Zombie Repellent and a Recipe for a Healthy Halloween

As a dedicated trick-or-treat bag enthusiast (gratis my two kiddos), I know first-hand how tricky it really is to stay healthy this time of year. Thing is, treats don’t have to be unhealthy to be creepilcious. So, with the help of Pinterest and a few creative spins on some spooktacular ideas, I’ve come up with a list of top edible haunts for this Halloween.

Trick your little creatures with these five Treats


5. Creepy Crudité

Fresh veggies and a nutritious dip and voila!


4. Swamp Smoothie

This swampy concoction can be created with your favorite fresh fruits. Simple tip: prepare baggies of fruit ahead of time and store in the freezer for a quick, blendable after school snack.


3. Witch’s Broom Treat Bags

Transform this sugary treat bag into a savory snack by adding your child’s favorite snack mix. Pretzels, nuts, Goldfish, dried fruit…and, of course, a little candy corn – because it *is* a festive veggie of sorts.


2. Orange-o-Lanterns

I’m just going to admit that my culinary patients might run short on this one, BUT for the crafty mama foodies out there, this is a masterpiece waiting to happen. Stuff your Orange-o-Lantern with a fruit medley and let your little goblins attack.


1. Watermelon Brain

Zombies beware: seedless watermelon posing as a delicacy is deadly zombie repellent. Most commonly found in the burbs.


…and after all the damage is done (and because I do realize that while I’ve complied a perfectly healthy and delicious top five, there will still be abundant amounts of chocolate, caramel and nought to be had – yes, that is a personal confession).

Creepy Finale ~ Firefly Toothbrushes

Perfect for Halloween, changing colors are cast onto the child’s face as they brush…making brushing fun, and spooky enough to scare any lurking sugar!

Titans of the Ice Age

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mammoths, Mastodons, saber-toothed cats and two kids, oh my! Those two crazy kiddos had a blast at the newest Denver Museum of Nature and Science exhibit – particularly exploring the giant, ancient poo display (which makes me think we have a whole new blog theme going on here).

This story of the  Snowmastodon Project is particularly interesting in that the Ice Age fossil site was unearthed near Snowmass Village, Colorado in 2010. Artifacts from the site can be viewed at DMNS along with demonstrations on how archeologists work on such a project.

After checking out the ‘Titans of the Ice Age,’ we made our way to the lab for further discovery. I was impressed with the many new features at the museum since our last visit! So, if it’s been a while or you simply have yet to get out to this vast museum full of discovery…it’s time to get out there…and into the Ice Age!

  • GRADE: All Ages
  • DATE/TIME: February 15 – May 27, 2013 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The Museum is open seven days a week year-round.
  • COST $5/student (includes Museum admission), 1 free adult/10 students, $5/additional adult Scholarships may be available for eligible schools
  • Reservations and timed entry required. For reservation details and to fill out the Field Trip Request Form, click here or call 303.370.6000, M – F, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

IKEA Children’s Play Tent Recall

With the summer 2011 premier of the new IKEA in Denver, I would guess that several of our children are playing in these potentially dangerous tents. Only three incidents have been reported at this time and only one injury, but with sharp wire ends posing a hazard as they break through the tent fabric, parents should be aware of this recall.

From the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

Name of Product: BUSA children’s folding tent

Units: About 58,000; 51,000 in the United States and 7,000 in Canada

Importer: IKEA North America Service, of Conshohocken, Pa.

Hazard: The steel wire frame of the tent can break, producing sharp
wire ends that can protrude through the tent fabric, posing a laceration or
puncture hazard.

Incidents/Injuries: Three incidents were reported, including one
injury. No incidents were reported in the US or Canada

Model number 90192009 is printed on a label attached to the interior seam of the tent. They were produced in Vietnam and sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide in August – September 2011 for approximately $8.

The CPSC recommends consumers return the product to the nearest IKEA immediately to receive a full refund. Questions: IKEA at (888) 966-4532 or www.ikea-usa.com.

Further details from CPSC.
