Halloween Crafts

This month's issue of Kiwi magazine features green Halloween crafts from our very own Lynn Colwell and Corey Colwell-Lipson, the mother-daughter co-founders of Green Halloween!
In addition, the crafts double as party activities, and some become decor. That's the all-in-one "spirit" we love! (Combining party elements can save time, money and resources.)
Look for how to make a Halloween garland, a memory pail and upcycled spiders on pages 65-67.
You can also visit Kiwi magazine online and check out Lynn and Corey's featured "bonus crafts" for FREE!

Also, visit Green Halloween's blog for Halloween craft round ups featuring some of our favorite eco bloggers and artists.

The UNICEF program is still going strong, but this year you may also want to consider trick-or-treating for books, Reverse-Trick-or-Treating or even taking part in the Halloween Candy Buy-Back Program.

About Green Halloween

Green Halloween® is a non-profit, community initiative to create healthier and more sustainable holidays, starting with Halloween. Green Halloween began in the Seattle area in 2007, and in 2008 went nationwide, thanks to wide-spread media exposure, word-of-mouth marketing and online buzz, as well as the support and enthusiasm of schools, families and businesses all over the country.

Funded by sponsorship and fueled by volunteers, Green Halloween is a national program of EcoMom® Alliance, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, in partnership with The Green Year®, LLC.
