One thing Halloween pushes us to be is creative. Whether it’s to win Best dressed in Primary School,. Coolest outfit in high school or the creepiest/most eye catching one in college. And it’s not just about the costumes! There’s the candy, the house decorations, the spook-tacular props and themes. Kids not only love the aspects of Halloween like trick or treating, dressing up and having fun with friends but they also love ‘getting their hands dirty.’ They want to be a part of making the Halloween moment come to life.
