Halloween is just about here! Are you ready? The kids excited? Well, to help you get ready for all the fun activities I have a fabulous giveaway for you guys from the folks at All You Magazine!
No matter whether you’re gathering toddlers, teens or adults for your annual spookfest, the All You Frightfully Fun Halloween Handbook offers low-cost, big-bang ideas to ensure everyone a hauntingly good time. You will find everything you need for an outrageously fun Halloween, including soup-to-nuts theme parties for all ages.
Features from the book include:
GET YOUR GUARD ON: Transform Pumpkins into Creepy Creatures (p. 4)
Get in the spirit by making pumpkin decorations for the front porch or dining room table from adorable pumpkin families to classic jack-o-lanterns to down-right scary skulls.
HAUNT YOUR HOUSE: Create Spooktacular Outdoor Displays (p. 20)
Send chills up the spine of trick-or-treaters and passerby with spooky decorations for the front door, porch and yard. Ideas include covering the doorbell with a black-caped witch, sitting a life-sized pumpkin man on the porch, and hanging flying ghosts from trees.
DECORATE YOUR DIGS: Give Rooms an Eerie Glow with Crafts (p. 38)
To help set the mood in the house, ALL YOU shares loads of ideas and inspiration to transform rooms. For an eerie glow, create miniature haunted dollhouses, googly-eyed spiders or ghostly window treatments. To celebrate in a more subdued elegant fashion, display framed leaves, faux pumpkins or harvest vases made from winter squash.
GATHER THE GHOULS: Throw a Fang-Tastic Theme Party (p. 62)
Throw a party with suitably festive food and decorations. ALL YOU provides dozens of recipes for appetizers, main dishes, sides and desserts, and suggests setting the table with bat mobiles, ghost lights and other spooky ideas.

Delight Halloween revelers with creepy-crawler cupcakes, spider web cakes and dozens of other spirited desserts. Also included are easy-bake treats to use up all that leftover trick-or-treating candy.
CRAFT A DISGUISE: Make Curiously Captivating Costumes (p. 130)
