One interesting idea could be a neighbors group. If you’re inclined, you may want to host a small party where you let your neighbors share and contribute their ideas for out of the ordinary, children’s Halloween costumes. If you can get a group of the neighborhood families to work together to come up with original, creative costumes, it would be a fun event for all and you could swap and share items. Invite 3 or 4 families, or maybe even a whole block of parents to participate, then set aside a full afternoon and enjoy. You can set up booths, like a wardrobe closet or a face-painting & make-up booth. And when everyone’s ready for a break, open up a healthy snacks booth too.
