Would love to know what other families do around Halloween. Do you let the kids be involved (dress up, trick or treat)? And do you decorate your house?  A few of the families in our street have been getting into it more and more the past few years. Of course the kids really want to dress up & be involved, but I am unsure about this American tradition. Does anyone have some easy/cheap dress up ideas that we could make at home, or even some for the front of the house? What should I do for Halloween?

  • Jazrah’s town had a great idea. I think that’s great because its a way to not bother those who don’t want to be involved but also a place where all the kids can meet up and be together dressed up. I’m not really into Halloween, but evidently each year where I live there are more and more trick or treaters and more and more shop decorations and focus on it. There are some great ideas in this site.

  • Put ghost (cardboard cutting) up in the front yard, fake spiders and webs around the house, jack-o-lanterns out the front as well, scarecrow witches etc

  • We dont really do the whole halloween thing… to commercial for my liking :)

  • We’re trick or treating this year! With adults it should be fine!

  • Go to Google & reasearch halloween I found this very interesting as it was originally a Irish Christian holiday.Have a Halloween party at home depending on the ages of the kids you could let them camp outside and dressup and have a Halloween food BBQ.Not really safe to trick & treat these days Show age appropriate Halloween videos Bye

  • I went down to Big W yesterday, and if you are after Halloween decorations-then they have heaps of cheap stuff there.
