A very Happy (early) Halloween … from “The Mummy Worker” and her family to you! 😉🎃
For those of you who watched my IG story the other night, I had shared our plans for Halloween. All of us are being forced to be creative given the pandemic! So I had shared our plans to have the kiddos trick or treat around a pretend neighborhood that we are creating in our backyard! 🍬 👻
The Houses 🏡
We are creating some of our houses from poster board (I’m looking at you, 6th grade science fairs), turning them around and cutting out a hole for the window and “door” in the front.
We also found this epic haunted house (as seen in our pictures) on Amazon! The kids had a blast coloring all over it 🎨 … so it’s an activity + Halloween prep all in one! (Follow my link in bio to “Halloween 2020” list of you want one for your family!)
We bought a ton of decorations from the @dollartree and @target to spookify the houses! (Lights, drapery, pumpkins etc.) on Halloween night, the plan is for an adult to sit in or behind the pretend house with a bag of candy – and the kids will go door to door to “trick or treat”! 🕷 🍭
Other Plans for the Night 🧟♂️
We are lucky enough to have secured @bostonteepeeparty and their epic movie screen for that night! We will be playing kid-friendly movies all night. (Open to recommendations, please! My absolute favorite Hocus Pocus is just a tad too grown-up for my kiddos!) 🔮
I am pretty confident that Chris wants to get a fog machine (🙄), lots of candy, spooky snacks and perhaps even a themed adult beverage!
All of our costumes are from Target … Teddy has zero idea what a Transformer is, but insisted on being one and is currently sleeping with his mask. If that’s not what childhood is all about, I don’t know what is. ❤️ Lucy is a mermaid and Lottie is a minion. But Lottie refused to wear her hat so she just walked around looking like a little disgruntled factory worker. 💼 ⛑
TheMummyingWorker and Fran-KIM-Stein send their parenting solidarity to all of you. I know we are all working hard to make this year special for our ghosts and goblins. ❤
