Halloween Contests

Well, as I have said before, I LOVE Halloween! It was a tradition in my hometown for me to decorate the house. All the kids would congregate because I had the most decked out house in the whole town. It was great. I loved seeing their costumes and how much they loved it.

But, since moving to the country, I have to find other ways to get my Halloween fix. This year I have found a couple of contests to put me in that Halloween mood.

First, there is Indie5's coloring contest. You can enter, your kid can enter, you both can enter, and they don't care how many times you enter. Just go here and hear
all about it.

Oh, then there is this pumpkin decorating contest I did last year with my daughter. It's called Pumpking Junkin, and it really is a lot of fun. You can see last year's entries here. My daughter's pumpkins are the ones with the leopard cape and the big blue eyes.

Both of those contests are a lot of fun and are great to do with your children. Now, if you don't have children or you'd like something to do on your own, there is this great crafty contest on Instructables.

Have fun with them! No blog post tomorrow as I will be attending a field trip to Baltimore to see the aquarium.

Good luck with all your contests, and thank you for sharing them. Speaking of Baltimore, do you know if they still have that old World War II submarine at inner harbor? That was one of my favorite things from my Baltimore trip.
