Halloween Ideas For All The Family

This year has flown by and as we approach the spooky season, we thought we would put together some ideas on how to enjoy this night of scares. Whether planning to go out or just staying in, we have your perfect night covered.

Carving Pumpkins

The classic holiday symbol, a sign that you are willing to hand out some candy to those costumed children trick-or-treating. So carve your pumpkin with an exceptional design ranging from the easy to challenging. The House Beautiful website has a plethora of ideas for those looking for inspiration. 

If you don’t fancy the mess of carving the pumpkin and prefer a safer option for all the family, why not just grab a little paint and have fun with your designs like these M&M themed pumpkins adorning your front door. Cute and sweet, these pumpkins will be the perfect decorations as well as an activity for the children. Get inventive.

Decorations

You don’t just have to plonk for a pumpkin and call it a day on decorations - why not get crafty and make some DIY decorations to add to the spooky vibe which is also a great way to get the kids involved. 

The old favourite of spiderwebs made from paper make for a fun crafty activity for all the family and why not add a cute pipe cleaner spider for that perfect finishing touch. 

For even more ideas, we love these suggestions from Crazy Little Project

Classic Films

Whether enjoying the season with children or without, why not stick on your favourite Halloween themed films. If you can’t settle for one why not make a list of 10 to watch in the build up to the big night. There is a Halloween film for every occasion that is bound to raise a smile or a jump. 

Whatever your plans this Halloween, stay safe and ensure you follow the guidelines in your local area.
