Tips Of The Month

Each month we share small bits of practical advice that you can implement to improve your life or that of others.


Spiced Pumpkin Warm-Up

Fall is here and many people like to drink pumpkin beverages. This is a quick and easy home-made pumpkin beverage you can enjoy with friends and family.
  • Gather the ingredients. You will need 2 cups half-and-half cream, 3 tablespoons sugar, 2 tablespoons canned pumpkin, 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, 1/4 a teaspoon vanilla extract, whipped cream.
  • Combine the ingredients. In a small saucepan combine the cream, sugar, pumpkin and pie spice.
  • Heat the ingredients. Cook the ingredients on medium heat until everything is heated through and blended together.
  • Remove from heat. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla. You can top with whipped cream if you like.


Scarecrow Craft

Crafts can be a useful activity for a distraction, and they are also a great way to spend time with any kids you have in your life. The following craft uses popsicle sticks to create a festive scarecrow.
  • Gather your materials. For this craft, you'll need eight popsicle sticks, glue, scissors, a black or brown marker, brown paint, a small piece of cardboard, and harvest color paper.
  • Begin creating your scarecrow. Take a small piece of cardboard (e.g. a piece of a cereal box) and spread glue on it. Next, place seven of the eight popsicle sticks in a row and on the glue. Next, place the last stick diagonally towards the top to make the hat and then glue pieces of the scarecrow's hair below the hat.
  • Paint the hat brown, and wait for it to dry. After the paint dries, use your different colored paper and scissors to cut out eyes, a nose, and any additional accessories you'd like to add. Finally, draw on the mouth with your marker. Your finished product will look like this.
