Happy November!

Posted on: November 6, 2007

Hey Everybody,

Happy November! How was everyone’s Halloween? Mine was great. I was able to get to the haunted house and the get-together at my community center to drink cider, eat donuts, and visit with neighbors I hadn’t seen in quite some time. I saw lots of really cool costumes! One lady was dressed up as spaghetti – complete with a table top that she carried around and noodles on her head! I also saw a little boy dressed as the Pope! I’d love to hear about the great costumes you

Now for this week’s idea: Have a tye-dyeing party. Tell your friends to bring anything they want – old t-shirts, socks, sheets, or even underwear! If it’s too cold to go outside to tye-dye, the bathtub is a great way to keep the mess controlled. Be sure to ask a parent beforehand though, as it can get messy.

A fun twist on tye-dyeing is to buy some matching white shirts and tye-dye them for each other! If you want to go even further, get all of your friends to wear them to school on the same day – you’ll be sure to make a statement – if not of fashion then of friendship!

As always, send pictures of your finished products and I’ll post them next week!

That’s all for now,

Each week Girl Talk brings you the Idea of the Week filled with fun and creative alternatives to drinking alcohol. It may seem that all your friends are spending their time partying and you’re probably thinking your only option is to join in. But research shows: nearly 75% of girls drink alcohol “to fit in.” That means many girls are making bad (and illegal!) choices because they feel like they need to. Do you want to suffer the negative consequences that come with underage drinking? Here’s my advice: be the cool girl who finds something else to do instead – you’ll probably find that other girls around you will be thankful and relieved to have something fun and safe to do!
