Family Friendly Halloween Events 2

family-friendly-halloweenNot to be a Debbie Downer, but come on…sometimes we don’t want HUGE bags of candy in our homes, or our family doesn’t really do “scary”. Some of our kids don’t love walking dark streets in the cold and rain and hey- some parents don’t love it either! Thankfully, there are OPTIONS for Halloween! Since Halloween is only one week away, today we’re sharing a few Family Friendly events and ideas. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to do something a little different and perhaps safer, warmer and easier, than the typical door to door trick-or-treating. If you have any fun family-friendly traditions, please share them below!
