Halloween Decorating Ideas for RVs

Just because you may be on the road during Halloween doesn’t mean you have to miss out on some of the fun. Part of the RV lifestyle is enjoying the holidays no matter where you are. If you are an Oklahoma RV owner, your Halloween plans don’t have to be elaborate to be enjoyable. Here are some ideas to make Halloween in your RV a memorable one.

Carve a pumpkin. Even if you haven’t done it for years, carving a pumpkin can be a lot of fun. It will bring back a flood of memories. Use a battery-powered light or glow stick inside to give it a spooky glow. You can even clean and boil the seeds in very salty water, and then dry them out for a savory snack. If you don’t want to go as far as carving a pumpkin, at least buy a few small ones for decorations in and around your RV. Pumpkins are an inexpensive way to add to the “spirit” of the holiday.

Buy some Halloween lights. You can find Halloween orange party lights at party and department stores. These can be strung around the awning of your RV or even around the edge. Use them around your pad or even on any nearby trees or shrubs. Halloween lights can add a festival and slightly spooky effect to the fall evenings.

Use Halloween colored items. Dollar type stores have a variety of items like table clothes, utensils, paper plates and cups in a variety of colors, including orange and black. They will even have items specifically designed for the holiday. These dollar stores can be a great resource for Halloween decorations on the cheap side.

Use Cornstalks and Indian corn. Many farmers’ markets will have dried corn and cornstalks available that you can easily turn into fall decorations.

Make a ghost or two. Pillow cases can make good small ghosts. Put a small pumpkin or other small round object in the pillow case to serve as the head. Use string to secure the pumpkin “head” inside the bottom of the pillow case. You can hang it from the top or give it a flying appearance by attaching both ends horizontally. Use a sheet and a larger round object if you want something more substantial.

Decorating can be a big part of Halloween in an RV. You can also find out if your campground has a trick or treat evening planned for the kids, or fall dance, or even some sort of spooky attraction nearby. Have a safe Halloween from all of us at Leisure Time RV!

Earth Day Tips

Everyone knows how important it is to be kind to the environment. Our planet has limited resources and it’s best to remember that when it comes to daily life. Many people have not caught on to the concept of doing everything they can to help out. So, we’ve got a few suggestions to inspire you to get going green.

For Your RV

Have you ever thought of adding solar panels to the roof of your camper? They pay for themselves many times over once installed because they start working immediately. The unit just sits there; why not let it accumulate power? This saves energy and makes electricity more available for you. It’s a win/win!

Compost PileFor Waste

If you are solid in any place for a period of time, there is no reason why you can’t make a compost pile. All of your food waste can stay out of the trashcan and go right back into the ground. Whether they are organic items or processed, it’s food and the bugs will be grateful. All it takes to do such as dig any size hole and keep the dirt nearby. When there are disposable leftovers, throw them in the hole and add a mixture of dirt and leaves to go on top. After a few times, go a head and add some water, too.

For Life

There is no need to throw away nearly as much as most people do. Be sure to check each item thoroughly for a recycle symbol and dispose of it properly. Not everything that can be recycled has a symbol so make sure you aren’t missing an opportunity. Is an item not recyclable? Repurpose it! This gives you the ability to be creative and put a unique spin on something that could inspire others to get in on the action.

With these tips, there are plenty of reasons to keep Earth Day going all year long. Do you stay green in your Oklahoma City RV? Let us know how you practice conservation in the comments below!

Earth Day Events

We here in Oklahoma City know all about being friendly to the earth. So, Earth Day comes as no surprise to us!  Most of us do not need a day to make everyone aware of now important our resources are. Still, there are those who have not caught on and we’re here to help! All across the city there will be people who are excited to share their knowledge and expertise on the topic of going green. Here are some of our favorites!

Earth Fest

Haven’t had enough for just one day? There’s more to come! At Martin Park Nature Center on the 27th, there will be another day of learning and accomplishment in the green department. Information on compost piles, energy efficiency, recycling, storm water collection, and much more will be discussed in seminars between 1 and 4pm.
