October 24, 2016
Halloween is just around the corner. We are being bombarded everywhere with advertisements of candy, treats, and holiday festivities . You might be wondering what you can do that is fun but natural to celebrate this holiday? Here are some ideas that you can easily do and have fun at the same time.
Carving a pumpkin is one of the most tradition things you can do for Halloween. And the best part of a fresh pumpkin is the delicious seeds perfect for roasting. If you are adventurous and
more nontraditional you can paint or Duck tape your pumpkin to decorate it. If you have children it is fun to dress or theme decorate your pumpkin to match their favorite book character.
Decorate your home or office space in natural decor using dried flowers and leaves. Try gluing dried beans, dried corn kernels, and seeds on candles and mini pumpkins to add to your spooky, fall holiday embellishments. Another great idea to carry you through the rest of the fall season is a fall tree. Decorate it now with witch, ghost, jack-o-lantern, and bat ornaments. Then after Halloween change your ornaments to fall leaves, pumpkins, squash, dried corn cobs, and turkeys!
Make your own Halloween treats. When you create your own treats you are in control of purchasing natural ingredients that you prefer to have in your recipes.
What about creating a Halloween playlist? Or if you have a tech device that will allow you to download an app like Spotify you have access to playlists that other people have shared! You can include classic tracks like Michael Jackson's Thriller, Ray Parker Jr.'s Ghostbusters, Stevie Wonder's Superstition, or Somebody's Watching Me by Rockwell. Maybe you prefer darker cuts like Rob Zombie's Dragula, Marilyn Manson's This is Halloween, or Jekyll and Hyde by Five Finger Death Punch. Add your favorites and maybe you'll find a few new favorites as well.
A very enjoyable activity whether it be in the days leading up to Halloween or an after trick-or-treating event is watch a Halloween movie. Children's classics like Peanut's It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, ET the Extra-Terrestrial , and any Scooby Doo movie or episode would satisfy parents and children alike.
If you prefer something more jump out of your pants scary try the Halloween series movies, The Crow, or The Exorcist. So pop some air popped or stove top popped popcorn and enjoy an old favorite or try a new movie!
