Come celebrate Halloween at Coral Square Mall this year where they will be offering area children a safe place to take part in Halloween activities.
On Friday, October 31, the Simon Kidgits Club presents its annual Halloween event from 4-6 p.m. in Center Court.
“Coral Square is the perfect place for families looking for Halloween entertainment in a fun, safe community environment,” said Xiomara Fraga, director of marketing and business development at Coral Square. “Whether kids want to show off their new costume or take home some Halloween-themed crafts, there is an activity here for every ghost, witch, princess and werewolf. This Halloween event is a great addition to our year-long Simon Kidgits Club programs.”
This year, The Simon Kidgits Club will recognize October as Bully Prevention Month in association with ‘Malls & Retailers Unite Against Bullying,’ and their children’s property Captain McFinn.
Captain McFinn promotes social and emotional development in children through live virtual playdates, online games, apps and resources for parents and teachers.
At the Coral Square Halloween Kidgits event, a free app called The Bully Free Zone will be available for download. The Bully Free Zone is an app released by Captain McFinn and features fun activities, a new McFinn cartoon, and a chance for families to win a free iPad Air.
Families who download the app can sign the Bully Free pledge and help spread the word about bully prevention. They can also spread kindness with one of the app’s featured activities, the Kindness Calendar. With the Kindness Calendar, children and parents receive prompts to complete acts of kindness. Once an act is complete, it is tracked in the Kindness feed. The more kind acts that are accomplished, the more badges children and their parents receive. This free app is a perfect and fun way for families to participate in Bully Prevention Month.
Coral Square will have several activity stations and games for children and their families to enjoy. Get crafty decorating a mini pumpkin or creating your very own Halloween foam and bead necklace. Snack on “frankinpudding” and Frappucino samples from Starbucks. Additionally, the spooktacular event will also feature live performances by Twins Gymnastics and a Joe Dimaggio activity table.
The Simon Kidgits Club is a fun and informative program that focuses on health, wellness, education, safety and entertainment for children ages 3-8. Since 2003, the Simon Kidgits Club has kept children and parents alike amused with various events and activities while providing incentives for club members, such as special offers, rewards and games.
Simon Kidgits Club members receive a variety of goodies, including a Simon Kidgits Club T-shirt, membership card, birthday card and gift, discounts and scheduled activities. For more information about the Simon Kidgits Club, visit http://www.simon.com/kidgits/.
