If you ask my toddler what he wants to be for Halloween, you might get one of three responses, depending on his mood: Power Ranger! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle! Avengers! We popped into our local Spirit Halloween store the other day, and left with two different costumes so that he has choices on Halloween.
While there, I was impressed with their philanthropic Spirit of Children program, which brings fun and funding to hospitals across the country for children who otherwise would not be able to celebrate. When shopping at Spirit, you can choose to donate as little as $1. This year Spirit of Children’s goal is to raise $5.2 million nationally, bringing its total contribution to $21 million.
Hospitals in the Dallas area that will benefit from the funds raised include Children’s Medical Center, where a Halloween party was held this week for patients. So fun!
After our shopping trip, Andrew couldn’t wait to get home and try on his new costumes. He chose a Power Rangers Megaforce Red Ranger Costume and a Iron Man Costume.
We had a lot of fun pretending to be the Avengers and fighting Moogers in our backyard.
Andrew’s choices were right on-trend with some of the most popular costumes this holiday season. Check out the list below!

We have a Spirit Halloweenn store near our house, but I had no idea they were so philanthropic. I love when businesses give back, especially to such a worthy cause. My kids are dressing up as a dragon and a princess this year.

What a cute superhero and an amazing cause!
First of all, it is worth focusing on the atmosphere that prevails in kindergarten. This is almost immediately evident from the children who are there. If the children are cheerful, free and noisy, then, in general, they feel quite comfortable. You can always find the best kindergarten near me here
