12 Days Until Halloween: Creative Parent and Child Combo Halloween Costume Ideas

12 days until Halloween countdown!

When I was a child my mom came up with such a cute concept for a combined halloween costume.

She dressed up as a witch and I was her little spider. She made a little web attached to her dress so she could keep me close while trick or treating. Not only was this idea adorable but it served as a smart way to keep us together while we went from door to door.  Years later I saw pictures and I thought I’d share a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

Big and Little Pumpkin – Pumpkin vines to keep us close

Parents can dress up in a pumpkin costume, whether they make it themselves or buy from a halloween store. They can also just wear an orange shirt or a nice sweater. Pumpkin costumes can be a little unflattering for adults. However, for kids, pumpkin costumes are absolutely adorable!

They can dress their little one up in a mini pumpkin costume. Go to your local craft store and pick up a long and thick piece of green fabric and some faux green foliage or artificial vines.

Artificial vines and foliage usually have pliable stems, you can bend and wrap the stems around the green fabric and secure it using a hot glue gun or fabric glue. Then attach one end of the fabric to your costume or to your wrist and the other to your child’s to prevent your little squash from straying to far away from the patch!

Dinosaur Park Ranger / Dinosaur Tamer and Baby Dinosaurs – Who needs a string when they know who is in charge and who is protecting them?

If you have children whom may be too old to have their costumes attached to yours but you still want a fun combination costume and most importantly to be sure they stay safe during the night, the dinosaur tamer and baby dinos is an ultra cute halloween costume idea.

Parents can purchase or make their own safari park ranger costume. A beige shirt and shorts with a brown belt, safari hat and thick white socks with brown work boots will do the trick. Cut a name tag into a shield shape and place it on one of your shirt sleeves with the words “Dino Tamer” or “Dino Park Ranger” written on it.

Then grab your child a dinosaur costume, the dinosaur of their choosing of course! If you have a particularly rambunctious lizard, don’t be afraid to step into your dino tamer role for the night and remind them who wears the beige shorts in the family!

These are just a few ideas of creative family combination halloween costumes that incorporate fun and safety – a winning pair for both parent and child on halloween night!

14 Days Until Halloween: Booze Apple Bobbing for Adults

14 Days Until Halloween!

Booze Apple Bobbing is a classic game with a fun adult twist to the mix! If you are throwing a halloween party this one is fun to make and there is a good chance more guests will want to participate in the festivities.

The classic game consists of a large bucket filled with water with about a dozen apples, sometimes more, sometimes less, floating around. The idea is each person takes a turn only using their mouths to grab as many apples with their teeth and pull it from the bucket. They are usually given a set amount of time and whoever gets the most apples wins a prize.

Booze Apple Cider bobbing follows the same set of rules only with one variation – the apples were soaking in a hard alcohol for a week or so ahead of time. The concept is similar to rum and vodka soaked gummy bears.

Grab a 1 – 2 dozen whole apples. Combine apple cider, apple juice, white or brown sugar and cinnamon sticks in a large pot and bring to a boil. Allow to cool. Add a 190 proof moonshine or grain alcohol to the mix.

Then add your apples and tightly seal. If you don’t want to get too fancy with it, you can grab a caramel vodka and combine your apples with that.

A week or more is ideal. You can use a giant mason jar or even a large cooler to keep your concoction until ready for use.

Use the apple moonshine the apples were soaking in as a beverage to serve at the party.

The bonus of this version – you probably won’t need any prizes since the apples spread enough cheer to go around!

16 Days until Halloween: Decapitated Barbie Body Part Jello

I will be doing 3 blogs a week leading up to the king of spooky holidays – Halloween! Each blog will incorporate some spooky recipe, fun party idea or halloween centered theme! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays from the costumes and candy to the haunted houses and spooky hayrides –  it is fun, festive and gives everyone a chance to show another side!

Today is Day 16~ Let the countdown begin!

If you are thinking of throwing a halloween bash this year or if you want to bring a fun and creepy dish to someone else’s halloween party, here is one of my all-time favorite halloween party treat ideas that is sure to thrill your guests!

Decapitated Barbie (and Ken) Body Part Jello – Barbies can be a little creepy in general, proportionally speaking that is, especially those new Brat Dollz i’ve seen over the last couple of years – this unique dish will definitely have guests rethinking one of their favorite childhood toys.

The easiest barbies to use are the ones from the dollar store that have hollow body parts. The rubber dolls can be expensive and are difficult to slice up.

Grab a few of those depending on the amount of guests you’ll be serving. I like to use both male and female dolls to keep things neutral!

Slice up your barbies into parts, don’t make the parts too small because you want your guests to be able to see them when eating so they don’t accidentally eat the part! I would not recommend serving this dish to children under the age of 12 or without adult supervision. Be sure to let guests know the body parts are not edible. 

I like to chop the hair up on the dolls heads, this gives it a scarier look and this is also to avoid any long stray hairs floating around in your jello mold.

Next you’ll want to make your jello. Follow the instructions on the package.

