I'll be the first to admit it: Halloween just isn't my favorite holiday. I'm not creative and, well, I'm a wimp. I don't like scary things and Halloween is generally chock-full of scary.
I do, however, love to make my kiddos happy. I also love to see my niece and nephews so excited to get dressed up and show off their costumes. Finally, I adore plush fuzzy baby costumes. I'm a firm believer that babies can wear those costumes any day of year because they're so darn cute!
Because of all those reasons, Halloween has become a lot more enjoyable since I've become an adult. Not only do I see the holiday through the eyes of my children, I can choose exactly what I want to do and what I don't want to do for the holiday. For me, that means I'm going to be:
- Making fun, Halloween-themed treats
- Buying adorable costumes for my kids that don't require any creativity or craftiness on my part.
- Decorating my home in warm, fall colors and skipping any decorations with skulls, gore and anything else that's even remotely frightening!
Haiden, Piper and I had a quick discussion on what they wanted to be for Halloween. They started out not having a clue what I was talking about, so I introduced them to the Kmart Kreator. We had a fun time “kreating” costumes and uploading all of our photos to totally personalize the images:
by the time we were done with the Kreator, they were bubbly, excited and full of ideas for what they wanted to be!
Then I took a trip to Kmart last week to check out all the Halloween goodness. First, there were tons of Halloween deals! 50% off costumes plus discounts on almost everything else.
There was also a great variety of household items to prepare for, decorate and celebrate the holiday. I spied these great Wilton Cake Pop kits, along with the coordinating eyes and decorations. Super fun, right?
I also really love that they put the orange storage totes right in the same aisle with the rest of the Halloween department. It's a great reminder that color-coded storage really helps save time. Maybe if I had one or two of them I wouldn't have to search through cardboard boxes in the basement for the Halloween decorations that my son want to see!
