Janice here with five tips to help you make Halloween extra special for your kids and earn yourself some serious “mom cred”. This post is part of a sponsored campaign, but our opinions and ideas are our own.
Our girls look forward to Halloween all year round… planning what costumes they’re going to wear and how they’re going to decorate our houses.
Susan’s girls, Julia and Sophia, are 9 and 7 and my daughter Olivia is also 7, so they are at perfect ages to help make their own costumes and decorate.
(I’m keenly aware of how important it is to make each year count, since my son is now 12 years old and “too cool” for the fun of trick-or-treating.)
I have such great memories of my own childhood Halloweens. My mom made our costumes and we spent time crafting simple decorations and hanging our creepy creations all over the house — inside and out. Now I want to ensure my kids have great Halloween memories from their early years and into their teens.
When your children are still toddling around, you don’t have to try very hard to impress them. But as they get older… especially approaching tween and teen years… sometimes you’ve gotta take a little action to earn yourself some “mom cred”.
In the video below, I share 5 tips to make sure your family has an extra memorable Halloween…
One of the tips you’ll see in the video is to have a “Night-Before Halloween” family party where you have some special treats, play games, do crafts or maybe watch a movie. (It doesn’t have to actually be the night before.)
Our kids were blown away when we surprised them with Cadbury Dairy Milk Marvellous Creations candy bars for us all to share. These new candy bars are unlike any other. They have unique flavors and hidden candy bits like “Jelly Popping Candy” and an ultra-fun bar design where no piece looks the same.
Your kids will declare these the coolest candy bars ever! Which of course makes you the coolest mom, right? 😉
We hope you like the video and that our tips help you enjoy an extra fun Halloween with your kids.
