- How about having your kids dress up as people from the Bible.
- Some churches have Harvest parties how about taking your child or children to one of them.
Those are just some ideas of things you can think about and if you think it is too late to do some of them this year put them down for next year. Now like I said I have mixed feelings about Halloween but one thing I don’t have mixed feelings on is we may see kids dress up as cute devils and demons on this day. However there is a true devil and there is nothing cute about him. ( John 10:10)
