What’s Streaming for Halloween #StreamTeam

Halloween Streaming

I swear my kids wait all year for Halloween! In fact, as soon as Halloween is over they start planning their costumes for the following years Halloween however they probably change their minds about 6 times throughout the year since they really base it on their favorite tv/movie at the time.

My little guy (not shockingly) is dressing up as his favorite Skylander character, Wallop and my big guy is dressing up as the wrestler, Jake the Snake. Now that we are done with costumes, we are going to decorate the outside of our house (besides their birthdays, this is their absolute favorite day of the year) and then with the help of Netflix, we are going to get our carve on (carving rookie here).

If you are still looking for some Halloween costume, decoration or pumpkin carving inspiration, check out this great Netflix guide to Halloween:

Make sure to stop by a Yogurty’s tomorrow with your little one (under 10 years of age) dressed up in costume to receive a FREE frozen yogurt (yummmm). In the spirit of halloween, make sure to try the special flavour … Pumpkinstein yogurt (fall spices coloured green).



See you there

A New Way to Trick-or-Treat

Why not try something different this year!!! No, I dont mean not to trick-or-treat (because we all know that would never happen), it just means teaching your children about giving.

Hand out Change for Kids coins supporting Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital. Tons of amazing prizes to be won!!! It’s like giving away a Lotto ticket really.
Here’s how it works (it’s easy and fun):

Step 1: Buy a $5 Change for Kids Coin Card
– you can buy an activated card at any Scotiabank branch in the GTA
– you can also find the coin cards at Spirit Halloween, Costco, Toys“R”Us, newspapers or magazines (these must be activated which can be done on their website)

Step 2: Hand out coins to trick-or-treaters
Pop out the coins from your card and have your child pass them on to other children (well maybe their parents) while walking around or when kids come your door

Step 3: Make sure to tell the kids and their parents to go online and enter the coin’s PIN code for their chance to win amazing prizes (see its like a Lotto ticket but supporting a great cause)!

Each coin has a unique PIN code. With the help of a parent or guardian, kids can enter their PIN code at www.changeforkids.ca starting October 31, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. for their chance to win instant prizes and be entered into a final draw. There are more than 500 prizes to be won, including a Grand Prize weekend stay at Great Wolf Lodge for your family and 9 other families of your choice, plus 10 individual one-night stays at Great Wolf Lodge, and Cineplex movie tickets!

Best of all, every time a child enters a PIN code, Scotiabank will make a $5 donation to Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital (to a maximum of $20,000).

For those of you who dont know, Change for Kids supports Holland Bloorview’s highest priority needs: life changing treatments and therapies for kids with autism, acquired brain injury, cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities, and programs like arts, music, life skills and respite care.

This Halloween, give more than a treat.
