(NAPSA) – From ghoulish images to pumpkin carvings to black cat superstitions, Halloween conjures up a variety of spooky traditions that are fun for the whole family.
This festive holiday is also a great opportunity for kids of all ages to express their creative spirit. Following are a few ideas for spooktacular Halloween activities that are sure to produce a whole load of frightful family fun:
- Involve kids in creating their own haunted look with ‘no sew’ costumes.
- Keep the bewitched memories from past Halloweens alive. Each year, take photos of all family members in costume and display the photos in festive photo frames.
- Enjoy a family evening making boo-tiful decorations. For an easy ghost decoration, cover helium balloons with an old bed sheet and tie off at the neck. Draw spooky faces on the sheet and secure with a string to a tree or railing.
- Rouse some fright by telling ghost stories round-robin style. Light the room with only a flashlight and have each person hold the flashlight while telling a part of the story. The last person in the circle decides the hair-raising end to the tale.
No matter what the activity, make sure to provide some ‘bone chillin’ brew’ and ghoulish goodies. Following is a quick and easy recipe to set the Halloween mood.
