Hey Yall!  I blog about this brand often because they are freakin' awesome!  Every last one of their products has my skin craving for all their natural beauty goodness.


If you don't know what I'm talking about, then let me school you about DERMA-E, a natural, ethical skincare brand I've been using for several years now.  Even my daughters use their products.  I owe DERMA-E major props for keeping my skin ageless, soft, glowing, without any harsh chemicals.  And that's why they continue to receive honorable mentions on my blog.

Are you looking to go to the perfect Halloween destination this year that will have you feeling spooked? If so, you’re going to love today’s article because I have done the research for you to locate the spookiest Halloween destinations. Let’s jump right in!

Tween Halloween Costume Ideas

Tween Halloween Costume Ideas  via  www.productreviewmom.com

Helping your tween decide on the best Halloween costume is never an easy task. While they may have some ideas, it may be out of your price range or just something you’re not comfortable with them wearing. Today, I’m sharing with you some tween Halloween costume ideas that should make it easier for you and your tween to agree on something that you both can love.


Dr. Seuss
 
Dr. Seuss is a childhood staple that you probably you and your tween grew up reading.  Let’s face it, everyone loves Dr. Seuss, so if your tween wants to dress up in a costume in this theme you can’t go wrong. 

Tween girls may want to wear a Thing 1 and Thing 2 costume set with their best friend, which could be as simple as purchasing a jumper dress, headband, and Dr. Seuss themed socks. While tween boys could dress up as the Cat in the Hat


Pirate Costume

Most tweens still find pirates to be cool and the best part is this is another unisex Halloween costume idea that could work for both boys and girls. 
 
For a girl, you could do something as simple as getting a pirate hat, jacket, shirt, and sword, which would pair nicely with some leggings. While boys could go with a vest, hat, shirt, and sword


Robin Hood Costume

Do you have a tween son or daughter that is obsessed with Robin Hood? This could be the perfect Halloween costume idea for them.

Girls could do something as easy as a cloak, bow and arrow, and a cape paired with some black or green leggings while boys can do a jacket, bow and arrow, and some boots


Frozen Costume

Is your tween daughter a fan of Anna? Why not let her rock an Anna Halloween costume this year? There is an assortment of different ones available at costume stores or you could get creative and make one at home yourselves. 


Cinderella Costume

Cinderella is another favorite costume idea among tween girls. As with the Frozen themed costume, you have the option of purchasing a Cinderella Costume for her or if you want to save some of your coins you could create your own costume at home that will look just as good as any store bought one. 


Sergeant Costume

Who says that tween boys are the only ones who can wear sergeant costumes? Not this Halloween!

Girls can easily dress up in a Sergeant Costume that can feature a dress or skirt while boys can stick to the more traditional pants styled sergeant costumes


Mummy Costume

Mummy costumes are a great option for your tween that wants to have a little bit more of a scarier effect this Halloween.

Girls can go with something like a dress, stockings, and headband mummy costume or a pants and shirt version of the mummy costume (for those who aren’t a huge fan of dresses). Additionally, boys also have the option of dressing up as a mummy, which could be a full set mummy costume that includes the face mask as well. 


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Costume

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle more of your tweens speed? 

If so, consider a dress Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle costume with accessories for your daughter and your tween son could dress up in a Ninja Turtle costume that reflects his favorite turtle from the squad. 


DIY Tween Halloween Costume Ideas

 

Now, as a bonus, I’m going to provide you with some DIY Tween Halloween Costume ideas because who wants to spend hundreds of dollars on Halloween costumes that are only going to be worn once.

  • Favorite Woodland Animal – Simply throw on some makeup and animal colored clothes on your child and they are good to go as a deer or other woodland animal.

  • Zombie – This is as simple as getting a zombie makeup kit, some old clothes that you don’t mind cutting/ripping up, and some red paint.

  • Favorite Celebrity – Look through your child’s favorite celebrity’s photos and find a child approved outfit and purchase a similar one. This will be an awesome Halloween costume and they can wear the clothes throughout the rest of the season as well.

  • Twins – Does your tween and their bestie want to dress similar? Go for matching outfits and they can be twins. Just like the favorite celebrity outfit idea, you will have to invest in new clothes but they can be worn as regular clothes afterwards.


As you can see from my ideas above, the options are limitless when it comes to what your tween can be this Halloween. While they’re at an age where they can provide some insight on what they want to be, if you don’t like their suggestions try to suggest some better ideas that they are sure to love and it keeps you happy as well.

Dollywood Harvest Festival with My Whole Family

Dollywood Harvest Festival with My Whole Family  via  www.productreviewmom.com

Hey Yall!  The end of last week was jammed packed with us doing exciting things, like celebrating LEGO NINJAGO DAYS at LEGOLAND DISCOVERY CENTER, going on a spooky ghost tour in Lawrenceville, GA, and ended our merry time with a mini trip back to the Great Smoky Mountains for Harvest Festival at Dollywood.


Bone-Chilling Lawrenceville Ghost Tour

Hey Yall!  For the first time for us, we went on a haunted walking ghost tour this past Friday to bring out the bone-chilling scare before the spooky night of Halloween.



My girls have been begging me to take them to a haunted house, but I feel it's a bit too scary for them still.  And, I don't want to be dealing with scaredy cats that will start having nightmares from all the fake blood and gore.



With Lawrenceville Ghost Tour, guests are guided on a moonlit walk, accompanied by a spooky storyteller who tells tales of awakened sleeping ghosts and increased paranormal activity in Metro-Atlanta’s oldest city. Without the use of gore, these tours encourage happy haunting while offering a healthy dose of spine-chilling scares.

I didn't know what to expect on tour, or how the girls might take it.  With Historic Lawrenceville being my neighboring city, I was curious to see all that has happened there during the olden days.

Our tour guide had such old-southern charm, full of charisma, which set the tone just right for the haunting stories she told.

I was quite surprised with all the bizarre events that happened in Old Lawrenceville in the courtyard square.  That 90-minute tour had me a bit uneasy, and I will never look at Lawrenceville the same again.

Did I see any paranormal activities happening while on the walking tour?



No.



And nothing popped out to scare us either. But all the thoughts there were going through my mind while hearing the stories had me with goosebumps.

My girls enjoyed it and weren't frightened at all.  However, when we were about to step inside of Lawrenceville's first jail, Michelle became extremely nervous, not wanting to go inside.

If you're looking for a spookily good time, can bring your family, and learn some haunting history of Historic Lawrenceville, check out Lawrenceville Ghost Tours, with tours happening every day in October!


Disclosure- I was invited as media to preview this tour, all thoughts and opinions are my own.



Have you ever went on a ghost tour before?
