For a couple of years now, I have been saving pill bottles. I hate to just throw them into the land fill and I figured there must be a crafty way to recycle them. Guess what! I came up with a way!
Every year for Halloween, our church does a chili cook-off with grilled hot dogs out in the back parking lot, and then we open our trunks and many people decorate them for the holiday and the kids go around Trunk or Treating. It is a lot of fun and give the kids a safe place to celebrate with people they know. And, actually, we attract people from around the neighborhood as well!
Well, like I said, many people decorate their cars. I always want to, and I have done a few little things, but frankly when my kids were young, it was all I could do just to get them costumed! But, now that I am an empty nester, all I have to worry about is decorating my car! So far, I've come up with this cute little lighted garland.
Seriously, kids would have so much fun doing these. Here is how I did it.
This garland should light up the hatch of my car pretty well, along with a real Jack-O-Lantern or two. Now I shall see where else my mind wanders for the decorations this year!
It is getting to be that fun time of year again with loads of activities for the little ones with all of the holidays coming! A really nice gift for grandparents are those photo books! My son and DIL gave my husband and I one of our grandson's first year and we absolutely love it! I am thinking of compiling one with all of my grandchildren together.
Mixbooks looks like a great company for doing just that. I have heard many recommendations for them. Have any of you tried their books? When you sign up for their site, you get up to 50% off. They have 405 themes that you can use, or you can start from scratch and totally build your own theme. I think this company is worth checking out! Let me know your experiences if you have already used them.
