When the month of September nears its end, both adults and kids have one certain thing in their mind: Halloween is close approaching! As one of the most entertaining events that children and adults enjoy alike, it is natural for the month of October to be inevitably associated with the age-old tradition. However, since the event is held nearly, there may be certain parents who are out of ideas of what to do this time around. Well, fear not – below are some of the main ways to celebrate Halloween with your kids!
The traditional Halloween party – the most natural thing to do on the 30th of October is to naturally throw children’s parties. The children and adults all come dressed up as supernatural and fantastical creatures, and the party is filled with all the traditional activities such as bobbing the apple, dressing up the mummy, and racing and relay activities. Since this is the traditional way to celebrate the holiday, you might find that a number of parents are throwing parties – and since this can get repetitive, you might naturally want to go with something else other than the usual party, however.

Pumpkin carving party – what if instead of the traditional kids parties, you go with a party that will also get you decorations for the actual event? Indeed, by hosting a pumpkin-carving party, you can give the children a chance at something they usually do not do, whilst also effortlessly getting your house decorations made. There is also the advantage of being able to host this party earlier than the actual date, so you won’t have to worry about clashing dates. At the pumpkin-carving party, the main event is naturally carving the pumpkins, but you can also let the children bake cakes and other goodies from the pulp they scoop out!
Mock trick or treating – another event that you can actually host before Halloween is the one where you teach the smaller children how to go about trick or treating on the last day of October. Since the smaller children won’t know how to properly go about it, this is the ideal chance to teach them – and to get the older kids to help you teach them! You can make this a neighbourhood event by getting a neighbourhood in on the event (and therefore making it more safe for the smaller tots), with the older kids waiting at the doors with candy. Make sure to first teach everybody the proper manners and how to converse, however – after all, this is to teach the proper way to ‘trick or treat’!
