3 Ways To Give Your Children A Halloween They Will Never Forget

By Guest Author On August 6, 2011 Under Improve Your Life, Self Help Tips, Self Improvement, Setting Goals

Trick or Treating is a long established tradition at Halloween but not all parents are comfortable with their children taking part. Not everyone is ready for their young children to go off without grownup supervision and knock on strangers doors. Luckily there are plenty of alternatives for Halloween this year which will still ensure they have a wonderful time.

#1 Host your own Halloween party:
There’s no need to go trick or treating if you are having a Halloween party at your household, right?
Why not make it extra special and get in haunted decorations (spider webs, pumpkins and even ghoulish tombstones). Your kids will love the thought of decorating the house and you can even get them involved with choosing the food and drink and sending out haunted invitations.
They will still want to dress up for Halloween so why not consider a themed party. Costume parties for Halloween involving movie characters and superheroes are becoming more and more popular for Halloween and some examples could include a Hansel Costume , Luke Skywalker Costume or even a Curious George Costume .

#2 Visit a Costume Parade:
Most small towns, and malls in bigger towns, host costume parades and events during Halloween. These are family friendly gatherings and who knows, your child might even win a prize if they are dressed in a great costume. There will often be candy and other surprises for the children and you will be able to enjoy the excitement in the knowledge that they are safe and happy and that you can keep an eye on them.

#3 Receive a Visit From the Headless Horseman
This one can be achieved by downloading some spooky Halloween music onto your mp3 player and setting it to play in one of the side rooms. Set up your pumpkins and scary decorations and while you are preparing these you can lay the scene for the haunted room. Let slip that you know of a story of a headless horseman who is known to come round your neighbourhood on Halloween. He slips in univited and sits down waiting for little children to enter the room. A little later you can slip out of the room and set the music playing softly. This is sure to get them believing in a spooky Halloween and is really good fun for older children – perhaps a bit scary for younger folk though.

I hope you have enjoyed these Halloween tips and that they will help you have a fun time this Halloween without the stress of your children being out in the dark at night. With a little imaginativeness you can have a great party and one they will remember for years to come.

Have fun this Halloween!
