With October just getting started, it's a good time to begin planning for the year's spookiest holiday. From candy to costumes, Walmart offers everything you need to get set for trick-or-treating. Costumes, decorations and party supplies are all available, and customers who plan ahead will have plenty of time to get everything set up for maximum scares when the big night arrives.
Pick your favorite confections from brands like Hershey and Nestle, and don't forget to buy a trick-or-treat bag so your kids can carry all that delicious loot back home. Many come with a name on the side, so there can't be any debate about just who that piece of candy belongs to.
With a Walmart promotion code, you can enjoy benefits like 30 percent off some items or free shipping when you purchase online. Clearance sales may discount products by as much as 80 percent, or offer deals on a specific category of purchases, like electronics.
Decorations What's Halloween without decorations? Inflatable spiders, pumpkins, coffins, witches and more are great, reusable items to set the mood for all the neighborhood kids in search of sweets. Classic ghosts and black cats creeping through your yard can provide a spooky surprise!
Indoor items like stuffed dummies, a witch stirring her cauldron, bats or the grim reaper himself are perfect for setting up your own haunted house or surprising friends when they drop by. You could even put them up while the family's out and see how high they jump when they get home!
Skulls, Halloween-themed welcome mats, headstones, portraits, witches' brooms - you name it, they've got it ready and waiting. The sooner you start planning, the more frightening your project can turn out. If you scare too many people away, you and your family may have to eat all the candy yourselves!
Planning something a bit more elaborate than a few ghosts hanging from the walls? Buy a fog machine to keep everyone guessing. Nothing is more frightening than not being sure what's in front of you...or behind you. If you're planning a party, you can even get a miniature coffin to hold utensils. Don't forget a few spider webs!
With supplies like these, you can easily haunt a whole neighborhood and keep everyone on their toes! Just make sure you don't forget where you left something and give yourself a scare instead.
Costumes You can get one or more of Walmart's value bundles and find costumes in combination, like paired outfits, superhero or Pokemon costumes.
Babies can be dressed up as adorable animals, fierce dinosaurs, pillaging pirates or other characters. It's up to parents whether they want to have their ensembles to their little one's, or just let the kids bask in the attention that their adorable outfits are sure to garner.
Boys can choose from options like the popular Batman or the classic cowboy. Girls can opt for a wondrous witch, a beautiful princess or characters from favorites like Monster High.
Teens, tots and adults also have plenty of option to choose from. If you really want to make it an event for the whole family, you can even get a matching costume for your pet! You and your friends can get a good chuckle out of a devil dog costume.
No Halloween costume is complete without the right makeup and accessories to finish the illusion, so don't forget to take a look at wigs, facepaint and other tools that can help you craft the perfect face to go with your clothes.
Entertainment products Nothing helps build the atmosphere like the right music! Pick up a CD with the right sound and everyone will be looking over their shoulder. When you're done scaring everyone and the neighbors are brave enough to come back to the party, you'll probably want something fun to watch that goes with your theme. At Walmart, find the DVDs you want for a scary movie marathon and see how long the spook show can go!
Series like Scream, Nightmare on Elm Street, Predator, Halloween and Hostel are all there to make you and your guests jump out of your chairs. Pick up a different film for the kids to watch while you and your friends have the real fun and everyone can enjoy the party!
Younger kids may enjoy Halloween coloring books, especially those that feature favorite characters like Corduroy or Dora the Explorer along for the ride.
Your favorite bookworm might like a book by R.L. Stine or another horror author. With everything from Clifford and Curious George to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies available, you should be able to find something that will appeal to every member of your family. Sit down, relax, and see who scares soonest.
