I used to love dressing up and going trick-or-treating as a kid, and even as a teenager, I loved pretending to be someone else. But as I have come closer to God, I’ve felt a discomfort to opening my door to strangers dressed in scary costumes. I do not like being scared as I did at one time. As a parent, I had to balance between having kid fun and keeping the focus away from the scary parts. I did the best I could.
Now, there are some fun ways to enjoy Halloween with Christ as the center of it all. I’ve listed some resources here for you to check out. I’m sure there are more resources out there, but these were a few of the ones I liked.
The Pumpkin gospel uses the concept of carving pumpkins into becoming a new creature in Christ.
I’ve not read this book, but I chose it to add to the list because it was written by a mom who needed to explain why their family didn’t celebrate Halloween.
This is a favorite of mine. Again, the pumpkin is a symbol of becoming new and shining for Jesus.
A cute little book for giving God thanks.
This rhythmic book shows how we are surrounded by blessings.
Treat bags representing Jesus are great to give to the trick-or-treaters.
Christian tracks with Halloween themes to give out.
Holy Ghost shirts
Fall-o-ween (Following) Jesus
