Halloween Safety Reminders

Halloween Safety RemindersTonight’s the big, fun-filled night! We want to make sure you and your gang of ghosts and goblins stay safe on Halloween night. You’re probably familiar with most of these Halloween safety reminders but it’s always good to have a refresher. Keep these Halloween safety tips in mind as you prepare for your Halloween celebration and head out on the trick-or-treat trail:

Costume Safety

You’ve probably got your costume set for tonight but as you’re dressing yourself and your kids, check for potential hazards such as oversized costumes that may cause someone to trip or costumes with long pieces that could get snagged. Face paint is a better choice than masks to prevent obstructed views. Try to incorporate reflective tape or a glow stick into your family’s costumes so you’ll stand out to drivers.

Street Safety

Stick with your kids as you hit the neighborhood for trick-or-treating. Make a rule about how closely to you your kids should remain. Stay on sidewalks when possible, always look both ways and hold hands while crossing streets, and use crosswalks when they are available. This is a good time to teach your children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street. If you are carrying a baby, make sure they are secure in your arms throughout the night – this is a great time for baby wearing! Use reflective tape or twinkle lights on strollers to be extra visible to drivers.

If you are driving, especially during peak trick-or-treat hours of 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., use extra caution by driving slowly, ensuring your lights are on, putting down your mobile phone and stopping for all pedestrians.

Tricky People Safety

Talk to your kids about tricky people before going out on Halloween night. Make sure your kids know to tell you right away if they encounter a tricky person and to scream for help if they feel they are in danger. Although it is a night notorious for “tricks” and scary things, listen to your kids and be vigilant of their fears.

Candy Safety

Make a rule that your kids should not eat any candy before you’ve checked it. The best way to check candy is in a well-lit room when you return home. Never allow your child to eat baked goods or opened foods from strangers. Watch out for choking hazards for young children.

Also, set a plan for how much candy your child can eat on Halloween night and then save the rest for future treats. You can also encourage your kids to share candy with the troops or swap candy with the “switch witch” for a non-food item such as books, toys or crafts.

Fire Safety

Consider using an electronic light to illuminate your pumpkin rather than a candle. If you do use a candle, make sure it is in a steady place and away from flammable objects. Ensure your kids stay away from fire hazards at homes where you are trick-or-treating too.

Have a wonderful night and be sure to follow our Halloween safety reminders for a fabulous holiday!

Thanksgiving Crafts and Activities

Get ready for turkey and stuffing! It’s that time of year again, and we are getting our kitchens ready for Thanksgiving dinner. While you might have your hands full with preparing a meal for the whole family you might want to think about activities to keep the kids busy and their fingers out of the mashed potatoes!

Check out these great Thanksgiving Crafts and Activities for both the kids and the whole family:

Pumpkin Carving: Halloween might be over, but that doesn’t mean we have to let all those pumpkins go to waste! While kids have so much fun carving pumpkins before trick-or-treating, why not do it again for Thanksgiving? This is such a great craft to keep the kids busy while you’re preparing dinner! Set up a station either in the house, in the garage, or outside. Make sure to lay down plenty of newspaper and have enough utensils for everyone. Once the carving is finished you can invite the whole family outside and light up their creations!

Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt: This is a great activity for the kids to do outside on Thanksgiving! Tiny pumpkins will work perfectly for this, or you can have the kids do some arts and crafts and make their own items for the scavenger hunt. The parents can set them up all around the yard and then the kids can find them!

Indian Corn Crafts: Indian Corn is definitely a fall accessory. The cob is covered with beautiful colors that instantly remind us of autumn. This Thanksgiving get the kids together and try crafts with the corn! Lay out some paint and paper and have the kids’ role the corn into the paint and make creative stamp and roll art! If this idea is too messy try using just the paint and the eraser end of a pencil to make the effect of the corn on the paper.

 Turkey Trot: Turkey Trots are becoming more popular. Look them up in your area and take the family along!

 Capture the Flag: This can be a game that includes everyone! Pick teams and set up your flags. The winners get an extra slice of pumpkin pie at dinner!

