Help them not to freeze to death.. I feel so sorry for stray animals.. some human threw them out there.. it's not their fault that they are abandoned. Have a heart and lend a hand.

For my little ones
Silly Jack o' Lanterns. Don't tell kids what you are making at first, just have them cut out shapes as you go until you get to orange. They look super silly with huge grins or mouths, and out of proportion features that way!
Things to Create
Homemade baby food--freeze in ice cube trays, pop about 6 of same kind in a freezer bag and label with date & contents. Take out what you need and thaw.
Packaging & Wrapping
I hate when parents only yell at their kids for what they do wrong. I discourage yelling in our home. Kids listen better to talking it out. Praising them for what they do well is just as important. I can't image how some kids home lives can be. I'm so glad we get to be my boys parent's. They won't grow up in a home filled with arguing.
If you know a car lover with a birthday coming up, some kind of motoring accessory makes the obvious gift idea. With so many things available, though, it can be hard to know quite what to give them.
