Where to Find Easy Halloween Fun for Kids

The holidays are coming and it all begins with Halloween! As soon as their August birthdays are over, my kids immediately start asking me how much longer until Halloween. Do they enjoy the candy or the costumes more? Or maybe it’s getting to stay up later than 7:00 PM? Whatever the case may be for your kids or mine, Halloween is definitely a big deal to them.

Luckily, there are plenty of chances for kids to wear their costumes and collect candy at one (or many!) local trunk or treat events. Our Trunk or Treat Roundup will help you plan the best way to maximize your Mom Tax on all their candy.
