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.
