Hallmark Halloween 2013

By Thismomloves @ThisMomLoves
As a member of Hallmark's Press Pause panel, I am lucky enough to receive regular shipments of their latest offerings. If you've been reading This Mom Loves for a while, you know I'm a sucker for holiday-themed decor, and here are my favourites from Hallmark's 2013 Halloween collection:
All The Goodies:
Hallmark Halloween 2013
Alive and Talking Pumpkin ($19.95)
This pumpkin is motion-activated, and lights up with changing expressions and phrases. A fun idea for the porch on Halloween night...though I'm thinking I could have some fun with this in the classroom too!
Hallmark Halloween 2013
Witchiest of Witches Shadowcaster ($14.95)
This is my favorite - just place it near a wall and turn it on, and it will project spooky, flickering shadows.

Whoo's Watching Me? Singing Owl Techno Plush ($15.95 with the purchase of 1 card)
When you turn this cute little guy on, his eyes move side-to-side and he sings a parody of "Somebody's Watching Me". The kids love this one - there's something about adding plush to an item that just attracts children, and when you add in a funny may need extra batteries!

Pics 'n' Props Halloween Party Activity Kit ($19.95)
These Pics 'n' Props kits are neat, as you can have a little photo shoot in advance of a holiday, or use them to spice up a party. Hallmark sent me one with a graduation theme, and the Grade 8's at school used it to set up a fun photo booth corner at graduation. This one would be neat for a spooky gathering, with photo props, masks, backdrop and a 4 x 6 album to hold all of the memories.

Fortune-telling Magic Mirror ($19.95)
Another motion-activated item, this one lights up and shares fortunes with passersby. The fortunes are for general audiences (example: I predict something dark in your future. I think it must be, yes it is, chocolate), which I think my students will enjoy if I bring this in as a classroom decoration as well.

And of course, Hallmark has Halloween cards too, if you feel you need to mark the occasion in that manner. Don't bother sending me a card...I'll just take the chocolate!
