I love Halloween.
This year, I am particularly excited because I think Bug almost gets it. And he knows what he wants to be….
We are HUGE fans of Jake and the Neverland Pirates. “Yo Yo Ho, Ahoy Mateys and Arggg” are all phrases we hear often around our household.
This year, I had a chance to check out some AMAZING costumes at a website called Chasing Fireflies.
While this particular costume was pretty expensive (and not something I would normally spend on an almost 3 year old), I did buy a size up so we can use it for dress up for years to come.
Looking for some new Halloween ideas? Here are some family-fun suggestions based on the findings from a recent survey conducted on behalf of Chasing Fireflies of 1,000 U.S. adults.
Choose a theme for the entire family. Creating a family-wide theme is a great way to get everyone in on the fun and make Halloween a memory for the ages. Two-thirds of adults reported they enjoy seeing entire families dressed up in a group theme. The pirate horde invading the neighborhood costume party is a guaranteed hit. And the silly photos of the event will be treasured mementos years down the road. Choosing a theme is also an ideal chance to show your creativity. Parents and kids can have a “whale of a time” choosing their favorite sea-themed costumes: a giant octopus, lobster, orca, shark, glittery tropical fish, magical mermaids and more. For a nature theme, baby sister can be baby blossom, big sister is fancy firefly, little brother is a gnome. Have all daughters? Each can choose a pretty fairy and flit out for a night of merriment.
Set your house apart from the “the usual haunts” by dressing up. Halloween is a convenient excuse to re-live the childhood fun of dressing up — both yourself as well as your house. Eighty-two percent of adults report that they looked forward to Halloween as a child. While a full two- thirds of grown-ups have dressed up as adults at least once, one of the reasons parents cite for not dressing up more often is the limited selection of costumes.
