Halloween Traditions, Scary Good Costume Contest and a $50 Gift Card Giveaway from H-E-B!

Whew!  That was a mouth full wasn’t it?

Ok, we have been talking about Halloween like crazy lately!  One thing that we try to do every year is be creative in our costumes, making most of them ourselves.  If we do use a traditional costume, then we personalize it as much as possible. I want my kids to be creative!

We also make a ton of Halloween crafts!  So far we made our Halloween Calendar for October.  We have a lot more planned!  We also are making a Halloween Lap book to educate the girls on the origins of Halloween.

What are some of your family traditions?

If you’re lacking in the idea department, head on over to the H-E-B website and check out all the fun Halloween ideas they have. They even have some cool videos up for preparing some spooky food!

Right now H-E-B is hosting a Scary Good Costume Contest!

H-E-B wants to see how creative everyone is getting with their costumes for Halloween this year. Upload your costume photos (or pet photos) for a chance to win H-E-B gift cards. The first 5,000 entrants will also receive a coupon to enjoy for “$2 off Medium Candy Bags priced at $4.50 (Mars, Hershey and more). The contest lasts from October 3 – November 5, so make sure you get your photos up.

One Not So Average Mama reader will win a $50 H-E-B Gift Card! As with all my giveaways (unless otherwise stated), this is open to US residents only.

  1. I have to admit that I really don’t like Halloween. But my kids love it! So we’ll decorate the house a bit, and they’ll go trick or treating. And I’ll stand at the door giving out candy.
