E COULD CALL October trick

or treat month, but I prefer to focus just on the “treat” part.

Here are some mini-gift ideas for everyone in the family, minus Dad. He gets the best treat of all: the leftover candy.

for Mom

for the puppies

Keep the calories off by enjoying just the look of candy corn – along with the scent. Just don’t buy any of the real stuff, and you’ll start the holiday season guilt-free. $9.99 at Harris Teeter, throughout Hampton Roads.

Some dogs love this creepy and crazy holiday, and others, not so much. Remember your four-legged friend either way with a small treat. The shape is familiar to your pet and fits in with all those skeletonshanging around this time of year. $1.99 at Pet Smart, throughout Hampton Roads.

1. Fearful or friendly

3. Development by DVD

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find a little bit of both at Busch Gardensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; HowlO-Scream; choose which suits your child (age might not be the determining factor!). Special â&#x20AC;&#x153;scary zones, terrifying shows and gruesome creaturesâ&#x20AC;? make Halloween complete â&#x20AC;&#x201C; along with nearly all of what Busch Gardens usually has to offer. Fall passes start at $69.99, but you can ask a friend with a season pass to get you an online discount. As of midSeptember, pass holders received a $15 discount for friends. Friday-Sunday, until Oct. 28. www.buschgardens. com.

According to About.com, tweens and teens can fulfill their need for living on the edge in a safe way with a scary movie (or by riding on a scary ride or hopping on a haunted hayride), and they can also build their selfesteem, feeling like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve faced their fears and accomplished something. Read more at http:// tweenparenting.about.com/od/ physicalemotionalgrowth/a/ Why-Children-Like-Being-Scared. htm?nl=1. And check out http:// tweenparenting.about.com/od/ familyhome/a/HalloweenMovies. htm for scary movie suggestions for tweens, including Coraline, Harry Potter and the Sorcererâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stone and Escape to Witch Mountain.

2. Pretty in pink We know, you think of orange not pink when it comes to Halloween. But over at Woods Orchards Farm in Hampton, they make Halloween extra sweet with pink pumpkins to raise awareness about breast cancer. They also have white pumpkins and, of course, orange ones available for sale by the pound, and they offer hay rides on Saturday and Sunday for $1. www.woodsorchards.com

4. All aboard Get your ticket to fun for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ghost Train at Northwest River Park in Chesapeake, as long as your definition of fun includes a bit of fright, but we promise itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be completely family-friendly. Wear your costume and enjoy a half-hour ride Oct. 18-20 and Oct. 25-27. 421-7151.

5. Cool crafts Perfect for the younger kiddos in Chesapeake is Whiteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nursery Fall Festival Oct. 13th and 14 th. Roam through the pumpkin patch and the cornstalks and hop on the wagon for a hayride. Best of all, create a remembrance of this autumn at one of the craft tables. www. whitesnursery.com.

6. Friday night frights â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and more Hunt Club Farm is back with what the kids I know say is a truly scary adventure. Brave the haunted hayride, the Village of the Dead and the Field of Screams, if you dare, for $25 on a Friday or Saturday, and for $23 on a Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday. The Virginian-Pilot often publishes discounts. www.huntclubfarms.com

7. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pepperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;laternâ&#x20AC;? with â&#x20AC;&#x153;wormsâ&#x20AC;? Toss cooked spaghetti in sauce and place it in peppers carved to look like scary jack oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;laterns. Let thestrands come out of the top and the eyes for the full creepy effect. http://www.meganscookin.com/ halloween-stuffed-peppers

More Halloween happiness... 8. Spider lollipops

16. Fall at the mall

Grab a bag of Dum Dum lollipops, cut up some black garbage bags into four-inch by one-inch strips and wrap the strips around the top of the lollipops, securing each with three black pipe cleaners wrapped around and bent to look like spider legs. Go ahead and use four if you must to get the real number of legs – but you might find yourself fighting for space. http://www. apartmenttherapy.com/spookycreepy-lollies-129899.

Maybe you’re used to prices scaring you at the mall, but that won’t be the case at Chesapeake Square Mall. Instead, Spooky Acres Haunted House will do the job. Tickets are an affordable $10 each, available for a house “visit”Oct. 5 and 6, Oct. 12 and 13th, Oct. 19 and 20, Oct. 26 – Oct. 31 from 6:30 p.m. 10 p.m. Cash Only. www.facebook.com/ ChesapeakeSquare.

