We love dressing up for Halloween and my kids never have a problem figuring out what they want to be. Chloe is the only child that will still let ME make the costume decision. I think next year I’ll have no luck with her though, and she’ll be telling me what she wants to be. Stella made her costume this year. She came up with the Medusa costume from looking through a Martha Stewart Halloween magazine. She is learning how to sew and making costumes is a perfect learning ground. I found the “snake skin” fabric at JoAnns and with help she sewed a simple pencil skirt. Chloe’s woodland fairy costume also came from Martha Stewart’s Halloween magazine special. My favorite part of her costume is the butterfly net.
Since we live in a new neighborhood this year, before treat or tricking there was a huge neighborhood block party and I was the one in charge of all the kids’ games. I decided to do all the good ‘ol classic Halloween games like doughnut-on-a-string, cake walk, feeler boxes and mummy run. Quite the fun! Hope you had a happy Halloween!
