Are you as excited about the chocolate and costume filled weekend ahead as we are?
We thought it might be fun to share a few of the Halloween resources we’ve come across which might make good additions to a weekend blog post or add a bit of holiday fun to your sidebar.
So here goes:
Online Pumpkin Carving
Use this web application from Spookathon.com to carve your own virtual pumpkin. You can then download the carving as an image or embed the jack-o-lantern right inside of a post or page on your blog.
PrimaryGames.com has kid friendly and fun widgets and resources such as puzzles and countdowns that can be put right on your blog.
Images and Avatars
One of our favorite free-use image sites, FindIcons.com, has many excellent images that would also make a great costume for your normal user or blog avatar as well!
Learning About Halloween
This post wouldn’t be complete without encouraging you to check out Larry Ferlazzo’s The Best Websites for Learning About Halloween list on his blog. This recently updated list is full of web resources on the history and cultural practices of both Halloween and The Day of the Dead.
