Fall feels like it has officially arrived when pumpkins begin to make appearances on front steps.  It is especially fun to see the transformation from robust orange vegetables to scary faced creatures staring back with illuminated geometric eyes and wide mouthed grins.

With this hello to fall comes the trick or treat preparations which can start innocently with browsing costume ideas to the full out discovery that there are no more fairy wings to be found in the costume aisle.

As busy moms, it may seem daunting to create a costume from scratch, but there are some surprising ways to dress up little goblins that go beyond cutting eyes in your favorite top sheet!  Children even have a way of coming up with their own costumes if given a chance to look through dress up clothing!

This Halloween season, pick one task and vow to make it easier on your self.  Here are a few tips to help you with your mission:

How much candy to purchase for trick or treaters? 

Start now, with each trip to the grocery store pick up a bag of fruit juice gummies, you will find that the candy and alternatives tend to go on sale the weeks before Halloween.

What to be for Halloween?

When the questions start coming from little ones mouths, begin the perusing of past costumes and dress up clothes and make a contest out of seeing who can come up with the most creative ideas!

Plan dinner ahead of time!

Inevitably, school aged children will come home this Halloween excited about the evening and possibly even pre-loaded with sugar from school functions.  Be sure to prepare some healthy snacks and have an easy dinner ready to prepare.

Recruit the neighbors!

If you have a busy neighborhood and would like some help with distributing the Halloween goodies, try recruiting some older children to assist with the duties.  Teens often want to forgo the door-to-door but yet still love to be involved with dressing up and having fun!

Get your exercise in!

If you would like to get the trick or treat route pre-planned, start the night before and park in the neighborhood or stake out your own blocks near home.  Take a fast walk around and check out the houses, look for streets that will be easy to maneuver with little ones and while you are at it pick up the pace to get your heart rate up!
