HERSHEY'S HALLOWEEN BOO BLVD+ Giveaway

Halloween has always been a favorite day of mine. I have fond memories as a child of going trick or treating with my friends. I remember coming home from school and excitedly putting my costume on. I always enjoyed picking out my costume each Halloween, my attire matched my current interest of that year. Soon after that it was time to go collect my candy. A trip up a neighbor's driveway could guarantee delicious candy, and you never knew what you were going to get! Of course HERSHEYS is the leader in Halloween candy. It was always a great joy when you received a full-sized candy bar! Halloween only comes once a year, why not wear a great costume this year?




Creating the perfect Halloween costume is not always an easy task. If you have children, a trip to Target or Walmart may be in order to pick one out. Make sure that you go early to ensure that you have ample costume availability. Going too late in the season can sometimes mean slim inventory. Sometimes children's costume interests are not available. If for example your child wants to be a certain cartoon character or Disney character that is not made in costume form, that's where you step in. You may have to improvise with certain clothing or a wig that they already own that matches the desired character's appearance or theme.


You can't go wrong with a ballerina costume.


Is your son dressing up as a pirate this year? This would be a great costume choice.

Handmade costumes are always a great conversation starter too. If you're handy with a sewing machine, why not create your child's Halloween costume this year? They will certainly stand out. You can even use some fabrics and items that you already own, to make the creation process easier. Also, your child will enjoy having an original costume that nobody else is wearing.


I love this homemade Halloween bat costume. The bat wings are made from an umbrella!

For whatever costume you decide, make sure that your child absolutely loves it. They only get to wear one costume. :)



I don't currently have children, but I do remember what my costume choices were like as a child. My mom usually took me to the store and we picked out a store bought costume. I recall being a witch, and a nurse among other things! As I got older, my costumes became a little bit more homemade. When I dressed up as a cat one year, I wore all black, but I went to the store to buy face paint and cat ears. I used the black face paint to draw whiskers and a nose on myself. The cat ears headband completed the look. I like combining elements of store bought and homemade items to create the ensemble.


When I was growing up, I always loved decorating for Halloween with my mom. After buying and carving the pumpkin that set on the doorstep, we would put out the yard decorations which featured skeletons, ghosts and witches. Of course there were inside decorations, too. Spider web window clings adorned the windows and pumpkin figurines were displayed on the window sills and mantel. Halloween sugar cookies would be in the oven baking as we made the spirit of Halloween come alive both inside and outside. On the day of Halloween, we played spooky music on a cassette tape (I am dating myself here!) that filled the entire house. I absolutely loved it.



Halloween is all about having fun. Make sure that you make this exciting day a special time for your child or children this year. Do you have traditions that you do with them every year? It's never too late to make meaningful Halloween memories!
