Proof Positivity: A fun and safe Halloween

One of the best things about carving a pumpkin is baking pumpkin seeds. Last year I had my first experience with this.

You will need:
Your pumpkin
colander
cooking spray
salt

1. Preheat your oven to 350.
2. cut out the top of your pumpkin and scoop all of your seeds out into you colander. Rinse all of the pulp out.
3. get a cookie sheet spray the cooking spray on it.
4. place the seeds on the tray and salt them.
5. Leave them in the oven for 10 minutes turn them over and bake them for another 10 minutes.
6. leave them to cool and then store them in a Ziploc.

Have a safe Halloween

1. If you won’t be Trick or Treating with your child know your child’s route and make sure that he/ she will be going in a group with another parent you can trust.
2. Teach your child not to vandalize. Vandalism is not a trick or treat. Teach your child to clean up any vandalism they may cause.
3. Every Halloween people harm black cats. Make sure your child knows this is wrong and the law protects the animals.
4. Make sure you child wears reflective tape and carries flashlights.
5. Make sure your child knows to look both ways before crossing and not to get into vehicles with strangers.
6. Throw out things like apples and oranges. It’s better safe than sorry. Always inspect your kids bags.

For a spooktacular charitable time

You can help the Help Houston Aeros Charities sell pucks.
In my area Habitat for Humanity will hold a haunted house.
Create your own charitable event for your favorite cause. How about a party where you keep a donation bowl and all proceeds go to your favorite cause. Ask a company to sponsor your event. They may give you things to auction for a little free advertising.
