For so many Christians, Halloween is a time when they struggle. There’s always the battle of is it alright to celebrate Halloween or not. For me, it’s never been an issue. I grew up trick-or-treating and still have just as strong, if not stronger faith. My belief is that Halloween only has to be as demonic as you make it.
I have two blog reader exclusives for you today that might help bring the Christian spirit to your Halloween.
The first is a treat bag with 2 Corinthians 4 on it. It uses an adorable cross in the pumpkin patch graphic. Print 2 copies and glue together. These would make great treat bags to pass goodies out to trick-or-treaters, take to a church fall harvest event, use in a Christian school, and there’s so many other ways to use them.
Here’s a thumbnail view of the bag….
The second item that I created to share is a seed packet. The adorable graphic on the front says “Christians are like pumpkins”. The back features the poem to the same title on the front. I put pumpkin seeds inside of mine and passed them out to the kids in my class so that they can spread…..and grow….the Christian spirit. These could easily be passed out to trick-or-treaters on Halloween to spread the word, shared a church harvest festivals, and used for so many other events.

I have one more goodie!! Wednesday after my religion class, I posted the craft that I did with my class on my family blog. It’s the “Pumpkin Prayer” and it’s based on the book by Liz Curtis Higgs. I’d like to also share it with you, so if you go to this post, you can read about it and download it as well.
I hope that you and yours have a very happy, safe, fun, and blessed Halloween!! Please remember that I always appreciate your comments and feedback on the materials that I create. Also, I’d love it if you’d vote for my blog by clicking the button below too….thanks!!
