Yes, it’s that time of year again. Not THAT time. As the fall leaves turn orange, the pumpkin spice cravings increase, and your kids are hankering for the ULTIMATE Halloween costume, you know you’re inching closer to October 31st. But before you start freaking out about how to make an intricate costume from the latest Disney/Dreamworks movie, here are a few tips to help you transition into Halloween with a jump, skip and a fun size Snickers bar. Or three.
YOU DON’T NEED TO BE A HOLLYWOOD COSTUME DESIGNER
There is so much pressure on moms to create the perfect costume made with hand-stitched silk and organic cotton, right? Well, let’s be real, at the end of the night, your kids will be trudging through streets, grass, and mud to get to their sugary treasures. Also, they may be just as happy with their “ghost” or “sheet over the head” costume which requires zero time. Their costumes will likely be streaked with chocolate and sugar, so perfection is not even close to reality. Which is totally fine with us.
If you’re going to be the chosen chaperone for trick-or-treating, your kids will probably expect you to hold their candy, costume parts, or other items. Wouldn’t it be awesome to have an useful item like Click and Carry that will help you carry multiple bags without having to worry about ripping plastic or hurting your wrists? It also helps redistribute the weight of your bags while being able to sling it over your shoulder. Love it.
A LITTLE CANDY WON’T HURT ANYONE
Sometimes a few apple slices just won’t do. If you want to go to town on Reese’s peanut butter cups and a fun size Snickers, don’t stress about it. Just be sure you down some water or decaf coffee in between so you don’t end up wolfing down the whole bag.
SAFETY IN NUMBERS
Are you a working mother who still wants to spend time creating that special costume for your little one? Why not wrangle your fellow moms into a costume prep party so you can all work together creating the costumes while getting a little help? Or wine. No judgements.
