Centron Corp. was good enough to prepare this helpful safety video for pre-helicopter parenting days. Oh, for the days when you'd send your kids out for a night of trick-or-treating at strangers' houses with nary an adult in sight, all the time wearing sight-restricting masks and dark clothes.

Sweet-toothed cannibals rejoice! Yolanda Gampp's Halloween bloody buttercream and vanilla leg cake looks absolutely delicious.
Stephanie Pokorny freehand crocheted this out-of-this-world E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial costume for her son Jack, age 2! The project took her four days.
"He is free handed and made with no pattern," she said. "I literally just tried it on him as I created and stopped when it fit right!"

The photograph rather explains itself, in terms of craftsmanship, but Christine Friar's guide to making this delightful Halloween piece is worth reading all the way through
Spooping season is here, and if you’re like me you’re excited enough to make one small decoration. You’re not here to win any awards, but it’d be nice if your hands could manufacture a seasonal totem that you could catch out of the corner of your eye while moving through your home and say, “That’s the stuff.” Googly eyes are a really great supply for this level of commitment to the arts.Read the rest
Ferrofluid is so awesome.
Halloween is here and it was time for some new face paint. These crayons are very easy to use.
A bit less exact than a brush, these crayons are a fast and simple way to put paint on whomever is your canvas. The 12 colors are bright, and vibrant; showing well against the various skin colors in our household. Soap and warm water washes it right off.
I suggest wearing latex gloves as you apply it, the paint doesn't dry and gets a bit slippery on my fingers.
Great for use on your budding juggalo!
