If your family loves the fall traditions of hayrides, apple picking, and pumpkin-flavored everything, it’s natural to assume they’ll love celebrating Halloween too, but some kiddos are nervous about a parade of strangers in scary costumes — and that’s really reasonable. Offer up some scare-free traditions this year, with all the party supplies you’ll need for a family-friendly get-together that is considerate of even the littlest guests.
Make the kiddos work for their treats with this fun spider pinata. Fill it with candies, or mix and match with a grab bag of Halloween goodies. It’s a fun activity to add to any kid-friendly party, especially for children whose birthdays fall on or close to Halloween.
The Halloween Host can’t be slacking in the costume department, and a not too scary costume, like a pirate, works well as a standalone outfit, as part of a couple’s costume for adult parties, or for a matching theme for the whole family to wear to kid-friendly parties or while trick or treating.
