Green Halloween

Green Halloween
"You were once a yellow pumpkin 
sitting on a sturdy vine,
Now you are a Jack-o'-lantern,
let your little light shine."

Here at Sarah's Silks we love celebrating festivals! Halloween is a fun one that can be spent doing activities all month that are out in nature and nurturing for young children.

Wonderful ideas for a green, earth-friendly Halloween include pumpkin patch visits, followed by pumpkin carving and baking and eating pumpkin treats. Long walks gathering fall leaves and acorns. Baking bread, making candles, sitting by the fire, and of course, dressing up!

Playsilks are one of the best, most creative tools for making your own costume. We've seen children use them to become ghosts, witches, genies, flying machines, almost anything you can imagine can be created (with a bit of added magic) with a special colored Playsilk. 

Adding Face Paint makes even more characters possible - think tiger stripes on cheeks paired with a tiger Playsilk. 

Trick-or-treat baskets are another great earth-friendly way to stay away from plastics. Baskets are beautiful and will be used over and over in many ways.

My son wants to be a tree frog. I got him green pajamas and red gloves. I also got him a green hat and glued 2 1/2 foam balls on top that I painted into eyes. He uses his small basket for his treats.

  • My older daughter is being green by wearing a second hand costume ( princess amidala from Star wars) and I will be making my younger daughters costume of c3po (from Star wars) out of recycled cardboard. I will be using our yellow play silk for her head piece.

  • We’re actually recycling my sons costume since he wants to be the same thing as last year! We reuse our Halloween bags every year!

  • Our girls are going as Bingo and Bluey! Their current hobby is using their scarves to create “spooky” scenes, which usually means draping them over their night lights to create sunsets and ghost lights. Love watching them come up with different ways to play!

  • My 4 year old wanted to be Princess of the pirates – arrr! So, we wrapped a red scarf around her head, popped a striped shirt on her upper half, and cut out a construction paper eye patch, sword, and crown. Then, she made herself a silk cape tied at the neck and then we wrapped her bottom half in as many bits of fabric as we could turn up (with a fluffy tutu as a under layer) to create a rather striking bustle and train with a sword sheath to boot. Rain boots completed her get-up, because, in her own words : «  the pirate boss has to have dry toesies ». Couldn’t agree more!

  • My toddler is going to be a ninja using play silks to make a ninja head scarf, neck scarf and belt. Along with some loose pants and long sleeve shirt under an oversized shirt. And belts to strap silk swords to his back.

  • My 8 year daughter wants to dress up as a color ful mummy, so we are using All the silks we have to make it as colorful as possible and wrap her in them.

  • My boys love superheroes, so we are using the play silks as superhero capes this year! I would love to get the safari silks so they can option to dress as a tiger and other animals!

  • For purim this year my daughter (4) was a princess, fairy, ballerina, t-rex. We used a crown, fairy wings, a rainbow skirt, and a star wand from Sarah’s silks with a t-rex costume we already had and of course ballet shoes.
