Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

It's October! It's going to be Halloween Time! I'm getting excited for Fall.

Although we haven't Boo'd anyone yet, I do have the Boo Bag ready to go. I'm going to wait until a little closer to Halloween this year. Since we are in a campground this year, I am only doing one Boo Bag. (If you are wondering why we are in a campground this year, check out our family trip website at Tepe Travels). 

We are still floating easy costume ideas, decorate, and need to find a local pumpkin patch. Although the RV kitchen can be challenging, I think we will probably still be able to roast the seeds. I did find some easy decorations at the local dollar store and now need to figure out how to put them up.

I know COVID may change a lot of Halloween plans around the country. If Halloween is cancelled, we can still make it fun for the kids: maybe by booing the neighbors or friends/family, trick or treating within your tribe, or having a movie night and decorating cookies. Some of my past Halloween posts would be good for staying home Halloween fun.

  • Halloween Mazes:
  • Coloring Page.
  • Pumpkin Soccer or Bowling. Use a small pie pumpkin as the ball. 
    • Soccer: Split into two teams and create goals (small plastic cones work well). Have kids spider walk (aka crab walk) and kick the pumpkin soccer ball with their feet.
    • Bowling: Make pins from rolls of toilet paper.
      • Ghost pins: Decorate rolls with black paper eyes and mouth.
      • Mummy: Wrap a piece of toilet paper around a roll and add eyes.
      • Witch: Wrap in green tissue paper, add construction paper eyes/nose/mouth, and top with paper hat.
      • Vampire: Add fangs/mouth/eyes, and a black paper cape.
      •  Frankenstein: Wrap in green tissue paper, draw with sharpie or add black paper stitch marks/scars. Add eyes/nose/mouth.



Some of my Fall Fun links work great for Halloween too!
