It’s almost that time of year again when the ghosts and goblins come out to play for Halloween. When small children carry their bags and buckets though out the neighborhood and get candy and other goodies. And teens and largest kids try and scare them silly. Of course the adults can sometimes have a few laughs with the kids too. These Halloween tips will help you have a better time this Halloween at a party or just in your neighborhood.
For smaller kids remember to keep it on the lighter side. Costumes of a fireman or mad scientist tend to work better and not send them into therapy for years to come. Also when you’re running a haunted house or haunted trial you could even have a less frightening area for smaller kids.
With Halloween comes a time for teens to be mischievous. One popular activity for teens is scaring the little kids as they come by or maybe even throwing eggs at houses or cars. Which by the way is not endorsed and can send you to jail, so don’t do it! The trick is to surprise the teens and young adults. Having a less frightening setting gives them a false security that you can use to scare them once they’ve reached a certain area. For instance, set up fake train tracks and once the people are on the tracks blow an air horn and have a bright light like a train. Trust me it’s scary!
You can also have themed decorations such as a mock casket and bats. If you’re dressed up as a vampire then you’ll want to keep everything in that theme. A fireman, princess, Dracula, and ghost together isn’t going to be that scary but if all were dressed as vampires huddled up talking it would be more frightening.
Decorating for Halloween can be fun and also can provide many laughs and memories for years to come. Just remember to use your imagination and be creative when it comes to decorations or Halloween costumes. Also remember safety, keep all your decorations set up so that they are safe and will not allow anyone to get hurt if they run away or get too frightened.
