Here are some great Halloween service ideas for families
or trick-or-treaters that are too old to go.
Sponsor a children's Halloween party and invite
the children of mothers who might really need a break from little ones or caring
from someone who is sick. You could have pumpkin painting, face painting,
guessing the weight and circumference of a pumpkin, or guessing the number of
kernels on a cob of corn.
Fill Trick-or-Treat buckets with candy and needed
items to give to the needy or to the homeless.
Secretly rake a neighbors leaves.
Have a Halloween Thank You party. Have each
of your children and even yourself choose one person that has been of service or
showed a kindness towards you and invite them to your dinner. It could be
a youth leader, neighbor, friend, visiting teaching companion, family friend,
etc. Everyone make their own invitations for their special guest.
Don't forget to serve
dinner in a pumpkin.
Carve a pumpkin and fill it with treats.
Leave on neighbors porch.
Bake pumpkin cookies and deliver them to
Especially for teenagers: Organize a party
where everyone pays for their piece of the pizza. Maybe you know a pizza place
that will donate some food and drinks for a worthy cause. At the party,
have everyone decide on an organization to donate the money to.
Teenagers - offer to take your siblings or
neighbor children trick-or-treating.
