Halloween is right around the corner, a day in which children actually have fun getting scared. Houses get filled with frightening pumpkins, bats and rats. If you want to actually know the origin of these traditions, go ahead and read the article we published here: Best Toys for Halloween. It even offers ideas on how to celebrate it.  Another option is making use of some fun phone apps. Here are 10 Halloween applications that will boost your children’s creativity, attention span and motor skills.

Halloween seems to have been created to wear costumes. For children, they´re great as they encourage them to express their feelings and it helps them build up their empathy skills by literally putting themselves in someone else´s shoes. Costumes also help kids socialize, as they have to interact with other children and adults while they trick or treat.

You don´t need to spend a lot of time coming up with ideas. Just follow our guide on how to make original and easy Halloween costumes, which your children can help with by using their imagination and creativity.

Another way of getting your children to improve their many skills this Halloween is by trying these phone apps, especially if you don´t have time to organize a party or make a costume. Enjoy the “night of the dead” no pouting included.
