Black and Gold Halloween Decor

My 5 year old son is obsessed with anything and everything Halloween. My 3 year old daughter is exactly the opposite and is scared to death of all things spooky. Needless to say, decorating for Halloween is a little tricky in our house.

For my daughter, I kept the kept the scary ghosts and skeletons to a minimum and put the spiders in a jar that can be covered and out of sight when needed. I let her pick out some orange glitter pumpkins from the store and she was in heaven.

I basically let my son be in charge of the chalkboard. He told me what he wanted it to say and I wrote it. He told me he wanted spider webs, spiders and a skeleton, so I did it. He loves it, and I think he did a great job at helping.

One of the best parts of the holidays is the preparation and decorating and I love that I can involve my kids. They get so excited and proud of how the house looks and it makes the whole month so much more fun!
