My first suggestion would be to stock up on candy - for yourself, not for your little one ;)
Then, bring on the games and fun for the long night ahead- what better way then to stay warm and enjoy all the fun of Halloween indoors? Remember to take a bunch of photos and have FUN with your baby, because before you know it, you will be out freezing and walking the rainy streets to earn that candy. Disney Baby has compiled a helpful list to get you started and even spark a little of that imagination to make your special day perfect with your adorable little monster!
SPOOKY FESTIVITIES FOR YOU AND BABY
Spooky scenes, creepy costumes and eerie eats: these Halloween favourites can be overwhelming for a little one. But while there’s plenty to be scared of on All Hallows’ Eve, getting your baby involved should be no cause for fear. Here are five great ideas from Disney Baby for toning down the fright night festivities, so your little pumpkins can join in the action too!
Be an early bird
If your baby is old enough and you want to go out and trick-or-treat or take in the ghoulish sights, don’t be afraid to head out early. Try talking to your neighbours and organizing a special event for wee ones before the real action begins. Or find out who is home during the day, and make your rounds then!
Nix the neighbourhood
If you aren’t comfortable taking your little ones trick-or-treating, there are often local baby-friendly events you can bring them to instead. If you’re not sure where to start, try a zoo! Many organize Halloween activities specifically for young children.
Revel with your relatives
For a more low-key option, have a little party at home or take your baby to visit the family! Have everyone get dressed up in fun, friendly costumes, make a few treats like these frozen ‘boo’-nana pops, or set up a creepy craft station.
Stick with stories
If the idea of Halloween is still a bit overwhelming, and you want to introduce it to your little one slowly, start with a few Halloween-themed tales, like Pooh says Boo! or Halloween Surprise. Books like these are a simple and easy way to bring the festivities home, ensuring that baby enjoys a Halloween treat, and you enjoy a quiet night in.
Choose a comfy costume
Whatever activity you choose, if you decide to include a costume, make sure baby is not only cute but also comfy. This cozy Mickey Mouse ensemble features soft fabrics, as well as snap button closures to make mom’s life easier!
