When most people think of Halloween, they think of getting the kids dressed up and going from house to house trick-or-treating.
But there are other ways to load up on candy – ways that are simpler and kinder to us folks in the colder, northern climates.
Many shopping malls and even grocery stores are having family-oriented Halloween events this week where the kiddos can trick-or-treat at well-lit, safe locations and get lots of fun goodies. Check out the Boo Bash at Kowalski’s that TopazTook told me about. In my area, I know that both the Grand Rapids Central Square Mall and Ogle’s Foods both have Halloween events going on this week, so check the Sunday paper for details.
And for all you folks who wait until the last second to get ready for Halloween, I’ve found a few things for you, too!
Still haven’t carved your pumpkin? Check out these super-cute Disney stencils you can print out from Huggies.
