Halloween is just around the corner, and before you unleash your little trick or treaters on the neighborhood it’s time to take a look at some sustainable and conscious alternatives to the usual frights and delights the festivities bring. Just in time for pre-Halloween weekend fun, we give you the Great Green Halloween Roundup!
The folks over at Inhabitat have you covered for costumes. This October they’ve rolled out a steady stream of costume-related posts.
Treats for The Health-Minded
Skip the candy and chips and go for these healthier alternatives instead.
Fun Crafts and Decorations
There’s an abundance of great ideas for reusing household items to make delightful Halloween themed crafts and decorations with your kiddos. Here are just a few of the ones we liked. A word to the wise – save those paper egg cartons.
Remember to stick to familiar neighborhoods and thoroughly check any candy that comes home before you let the little ones eat it.
In our home, we keep a small baggie of the kids’ favorite candy, and then donate the rest to The Good Witch (i.e. send it to the office for other people to consume).
Here’s to a safe and happy Halloween!
