HALLOWEEN PARTY IDEAS THAT ARE KID FRIENDLY TOO
Enjoying Halloween doesn't have to be all about the late night trick-or-treating, sometimes we find it's more enjoyable to celebrate Halloween a weekend or two before the actual holiday at a time that suits your kids best!
We’ve been hosting a Halloween playdate with friends for a few years now and it’s been a huge hit. It started when the kids were toddlers and the tradition easily lives on into the school aged group too! There’s a few reasons why the weekend playdate works:
Keep it small: Invites can be limited to your neighbors, a small group of families you enjoy hanging out with, or small group from school. No need to throw a huge bash or stand outside at a Trunk-or-Treat with strangers you don’t know!
Bad Weather - No Problem: This celebration isn’t weather dependent. Don’t stand out in the rain or freeze with your little ones if a brush of cold weather gets the best of your Halloween plans. Entertaining inside allows for a bit more relaxed and non-weather dependent celebration which helps avoid the bundling up of little ones!
No Scares for the Littlest Ones: Halloween can come with sensory overload for any child, especially those who are scared of costumes. Entertaining at home with friends creates a familiar environment and allows everyone to be able to take their guard down a bit.
For this year's decor help I called in my party friends Meghan over at Elva M Designs for the printables and Holly at Legally Crafty Blog for a few affordable DIY decor items and some crafty ideas for the kids to entertain themselves now that they're getting a bit older.

I have to be honest, I think this one was my favorite one yet. Mostly because I just mixed and matched a lot of decor that we already had and added a few new spider details to freshen up the theme and I was good to go! Holly's spider ice cubes and spiderweb mantel decor idea is so easy and affordable - who knew transforming a hulu hoop could be so magical! For details on to pull these DIY decor elements together check out Legally Crafty Blog.
