Halloween is one of our favorite family fun holidays! When the kids were little, we made sure that everyone had their costumes in plenty of time, because there were always parties and school events that required them before the actual night. While the boys have gotten older, they still love the excitement that surrounds the holiday and the fun and spooky decorations.
Even if your kids are not into the scarier aspects of Halloween, there are still plenty of ways to have some Halloween family fun that will make everyone smile! Here are some of our favorites – scroll down to find resources for them:
- Watch Halloween TV specials and movies
- Read Halloween books
- Bake or cook up some Halloween treats
- Plan a Halloween party
- Make or pick out a Halloween costume
