Keep your kids entertained this half term with our seven Halloween themed Spooktacular ideas!
1. Broomstick Race
Get your kids moving with this fun activity you can play outside or inside for rainy days. You will need two brooms. Split the players into teams and see who can race on a broom from one end of the garden to the other the fastest. Throw in a few capes and some witches hats for added effect.
2. Pumpkin Picking & Carving
Visit your local pumpkin field and enjoy picking a pumpkin to bring home and carve together into fun faces or shapes. Get inspiration by using templates to help.
3. Get Baking
Kids love helping you in the kitchen! Make the most of the pumpkin leftovers from carving and make a Pumpkin pie, soup or risotto. Got a sweet tooth? Or small children? Oreo spiders are easy and mess free, stick-on liquorish legs to the Oreos with writing icing, and googlie eyes are a bonus!
4. Movie Night In
Turn the lights low, light a candle in the pumpkin, get a hot chocolate, popcorn and snuggle up and watch a Halloween classic, we love Hocus Pocus!
5. Pumpkin Hunt in House
Hide mini pumpkins or decorative pumpkins in the house with a series of clues to find the next one! Leave a prize at the end. You could get the kids to take it in turns and time them to see who makes the fastest time.
6. Musical Mummies
Have a blast with a Halloween twist on the classic musical statues. Get the kids grooving to the monster mash, and when the music stops, they must “drop dead” to the floor and stay as still as they can.
7. Halloween Wreath
Make Halloween wreaths for the front door, for little ones this could be made using a cardboard cut-out of a wreath shape and gluing images on. For older children using retro sweets and a glue gun (always supervise) finished with a bow looks effective!
