The Super Bowl ads seemed to stir up almost more controversy than the game itself. Yesterday I wrote about the commercials I thought were clear winners and losers. Here are my other top picks which just happened to fall into two general categories: drinking and hating your job.

Researching the witch dress costume can benefit from reviewing galleries online where posted images of costumes past reflect the creativity of others. New ideas can spring forth just by seeing what colors and fabrics other witch dressers have used. Here are some hints and ten point checklist to get your witch dress planning ready for Halloween.



Practice casting «spells» and see how the wrist wraps jump out at the audience/viewer. A staff or wand really makes the gesture believable. Tying charms into the knots or sewing them on the wraps make a mystic look for more authentic Wiccan effects. Sewing wristbands of black lycra satin or swimwear fabric make a close fitting wrist wrap. Orange and black rick-rack can be very symbolic and show to good advantage.

By changing the colors used, the ears would also be appropriate for a puppy or a bear costume. There is very little skill or artistry needed to create these easy costume ears. If you can use scissors, a pencil and some glue, you can make these devil headband.

Several stations will be set up with hands on Easter art projects for your little chicks including egg dyeing and a station to hello kitty ear headband. In addition, there will be face painting, one of my kid's favorite things. I bet you can get bunny whiskers and a cute little pink nose!

Making masks are another activity to have on Easter, and you could even have the kids parade the masks through church. Take a paper plate and cut it in half with a curved line making the top part of the mask while the edge of the plate is the bottom.

Some that will read this devotional will remember the year I lost my Dad, and how close I came to losing myself. Those were days filled with grief so deep, I wondered if I'd ever crawl out and days filled with sorrow so great, I didn't care if I ever did. But God in his infinate grace and mercy put people in my life that literally picked me up and carried me through that valley and out on the other side. At the end of the journey, their shoulders were wet from thousands of tears that had been shed as they'd held me, more often than not crying right along with me.

Pig — A pig costume can be made strictly of construction paper and pink clothing. If the pig is small enough a onesie sleeper with feet can be used. The construction paper will be used to cut ears and tails. If a child will wear a taped nose or a nose held on with string, cut a circle that looks like a pig's nose and tape on tie it on.

For a full effect for Easter face painting, make the kids wear bunny costume. You can even attach false bunny teeth under the lips. You can use stencils or tattoos to paint perfect bunnies or Easter eggs. If nothing else, you can inscribe a simple wish, appropriate with the event of Easter.
