Halloween Decor and More for Your Child

by MBC

These are some fun suggestions on decorating as well as other cool Halloween ambiance.

Kids really get into setting the Halloween atmosphere. Help them to enjoy it by decorating their own bedrooms for this holiday. Have some fun with it. Think ghosts, goblins, skulls, bats, spiders, witches and anything creepy or scary.

When I was a child it was much safer to go Trick-or-Treating. Now days it's perhaps wiser to keep the kids at home with you or go to some larger organized party. But children can still look forward to the holiday if you make it a fun time to do some special unique decorations in their bedroom. If you can't afford too many things right now think about getting one special thing each year for a while. Or encourage the children to make their own decorations.

If you are a divorced father who will get the kids this year, be sure to prepare their rooms for this special time of year. They will appreciate your efforts.

Decorate their Walls or Doors with their Favorite Movie Poster

Brighten Up Their Walls with Their Heros

This is an easy way to decorate the kids room for the occasion.  Are you a grandparent who wants to have a special time with the grandkids? What was their favorite movie or movies?  Do they love the minions? Minion costumes are very easy to make yourself and are going to be quite popular this year. Often kids also want to wear a costume of a character from their favorite movie as well. You can't go wrong with Disney themes. Here are some suggestions

Who Are You Decorating For?

Think of Exciting Items They Can Use in Their Room

Do they have a spooky lamp? Bedspreads, pillows and throw blankets are an easy way to decorate. Don't forget the bathroom (shower curtains, towels, bath sets).  Look for interesting or scary door covers. Some kids still use a nightlight (see below). Put on your do-it-yourself hat and have some creative fun. Let the kids express themselves. Create a center piece for the dining room and let them keep it in their room if they want to.  Candles are a fun and simple additional touch.

Give them some art supplies: glitter, poster board, paints and markers and let them make whatever their hearts desire. Think of ravens, crows and spiders for the boys and princesses and frills for the girls.

How to Decorate a Kids Room

Keep the Kids Safe by Throwing a Gathering or Party

Trick or Treating has changed from the days when the kids went out in the neighborhood door to door.  Kids these days have probably never used the phrase "trick or treat".  So you will need to provide candy and party activities such as games like "pin the nose on the pumpkin" (a variation on pin the tail on the donkey) or the spider ring toss game, or ring toss on the witches hat, or the kiss the frog party game, dunking for apples.

It's a good idea to offer a prize for whoever wins each game for example small dolls, whistles, balloons, masks, keychains, squeeze balls, a magnifying glass or puzzles.

Many children like to have sleep overs on Halloween.  Be ready for not much sleep though! Have on-hand some short DVD movies like Scary Godmother, Little Bear, Hocus Pocus, Witches or Curious George. Be sure that they aren't too scary or some kids could end up with nightmares or crying and going home early.

These things will give you a start on the event. You'll need invitations and snacks, of course.
