Happy Halloween from Village Green!

Spread the love

happy halloweenMost mornings can be chaotic, but when Halloween lands on a school day, it is even more so. Watching the joy in my kids faces as they see their costumes transform them into what they had imagined makes it all worth it. I, along with everyone at Village Green Apothecary, would like to wish all the trick-or-treaters a very safe, fun and happy Halloween.

Here are some tips to ensure that your little ones have a fun and memorable time.

1. Only go to houses that have lights on.

2. Never eat any candy before it is thoroughly inspected.

3. Add reflective taping to costumes so that your children are easily seen.

4. Have fun!!
