Halloween Cheat Sheet

When it comes to the holidays, Halloween seems to incite the most sense of creativity and spirit from our children - largely because the end result is what they crave so often: candy! This Halloween, create new incentives and traditions, and get into the spooky fun with your kids.

Create a Trail

Create a plan of where you would like to trick-or-treat and stick to it. This will make it easy for you to travel with kids, but also safer. Give all adults that are joining you a copy of the trail to follow along as well. You can make it fun by building a treasure hunt that will correspond to your stops. Create some t-shirts for team leaders (adults) and come up with cool team names: "The Toddling Terrors" or "The Chocolate Boys". Just think of creating your own "The Hunt for the Ultimate Candy (or Sweet Healthy Snack Treat) Collection."

Grab Some Friends

-or-treating with friends. There is strength and safety in numbers as long as they are all properly supervised, and there is an opportunity for sweet-swapping and sharing. Is your child allergic to nuts? Trade off her Snickers bars for the Twizzler packs, etc. Also, just think of all the memories and pictures that you'll have later on.

Get out the construction paper.

(or Silly) Movies

Before the big day, celebrate with a countdown of scary movies. Classics like How the Grinch Stole Christmas and even The Nightmare Before Christmas are perfect for little ones. Save Carrie and Nightmare on Elm Street for the older crowd.

There are many Halloween-related crafts to occupy little (and big) hands. With some black construction paper, for example, kids can trace out black spiders and then use cotton balls (make sure to stretch them out) to add to webby background. You can also cut up pieces of orange construction paper for younger children and ask them to assemble a pumpkin.

Join with family and friends to make apple cider.

p> Day Of The Dead

Extend Halloween a little longer and enjoy a "Day of the Dead" celebration November 1st and November 2nd.Teach your children about this Latin American tradition with some research, storybooks and art. It's a time for a "La Llorona" spook, do not you think?

Kids should always be with an adult when trick-or-treating, never open unwrapped candy, and most importantly, remind them not to talk to strangers.

Whatever your method of celebration, keep in mind that Halloween offers another opportunity to encourage our children's creativity, create new traditions with your family, What will you do this Halloween?
