By the time kids are in middle school some of them give up on trick or treating while others county the days until Halloween. And some years the weather is lousy for trick or treating, so we adapted out Halloween fun to suit the weather and the kids, and had a Teen Halloween Feast and re-named all of the food to suit the occasion. It doesn’t really matter what you make, it’s what you call it that counts! For example:
Some face paint and a Halloween playlist or a movie (we’re wimps, we always watch It’s the The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!) and no one will miss the walk around the neighborhood in the rain.
