Save Your Milk Cartons

Here is a cute craft idea that I found on Family Fun. You can add them to your porch,walkway etc.. 
Clean plastic gallon milk jugs
Black permanent marker
Craft knife
String of 50 clear low-wattage holiday lights
Draw ghost eyes and mouths on the jugs. Tip: Leave the caps on while you do this, so the jugs don't dent.Use the craft knife to cut a half-dollar-size hole in the back of each jug (a parent's job). Arrange the ghosts near each other and string the lights between them, stuffing several bulbs into each of the jugs.

My Halloween Treats: Lift-the-Flap & Scratch-and-Sniff
Reviewed on Amazon--"This is an overall pretty lame book. The story is focused on absolutely nothing but candy. The peppermint, chocolate and peanut butter cup scents are repulsive. The bubble gum smells like nothing really. The apple is the only one that smells good (although absolutely nothing like apples). The only thing at all redeeming about this book is that it is shaped like a little pumpkin treat bag. I'd say this book is a pass." To Purchase

Witches' Night Before Halloween
Reviewed on Amazon--"I loved this book, and so did the children I read it with! The text has a familiar style and tells the story of some creative witches preparing Halloween night for their children. It rhymes and invites kids to repeat lines they like. The theme is Halloween-creepy but it is not scary at all (so it's really child-appropriate) and the kids loved the illustrations. You've never seen witches like these before- all manner of Halloween beasties are drawn so well and there is a surprise on every page. Great for kids under age 10 or so with wit and humor that will entertain the adults reading the book too! Great for the season and highly recommended!" To Purchase
