of Halloween past
tip I would like to share: One year when my boys were little, I
made a dress up box for them as a Christmas gift. After Halloween,
when everything went on sale, I bought lots of goodies for their
box. I got clown wigs and suspenders, eye patches, hats of all kinds,
bow ties, capes, badges, funny noise makers, etc... I put all of
this into a big plastic tub and it was one of their gifts from Santa.
I cannot tell you how much fun they had through the years with this
inexpensive gift!! Even when big kids came to visit with their parents,
the first thing they headed for was the dress up box. They put on
plays, made up stories and had a great time playing "make believe."
It was one of the best gifts I ever gave and they still talk about
how much fun they had with it!!