You’ll want the jello liquid to solidify a little bit before sticking the body parts in it otherwise the body parts will just float together.

Place the jello in the fridge for a little while – checking periodically to see its consistency. The consistency should be firm enough to keep your creepy parts from floating around aimlessly but soft enough to be able to place them in it.

Another trick is to make individual cups of jello and place one or two body parts in each. This prevents the body parts from floating around and mixing altogether.

Plant your body parts throughout the mold, you can make it look like a bloody massacre especially if you use red jello, meaning the jello mold can look all mashed up or you can choose to gently press down, using a wooden chopstick to push them deep down into the mold.

Decapitated Barbie Body Part Jello – a particularly frightening party treat for your halloween spectacular!

 

Best Natural Homemade Facial Mask for Breakouts and Acne-Prone Skin

Master Skin Mask Ingredients

Since about my early twenties I’ve had worse breakouts and acne prone skin then while in my teen years. I’ve been to dermatologists, doctors, have taken medication and nothing has worked quite like this natural mask I’ve created using an assortment of home remedies! 

This mask helps exfoliate, moisturize and tightens pores while unclogging them. 

I call it the Master Skin Mask and it’s a combo of treatments in one. 

 

 

Here’s what you’ll need: 

  • 1 tbsp cacao powder 
  • 1 tbsp unfiltered natural coconut oil 
  • 3 tbsps warm water 
  • 1 fresh lemon 
  • 1/3 cup natural organic oats 
  • 1 small bowl or petrie dish
  • 1 small wooden or skewer

Yours truly with the mixed Master Skin Mask on

Add oats, oil and warm water in dish. Mix together with wooden skewer or small wooden spoon or just use your finger.

Add the cacao powder and mix. Squeeze 1/4 lemon juice and mix. You should get a nice gooey brown paste with chunks of oats. Spread evenly on face and neck. Allow to dry for 10 – 20 minutes. Until the mask is dry on your face. Then gently remove with warm water and warm wash cloth. Make the water cool or cold and rinse your face with it. This will ensure your pores are tightly sealed! 

As you can see, I look ravishing! OK.

Yes, you might look a little silly with the mask on, just deal with it for 20 minutes!

Easy Candle Making Using Essential Oils for Aromatherapy

Before electricity and oil burning, candles were the best way to light the home. In the middle ages, only the wealthy class and institutions such as churches and temples had access to beeswax candles. Today it is easier to acquire beeswax and it is proven to be one of the best waxes to use for candle making as it is one of the slowest burning and it purifies the air. Beeswax is also the best wax to use when adding essential oils for aromatherapy for candle-making.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • Preferred essential oil (s) – see below for list
  • 1 lb pure filtered beeswax
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 3 half-pint canning jars
  • 60 ply cotton braided wick #4 cut into 6 inch pieces
  • An empty coffee can or metal pitcher
  • double boiler or a pot large enough to fit your pitcher to use as a double boiler
  • bamboo skewers

The only setback to beeswax is the wax can become very sticky wax when using molds. It is still totally worth it.

Disclaimer: Beeswax is flammable, keep a close eye on it when it is heating. Don’t forget about it while its cooking or it might get too hot and spill all over your stove!

First, place your beeswax in your metal pitcher or coffee can. Place the pitcher in the pot or double boiler and fill it with enough water to surround the pitcher without spilling into the pitcher. Turn the stove to a medium-high heat. As the water heats, it will boil so make sure you don’t feel it too high for when it starts bubbling.

As the wax melts, prepare your wicks and cut them into 4 pieces about 6 inches long. You may even be able to purchase them at this size already.

Once the water is brought to a boil, turn the heat down to a gentle simmering boil until all the wax has melted.

Remove the pitcher from the heat once the wax is melted. Add your coconut oil to the mixture. Take your bamboo skewer and stir the wax-oil combo gently.

Add drops of your preferred essential oil to the mixture (depending on the size of the batch). I use about 10 – 15 drops for 5 jars.  Do research on the best scents for candles and aromatherapy. Below is a list to help you! Gently use your skewer to mix the wax, coconut oil and essential oil blend together.

Pour about a quarter size amount into the bottom of each jar. Place the pitcher back in the hot water so the wax stays melted.

Place one wick in the center of each jar. Use the skewer to push down the wick and make sure it is placed properly. Allow the wax to cool for about 5 to 10 minutes until it is solid enough to place the wicks inside.

Using your bamboo skewer, wrap the top end of the wick around it and make it taut with the skewer resting atop the jar. You can even use tape to keep the skewer in place.

 

Hold your skewer and pour more wax into each jar. Leave about an inch on the top of the jar.

Make sure your wick stays centered! Let your wax cool completely in each jar. This could take several hours.

Once completely solid, you can trim your wick with scissors. Only trim about a 1.2 inches.

These make amazing, slow-burning and useful gifts for family, friends or loved ones. Nothing is better than giving a gift made by your own hands and with the essential oils you can add a touch of your own flavor to every batch!
