For those of you eager to start your own Halloween traditions this year, here are a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
1. Show Your Spirit and Decorate! If you haven't decorated the house for Halloween yet, - What are you waiting for? Make it a family activity and make sure everyone gets in on the action. Isn't it fun to see the faces of the trick or treaters light up as they look at all of your Halloween decorations?
2. Play a game of "CLUE". Halloween is all about mystery and playing a game of CLUE will be fun for the whole family. Play the movie in the background for an added touch.
3. Read Bedtime Stories by Candle light. There are so many Halloween books that are more sweet than spooky. Try The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything, or why not write a story together?
4. Have a Spooky Movie Night. Curl up with popcorn and other delicious munchies and watch all of the classics. It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is a must. The Nightmare Before Christmas and Bednobs and Broomsticks are other great movies for kids. Older kids might enjoy something a bit scarier and if you're like us, (with no kids), why not watch a few Horror classics?
What are your Halloween traditions? Is there something that you do every year that you always look forward to?
