The nights are longer, the weather is colder, and All Hallow’s Eve is on its way. There may be ghouls and ghosts and witches roaming the streets, but in this house, there are Superheroes. Three Superheroes to be exact, and of course, Superheroes should dress the part, with rippling muscles, leotards with leggings, and capes. Luckily, Target has just what we need, including muscles (and all at great prices- beats spending hours in the gym to get those biceps!).
We went shopping at our local Target, which is exploding with fabulous, colorful costumes, Halloween decorations, and of course yummy treats. The costumes range from from spooky to fun, and we found a lot of great stuff. Little man is to be Captain America, the baby is going to be Batman. Hubby can’t think of what he wants to be, but he got a real kick out of a gorilla suit (marked as appropriate for ages 3+ – I got a kick out of that 🙂 )
There were Angry Birds costumes (but little man does not want to be a bad piggy, he was vehement), and Super Mario Brothers, and of course face paints and mustaches and wigs. My husband didn’t want to leave. He would find another section and exclaim “This is so cool!.. I always wanted this as a kid!.. Hey, let’s get the kids THIS!” so yeah, I think Halloween might be a holiday for big kids too.
There were lots of creepy Halloween decorations, but the craft sets that allow us to make decorations are my favorite. It’s a great way to have the kids sit and be creative, and then display their creations. The glow in the dark window clings look kind of cool and creepy too, and a friend recently told me that adding a glow stick (Target has them in various bright colors like atomic green and neon yellow) to a bubble bath also makes for glowing bubbles when the lights are turned out, so we have a lot of cool things we plan to do in the weeks leading up to Halloween!
So what should I be for Halloween? What are you planning to be?
