Happy Autumn everyone! Everyone is gearing up for Halloween and so we have a few tips for celebrating this season safely!
Celebrate with a spooky movie night and have your kids and you dress as your favorite characters!
Decorating pumpkins! This is one Halloween tradition that's as safe and fun as ever. As always, just be careful to avoid pumpkin carving injuries. Children can draw a face with markers. Then parents can do the cutting. When the carving is done, consider putting a battery-operated light rather than an open-flame candle inside. Roast the seeds from the pumpkin for a healthy snack!
Make some fun Halloween-themed treats as a family! Decorate a pizza with toppings in the shape of a jack-o'-lantern for example!
Look for outdoor community events focused on safe ways to have fun. These may include programs offered by a park district, arboretum, zoo or other outdoor venues in your area.
Happy Halloween everyone! Let's make this a safe and fun holiday for our kiddos!
