While some people consider Halloween one of the best times to join in on parties, parades, and celebrations galore, some people are just not into that kind of thing! There are other ways to make Halloween memorable at home, so no worries if going out isn't really your Halloween vibe. To make October 31 feel special and just as festive, try out some of these ideas that will make you the host with the most.
Taste test all the best Halloween candies.
Start your holiday on an extra-sweet note and put all of this season's candies to the test—taste test, that is. There are tons of new treats this year, like glow-in-the-dark chocolates and green KitKats. Here are the top 10 candies in the USA
It's a classic Halloween activity for a reason. Grab pumpkins for the whole family (groceries stores tend to sell them if you don't feel like venturing out to a patch). Then you can either free-hand a design or print out one of the many templates floating around the interwebs. Be creative and let your children’s imagination take front and center!
Wear your costume—yes, still!
Just because you're at home doesn't mean you shouldn't step out in your funniest, spookiest, or cutest costume. Have an at home costume contest, see who comes out on top! Cat ears are highly encouraged, or go vintage and cut some holes in old sheets for a ghoulish ghost!
One of my favorite Halloween memories is dressing up my dog Midnight every year in something silly. She was a real team player letting us put silly hats and capes on her. And every year my brother and I would stand next to her in her costumes and take pictures! What fun Halloween traditions does your family have?
Most people love a good scare on Halloween, but not when it comes to the safety of our little trick-or-treaters.
Luckily, there are a lot of things parents and kids can do to stay safe this week.
-Plan costumes that are bright and reflective. You can even add reflective tape to outfits or candy bags and give your kids glow sticks to help them see and be seen.
-When picking out a costume, make sure it is the right size. This helps prevent trips and falls.
-Choose face paint over a mask when possible. Masks can limit children’s vision but make sure the make-up is non-toxic.
-Parents should join kids 12 and under for trick-or-treating.
-Remind them to look both ways before crossing the street.
-Finally, slow down and be alert! Kids are excited on Halloween and may dart into the street.
Reminder that if you think your little ones aren’t quite ready to be out and about trick or treating, or you’d rather your children be in a safe adult monitored environment, that Team ELM is offering Kids Night Out (Halloween Style) as a great alternative to celebrating!
