It’s that spooky time of year again! Soon, little ones (and not-so-little ones!) will roam the sidewalks dressed up as ghosts, witches, superheroes and princesses. We love seeing all of the costume creativity – and their adorable smiling faces – so we’re excited to host our annual Halloween photo contest! One lucky winner will receive a $100 Toys R Us gift card, so enter today!


Here’s how it works:

  1. Post a picture of your child dressed in a costume, on one of our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter or Instagram)
  2. Tag us in your post – @MomResourceCA on Twitter/Instagram or @CanadianMotherResource on Facebook)
  3. Add the hashtag #CMRhalloween to your post

This contest closes on November 20, 2016 at 11:59pm Eastern Time.

We can’t wait to see your little ones!
