Halloween can be as spooky or family friendly as you make it. A holiday full of costumes, decorations and candy brings out the kid in everyone, no matter what age. This Halloween could be a fun chance to include your aging loved one and help them feel young at heart again. While it may be too chilly to go trick-or-treating, handing out candy and spending time with family around the house as the cute, costumed kids come by can be a lot of fun. Get into the theme of the night and encourage your loved one to join you with these family friendly Halloween ideas:
Don’t forget the costumes and décor! Orange and black crepe paper, little gourds and pumpkins, and festive napkins or candles can build a great holiday atmosphere… and decorating your house for the festivities is a fun activity you can do with your whole family.
Running low on easy costume ideas? Throw on a monochromatic outfit and add a homemade Crayola logo to go as a crayon! Or help your loved one go as a favorite celebrity from their own generation with a suit and fedora. When in doubt, a sweat-suit can be an “athlete” or a sheet can be a ghost in the blink of an eye.
Just remember, the most important thing is to have fun and let your loved one know how glad you are to be celebrating this holiday season with them.
