Tips on Making Halloween Simple

Oriental Trading provided me products at no cost for my honest review.

My family loves Halloween. Of course, we each love Halloween for different reasons. I love the decorations, while my girls get excited about deciding what they will be for Halloween. We also love Halloween because this gives us a chance to ‘BOO’ our neighbors, which you can read about here and eat lots and lots of candy. Now that I work outside of the home, I do not have as much time to shop all over town to find everything that I need for Halloween. Thankfully Oriental Trading has made my Halloween planning and shopping a lot easier.

Let Oriental Trading help make your Halloween shopping easy!

Tips on Making Halloween Simple 

  • Buy Big Bags of Candy: I always make sure that I have enough Halloween candy for our trick or treaters. Oriental Trading has a wide selection of candy to choose from. I make sure to grab a variety of candy and use any leftover for stocking stuffers.
  • Use Durable Decorations: I like to decorate for Halloween but I also like to keep it simple. In addition, I like to use the same decorations each year because it saves me a lot of money. When I choose which decorations I am going to buy, I always look for durable Halloween decorations, especially ones that can withstand the weather.
  • Choose Fun & Simple Games: When I had a home daycare, I always made sure that I had games for them to play during our Halloween party. Here is a post I wrote that shares some Fun Kid Friendly Halloween Games.
  • Choose 1-2 Halloween Crafts That Your Kids Will Enjoy: Every year my girls like to create a fun and spooky Halloween craft that we can make together or that they can make individually. Instead of letting each child choose a craft of their own, I choose 1-2 different crafts that everyone can make. This keeps the cost down and lets everyone see each other’s creativity. Here is a fun Glow in the Dark Mason Jar craft that we made last year.
  • Select a Simple & Safe Costume: When choosing a costume for you or your little one, make sure that you choose a costume that makes sense. Choose a costume that is easy to move in, is safe for your little one and looks good. Take a look at the costumes that my little one and her niece wore last Halloween, here. They were cute, simple and safe.

For the past few years, I have shopped at Oriental Trading because they practically have everything that I need for my kid’s costumes, home and school parties, crafts, decorations and fun Halloween treats. I am always impressed with the variety of items that they carry and their prices. Take a look at my video showing everything that I ordered from Oriental Trading for this year’s Halloween festivities at the House of Fauci’s:
