Recipes Using Pre Sweetened Kool-Aid?
I have too much kool aid on hand after a sale this summer. I was really figuring that we would use it but we didn't! Is there a cake recipe or other dessert I can use it in so I don't waste it? I really don't need any punch. melody_yesterday

Wooden Spoon Reindeer
I need the directions for making Christmas Reindeer out of wooden spoons. You use the whole spoon. The handles make up the legs and the spoon makes the body. You then decorate them with felt saddles, ears and googly eyes. I just can't remember the placement of the spoon for the face.

Baby's First Halloween Card
When my granddaughter was an infant, she was too young for trick or treating on her first Halloween so I bought a "Baby's 1st Halloween" greeting card. We dressed my granddaughter in a costume and at every house we stopped at, we said we didn't want candy but we would like them to sign the card.
Switching the Screen for the Storm Window on Halloween
When Halloween is here it's just about time to switch from a screen in the front door and a storm window. On Halloween I take the screen out - pass the candy through it and the next morning put the storm window in. I did this when I had a dog so that she wouldn't bother the goblins - now it's just an easy way to get the job done. By Barbara

Alcohol - A Wonder for Cleaning
Rubbing alcohol (70% isopropyl alcohol) is very inexpensive to use. In our market you get two 16 ounce bottles for $.99. I use rubbing alcohol to clean up in the kitchen.
Homemade Outdoor Twister Game

Bedside Beverage Idea
My DH is handicapped and he has a terrible time turning over his drink by the bedside. He loves to drink flavored drinks made with Splenda as he is a diabetic. I have come up with a great way to keep his drink safe and handy for him.
Polar Fleece Blankets As Sheets
I live in Adelaide, South Australia. The winters here get cold (no snow) but houses here do NOT have any form of central heating. Instead of using electric blankets (dangerous with children jumping on bed), we use polar fleece blankets as sheets.
Preventing Barbecue Flare-ups
To prevent flare-ups when barbecuing, place lettuce leaves on the hot coals before barbecuing fatty meat. The lettuce will blacken but not ignite.
