Halloween Fun

Halloween, despite religious arguments, can be a very fun time for children. One of the most important keys to be able to have the most fun is for your child to be as safe as possible. Below are some important tips on keeping your child safe if they will be trick-or-treating, as well as some fun ideas that can be used as a replacement for trick-or-treating:

Keeping Safe—

• Watch out for tricks—Halloween is a night that is known for pranks, and often with older kids, such as teenagers, this can mean picking on younger kids and possibly stealing their candy, etc. To avoid your child possibly having to deal with kids like this, you should go with them to houses, or if they are old enough, make sure that they are with a very large group of kids.

• Only let them go to the houses of people you know—a long time ago, kids could go to as many houses as they wanted to, in their neighborhood or not, in their town or not, it didn’t matter. The candy would be safe and good, the kids would have a blast, and everything would be fine. It isn’t this way anymore, though. Instead of this carefree night of trick-or-treating, you have to look at every piece of candy your child brings in before they can eat it. You shouldn’t allow your child to have any candy or food that isn’t wrapped, and you shouldn’t allow them any that look as if the wrapping has been tampered with.

• Make them visible—Whether you will be walking with your child or not, it is important for cars to be able to see them in case they are walking near a road. If possible, have your child wear a light-colored costume (although, being Halloween, many kids like to wear dark, mean-looking costumes, so this may prove difficult). Have your child carry a light (many can be found in almost any store that carry the Halloween theme, such as pumpkins) and a light stick.


• Carnivals—There are many people who prefer to not take their child trick-or-treating, but sometimes it is hard to figure out an alternative that is equally as fun for the child. Carnivals are an excellent option, and some churches have alternatives that are referred to more as Fall Carnivals than Halloween, and these usually have games with prizes, and more. Some schools have carnivals such as these, as well.

• Hay Rides—One good way to enjoy Halloween without having to go door to door having your child take candy from strangers is to have a hay ride. This ride could be haunted or not, but either way it is a great way to have Halloween fun.

• Haunted Houses—If your child is old enough and doesn’t scare too easily, you can take them to haunted houses for Hallo ween fun. This is an excellent way to feel scared and get to dress up in costume without having to do the trick-or-treat thing.

• Parties—Allowing your child to have a Halloween party can be a great alternative to trick-or-treating. Have it late enough that the guests will have time to do so if they want to before arriving, but your child will be busy setting everything up for the party. Having games and even your own haunted house can be a lot of fun for your child and all his dressed-up friends.
