I was browsing the halloween asile today and got an idea for a new tradition.
I got them new plastic pumpkin buckets and filled it with goodies. I'm going to put it out on Halloween morning by their beds so they can wake up and see them.
The goodies inside are:
New halloween shirts
A bag of spiders, ghosts, and bat rings for each kid
A tealight holder for each kid, in a halloween shape (lit only with supervision but they have their own candles)
A piece of their favorite candy
and to share: an Owl ornament craft kit to do when they get home from school while I bake cupcakes.
EDIT: Posters suggested putting it out on the first day of October, I think I shall! It will be a cute fun way to start off the season. Hopefully they'll really like it.
