here's another fun halloween tip: serve pumkin or squash soup INSIDE a miniature pumpkin that you've hollowed out.

I must say this advice on 9 Green Tips is fabulous.

Recycled costumes are great - We are having our first ever Halloween Party (Aussies) and I made my baby a Mummy costume out of his Dads old workshirt - cut off the sleeves, turned them into pants and added strips of the torn up shirt to the pants to look like bandaging.
The rest of our costumes were sourced from the Op Shop. I painted the detail onto my 4 year old's Ben 10 costume - easy and cost $2, is recycled and also reused.
