Pumpkin for Babies!

There's only so many pumpkin pies a person can eat! Looking for something else to do with all that left over  pumpkin!  Why not feed it to your baby!

Pumpkins contain some of the best nutritional compounds ever. They are highly loaded with Vitamin A and beta carotene. Beta Carotene is one of the plant carotenoids that when eaten and digested, turns into Vitamin A in the human body. Beta Carotene may reduce the risk of cancer as well as heart disease. It also may be responsible for combating or putting off the degenerative effects of ageing.  Pumpkins are also good sources of potassium, protein, and iron.

Halloween Safety Tips!

On a more serious note than our previous tampon crafts and Halloween fun, please be safe this Halloween! Here are a few tips to remember:

* Use reflective tape, glow sticks or flashing lights on your childs costume so that they will be easily seen in the dark.
* Ensure that costumes are not too long so that they don't trip up!
* Remind your children to stay away from open fires and candles.
* Use face paint rather than masks.
* Whenever possible, stay on side walks and cross at cross walks and remind children to look both ways before crossing the street, even at crosswalks.
* Bring along a small flash light each in case you encounter really dark areas or just need to be seen.
* If your children are old enough to trick or treat alone, have them share their route with you and encourage them to stick to that route.
* Always trick or treat in groups.
* Tell your children to NEVER enter a persons house or car, regardless of their offer of treats.
* Remind children that there is no snacking along the way, parents should inspect all treats for opened wrappers and other dangers.

Tampons of Terror

I for one have NEVER consider tampons as a readily available crafting material!   But this site really proves otherwise.... 

These ghosts are my personal favorite; 

But I believe the tampon turkey takes the cake!
