Halloween day is an exciting one for many children. They get a chance to joke, prank, laugh, and eat things that are not good for them without much admonishment from their family and friends. Unfortunately, this is also a day when people get hurt. But it can also be a day when you spend good quality time together.
Watch scary movies
There are many horror movies on the market right now---some have recently been released. But others have been around since you and your parents were born. You can laugh with your children about how afraid of the dark you were after watching these movies and how you constantly peeked around the corner scared a monster will appear out from nowhere and slaughter you. Also, you can help them to become more educated as you give them facts about some of the classics created by famous film writers such as Alfred Hitchcock. In turn, you can find out what children are doing when they hangout.
Surprise your children with a goodie bag
Your children don’t have to go from door –to- door in order to enjoy their favorite candy. And because you purchased the candy yourself, you know where it came from and it is okay for them to eat it. Gone are the days when your children argue and fight over who has more candy.
Get together and bake their favorite treat
On the way to the store, you will get a chance to see the neighborhood kids in their costumes and really get to delight over the decorations that the community families have displayed proudly on their front yards. Your family will have fun gathering the ingredients for your delicious treats. And, they will feel as if they are a part of the Halloween experience.
Tell scary stories
Light up the fireplace and sit around each other as you spook each other with your favorite tales. Just be sure to keep up with the clock. You could have so much fun that you miss your bed time.
Offer your classmates a treat
Instead of candy, you can give them something they can really use. Fill a Ziploc bag with school supplies such as pencils and stationery decorated for Halloween. Many stores sale these items for around a dollar or two. Your children’s classmates will remember you even after the holiday is over.
