How to keep Halloween fun instead of scary (for kids)

Halloween is a holiday full of monsters, zombies, ghosts, blood, and everything scary. But sometimes all of this spookiness is just too much for our little ones to handle. Children are so vulnerable and that last thing we want to do is to expose them to anything that may traumatize them, so instead we have created a list of kid friendly Halloween activities to focus on instead of all that scary stuff.

Games & Activities

Create some Halloween traditions that are sure to kick off the holiday with a bang! Fill the balloons with candy or confetti to add an extra special surprise. You're just a few pops away from a room full of laughter, joy, and excitement!

Kid Friendly Treats

We love the idea of turning scary monsters into a cute and playful decoration for your child's juice boxes. Just up wrap their favorite flavors with white electrical tape, add some fun googly eyes, and bring some life to your Halloween celebrations! You could easily use this method to recreate other recognizable characters like Frankenstein, just use some green tape instead and add black tape for the hair on the top. The trick is to turn any scary monster into a friendly treat for your little ones, this is a great way to include monsters to the party without any boo! For more fun ideas click here.

Arts and Crafts

Nothing screams Halloween like pumpkins! But sometimes carving these gourds can be a dangerous activity for little ones, all of those knives and slippery pumpkin guts are enough to give any parent a heart attack. So instead we have picked a few of our favorite no carve pumpkin decorating projects for the whole family to enjoy. Melting crayons are a great way to add some color, plus your kids are sure to love watching the wax drip down. Or practice your little ones scissor cutting skills by choosing various facial features out of magazines to create your own unique pumpkin face!
