Halloween Traditions [From the Mouths of Moms]

Halloween Traditions [From the Mouths of Moms]
by: Krissy

I’m a firm believer that holiday traditions make some of the best memories for our children.  So I try to institute as many traditions around the holidays as I can.  And the creative B-Inspired Blogger moms are the perfect source for some family tradition ideas.  Here are some of their ideas for Halloween traditions…

Make Your Halloween Costumes
“I have a tradition of always making my kids’ Halloween costumes. I can’t wait until they can start helping me make them. I want them to think of Halloween as an opportunity to be creative.” Krissy from B-Inspired Mama

Give Your Candy to “The Great Pumpkin”
“We started a Halloween tradition last year where they pick out 5 pieces of candy from Trick or Treating to keep, then put the rest on the porch on Halloween night. When they wake up in the morning, they see that ‘The Great Pumpkin’ replaced that unhealthy candy with a few small toys and art supplies.” Krissy from B-Inspired Mama

Visit a Museum
“We go to the Smithsonian’s Air and Scare Museum every year. They have treats, all of the Star Wars guys and fun games for the kids.” Kristen from Busy Kids Happy Mom

Bake Some Pumpkin Seeds
“We go to the pumpkin patch the weekend before and carve and decorate our pumpkins. We then bake the seeds. This is the thing I look forward to the most.” Brittany from Love, Play, Learn

Do Candy Science Experiments
“We only did this last year, but I definitely want to do this again this year and make it a tradition. Experiments with all our leftover candy!” Laura from Play Dr. Mom
