Spook-Free Halloween for Kids

spook free halloween ideas

Hey friends! I posted on Instagram the other day about how I LOVE making ALL holidays as fun and magical as possible! I.love.it! 

However, I have a harder time with Halloween! I don't love witches, ghosts, celebrating fear/death/gore. But we DO love pumpkins, black/orange/purple, sparkles, fun costumes, parties with friends, making it the most fun!! 

Surprisingly, SO MANY of you private messaged me saying "me too!" I think a lot of us don't want to feel like we aren't as fun or are missing out because we are trying to avoid *some* parts of Halloween! But actually, there are a lot of us in this boat! And let me tell you, we can still make it SO FUN!!

So I thought I would create a round-up of all things Halloween that are excluding the spooky stuff! (I personally have decided jack-o-lanterns are fine as long as they aren't scary-looking.) 

You can still decorate your house, have a party, make festive food, wear festive shirts, AND avoid the gore/fear/spooky stuff. I hope and pray and plan to do it in a fun enough way that my kids don't feel like they are missing out at all!! I like to focus on what we LOVE without really giving attention to the things I'm trying to avoid. 

I found so many fun ideas! Hope this is helpful to you! Let me know!
