Halloween Activity for Kids: Candy Apple Decorating

Sweet & Salty: Pumpkin Seed Recipe

I had never had any interest in roasting pumpkin seeds, until my youngest came along and literally eats anything & everything "crunchy." Combine it with a fun activity to do with the kiddos?  Golden. Pumpkin Seed Recipe I adore this recipe, because you can make it salty or sweet; depending on the mood you're in!  If it were just for me?? I'd probably put a little chili powder on them, to give them a little "kick." But if kiddos are partaking in the snacking, boiling them in sugar instead of salt, and topping with cinnamon and/or brown sugar, may be more up their...

Halloween Cupcakes {Cookies N Cream}

I had a sweet tooth the other day, and I wanted to make something since my hubby was coming home from being out of town for a week for work.  I like to show him my appreciation when he gets home by baking some treats, to let him know that we love and missed him while he was working so hard.  {Don't let me fool you.  I'm a mom of two young boys, so I don't ALWAYS make this happen.} I'm a fan of making cupcakes, and I was in the cupcake mood... so that's what he got!

Toddler Halloween Craft… BOO!

My toddler has an attention span of about 2 seconds.  So when "craft time," is next on our "to-do" list for the day, I always know it has to be quick, easy, and QUICK! {Yes, I know I said "quick," twice}.  I also want it to contain materials that I have on-hand, because let's face it... I'm not packing two kids in the car to run to the craft store for a toddler craft that will last only a few minutes. With Halloween just a couple of days away, a Halloween craft was a MUST!  So the brainstorming began, {and the...

Pumpkin Painting Fun For Kids

This morning I was trying to think of something fun for my toddler to do, to "shift," from the normal, "Play with trains after nap," routine.  I wanted to do something "Fall" related, and I thought finger painting a pumpkin should be it!  I mean seriously, I'm 30, and I want to do some pumpkin painting.  Who wouldn't? If you're looking for a quick and EASY Fall, toddler activity, look no more!  All you have to do is throw an old sheet down, put some WASHABLE {Trust me... use washable} Finger Paint on paper plates, and let your little guy or gal go...
