Last night, CP#1 and #2 were treated to a new Halloween tradition called “Ghosting.” The festive activity is a neighborhood endeavor. Each family is assigned a neighbor to “boo” during the month of October. The kids fill a pumpkin with Halloween goodies, sneak up to their neighbor’s door, ring the bell, leave the pumpkin, and run to a hiding place as fast as they can.

We prepared by dressing all in black from head to toe. MP kept referring to CP#1 and #2 as Spy Kids, which delighted them to no end. The team also had a great time filling up our pumpkin with candy, stickers, and glowing skeletons. We included a print-out of a ghost and a poem much like this one:

You’ve Been Ghosted!
Late last night, we left you a treat. The tradition is fun, one we hope you’ll repeat.
Take the ghost and pin it on your door, to let others know, you need ghosted no more.
Now it’s your duty to pass on the surprise, to more families, we must advise.
Gather some treats and deliver them soon, within two nights, under the light of the moon.
Include a ghost with each package you give, along with this poem for the tradition to live.

While shopping the Craft & Art Show at the Yarmouth Clam Festival this summer, the team discovered The Merry Crown Society. Shop owner, Bonnie, who hails from Fryeburg, designs whimsical crowns, wands, swords, and masks using felt made from recycled plastic bottles. CP#2 was completely smitten with Bonnie’s booth. If MP allowed it, he would spent hours trying out cool disguises.

It’s been awhile since Cute Potato featured a frugal find. Since Halloween is less than two weeks away, MP thought she’d share one of her favorite places to shop for inexpensive costumes.

Lots for Tots, with locations in Falmouth and Scarborough, is the place to find a treasure trove of costumes for babies, toddlers, and kids. On the day MP visited, she discovered everything from cozy Winnie the Pooh themed dress ups to a corduroy hobby horse costume.

Cute and cozy Disney costumes.
