10 Ways to Make This Halloween Your #FavouriteHalloween
#1: Break out the family photos – Take the time to dig through your photo archives to find those photos of your kids in their Halloween costumes. Even better, find the photos of YOU in your Halloween costumes and share those memories with your kids!
#2: Make decorations with your kids – Take a trip to the local craft store and stock up on all the spooky crafts! Nothing says Halloween more than glitter ghosts and black cats (and thankfully for those of us who are less creatively inclined, they have all of that stuff in handy little kits)!
#3: Find a ghostly soundtrack – Put on the spooky music while you are decorating to help you get in the Halloween mood. If you don’t have spooky music on hand, make your own by practicing your best ghosty sounds with your kids!
#4: Spook up your house – Break out the fake cobwebs and creepy spiders and start decorating! Focus your efforts on your front door and windows that are visible from the street!
#5: Rediscover your inner child – Remember when you just HAD to be a sparkly princess ballerina for Halloween? Now’s your chance to rediscover your inner child and join your kids in dressing up!
#6: Plan a Halloween party – Time to put your gross factor skills to the test. Remember the peeled grapes for eyes trick, or the cold noodles for guts? What about the squishy wet cheese brains?
#7: Do Halloween crafts with the kids – Break out the black and orange crayons and download a dozen or so Halloween coloring pages for an afternoon of Halloween coloring fun!
#8: Bake Halloween treats – Pull out the recipe book or blogs and find your Halloween favorites. Personally, Halloween isn’t Halloween without roasted pumpkin seeds and pumpkin-shaped ginger cookies!
#9: Get creative with carving – Jump on Google to get a few ideas and let your imagination go wild. One of my best Halloween finds were these skeleton bodies for mounting your carved pumpkin on.
#10: Win chocolate – And not just win chocolate, but win chocolate for your ENTIRE block from Nestlé ($2,000 worth)! Your children will love you, your neighbors will love (which will come in handy down the road when you need to borrow a milk to wash down all that chocolate)!
