We don’t have any kids yet, so I’ve never really been that into halloween. The halloween that people our age celebrate usually involves copious amounts of alcohol, costumes that are intended to cover just enough to not be called a slut, and forgetting what you did for the second half of the night. Needless to say – it’s something I’m not too interested in.
BUT! I can imagine all the fun halloween would be if you had a young child around to celebrate with – be it our own, your sibling’s or the neighbor’s. There are so many fun foods to make, so many crafts to do, so many pumpkins to carve. And the costumes! Don’t even get me started on the costumes. As if kids aren’t cute enough, when they put on little outfits that turn them into ladybugs or dinosaurs or puppies they get even that much cuter. My heart just melts.
So, to satisfy my child-less life (no really – it’s childless. I have a total of zero young kids I hang around ever. It is very sad.) I am providing you with a roundup of recipes and crafts for you to do with your kids! Please send me pictures. All I have is a puppy, and she doesn’t like to be dressed up very much. Here goes!
These worms in dirt are a classic.
