Cute Haunted House Halloween Invitation & Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween House & Candy Corn Border

Halloween House & Candy Corn Border

Trick or Treating, like Halloween, can be traced back to All Souls Day, a long time ago.  The poor people would go out at night to people’s homes begging and the people would give them treats called soul cakes. Times changed and the children became the beggars.  As they went to different houses, they would be given fruit, bread, and maybe money. 

When the custom came to America, children would be given candy as it was also tradition that if a child was not given something, the child would play a trick on them, such as egging their house. 

With the traditional door to door trick or treating not being as safe as it once was, why not send your child’s friends a halloween invitation to gather at your home for candy, games, fun and a costume contest.

If you do send your little goblins out trick or treating, here are a few safety tips to follow:

 Tips for Children:

  • Follow the road rules, cross only at corners
  • If there are parked cars, do not cross between them
  • Walk the opposite direction that the traffic is going
  • Never wear your mask when you cross the street, always take it off
  • Always watch out for cars that may be backing out or turning around
  • NEVER go to or into someone’s house you don’t know

Tips for Adults:

  • Know where your child will be going and the route they are taking 
  • Make sure that there is an adult with the children
  • Know if your child will be going to other activities
  • Have a curfew set for your child to be home
  • Tell your child that there is a difference between tricking and vandalizing
  • Tell your child to not eat their candy before you inspect it

Costume Rules:

  • Make sure that the costume is not flammable
  • Make sure that the costume is brightly colored or if it is dark, iron on some reflective strips so they can be seen by street lights and car lights, and carry a flashlight
  • Do not include high heeled shoes or long costumes that the child may trip over

For family fun for everyone, Mom and Dad should catch the spirit of the holiday and dress up too!

Monster Movie Marathon & Scary Invitations

Slumber parties are not just for girls or for birthdays!

A great pajama party idea for girls and boys is a monster movie marathon. Choose the scary movies you want to show, get permission from guest’s parents that they approve their showing, then pop the popcorn, serve the pizza and get ready for some screaming. If your guests are young, show cartoons with their favorite monster characters.

Halloween is a great time for this kind of party. After trick or treating, everyone can change into their pajamas, grab their pillows and settle in for a fun night of screams, giggles and candy overload.

Friday the 13th - Are you afraid?

Friday the 13th - Are you afraid?

Triskaidekaphobia is “the fear the No. 13.” Are you aware of why today is conisidered unlucky, anyhow?

Can you turn to the person next to you, look them in the eye, and honestly say that you have never felt a twinge of concern in the morning when you realize it is Friday the 13th? It’s time for triskaidekaphobes to acknowledge their shared superstition, learn its possible source, and try to gain some insight into what it means for millions of people to hold such a belief.

Magic Invitations and an Amazing Card Trick

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

Magic invitations are a popular theme for kid’s birthday invitations.  You can find an entertainer for your birthday bunch through the internet, referrals from friends or local newspapers specializing in children or parenting.  We had a magician for my son’s second birthday party and he was totally enthralled through the whole show as were all the guests.

This YouTube video of James Galea at The 2009 Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala for Oxfam Australia, will have you saying, “How did he do that?”  Enjoy!
