BeautiControlUpdate-this giveaway is closed. Congrats Erinne F

We hope you have been enjoying our Fall Family Fun posts. Well, with the fun of Fall and all that it brings it can also wreak havoc on your skin! It’s a little too dry and cold outside or a bit too dry and warm inside and that can dry your skin out quickly. So we thought we’d do a giveaway that helps you pamper your hands to cope with this fall weather better.

Beauticontrol’s Instant Manicure is an ahhh-mazing product that uses salt from the Dead Sea and essential oils to make your hands softer and smoother than ever. And, it takes less than 1 minute! (Not to mention it smells divine!) It is valued at $27 and we are giving TWO bottle away!

We are excited to be giving away Fall Beauty Prize Package. This includes 2 Beauticontrol Show of Hands Instant Manicures to one lucky reader! (One for you and one for a friend… or 2 for you!) Also included in the prize are a makeup bag with some goodies and a comfy pair of warm socks to keep your feet warm on cold nights!

Eat- There are so many yummy fall foods right now. The days are shorter and the nights are getting cooler so fall comfort foods that warm your tummy are perfect. Here are a few ideas to get you started, but don’t stop here- go enjoy some of your own as a family! You can also grab a few children cookbooks, or read a book like Pumpkin Soup by Helen Cooper.

A few of my favorite dishes are: Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, Apple Cider, Baked Squash, Pot Roast, and Mashed Potatoes

Mmm, my mouth is watering already! I love fall foods! What are some of your favorites?

Dairy Farm- The barnyard is calling! There is farm fun to be had whether you are inside or out.

On the Farm: Visit Youngs Dairy and feed the goats at the petting zoo, play mini golf or enjoy some ice cream. If you are looking for a little more of a real Dairy farm experience check out Local Harvest to help you locate one, but remember their tips about visiting working farms.

In your Home: Make your own butter. Fill a baby food jar halfway with cold heavy cream and a pinch of salt. Shake the jar 10 to 15 mins until a soft butter forms. Drain any remaining liquid. Chill and enjoy!

Corn Maze-Getting lost in a corn maze almost seems like a rite of autumn. If you go in the evening be sure to take a flashlight! Don’t assume that all mazes are similar, be sure to check out their web site or call ahead. Check out which one will suit your family and provide you the most fun together.

Visit Pumpkin Patches and More, The Maize or Corn Mazes America for a list of local mazes if you need help finding one or to check hours (they might even have coupons on their site). Our family’s personal favorite is Tom’s Maze in Germantown.

What Corn Mazes have you been to? Do you have a favorite? Let us know!

Apple fun- There are so many things to do with apples. Grab a few and have some fun. Make some apple crafts, decorations, and don’t forget homemade applesauce.

APPLE PRINTS-Cut an apple in half from the top to bottom. Dip the cut side of the apple into paint and dab it on a paper towel to wipe off the excess paint. Then stamp it onto your paper. When the paint dries, use markers to outline the apple print. Try using larger sheets of paper for wrapping paper, or smaller ones to make fall cards.

APPLE POMANDERS-Grab an apple and a jar of cloves. Stud the apple with cloves by pushing the stems into the apple skin. You can cover the entire apple, make stripes, spirals, or any other design. Let your kids get creative. Tie a ribbon around the apple and suspend it in a room to create a wonderful scent.

APPLE TABLE DECORATIONS-Place a few apples in a bowl on the table. Voila, table decoration and quick healthy snack!

Have any fun apple crafts of your own? Let us know!