9. The “Eyes” have it There are a million wreath ideas out there for every holiday. One of my favorite is an eyeball wreath. Buy a wreath form, wrap in black fabric, pin or glue on black leaves, and finish off with eyeballs – either store bought ones or ones you make out of ping pong balls and red and blue markers (for the irises and bloodshot lines, off course. http://blog.booturtle. com/2010/10/halloween-eyeballwreath.html

10. Candy corn bottles Choose several differentshaped bottles and clean and remove any stickers. Spray paint each white and allow to dry. Continue by spraying the centers orange and the bottoms yellow, allowing each to dry in between applications. An extra coat of each gives it a richer look. Display together for a yummy collection. http:// swelldesigner. blogspot. com/2011/09/ candy-corn-bottlevases.html

11. Hand it to you kids

14. Bat straws

Remember the exact size of your children’s hands this Halloween by making a handprint bat. Trace both hands on black construction paper, cut out and glue together with the palms overlapping and the thumbs facing up. Glue on small googly eyes where the thumbs meet. http:// pebblesinmypocket.blogspot. com/2010/10/day-8-handprint-bats. html

Cut five-inch pieces of black ribbon, knot around a straw (loosely!), glue on small eyes in the center and write each guest’s name on one “wing” with a silver marker. Then sip away.

Make yummy, low-fat cupcakes and decorate them like mummies by simply crisscrossing vanilla frosting across the top and adding two matching M&M close together for eyes. http://www.skinnytaste. com/2011/10/low-fat-chocolate-mummycupcakes.html#more.

12. Skeleton bones Make edible mini bones with your children – all you need is stick pretzels, mini marshmallows and white chocolate. Place a marshmallow on each end of the pretzel and dip in melted chocolate. Allow to cool and enjoy! http://familyfun.go.com/ recipes/funny-bones-1024764/

13. Say “I do” to ghosts Turn tissue paper wedding bells (available at most party stores) into ghosts by simply adding black eyes. Want to get real fancy? Add a layer of tulle over that. Take a look at http://www.countryliving. com/crafts/projects/do-it-yourself-halloween-decorations-1010#slide-1.

17. Mummy in the tummy

18. Boo to you

15. Pin the pumpkin Every parent knows that kids like to throw stuff – and there’s nothing wrong with that as long as you’re OK with what gets broken. Let that be the case with a set of darts and orange balloons, each filled with confetti and candy, all arranged to look like a gigantic, nearly 4-foot by 5-foot pumpkin. Details at http:// www.marthastewart. com/269871/halloween-games-popgoes-the-pumpkin

Start your day with ghosty pancakes, easy to do with upside down chocolate chips for eyes and a mouth. http://www. gourmetmomonthego.com/2008/10/ghostlypancakes.html.

19. Pumpkin spider Lay three pumpkins on their sides in a long line, insert four long sticks into both sides of the center pumpkin, and use construction paper for the eyes.

20. Pay up Tempted to eat all of your kids’ candy? Follow one of my friend’s lead and pay your kids $5 to hide the candy from you. It will work, she promises me.

Kohl’s Cares

A FREE lecture series on children’s health and wellness

Taming the Spirited Child Do you work with parents of children who present a special challenge? Maybe you have a child of your own who resists your every request? Who turns everything into a big, loud drama? Some kids seem to be born more curious, adventurous, persistent and sensitive, presenting a challenge for parent and professional alike. Dr. Michael Popkin will present strategies for parenting challenging children without breaking their spirits. Learn to recognize the characteristics of a spirited child, how taming is as much about building a relationship as setting limits, how to handle anger and nonviolent discipline for spirited kids.

What you need to do: Kids can measure out the chocolate chips and miniature marshmallows and place them in separate small bowls. Kids can place graham crackers in a zip top bag and crush them. Adults should place a small amount of butter in a sautĂŠ pan over medium-high heat. When it begins to bubble, adults should place one tortilla in the pan and sprinkle on half of the chocolate chips, half of the marshmallows and half of the graham cracker crumbs.

Adults should place another tortilla on top and press down with a spatula evenly around the perimeter. Adults should check to see if tortilla is browning on the bottom. When it is, they should flip the tortilla and continue to grill, slightly pressing down with the spatula until the other side browns. The quesadilla should be removed and cut into wedges. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. .

Yields 8 wedges.

Next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s question My husband and I differ on whether or not to offer an allowance. He said chores are a part of being a member of the family. I think offering an allowance helps children learn how to handle money. How can we resolve this? If you have a parenting question of your own, or if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to answer a question already asked, send your questions or responses to Jennifer Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell, editor, at jenny.odonnell@ pilotonline.com.
