Like most Americans we love Halloween, the holiday of spooks and frights, candy and of course “Trick-Or-Treating”. But what about those of you with new little babies that are just too young to be taking out “Trick-Or-Treating”, or to young to get in to the Halloween spirit?
Well there are plenty of great things for you to do to make your babies Halloween just as fun and festive without the hustle and bustle the late night crowd of “Trick-or-Treating” children such as; Throwing a party at your house, you could invite close family and friends to come to your home to celebrate the holiday with you and your baby. To throw a party at your own home, you could decorate with Halloween colors and accessories. You could also have snacks and grab bags of candy in case your friends or relatives bring children of their own. You can create simple games for everyone to play, to keep everyone entertained.
Another extremely cute idea, is after the Halloween party, take your babies costume if it were an animal, flower, or insect of some sort, you can turn the costume into a stuffed animal so you can save it as a keepsake for many years to come.
Another wonderful thing to do with your baby on Halloween to expose your baby to new and different sights and sounds, and really to a variety of new people to keep their little baby minds and brains working and learning constantly, is to take them “Trick-or-Treating” to retirement or assisted living homes, and not only will it widen your babies horizon of seeing exciting new faces, but it will bring great happiness to the elderly people you go to visit.
And speaking or widening your babies’ horizon, try taking your baby to a Zoo on Halloween, babies love animals and a zoo is perfect for children on Halloween, at most zoo’s the staff even dresses up to celebrate the holiday.
The older children can “Trick-or-Treat” while you and your little ones can discover and enjoy all the new and exciting animals the zoo has to offer.

Most mothers feel more comfortable taking their babies to churches on Halloween then any other place, so there are sure to be many other babies there for yours to play and interact with.
