Decorations are showing up and pumpkin spice is in the air! While this time of year can be exciting for a child, it can also be a little scary, especially for little ones under age 5. Check out these tips that may help your child (and you) make the most out of the season.

🎃 Let Your Child Pick Their Costume: When a child gets to choose their Halloween costume, they're likely to be more comfortable and excited. Let them try their costume on a few days in advance to get comfortable so day-of can be focused on having fun!

👻 Establish Real vs. Make-Believe: Embrace their imagination while teaching them the difference between make-believe and reality. Help your little one understand that even dressed up in a costume, people are still the same as before. You can use the costume to build a story with your child: What would your character do? What would they say? Where would they go?

🔮 Answer Questions Honestly: There's a lot to be curious about this time of year. It’s common for children to see things that might be hard to understand at their age, such as haunted house decorations or a mummy costume. Answer their questions truthfully while reassuring them it's only pretend and sometimes people think it’s fun to be a little scared.

🪄 Keep Things Safe & Have Fun: There’s no reason why parties or events can’t take place during the day when they’ll be less scary and safer in terms of visibility and traffic. Let your child take the lead, whether that's visiting every house in the neighborhood or just walking down the street. The key is that they enjoy the fun and fantasy, without the fright.

Save these for later and share them with a friend!
