Ultimate Guide to Halloween Family Fun With Your Kids

Posted on: September 28th, 2018 by

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
  • Try some Halloween crafts

Be sure to share your Halloween family fun pictures with us on Facebook or tag us on Instagram @JerseyFamilyFun!

  2. Mary Jean May says:

    I have lots of Halloween costumes that my kids wore only once when they were young. Is there any where to donate them? Or just give them to good will.

      You could try a Freecyle group on Facebook. I would also suggest contacting your local United Way. The United Way could let you know which organizations are collecting costumes for children in need. – Jenn
