Yesterday, one week before Halloween, my oldest son tells me as I pick him up from school, “Mommy I might not want to be a pirate anymore for Halloween.” As I looked at him with understanding because this is an annual occurrence, I calmly asked what he would like to be…His answer was that he’s not sure yet and he will let me know.

Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year. What’s not to love: fun costumes, perfect weather, friends, family, late bedtimes, and candy. All that candy can be overwhelming. You want to enjoy the holiday, have fun and be carefree, but you are also dreading the aftermath – the “My child is up entirely too late, and now they want to eat all this candy, and I’ve got to tell them no… right?”
We recently spoke with Susan Peirce Thompson, Ph.D, a psychology professor, a brain and cognitive scientist, and an expert in the psychology of eating. According to Susan, telling them no isn’t always the right answer. At least, not on Halloween night.
Who says moms can’t rock some awesome costume makeup along with her kids on Halloween? Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration. This year we’ve got you covered with 4 looks to try this Halloween along with step-by-step tutorials on how to replicate them.
Halloween is a wonderful day for both kids and parents alike. Kids enjoy nothing more than dressing up as their favorite characters, walking around the neighborhood with friends, and getting treats. As parents, we love to see our children’s eyes light up as they transform into their latest obsession and we stand proudly on the sidewalk as they walk up to each door exclaiming, “Trick or Treat!” We have fond memories of doing the same things as a kid, and it’s a joy to watch our children follow in the same traditions.
But if you are a parent of a child with allergies, you often become the villain to their superhero inspired costume. You have to carefully inspect all packaging to be sure the contents don’t include any harmful allergens, reading ingredient lists and “processed in facilities” lists before they can dig into their loot, throwing away delicious contraband that might make them sick. Luckily, with the growing knowledge of allergies and sensory issues, there are now more and more options to ensure that there are treats out there for everyone to enjoy.
With Halloween right around the corner, dinner ideas might be the last thing on your mind. With last minute costume alterations, stocking up on treats to hand out to trick-or-treaters, planning snacks for classroom events and purchasing decorations for your own party, you probably haven’t even thought about what you’re going to serve for dinner on Halloween night.
Halloween is just around the corner and there are dozens of adorable options for dressing the crew [and yourself] for the celebration. Planning ahead will help you be prepared for any changes that might come up with your plans or the weather leading into the holiday. For store bought costumes, order online at least 3 weeks in advance or visit your local costume shop early in the month to ensure the best selection.
If you want to DIY a costume, make sure to plan plenty of time to ensure that you aren’t up at midnight on October 30th with a hot glue gun and a stack of felt.
We’ve collected a handful of our favorite costume ideas to give you some inspiration. Make sure to leave us a note in the comments about some of your favorite characters to dress up as!
The holiday season is upon us. A time of seeing family near and far, enjoying holiday get-togethers, feasting on delicious foods, and collapsing into exhaustion over holiday stress. Wait! That last one wasn’t right. That’s not how the holidays are supposed to be!
Allergies are everywhere… and we don’t mean the stuffy nose, watery eyes, sneezing, seasonal allergies that drive most of us crazy. No, we’re talking about the deadly, asphyxiating, hive-inducing food allergies that have become a fast growing public health concern among children in the U.S. With Halloween around the corner, loads of candy are bought and randomly passed out to our little monsters, but food allergies, specifically related to peanuts and tree-nuts, lurk among even the cutest of gremlins. How can we ensure that fun will be had by all, but still keep every child safe?
Getting to dress your kids in ridiculous, over-the-top costumes for Halloween is one of the many perks of parenthood. And when you have one kid, you can pretty much choose any Halloween costume you want — and it’s totally adorable.
But once you have two kids (or three, or four… or more!), the costume situation gets a little trickier. What if you want to coordinate outfits? What are some fun and unique ideas for multiple kids? And how do you pull them off without breaking the bank?
If you’re looking for inspiration, you’ve come to the right place! Here are 100+ creative costume ideas for your crew — mom and dad included!
