Last week, the NY Frugal Family Examiner spilled the pumpkin seeds on two free Halloween weekend activities, as well as a guide to Do It Yourself costumes so easy a child could make them - because a child did. (Click here for the scoop you missed.)
This week, we've got more freebies, including:
* 15 free pumpkin patterns with difficulty levels ranging from Beginner to Oh My God! Click here to print out guidelines you can use to carve an S for Superman, your own personal (though markedly smaller) bat signal, a pumpkin Pi (get it?), Ironman, Darth Vader, and even Miley Cyrus at her most twerkable.
* StoryBots, a free app designed for both the iPhone and iPad that allows users to cast their entire family in an animated Halloween-themed Starring You Video. The newly monstrous can upload up to five photos and watch themselves dance with the StoryBots as a vampire, ghost, werewolf, mummy, and even Frankenstein’s monster. Get yours, here.
* And lest you think Halloween is only for humans (and monsters), SEE PAWS begs to differ. This Saturday, October 26 at 2 PM, they are hosting South Street Seaport's first ever Halloween Costume Contest for dogs. Open to the public, it will include judging and prizes given to the winners of different categories. Participants can enter by uploading photos of their furry companion to Twitter or Instagram and include the Seaport’s Twitter handle using @TheSeaport or Instagram handle using @southstreetseaport with the hashtag #SEEPAWS. Participants can also enter by submitting an email of their furry friend to SEEPAWS@dkcnews.com. More at: http://seechangeny.com/
And if you loved (or merely got) the Pumpkin Pi joke, then check out this FREE recipe for Guilt Free Apple Pie courtesy of "SKINNY SPICES: 50 Nifty Homemade Spice Blends That Can Turn Blah Healthy Eating Into Flavor-Rich Delicious Dining" by Erica Levy Klein, the completely searchable cookbook, as well as a FREE sample of "The Worldwide Dessert Contest: Enhanced Multimedia Edition" by Dan Elish, a book which also features an original soundtrack... of roller-skating apple pies - and more!
