Halloween is just a couple weeks away, which means that you’ll be digging out the old witches’ hats from the attic and untangling lights tucked away in the basement. If you have young children in the house, then preparing your home for the 31st is a fun way to put your little ghosts and ghouls in the holiday spirit. The holidays can be messy and hectic, but with these helpful tips, they don’t have to be!
Before you decorate the house with cobwebs and pumpkins, give your home the cleaning it deserves. This will ensure that there’s less mess when it comes time to tear your makeshift haunted house down. If your decorations have been sitting in the attic all year, take them outside and ensure that they’re rid of any dust or dirt that may have built up over time.
As you hang up the streamers and crafts that your son made in school, make sure that you aren’t using materials that you could harm the interior of your home. Rather than taping up Johnny’s drawing of a zombie, use removable putty, a binder clip, or a magnet to prevent any paint removal.
Think about the placement of your décor. Consider that you may have several other small children running around the house with candy and sugary sweets during this month. Make sure that you don’t have any decorations that could double as a tripping hazard. You don’t want that icing to land on your new upholstery!
Avoid confetti and glitter. Some messes are better left outside. Confetti and glitter can wedge their way into the carpet fibers and small cracks, leaving a more meticulous mess.
Prepare for Messes
The costume is of the utmost importance for small children. This means that face paint, toilet paper, silly string, and a list of other potential messes will be entering your home. Don’t stress. If you’re prepared for the mess then you won’t have to worry when it happens! Have makeup remover on hand and an all-purpose cleaner close by to tackle any scary spills.
