The recycling message is an important one to us at Totally Kids. Green Halloween, National Costume Swap Day is a fun way of teaching our kids that they too can take a personal responsibility in helping save Mother Earth.
Bring in a child size Halloween costume to swap and take home a “new to you” one.
Hop on your brooms and fly in for fun and games, prizes, hot cider and treats. Start bringing your costumes in NOW!
Keep the GREEN going!
Before you visit us, check under your beds and back of closets for any gently used toys that the kiddos are no longer playing with or need. The toys for Autism collection is a GREEN project that is ongoing year long.
WANTED: GENTLY USED TOY DONATIONS
All parents in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area! Totally Kids
is accepting all toy donations to benefit the locally headquartered group “Parents United Against Autism”. We’ll take the donated gently used toys to local families in need. Aside from helping our friends and neighbors, this is an excellent opportunity to clear out your closets a little and keep those unused toys from ending up on a landfill for the next 100 years. Please bring whatever you can.
Make an Egg-stra Special Recycled Bat at home. All Free Crafts will show you how.
Green Halloween food tip: Eat your leftovers! There is over 29 million tons of food waste each year, enough to fill the Rose Bowl every three days and the rotting food in landfills contributes to global warming.
You may recall from previous posts, that our Devon, aka Mrs. B., is a dedicated purple jersey wearing, rather superstitious Vikings fan. (she believes that she possesses some magic powers – or that her dogs do) We will not talk about the Jets game, it is over and done with. From this photo, it looks like her dogs also share a thing for football. Well, maybe they don’t always share that football, but like the game.
Wags and Tales Bio:
Hi! My name is Brandi, and this is my fur brother Brutus. (You can tell which one I am; I’m wearing the pink collar.) We love to take walks, play fetch and snuggle. I lived at my house all alone, until my humans adopted Brutus from the MN Boxer Rescue. I don’t know what I did without him! He has taught me how to snuggle and play like a good dog. I have taught him how to chew on things we are not supposed to! It’s a win win situation for me. We also have some creatures that live with us called “cats.” I have taught Brutus how not to eat them, and he has taught me how to chase them, but again, we do not eat them, that is not allowed. Sometimes it gets really crazy at our house! But we love to love our humans. It is our most favorite thing to do! We snuggle up and go to sleep as soon as they sit down on the couch. Well, my human is telling me its time to go on a walk, (another one of my favorite things to do), but I am sure you will hear from me again! Bye!!!!
If you have a special pooch and would like to share any tales, we would be pleased to post it here on Wednesday’s Wags and Tales. Send photos and stories to firstname.lastname@example.org.
