halloween decorating with kids halloween decorating with kids - product buying guide



Halloween and kids just go together so well, like spiders and their webs! While we may see tons of fancy Halloween decorations on Pinterest, generally those are not kid-friendly projects. This year keep things a little simpler and really include the kids in decorating for Halloween. Remember that the end result is not always the goal when spending time with our kids on projects like this, it is more about the time spent together and the memories made.

I’m working with BOOMbox Network (#BBNshops) right now and we have a great roundup of simple items that can make Halloween decorating with the kids a spooktacular event for the entire family. Please note that the links below are affiliate links and I have been compensated for sharing this information.

  1. Spiderweb lights – Decorating your exterior is the first step. Throw up 5-6 of these spiderweb lights from Target. Not too scary for the little ones, but still cool enough for the older kids. 
  2. Spiderweb gun – For the kids who get tired of crafts and want to stir up a little mayhem. This requires a little more work but you can create giant realistic spider webs anywhere. From the Halloween experts at Spirit Halloween.
  3. Vinyl tablecloth – These are so handy, they can add instant color and pop for your Halloween tablescapes and they are also great for protecting your table while you carve pumpkins. I pick up a couple of them each year. Kohls has a nice selection.
  4. Pumpkin Carving – Save your good knives with this pumpkin carving set from Spirit Halloween. Pumpkin scooper – It’s the scooping that will really do you in, save yourself via Spirit Halloween. Jack O’Lantern stickers – For your small ones, so they don’t get frustrated with the cutting, also from Spirit Halloween. Pumpkin power saw – Be sure to supervise, but this gadget may keep your big kids engaged. How many times have the grownups wound up still carving, long after kids have moved on to something new? Thank you, Spirit Halloween!
  5. Spooky hand towel – You’ll need to clean up after those goopy pumpkins, via Kohls. These are perfect to use in your bathroom throughout October for cute Halloween décor.
  6. Orange plates – Feed your trick or treaters on Halloween colors, via Walmart. Compostable utensils from Abe’s Market – It’s always a good time to respect the planet. You’re going to generate enough trash with candy wrappers tonight!
  7. Alexander McQueen skull scarf – From Nordstrom, for Mom, as a thank you for all her work, and to wear trick-or-treating with her little hobgoblins. I love this for wearing to work on Halloween too to give a little bit of whimsy but still not a full costume.

What kinds of decorating do you do with the kids on Halloween?
