Halloween Foam Photo Frames

Easy? Yep. That's how we celebrate holiday fun with 30 roughneck kids who won't remember who gave them what anyway.

I hit the jackpot the other day. It was only the second week of October, and Michael's already had some of their Halloween stuff marked down.

Easy? Yep. That's how we celebrate holiday fun with 30 roughneck kids who won't remember who gave them what anyway. Just kidding. Their parents will know who gave them that useful frame. Congratulations, you're now the thoughtful parent who didn't contribute to cavities and national obesity. Wow, Halloween just got political.
