Halloween Fun for Families: Here Are 3 Activities to Encourage Bonding With Your Little Goblins!

Use Halloween to bond with your child. Start with this easy project that will add something extra to your treats!

Fortune Tellers

  • Copy the fortunes below or get kids to create their own.
  • Cut them into strips and attach them to granola bars, boxes of raisins or any treat.
  • You could also decorate a jar and pull them out, one by one.
  • Kids can take them to school parties or hand them out the night of trick or treat.

Here are some fortune examples:

“Before midnight, you will eat a sand-witch."

“You will adopt three baby skunks."

"Witch witch is witch?”

“Don't goblin your candy!”

DIY Costumes

Get kids involved in making their own costumes. Here's how to start:

  • Have them draw a picture of who they would like to be.
  • Figure out what you have on hand to make it a reality. For instance, a cardboard box (with a hole on top for the head) can become a TV or computer. Cover with paper or foil, then have the kids enlarge a favorite photo or draw a picture for the screen.

Field Trips

Set aside a few hours for a trip to a:

  • pumpkin patch
  • corn maze
  • haunted house

Don’t forget to take photos! Boo!
