Halloween can sometimes be a scary holiday for smaller or younger children, with all the ghouls, monsters and witches. If you still want your children to be involved in this holiday, but don’t want them to be frightened, there are a few activities you can do with them.
There are Halloween movies you can watch with your kids that will not be scary! Some to think about are Monsters Inc., It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Casper or Halloween town.
Have a Family Costume Party
Instead of going around the neighborhood for Halloween and not being sure of what you might run into, you can have a family costume party to ensure that your family dresses up cute and cuddly instead of scary and horrifying.
Have Fun Halloween Activities for Kids
If you want to do some fun things with your kids at your home you can try pin the tail on the pumpkin, Halloween pumpkin coloring pages, drawing on pumpkins instead of carving them out, making jack-o-lanterns and more.
Even decorations these days can be a little scary for a kid. But, you can also make these more kid friendly as well by making your own decorations. Try buying old ceramic pots and allow your kids to paint them orange. Then paint faces on them. You can also create witches brew and punch using everyday food items and letting your kids help. If you want to make even more decorations you can find pumpkin, witch and witch hat templates online to print out, color and hang.
If you tend to be on the other side of the fence and you do not have kids, but you do have a lot of trick, treaters coming to your home soon.
