10 Ways To Amuse Your Highly Disappointed Kids If Halloween Is Cancelled  the crying mummy1 141x200 jpgI don’t know what it’s like in your spooky neck of the woods, but we’ve got an 80 percent chance of rain and thunderstorms in the forecast for Halloween. There is no way I’m taking my kids door to door when it is pouring and lightning out, and they will be sad little ghosts about this. I’m lucky, because my brood is past toddler age so they can be distracted by scary treats and movies on TV.  For those of you with smaller kids who are looking forward to Halloween, here are some ideas in case the festivities are cancelled due to stormy weather.

Make Some Mummies

From Toddler Boredom Busters, let your kids wrap each other up as mummies using toilet paper. You could award the kid who makes their mummy the fastest some little treats like plastic spiders or that candy no one is coming to your door to claim.

Kids love when you hide something and play Hot and Cold with them, I have no idea why but most kids could play this for hours. Hide a piece of candy and let them try to find it while you say “No, cold, cold, you are so cold you have icicles on your nose and oh no you are freezing.” Or whatever else you say. All I know is your kid will be amused.

You sit in one room with a door, have your partner or an older sibling sit in another, and let your kid knock on doors for treats. It won’t be as exciting as Trick Or Treating the real way, but it may amuse them for a bit, especially if you act all shocked each time you see them.

Cuddle Up And Read Spooky Stories

We know the Mall Of America has the world’s largest trick or treat festivities, and chances are if you have an indoor mall by you they may offer the same. I’m not a huge fan of leaving the house in yucky weather, but if you or your child are super excited about their costume the mall may be the place to go.
