I love celebrating almost any holiday and I’ve sometimes even been known to find obscure holidays or invent my own traditions just as an excuse to celebrate and have fun with my boys.
But of all the holidays throughout the year, Halloween is easily one of my favourites. I have a tendency to go overboard with decorations, costumes, treats and food, but my boys have so much fun that I just can’t help myself. From elaborately decorated pumpkins to a yard filled with homemade Halloween décor to spook-tastic meals and treats, there are just so many easy ways to make Halloween extra festive!
And this year, Disney Junior is giving families one more way to get in the Halloween spirit! Visit the Big Halloween Party section on the Disney Junior website to find Halloween colouring pages, fun printable crafts and even templates to carve your very own Disney Junior pumpkins! I have a feeling the Mickey Mouse pumpkin is going to be a part of our Halloween décor this year!
While you’re enjoying creating spooky decorations for your house, why not whip up a fun Halloween snack for your kids? My personal favourite is this easy Ghost Toast, especially since it’s so simple the boys can make it themselves!
Looking for more kid-friendly Halloween treats? These 4 healthy Halloween snacks are sure to be a hit and will help keep the dentist bills down too!

- Spread cream cheese on toast.
- Use shaped cookie cutters or a knife to cut ghost shapes out of toast. (Don't worry, they don't have to be perfect!)

Use Herb & Garlic cream cheese and create features with sliced green onions for a savoury version of this simple snack.
