House and Holidays Plan Week 8: Family Spaces

Organized Christmas -

Posted by Cynthia Ewer on October 19, 2014

Christmas is a time for family, so center the season around a clean and organized family space. This week in the House and Holidays Plan, we take aim on the family room, playroom or family area.

Where does your family go to relax together? That's where we'll spend the week, cleaning and organizing shared spaces.

In holiday prep, the family room theme continues as we decorate for Halloween, review holiday movies and music, and craft a holiday housework plan.

Mailing deadline: mail overseas gifts this week!

Organized Christmas -

Posted by Cynthia Ewer on October 13, 2014

It's simple and sweet, a Halloween treat: Witches' Brew!

Combining apple cider drink mix, Halloween candy treats and a free printable gift tag, Witches Brew is easy to make and give.

Use small black salsa bowls from the Dollar Store to make Witches Brew in a Cauldron, or use creative packet-folding and a licorice rope "broomstick" to make broom-shaped Witches Brew packets.

Add free printable gift tags or bag toppers to make an easy Halloween craft.

Add Witches Brew to Halloween BOO baskets, share with co-workers or make it in multiples for Halloween party favors.
