With kids running and playing dressed as their favorite superhero, parents flooding the candy aisle in every store and the sounds of thousands of doorbells being rung in exchange for tricks or treat. That means it’s almost time for Halloween, but although it is a fun and festive holiday it is also the dangerous. For parents who want to take their children treat or treating during the day but have nothing planned for the evening, here are some helpful ways to put the spook in your night that is fun for the whole family.
If you have children between the age of six and nine, hiding candy throughout the house and giving scary clues to where they are may not scream scary but will scream fun as they look to find extra candy. The bigger the candy more, the harder the clue and the more laughter you will have as you see your kids pull their hair out to find it.
Practical Joke War
Don’t do the typical scary movies; this day is perfect because you’re dressed in scary attire anyway, grab your phone or camera and record yourself scary the living daylights out of a family member or neighbor. Now you have a scary slash comedy film to look at afterwards.
By this time it is probably dinner time, foods that are perfect for this holiday includes spaghetti for worms, meatloaf molded into a brain shape and for desert marshmallows with Hershey’s kisses in the center for the eye balls.
After the end of the day after everyone has fell asleep from the activities, pat yourself on the back for not only having a fun day with the family but for also keeping everyone, especially your children, safe and sound.
