How can we use Halloween as a tool to ask our children questions?

23 October 2017

Why do people buy Halloween costumes that celebrate murder and fear? Becky shares some of the questions she used to explore the topic with children.

Halloween can be a great opportunity to speak to our children about some important issues in our culture.

Becky shares how she used the opportunity to ask the children she worked with some questions.

  • When we buy a costume that is about hurting other people, is that ok?
  • Why does God warn us about not getting involved with evil? Is it because he’s a spoilsport? Or, does he know more than we do?
  • What do you want to celebrate, and what do you want to be seen as celebrating?
