As the kids get older the more they are noticing special occasions such as Easter, Birthdays, Christmas and this year Halloween. My kids LOVE to dress up, infact Miss S is going through a phase of only wearing princess & fairy dresses at home.
I'm not too interested in taking them trick or treating but i think ill do some crafts with them or have a special little halloween night at home. I welcome trick or treaters though and have plenty of lollies. My old house i had NO trick or treaters, im hoping we will get some here at this house.
Next year im planning to have Miss S's 4th birthday on halloween weekend and will do a full halloween party with adults and kids dressing up. I have already started to collect things (yes a year ahead). Call me Mrs Over Organised!
I have been busy pinning ideas. I'm going to share my top 10 craft/food ideas in no particular order... you can see more HERE
