Best corn mazes in Southeast Michigan

Corn mazes are a fall Michigan tradition. What's a corn maze? It's a multi-acre corn field in which corn stalks are mowed in creative pattern. The pattern may be words, designs, or images. Intrepid corn maze visitors pay to traverse the labyrinth without getting lost. That's easier said than done. It took my daughter and me nearly two hours to find our way out of a 6-acre cornfield maze we visited. Some corn mazes feature intriguing puzzles to solve, too.

Free Printable Catholic Saints Paper Dolls, Catholic Coloring Page Activities

As a Catholic homeschool mom, it's inspiring to see that articles about All Saints Day and Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) activities are as popular as Halloween articles. I enjoy hunting up free printable holiday crafts, but my real passion is sharing homeschooling and religious education free printables. I remember my early teaching days and late homeschooling career, sans computer. I must have made thousands of charts, drawings, graphs, games, etc. Alas, I am woefully inept artistically, so the lesson plans that required drawing skills...lacked. But now, with the beauty of the Internet, we have access to free printable lesson plans, coloring pages, cut and paste crafts, games and activities.

Adopt Zombie Babies, Get Cellphone Apps to Prepare for Halloween Apocalypse - Yahoo! Voices -

Fear about a Zombie Apocalypse is rampant.  If  zombies did attack, Halloween would be the ideal launch date.  Don't worry, there are plenty of ways to protect yourself  in case of invasion. There's a zombie escape cellphone app (read on for details on that). The CDC created emergency preparedness alerts to keep us posted. There's a zombie defense kit, too. And most gruesome (but probably most effective) of all, you can adopt a zombie baby (!) from Spirit Halloween. See image in ad below (that's Teether--quite the euphemism, eh?). Be warned. Zombie babies aren't cute and cuddly. Personally, Doll Face scares me silly and she's just toy and I'm an adult woman.

Free Printable Kids Halloween Party Planner

I love party-planning, especially for preschoolers. At this age, they're pretty easy to please and you don't have to spend much to put on a great kid-friendly shindig. I'll never understand why anyone would want to take kids to an birthday restaurant or activity venue. They're are over-priced and you really don't get much bang for all that buck. I've found that kids have the most fun with backyard birthday bashes and holiday parties. Here are some preschool games and activities that are easy and free (or pretty darn cheap). Use these for your kiddie harvest, All Saints Day, Christian-themed or Halloween party, too! Easy, cheap, DIY activities for preschool birthday parties
