North East Mall will offer Hurst-area children a safe place to take part in Halloween activities as the Simon Kidgits Club presents its annual Halloween event on Friday, October 31 from 4 – 6 p.m..

This year, The Simon Kidgits Club will recognize October as Bully Prevention Month in association with ‘Malls & Retailers Unite Against Bullying,’ and their children’s property Captain McFinn.
Captain McFinn promotes social and emotional development in children through live virtual playdates, online games, apps and resources for parents and teachers. A free app called The Bully Free Zone will be available for download at the event. The Bully Free Zone is an app released by Captain McFinn and features fun activities, a new McFinn cartoon, and a chance for families to win a free iPad Air.

Families who download the app can sign the Bully Free pledge and help spread the word about bully prevention. They can also spread kindness with one of the app’s featured activities, the Kindness Calendar. With the Kindness Calendar, children and parents receive prompts to complete acts of kindness. Once an act is complete, it is tracked in the Kindness feed. The more kind acts that are accomplished, the more badges children and their parents receive. This free app is a perfect and fun way for families to participate in Bully Prevention Month.

North East Mall’s Boo Fest event will take place on Halloween in Center Court and will feature several activity stations for children to enjoy including interactive craft projects, games, scary stories and more. Additionally, kids can stay after the Boo Fest event for Mall-wide trick-or-treating, beginning at 6 p.m. at participating stores. A safe, indoor alternative to traditional trick-or-treating, Mall-o-ween will be a frightfully fun experience for the whole family.

Amazon is offering Guidance On Creating Your Own Will & Power of Attorney: Legal Self Help Guide [Kindle Edition] for FREE (reg. $29.95)

Wills and powers of attorney are not only for people who are at the age where death is not far away. People die at all ages. A will is needed if you have assets and property to be allocated to those you wish to benefit. A power of attorney can help fulfill your specific wishes if you are ever in a comma. Now is the time to think about creating your legal documents if you have not created them. If you have created them, make sure that your documents are current and reflect the changes in your life because the court will look to these documents as proof of your wishes. If you don’t have them or they are missing, the court will apply state laws. These laws may not reflect your wishes, so make sure you look seriously at the making or updating of your documents at the earliest.

  • ensure your possessions will be distributed as you wish,
  • authorize someone to act on your behalf regarding healthcare and financial matters if you become unable to make your own decisions,
  • reduce the potential family conflicts,
  • organize important estate records,
  • specify funeral wishes,
  • reduce stress and heartache for loved ones,
  • expedite the legal process,
  • and much more.

Thanks, Clip and Follow!
