How to Make Caramel Apples

Homemade Caramel ApplesA great activity now that autumn and Halloween are almost upon is making homemade caramel apples.  Be sure to ask you parents first, as you’ll most likely need both their help and their permission.

Ingredients:

  • 6 apples
  • 1 ounce of caramel
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 6 sticks to place the apples upon (these can be skewers or Popsicle sticks)

Instructions:

  1. Remove the stem from each apple.
  2. In place of the stem, skewer each apple with a stick.  Do not go all the way through the apple, but make sure to have several inches of wood embedded in the apple.
  3. Either butter a baking sheet, or coat a baking sheet with a layer of wax paper.
  4. Place the caramel and the milk into a bowl.  Put the bowl in the microwave.  Microwave on high for 2 minutes, breaking the 2 minutes up into 30 second intervals when you check and stir the caramel.
  5. After removing the caramel from the microwave, allow it to cool slightly.
  6. Roll each apple in the caramel until it is coated, and then place on the baking tray to dry.
  7. If you wish, you can sprinkle extra goodies–like chocolate chips, sprinkles or marshmallows–onto the apples.

The Skip-It

Skip-ItThe Skip-It, a toy aimed primarily at girls, was all the rage back when I was in school.  I remember spending an entire recess period standing in line to use the Skip-It, the seemingly-endless periods of waiting interspersed with brief moments of bliss  (Of course, the Skip-It that I was waiting in line to use was actually mine, so maybe I don’t actually have a legitimate complaint there).   Even my seven year-old daughter,  usually separated from her computer or the television only by force, loves going outside to play with her Skip-It.

Skip-Its are fun and easy to use.  Simply slip the loop over one foot and swing the Skip-It around your body, alternatively jumping over it with your other foot.  Your parents will probably rush right out the door to get you one, since its virtually guaranteed to get you up-and-about as opposed to sitting silently in your chair at the computer.

Saying Safe on Halloween

Trick-or-TreatingHalloween is a fun time, filled with costumes and candy and Trick-or-Treating with friends.  During the festivities, however, it is important not to lose sight of staying safe.

1.  Trick-or-Treat with your parents or in groups. 

2.  Don’t eat any candy until it has been inspected by Mom or Dad.

3.  Don’t eat homemade or unpackaged treats.  If the store-bought treat has been removed from its original packaging, discard it.

4.  Don’t go into any stranger’s house, no matter how nice they seem.

5.  Stay in well-lit and well-populated areas.
