Now that Halloween is just a few days away, here are some quick and frugal tips to make your Halloween even more enjoyable and less expensive.
- Host a costume swap party. You know there are some costumes that your kids outgrow so why not trade it in for a new “used” one. Hosting a costume swap party will not only save you money but it will also give an excuse to have a party with your friends.
- Make sure to stock up on reflective tape. Send your cute little trick treaters off with reflective tape attached to their costumes and shoes.
- Paint an old frame black and hang spider webbing from the side. This will be a fun photo opp for your visitors. When they ring your doorbell, have them hold the frame near their face for a quick pic.
- Make deviled eggs and put a sliced green olive in the middle for eyes.
- Pick up some white pumpkins and with sharpies draw ghost faces on them. This is something that you can do with preschool as well as school age children. While you drawing faces, you might also want to draw faces on cups as well. Then you will be ready for any visitor that may stop by.
- If you are hosting a pre-Halloween party, pass out glow sticks or necklaces as party favors for children to use when they are out collecting their treats.
- If you plan on going hunting for treats plan a route to take and stick to it. Never go into an unknown neighbor.
- The last tip I can give you is to have a backup plan just in case it is pouring down rain. Check to see if there are other locations that may host trick or treating inside. Because let’s face it, it never hurts to have a backup plan.
So these are my tips, do have different tips? Share and let’s all be safe this Halloween season.
