Men are most definatley the hardest people to craft for, no doubt about it! So why don't we share our ideas here. Things we've made in the past, planning to make, or just though of! Whether they be fathers, husbands, brothers, nephews, whatever! Post it!

Brothers: Homemade boxers, if you can sew! Buy a pattern, and some fabric/notions, your ready to go.

I LOVE the idea of the hot chocolate kit. I have a question though. How/What do you use to make the chocolate dipped spoons? My craft is painting on jars and such, but I love learning new crafts and new ideas. We're on a budget this year too. First year married, money's tight. But I've got some family, my side and his, that would love the hot chocolate kit. Thanks!

I know your not talking to me, but I did that last year as gifts! You can use heavy plastic spoons. Here's a site that has instructions that will help! Good luck Smiley

14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Re: I need MORE Halloween Party games on: October 12, 2008 02:55:40 PM
Night games are great. There's one, I forgot the name, but you split the group in half, and send half of them in the backyard of the house. The team in front waits for about 3 minutes, while the team in the back hides. Once there ready, they have to run around the house and back to where they began without getting tagged. If your tagged, you join the other team. Last person standing, wins. It's so much fun, and will gurantee laughs. Search "night games" in Google, and they'll be a bunch.

How about fishing for apples? I've always wanted to do that, haha. Or carving pumpkins (get them pre-cleaned and such before, so all the kids have to do is carve them). Or if you dont want to mess with that, have them paint the really small pumpkins, the ones that are slightly bigger than your fist. You put a cute face on them, and such.

Activites:

-sledding
-white elephant gift exchange (everyone brings and wraps a 15$ gift, and than you trade them, but it's a game. Super fun.)
-talking
-dance game thing that we always do at my parties

Food:

-pizza (homemade)
-chips
-soda
-xmas cookies/ice cream

Decorations:

-green/red crepe paper



I need help! Especially when it comes to decorations! My walls are already green, so it's a good start, haah. Thanks!!

My dad makes our xmas wreath each year, out of the trimmings of our xmas tree! It's perfect, and looks so much better than the bought ones. Also, make cookies/candy to give away to those people who you feel you need/want to give a gift, but can't spend a lot of money on.

What can I make for a wide variety of 14 year old girlfriends? Around 13 girls, that have very different personalities. Something I can "mass produce" for all of them! Thanks!
