I love this time of year, the leaves start changing colors, the weather cools down enough to start wearing hoodies. Candy is lining up the shelves at your favorite retailer, costumes, party planning supplies, decorations, fall has finally arrived and along with it come harvest festivals, trick-or-treating,
and pumpkin picking!
I like to start a tad bit early for Halloween, I’m sure everyone knows the longer you wait the harder
it will be to find exactly what costumes you and your children want, party planning supplies, the best pumpkins in the patch, the list goes on!
For the past few years I’ve planned a theme for our costumes that usually goes together. This doesn’t always happen as planned so I switch things up. I search around a lot online for ideas and will only go in the party stores to see if a costume actually fits appropriately. This is vital when ordering online because the returning process and holiday demand could sway your costume choice if its not available to get back to you in time! When my children are older they can give me their input on what they’d like to dress up as or what crafts/treats they’d like to include in our party planning.
I’m big into pictures! Pictures as a group and individually with props are always fun! This can be
a hard task when you have young children. Breathe, have patience, and make it fun!
We plan on having a pretty big party this year with friends (parents and their children).
We are still planning on what to make for appetizers, treats, and drinks. I personally love
Hershey’s chocolate so I’m sure there will be Hershey’s Kit-Kats, Hershey’s Reeses Cups (my childhood favorite) and much more!
1. Paint the bottom of child's foot with white paint or any color you desire.
2. Press onto black paper (any color is allowed). Allow to dry.
3. Glue on a couple of google eyes.
4. Extra, you can add a colorful feather for accent, glitter, the possibilities are endless!
Craft Idea 2:
Halloween Pumpkin Garland/Center Piece Idea
What you will need:
- Orange Foam Sheets or Pre-cut Pumpkin Cutouts in Foam
- Different color foam sheets for eyes, nose, mouth or pre-cuts
- Sharpie (write names on the back or to draw on the foam)
- Black string, yarn, or elastic to hang them up
* You can use whatever you would like to decorate the pumpkins,
glitter glue, stickers, stick on jewels, make the pumpkins yours!*
Depending on the age of the children I’d draw up the pumpkins and cut them out of the
foam beforehand or use pre-cut pumpkins and expressions.
The kids can create these however they may like, creativity is key!
Be sure to write their names on the back so you know who’s is who’s!
