If you are trying to decide on the perfect homemade costume,
turn your little one into a sweet M&M. MOM Magazine reader
Evonne Walls provides a a tutorial that is simple to follow, even
if sewing isn't your strong suit.
Instead of affixing the M&M with Velcro you can sew straps
or strings into the shoulder area and on the sides so you can tie
the costume on.
Still trying to figure out Halloween costumes for the kiddos?
Think outside the box - a cardboard box, that is. Check out all the
great costume ideas using cardboard here, like Mia's
American Doll costume.
Did you know that MOM Magazine has a Flickr Group?
We'd love for you to share your photos with us, and also use it as
a place for inspiration.
Let's start out by sharing pictures of your carved pumpkins. New
Here is what you need to do:
***Photo sharing tip*** I use Picasa (not the web version, the
one you download) on my computer to organize my photos. From
Picasa, I go through my photos and "star" the ones I'm going to
share/upload to the web (for Facebook, blog, Flickr, etc.). I then
select only my "starred" photos and export them in a smaller,
web-friendly size to a separate folder I have just for the purpose
of web-sharing. So when I go to upload photos to Flickr, I just
need to search for my folder I just exported to, select all the
photos, and click upload. It's easier for me because I can get just
the photos I want, and they are already resized to the size they
need to be.
Ok, so not to toot my own horn or anything, but I'm Room Mom for
Colby's second grade class. Now, I take my duties very serious and
plan to make this a super fun year for his class. I love to throw a
The class' Halloween party is this Friday and I've already got
all nearly everything done. I've organized a donation list of items
we need for the party. Had the cupcakes ordered. Decorations are
waiting on the dining room table. I must say
that the parents of the students in this class are
awesome...they donated many of the items for the goodie bags and
also the food/drinks.
One of my big contributions as Room Mom this year is that I
am going to make up holiday-themed activity packets for the kids to
use during the week leading up to their respective parties. This is
no small feat! The first packet for the Halloween holiday is jam
packed with Halloween games, puzzles, mazes and even a page of kid
friendly Halloween jokes. It's sure to be a hit!
My son holding one of the super fun Halloween activities booklet
that I made for his entire class. Here are some of the activities
in the booklet:
A really fun spider maze! There's also a page of Halloween
This Halloween activity book (and the ones to follow this school
year!) are sure to make me Queen of the Classroom.
