Check out these creative and cute costumes:

Olympic Runner:

In spirit of the 2012 Olympics, why not remember it by dressing your child as a runner! This costume is great to invest in because many of the materials that will create it can be repurposed such as the tennis shoes and sweatbands.

Fierce Tiger:

 

Kids love transforming into their favorite jungle animals. Better yet, kids can even help create this costume by helping to glue and cut out the shapes for the stripes. Here are the instructions!

 

Chicken Little:

 

Cluck, cluck, chicken! The chicken costume will keep infants and toddlers very warm just in case it is chilly on Halloween! Click here to find out how to make this costume.

 

Cuddly Cowboy:

Wild Kitty:

 

Do not let this furry kitty fool you, she is dangerous ;). This costume requires an animal print vest, hoodie, ears, tail, and maybe some eyeliner or other method to create whiskers.

 

Flower Pot Full of Posy:

 

Take a trip to the craft store to gather fake flowers and a plastic pot to create this flourishing posy.

Spooky Treats for Halloween

Decorating for Halloween is a lot of fun and an opportunity for you and your children to get creative. However, there are other ways to express creativity through making spooky treats during this ghoulish time of year.

Here are some spooktacular treats from Parents.com to create with your little ones:

Apple Monsters:

What a sweet surprise! This snack includes a fruit which will make mom happy and then the delicious candy that will make kids ecstatic. Let you imagination run wild when creating these delectable monsters.

Halloween Veggies:

Now that we have had our fix of sweets, let’s eat some veggies! Make your vegetables look appealing by carving out a pumpkin and putting some type of dipping sauce to go with your veggies. Adults and children alike will not be able to resist this!

Ghostly Hot Chocolate

Finally, the easiest treat of them all is making hot cocoa! Make a ghost out of whip cream and use chocolate chips or Junior Mints to create a face.

What Halloween treats are you creating for this spookiest holiday of the year?

Ghoulish Fun for Halloween 2012

Halloween is less than two weeks away! As the leaves continue to drop and change color and carved pumpkins fill the neighborhood, there are plenty of activities to do with your kids during this festive and spooky time of year. FamilyEducation.com had some great ideas for Halloween to get your children excited about this holiday!

Leading up to Halloween, you can of course carve a pumpkin but you can also help your children design their own trick or treat bags by finding a canvas tote bag from a local craft store and letting your child’s imagination run wild with paint and markers and whatever else they can find!

 

To contribute to the decorations outside, children can design empty flowerpots by painting them to look like creepy creatures. It might even be easier than attempting to carve a pumpkin!

Then after the Halloween and the trick or treating is complete, your children will need somewhere to put their candy! Be prepared and make a Halloween treat bowl. Take any kind of bowl you have and make it black, orange, and white with ghouls, pumpkins, or whatever else you and your kids can think of!

What crafts are you doing with your children to get ready for this spooky time of year?