 Pumpkin Prints: This is another awesome craft you can use your pumpkins for. Cut up pieces of pumpkins and use the chunks to make stamps. You will need to help the younger ones because using a knife can be dangerous, but once they have their stamps they can make a colorful creation!

 Football: Who said football is just for boys? This Thanksgiving, rally up the family for some good old fashion touch football before dinner!

 Board Games: Board games are a great way to bring the whole family together to do something fun. Set up the living room with a bunch of board games for the kids to play. When you’re finished with the meal you can join them!

 Leaf Crafts: While there are a few leaves still in the trees find a few of your favorites to make crafts with. The kids can do leaf rubbings, make reefs, or even a center piece for Thanksgiving Dinner.

 Thank You Cards: It’s always important to remember what Thanksgiving is all about. It’s about giving thanks and remembering to cherish one another. This is something the whole family can do together. Write thank you cards to each other explaining what you are thankful for.

How to Throw a Halloween Party

While you may have passed down the trick-or-treating to your children it doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time this Halloween! If you’re planning a Halloween block party this year that’s fun for everyone checkout these helpful tips on how to get ready for the big event:

 

Invitations: Whether you send out a Facebook invite or you make your own invitations it’s important to have something to let everyone know what’s going on. Don’t forget to put the date, the location, when the party starts and stops, and what kind of party it is. It’s important to keep in mind not everyone can make it on Halloween because they may be taking the kids out for trick-or-treating. Try planning your party the weekend before or after Halloween so all your guests are more likely available. Don’t forget to say on the invitation it is costume mandatory! It’s Halloween after all.

 

Decorations: Decorations are always fun at a Halloween party. Sometimes they can make or break the mood. Whether your party is being hosted at your house or another location, make sure to have the appropriate decorations. This is your party so have fun and decorate the way you want to, but make sure to keep the children in mind. Decorating for Halloween can be fun, but if you plan to get really gory you could scare the kids. Instead try decorating with simple props such as pumpkins, skeletons, cobwebs, etc. Also, your lighting and sound effects are definitely something to consider. Ask one of your neighbors if you can borrow their strobe light to set up in the front yard to make a spooky entrance. A fog machine is also something that will be a hit at the party. Set it up outside or even in the basement to be included in the fun dance party later on!

Tip: If you choose to have the location set somewhere else besides your home, make sure you have plenty of time to set everything up. Give yourself more than 24-48 hours to have everything ready for the big party.

 

Music: You can’t have a Halloween party without some spooky music! The hit Monster Mash is totally a must, but if you want to try something a little different put on a spooky movie to fill the background while people are hanging around. Pick a movie like the Headless Horseman or A Nightmare Before Christmas to keep it kid friendly.

 

Snacks: Pizza is great, but if you’re trying to spruce things up a bit, try looking at Pinterest for some Halloween snack ideas. You’ll find anything from puking pumpkins to amazing finger snacks. People will go crazy over anything that is a little different from the norm. Plus the kids will find your spider lady fingers really fun and delicious!

Tip: If you’re on a budget it’s okay to put on the invitation to bring a side to pass around.

 

Games: Do you have any special games in mind? Depending on the weather you can do a lot of things both inside and outside. These are our favorite outside games: pumpkin corn hole, pumpkin carving, and ghost in the graveyard. Here are our favorite inside games: murder mystery, Pictionary, charades, diving for apples, and best costume reveal!

 

The biggest thing to remember is to have fun! It’s your party so whatever you decide goes. Make sure everyone gets involved with the games, both the kids and the adults, so everyone can have a good time laughing and playing around!

 

 

DIY Family Halloween Costumes

DIY Family Halloween CostumesOrganizing Halloween costumes for yourself and toddlers can be a little hectic. Not to mention the cost of some costumes can be little absurd. If you’d rather do something a little more fun, creative, and cost effective we have a few ideas for you! These days movies and television stars are plastered everywhere from back to school folders, notebooks, and your child’s book bags to clothing and even sometimes the noodles of Kraft Mac n Cheese. It’s easy to find a popular kid’s show to get some inspiration for this year’s Halloween.

