As we begin our Halloween/Harvest (I like to do both) celebrations, costume and party planning I was reminded recently that not everyone celebrates Halloween. Why? Some don’t celebrate Halloween because of their personal value system. Other families worry about their special needs child and how all of the Halloween noise, candy, and costumes. Some parents don’t participate because of their religious preferences. Whatever the reason, just because you don’t celebrate Halloween doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate with creativity, imaginative play and sweet treats. Why not consider these alternatives?
Try these alternatives:
- Dress to impress in your best western gear. Rope ‘em and ride them with rodeo games.
- Shiver me timbers, we found buried treasure! Think treasure hunts, pirates and party foods.
- Harvest of fall fun. Apple cider, pumpkins, squash, home made straw or floral wreaths, haystacks, pumpkin pie and smores.
- Pretty as a princess. Mani-pedi, pretty princess dresses, tea party time and all the little lords and ladies on their best behavior – well maybe!
- Make it a movie night. Popcorn and caramel apples and movies for your entertainment.
- Pizza with pizzaz. Set up a homemade pizza bar to create your own pizza with pizazz and skip going out to eat.
- Sweets for the sweet. Strawberries and other fruits dipped in chocolate, chocolate covered pretzels, caramel apples, cookies, cobblers and pies.
