Autumnal Pumpkins, a simple DIY
Pumpkins are not just for Halloween! And although they could (and should) be perfectly appropriate for early and late October, they are also perfect now as their own Autumnal display or centrepiece. It is not too late to make these, and I plan on keeping ours on the table until after Thanksgiving. Along with our ...

Halloween luminaries, a sweet last-minute craft and fun for all ages!
Halloween is not a traditional holiday in the Netherlands, but we have adopted the tradition. The children like to dress up, we decorate the house with spooks and spiders and I make some scary dishes for dinner. We do walk around the neighbourhood -- there's a specific street where people really make an effort to ...

This was one of those 'see-as-you-make' projects after school with some friends, and we love the end result of our creepy critter collages! You only need a few materials (but can easily improvise with what you have at home). And it takes about ten minutes to make one, adding a bit of halloween creepiness to ...

It also means we have some fun Halloween crafts up our sleeve for the next few weeks. But I was reminded of our papier-mâché pumpkin we made last year! Actually, we made a whole box of fruit and vegetables, but really,  just making pumpkins would be ...

If you want the very perfect baked version of Autumn, then this moist, colourful (I want to wear that colour!) pumpkin bread is for you. And as much as I love Autumn and all things apple, (apple pie, apple cake, apple turnovers, apple crisp, you get the idea), there is something about pumpkin that is ...

Tricks and Treats -- a collection of Halloween Ideas
Trick or treat? Do you celebrate Halloween? What do you prefer -- silly or spooky? Funny or ghoulish? In a lot of Europe it is considered a very American holiday. And as an American living in London, I am happy to see that it is becoming more popular each year. Dressing up (fancy dress as ...

Halloween
As an American living in London, I don't usually cling defiantly to my roots and flaunt my "American-ness". It's not that I'm ashamed. It's more like I'm trying to fit in among the general (more reserved) British public. But today is an exception. Today is Halloween! The fantastic American (Hallmark) Holiday where every American child ...

What are your thoughts on this archive post... “boredom spawns creativity and self-sufficiency, and that it’s important for children to accept that life isn’t always a ‘parade of amusements’. Sometimes it’s boring, and the sooner children accept that, the better off they’ll be.” More in our bio from @courtneyadamo #babyccinokids #bored