Today we are sharing 8 DIY popular ideas for your family’s Halloween costumes:

Minions from Despicable Me: This has been such a popular idea this year! Everything from dressing up your dog to your babies has been all over the web and we are loving it! To master this look all you need are some boxes and paint. Paint up your boxes to create your minions and then all you’ll need are black pants to complete this awesome Halloween look!

The Walking Dead: Dress the whole family up as your favorite Walking Dead characters! This can either be as zombies or as one of the main characters such as Rick or Carl. Either one can be assembled with old clothes and fake blood!

Frozen: Right now it’s every little girl’s dream to be Princess Anna or Queen Elsa. Get the whole family on board and dress up like the whole crew of Frozen. If you have a little boy they can join too as either Kistoff or Olaf! There are lots of ways to make these outfits with fabric and other materials. Checkout tutorials on YouTube!

Your Favorite Board Game: Whether your family is into Clue, Monopoly, or another board game, you can create awesome Halloween costumes to depict your family’s favorite games! Just like the minions idea, all you’ll need is some cardboard and paint. This is a great way for the whole family to get involved and create their own creative board game costume!

Star Wars: With the new movie and video game about to release it’s no wonder this idea is so popular for Halloween! For R2-D2 you can create your costume out of a box, and if you have a little girl who wants to dress up as Princess Leah a white robe will do the trick.

Goosebumps: Goosebumps is another series that will be expecting a new movie! With all the different monsters and characters it might be a little difficult picking your inspiration, but creating your outfit will be a lot of fun!

The Avengers: Who doesn’t want to be a superhero? This year make your own Avengers’ costumes with things lying around your home.

Lego Movie: The Lego Movie is another 2015 favorite! A large amount of cardboard will be needed!

Halloween Party Ideas

Halloween Party Ideas Does your child have an October birthday? With ghostly ghouls and creepy crawlies, a traditional Halloween party can be frightening for certain kids, especially with games that include a haunted basement or a backyard zombie hunt.

Instead of focusing on a spooky Halloween theme, plan a kid-friendly party! With fun, easy participation games and delicious treats, your guests will leave with smiles and goody bags instead of wide eyes and Halloween frights!

Halloween Party Games

Costume Contest

Encourage guests to let their imaginations shine in their costumes with the promise of a contest and plenty of exciting prizes! Wait till the end of the evening to line up the kids and give out prizes. But, instead of focusing on a first, second, and third place, plan ahead and create a prize for each child such as: funniest costume, prettiest costume, more creative costume, etc. Let everyone go home with a fun prize, whether they include goody bags with their title inside or little trophies you can purchase online!

Mummy Wrap

Have each child partner up with another and allow them to choose who gets to be the mummy! The other will be given a roll of toilet paper to wrap their partner in; have everyone line up and see who can use up all of their toilet paper first! This can be a dizzying game so make sure to stand by and keep watch!

Bobbing for Apples

This October classic is a necessity for any Halloween party, whether it be planned for kids or adults! Fill up a few tubs full of water and apples and time your guests for two minutes! See how many apples they can pull out with their teeth! Make sure to keep towels at the ready: you’ll need them!

**With extra time, consider letting each child pick out one of the apples they pulled to create a caramel apple treat!

Halloween Crafts & Treats

Caramel Apple Craft

Have each child choose one of the apples they bobbed for earlier in the day to create a treat all their own!

Ingredients:

Granny Smith Apples

Wooden apple sticks (can be found at most craft stores)

Caramel

Toppings, such as M&M’s, Sprinkles and Reese’s Pieces

Wax paper

Cookie Sheet

Directions:

Wash each child’s apple before allowing them to decorate! Microwave the caramel in a large, microwave-safe bowl in short intervals (stirring in between) until it is melted and soft. While the caramel is melting, assist your guests with inserting the wooden sticks into their apples. Next, allow each child to dip their apple in the caramel until it is well-coated and then encourage them to press as many toppings on as they can fit! The caramel will harden quickly so once the toppings are on, place each apple on a parchment lined baking sheet to harden. (Always check with parents about food allergies before creating a caramel apple station.)

