DIY under $10: creepy candy bowl


I am always looking for ways to add some fun to life, and with this week’s do-it-yourself project you can add personality and even a little creepiness to this year’s trick-or-treating.

For just $3, this great candy bowl will have all of the children rushing over to your house not just for the candy, but for the creepy, crawly bowl, too.

Supplies

Items I purchased:

• Large plastic orange bowl — $1 at Dollar Tree

• 2 packs of plastic spider rings — $1 at Dollar Tree

Items I already had:

• Glue gun

• Glue sticks

• Scissors

Directions

1. Remove the spider rings from their package and cut off the ring portion of each. You will only need the spider portion, so you can throw the rings away.

2. Add a dollop of hot glue to the backside of each spider’s body and glue them sporadically onto your bowl.

3. Once all of your spiders are secure, fill your bowl with your favorite Halloween candy and let the trick or treating begin.

The Kid Whisperer: What to do about the child who cries, cries, cries

Dear Kid Whisperer, I’m curious about crying tantrums. We have a strong-willed 6-year old girl who cries about everything lately. She cries over us not buying a toy or what she eats for breakfast. I offer her a hug, tell her I am sad that she is sad and tell her that it’s too loud and we can’t hear each other. I am gentle and loving...
