02 | Have Your Kids Practice Trick-Or-Treating at Home

I guarantee you'll get some laughs with this one. Teach your kids how to trick-or-treat for when the big day finally comes. Have one child stand on one side of a door, and the other knock with their candy bag in hand. You can teach them how to recieve candy politely, how to say "Happy Halloween" and "Thank you!" when visiting houses.

Costumes can take some creativity. It can be that time of year to break out the sewing machine and visit the fabric store or repurpose old clothes. The easiest way to choose a costume, ask your kid!
