Celebrating your childs first Halloween
It’s almost that time, trick or treating time! I can’t believe that my last baby will be having his first Halloween. Kyler’s older brother Korey helped pick out his costume. It was between Elmo and Cookie Monster and the monster won! To get him use to costumes and ‘scary’ decorations we have taken Kyler to Halloween shops and shown him daddy’s decorations from the trail.
Another way we like to connect him to Halloween is through some of his favorite shows he likes to watch with his big brother, like Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Through our Netflix account we can watch Jake’s Tricks, Treats and Treasure! episode and introduce Halloween and trick or treating as not being too scary, but rather fun to celebrate with friends.
We also like to include the kids in as many trick or treating activities locally as we can. From our town’s beggars night to museum trick or treating, they are able to interact with all sorts of costumes and props as well as getting a few sweets and toys to enjoy later. Snapping many photos through these adventures allows us to really remember the first trick or treating and the joy they had.
Other simple ways you can celebrate your child’s Halloween:
- Paint their feet with white paint and place on a piece of paper, add two black dots for eyes and you have ghosts!
- Decorate a pumpkin with their hand prints
- Trace their hand on a piece of black construction paper, add two wings and you have a bat!
