If you want to put your creative juices into going green this Halloween then you might want to try some fun activities with the kids.

A Green Monster Mask

This How-To for a Green Monster Mask is one way to keep the kids occupied while using bits and scraps of leftover material from old presents, kitchen things and various other stuff that you invariably do not want to throw away in principle but that you never know what to do with! Recycling karma coming your way.

My kids worked on this activity with much success but then someone in our household (no names mentioned) had the bright idea of making it into a jack-o-lantern rather than a costume piece. While that is not a bad idea, the way do do it would be to place a flashlight inside the jack-o-lantern rather than the candle that my household member used instead.

A better photo than this would have been one of me putting out a fire in my garden that resulted from our newly constructed green monster going up in flames thanks to the aforementioned bright idea.
