My mom was so stinking fun. For real. She made holidays SO MUCH FUN! My favorite Halloween tradition that we did each year was to start “The Halloween Goblin” in our neighborhood. We cut out ghosts with a funny little poem on them, made several plates of Halloween goodies, and went as a family to ding dong ditch a few families. Let’s be honest, is there anything more thrilling than ding dong ditching someone when you are little? Nope, not really.
Once your family has been “haunted” you are asked to hang your ghost on your front door, so it was always thrilling to see new ghosts popping up on doors all throughout our neighborhood. And, of course, no one knew that we were the family starting the Halloween Goblin, so we always got “haunted” ourselves, which gave us an opportunity to “haunt” even more families. So fun.
I don’t know about you, but my little family will definitely be dropping off some Halloween Goblins for our Family Home Evening activity tonight! You can use my printable that is linked below for this activity. It is just the poem and the ghost face, because this way your little ones can design and cut out their own shape of ghost. Please let me know if your family enjoys this activity! Maybe it can even become a new Halloween tradition in your family!
Here is the link to my printable. Happy Haunting!
