Saturday Fun

I love to find fun things to do with my children, especially when they are free or a good bargain. I have found a wonderful thing to do with your children 3 times a month for FREE. The first Saturday of every month Home Depot holds a kids workshop from 9am-noon and twice a month on Saturdays, Lowe's also does a build & grow workshop from 10am-11am (next one is Nov. 8th). This week my son made a skeleton at Lowe's. This week you were supposed to make a pumpkin, but they ran out. I found out we should really sign him up for the Lowe's ones. At each one of these workshops they get the kit to make, an apron, and a certificate of completion. At home depot they give them a pin with a picture of what they made and at Lowe's they give them a patch. All of this is FREE. To find out more click on the links above.
We also carved our PUNKINS today.

Tada

I also want to share a fabulous recipe for Apple Dip. This is sooooo yummy and easy to make.

1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)

1/4 cup sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese

1 bag of Heath Bar chips

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate. Serve with Apple Slices.

Hope you are having a fabulous fall weekend!
