How Does Your Family Prepare for Halloween?

I love the fall and with it comes one of the best holidays in my opinion. My mom always had a special way of making Halloween so much fun when I was younger that I have tried to do the same with my daughters. I love how early my girls start deciding what they are going to be and that they love it and anticipate it so much.

We are in full swing getting ready for this fun holiday and I wanted to tell you about a awesome website that helps your little ghosts and goblins decide if they want to be ghosts or goblins. Kmart has a neat interactive program on their website called the Kostume Kreator. It is a way for your child to get their creative juices flowing and to help them choose the perfect costume. You first pick a category such as pirates, fairies…ect and immediately a cute paper dollish person appears in the costume you chose, but there’s more! you eventually add your own face and accessories and background to come up with a one of a kind halloween scene that you can easily share with others.

Shout my 7 yr old had a blast creating her unique persona with very little help from me. It really is a cute program. Here is what she came up with.

I love how it shows actual costumes available on the side. Shout is so excited to be a Lady bug and it was really convenient to order her costume online immediately after she made her little character. She can’t wait to get it in the mail and try it on. Here is a little bigger picture of her Kreation. ( I love the glasses she chose) What a hoot.

Some of our other plans for Halloween include trick or treating of course, and me always cooking a warm meal to enjoy after all of that hard work that getting your weight in candy includes. I make soup or chili and love to have it in giant bread bowls.  I also try to plan fun activities around halloween such as corn mazes and neighborhood parties so they can get a lot of use out of their costumes. No reason just to wear it once. Especially when so much thought was put into it.

Using Kmart’s Kreator is helping me create a fun and memorable Halloween for my family. Try it for yourself! Find all your Halloween needs at Kmart’s Halloween Shop.