Paper Plate Spiders

Do you have an ever growing pile of paper plates? Consider using them for a fun Halloween craft that the kids can take and hang at home!

Supplies:

Children’s activity paint

2 paper plates per child (preferably small sized)

Pipe cleaners to match the colors of paint (4 per child)

Different sizes of googly eyes

Elmer’s glue

Hole Punch

Children’s scissors

String, yarn or ribbon

Stapler

Paint brushes

Directions:

Have the kids paint the bottoms of their two paper plates completely and allow them time to dry. Once dry, have them safely cut their pipe cleaners in half to make eight. (Make sure to always supervise while using scissors.) Next, have them bend down all of their pipe cleaners to create spidery legs! Help to staple each pipe cleaner half to the inside of their paper plate, 4 on each side. Then staple the plates together on the top and bottom to hold the spider body together. From there, have each child glue googly eyes all over the front, as many as they like! If you’re looking to include some interactive learning, explain that most spiders have eight eyes and eight legs. Finally, punch a hole at the top and attach about a 12 inch string for them to hang up at home!

Goody Bags:

What’s a Halloween party without candy? Make sure to end the festivities by sending all of your guests home with goody bags full of sweets and treats!

What you’ll need:

Any candy you like!

Directions: Whether you would like to purchase premade goody bags or create your own, make sure to write each child’s name on their specific bag. Always check with parents about food allergies and stock each goody bag accordingly.

Don’t scare your guests away with spooky games and creepy treats! Plan ahead and entertain your young guests with the kid-friendly games and crafts you know they’ll love!

Directions:

Place the Oreos in a zip lock bag and, pressing out the air, seal it tightly. Using a rolling pin, finely smash Oreos. Next, open up the pudding cups and sprinkle an even amount of the crushed Oreos on top. Place a Peep ghost and candy pumpkin in each cup to top it off.

 

 

3. Oreo Eyeballs

If you’re trying to be extra clever this Halloween, create some Oreo Eyeballs for your guests! They require an imaginative eye but what happens if some don’t turn out perfect? Looks like you’re going to have to eat the evidence!

 

Ingredients:

Oreo Cookies

Blue & green gel icing

Red food coloring

A small paintbrush

Brown M&Ms

 

Directions:

Remove half of the Oreo cookie and discard (eat!) Keep the side that holds the frosting. Add a decent sized glob of either blue or green icing in the middle of the frosting – alternate the colors to have an even amount of each! Place 1 M&M in the center of the icing. Lastly, put a small drop of red food coloring in a bowl or plate. Using the paintbrush, paint red vein on the white frosting, around the colored gel.

 

4. Frozen Banana Ghosts

Boo – nana! These banana ghosts are a dream come true when looking for a healthy treat the kids actually want to eat! Who knew Halloween treats could be something other than candy?!

 

Ingredients: (Makes 4 Ghosts)

1 Banana

4 Popsicle Sticks

8 mini chocolate chips

1 cup of white chocolate

 

Directions:

Cutting lengthwise, slice the banana in half from end to end. Next, cut slices in half to make 4 quarters. Insert Popsicle sticks into the bottom of each piece and freeze on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Once banana pieces are frozen, fill a mug or small bowl with the white chocolate and microwave chocolate in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until it is melted and soft. Next, working one at a time, dip the bananas into the white chocolate and reset them on the cookie sheet and wax paper. Working quickly, place the chocolate chips into the bananas as eyes before the chocolate hardens. Return to the freezer until they are hardened. Finally – enjoy a delicious and healthy Halloween treat!

 

Frightfully delightful, these Halloween treats are sure to cast a spell on your guests! Quick, easy, and adorably spooky, they will be the talk of the party! Who ever said hosting was a chore? With recipes like these, it’ll be a treat!
