My Halloween Dilemma: Should We Do a Family Costume?

Now that we are a family of four, I feel like the pressure is on to go “all out” for our Halloween costumes. We’ve got two adorable little boys who would look cute even dressed as paper sacks… but Mommy and Daddy would look silly.

My dilemma is this: Should we dress all alike as a theme? Or should we dress as individuals in whatever we like the most?

5 Fun 'Dia de Muertos' Crafts for Toddlers

Day of the Dead, or Dia de Los Muertos, is a colorful holiday primarily celebrated in Mexico as a way to remember and celebrate those that have passed away.

Although my family (from Colombia) never celebrated this holiday, I think it’s great for my son to learn about different cultures and traditions.

Here are five fun, toddler-friendly “Dia de Los Muertos”crafts your little one would enjoy!

DIY Costumes for Babies & Kids

Halloween is just a couple of weeks away. Do you know what your kiddos are going to be this year? My girls keep changing their minds. One day they want to be spiders, the next day they want to be princesses.

If you are also looking to make your own Halloween costumes, click through this great round up of DIYs. There are tutorials for every skill type – from no-sew, to more advanced!

Paint Pumpkins with Baby This Halloween!

My kids love painting. We always have to keep painting supplies on hand so that they can get creative at a moment’s notice.

A couple of years ago, when Liam was still a baby, we bought a giant pumpkin and stripped Liam down to his diaper. We went outside and let him have so much fun painting the pumpkin (and himself). He loved it, and he really loved being able to play with the hose after while we cleaned him off.
