Halloween Crafts, Recipes, Decor, Fun Facts And More :)

  • Halloween Eyeball Cookie Pops
  • FUN FACT ABOUT COOKIES.....Chocolate chip cookies were invented in the 1930s by Ruth Wakefield, who ran the Toll House Inn with her husband. Apparently, Wakefield invented the cookies while trying to improve on a butterscotch nut cookie recipe with an all-chocolate dough. The chocolate she used didn't fully melt in the dough, though, resulting in a cookie with chocolate bits. Some people are dubious of the story, however, saying that Ruth Wakefield was too much of a perfectionist to overlook such an important detail.

  • Turn A Plastic Snow Globe Into Halloween Night Lights
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT SNOW GLOBES.....A snow globe is a decorative novelty item consisting of a scene inside a transparent globular or ellipsoid-like shape.  ‘Snow globes’ are also known as ‘snow domes’, ‘snow shakers’, ‘snowstorms’, ‘snow scenes’, and ‘water globes’. Snow globes generally consist of tiny white flakes in a liquid, which is mainly water, which when shaken up, simulates snow falling. It is thought that snow globes originated in France in Europe, with the first known record being a globe of water and white powder, with a man holding an umbrella, which was on display at the Paris Universal Expo in 1878. To prevent the liquid inside a snow globe from freezing during cold temperatures, an antifreeze such as glycol, is often added to the water, while glycerine or another ingredient is sometimes added to slow the movement of the flakes in the liquid.

  • DIY Bubble Gum Canisters
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT BUBBLE GUM..... Bubble gum was invented in 1928 by a man named Walter Diemer. He worked at a chewing gum factory (as an accountant!) and was experimenting with all kinds of gum recipes. One day, Walter came up with a formula that wasn’t as sticky as regular gum. It was also super stretchy. This meant you could blow bubbles with it. Unfortunately for Walter, he lost the recipe and had to start experimenting all over again. But after four long months, he figured out the recipe once more. And bubble gum was here to stay!

  • Toy Robots Made From Recycled Bottles
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT ROBOTS.....A robot is an artificial agent, meaning it acts as a substitute for a person, doing things it is designed for. Robots are usually machines controlled by a computer program or electronic circuitry. They may be directly controlled by humans. They may be designed to look like humans, in which case their behaviour may suggest intelligence or thought. Most robots do a specific job, and they do not look like humans. They can come in many forms. In fiction, however, robots usually look like people, and seem to have a life of their own. There are many books, movies, and video games with robots in them. Isaac Asimov's I, Robot is perhaps the most famous.

  • Make A Beach Or Small Storage Bag From A Large Water Bottle
  • FUN FACTS ABOUT PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES.....A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute - which breaks down to 20,000 plastic bottles a second - and that number will jump another 20% by 2021. At current consumption rates, we will be going through half a trillion plastic bottles a year by 2012. This number will far outpace recycling efforts, putting oceans, coastlines and other environments in jeopardy. We need to put our foot down now.  In Ontario alone, one billion plastic water bottles are sent to landfill every year. While Nestle estimates that 70-75% of plastic water bottles are recycled in Ontario every year, the Polaris Institute - a non-profit organization that “challenges the influence of corporations on government and public policy” - estimates only 14 percent make it to recycling facilities in the province.
