Halloween is a fun holiday for kids. Some countries pay more attention to the Halloween holiday than others do, but even if the families in your street don’t bother carving pumpkins or ‘trick or treating’, this doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun with your kids. Organize a Halloween party and encourage your kids to dress up. Even little kids will enjoy putting on Halloween masks, spooky costumes and decorating Halloween-themed biscuits and buns. Don’t make your celebrations too frightening if your kids are young, but if you have teenagers, rent a few age appropriate horror DVDs and let them scare themselves silly.
Here are 15 of the best Halloween masks and costumes for kids and teenagers.
