Halloween Blog Post 2020

There is nothing quite like Halloween, that one day a year that everyone loves to dress up in a scary costume, families carve their pumpkins and prepare to go trick-or-treating.

Halloween has become a popular event with children across the country. Children love creating their costume many weeks in advance and decorating their homes in scary Halloween decorations. I know my children do!

Kidsoft has 5 Quick and Easy Halloween craft ideas; they say anyone can make, probably even me. These activities are the perfect way to get spooky!

This will keep the children busy and engaged and feel a sense of accomplishment. It can often be tempting and much quicker to jump in and help children complete an activity.
