A great time to dress up and be something different. Maybe a ghost or a skeleton or a princess or a scarecrow. Dressing up is great fun.
You can opt to purchase a costume online or DIY your own creation.
In our house we have done both and honestly I preferred the do it yourself version not only because it was the more frugal choice but creating a costume is fun and artistic.
One year my son was an astronaut and another year he was a scarecrow and we had great fun putting the costumes together.
Class parties, trick or treating, fun with family and friends.
Halloween is a great time to dress up and have a class party or get together with friends. Whether you are bobbing for apples, playing games or stocking up on treats.
Some people go all out on the Halloween decorations and the carving of pumpkins.
Trick or treating is the main event, walking the neighborhood and knocking on doors, or maybe your local mall does a trick or treat event. Our local downtown business association puts on a great trick or treat event for the kids.
Candy versus no candy.
Let’s face it there is a lot of sugar to be had at Halloween and even in the few days after Halloween when the chocolate bars and candy are discounted at the stores.
So what do you give out if you don’t want to add to all the sugar and candy?
