Creepy Crudité Results

On October 31st our sites were brimming with happy, excited children dressed in their Halloween costumes and enjoying a day of special activities. Nationally, Kids & Company hosted a “Creepy Crudité Competition” for our Staff to put together a fun creature using fruits and vegetables for the children’s afternoon snack. We had an overwhelming response and posted the amazing creatures on Facebook selecting a winner from the number of “likes” they received. I wanted to congratulate all the imaginative entries because the children LOVED their yummy healthy afternoon snacks.

Halloween Fun from Victoria!

When my children were younger, Halloween was one of their most anticipated holidays. From carving pumpkins, to making costumes and painting faces, we always had a fantastic time. Come Halloween night, I would usually volunteer to stay home with the youngest and hand out candy to the adorable trick-or-treaters, and my husband would take my brood around the neighbourhood to fill their pillowcases with treats. As much as my kids loved candy, I did my best to ensure that they did not overload on sugar. After they returned with their loot, we would sort through the piles to make sure everything was safe to eat. I would usually allow my kids to indulge on that first night, and their consumption was much more controlled in the days to follow.
