I bookmarked this video last year with plans to make this magical substance at Halloween, but somehow the link got buried and lost. I found it last night and I am very excited for this to be my weekend project. If everything works out like in the video, I will be re-enacting my favorite scenes from both Ghostbusters and You Can’t Do that on Television with a little bit more authenticity from now on.
Jim Henson and his Muppeteers show kids how to make puppets from simple things like socks. This video aired on Public Television in 1969, prior to Sesame Street, on Iowa Public Television’s “Volume See” kids’ show.
One thing I always have laying around is cereal boxes. So I was very intrigued by this article from She Knows Halloween, that lets you take and cereal box and turn it into a fun decoration. It is a must-do for all you craft fiends and it will add a very retro DIY vibe to your Halloween this year. Check out the results.

In these troubled times, we’re all looking for cheap entertainment options. Evolutionary biology has granted most of us humans with the perfect inexpensive distraction: our thumbs. That’s right; you too can amuse yourself at no cost by creating art with your thumbs!
I spent the recession of the early ’80s learning to draw all sorts of critters and objects using just my thumbprints and a few scribbles, dots, and lines. Now seems like the optimal time to resurrect this talent.
All you need to get started is an inkpad and a thin marker…and a thumb, of course. A pinky and an index finger wouldn’t hurt either, in case you want to get fancy.
Your artwork can be large…
…and if you get really good, your can create a masterpiece…
