "Samhainophobia".
~ According to the National Confectioners Association, 72% of households hand out 2-3 pieces of candy on Halloween night to each trick or treater.
~ 78% of parents swipe candy from their child's candy stash. Are you one of them??
