This Halloween Trick For Kids Is So Easy and Fun, You'll Definitely Make It a Yearly Tradition
Even though the official phrase of Halloween is "trick or treat," we all know that kids really just want the candy. But what if there was a way to have both? Enter the Halloween Hobgoblin, which magically appeared this week and gave my family a fun little surprise. Attached to our front door was a cutout of a cartoon ghost and a little bag filled with goodies for my son. The ghostly note read: "You have been visited by the Halloween Hobgoblin! Within the next 48 hours, you must pass this on to 8 of your friends or neighbors. Please copy this Hobgoblin in your window so you won't be visited again! Let's see how many houses the Hobgoblin can visit before Halloween! Happy Halloween!"
My son was delighted by his surprise bag of goodies, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get him excited about the trick aspect of the holiday. While our note was kept simple and cute, you can get as creative as you want with what you and your kids write. From a spooky poem to a Halloween movie quote to a friendly message, the Halloween Hobgoblin is yours to to mold! Keep reading for more info on how to make this fun project come to life.
