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.

  • Last year we wore long vintage velvet black capes and road long tree branches that had fallen in a storm all the way down the streets howling at passers by, my daughter was beyond delighted, I have a feeling there will be requests for a replay this year!
