Even though we can’t do what we would usually do this Halloween, the boys still really want to get dressed up, they absolutely love it and loved that their sisters dressed the part too! It was a great way to really set the atmosphere. For the kids it's full on costume all the way, the boys loved the skeleton gamers and the girls witch costumes are so cute! For me a slogan t-shirt and horror headband are the stylish way to do halloween, plus I’d easily be able to wear this t shirt afterwards too.
As a family we love our food, and Halloween themed treats are a brilliant way to get the kids busy and spark their spooky imagination! To make it super easy (for both me and the kids), we decided to do biscuit decorating, I put some plain biscuits & mixed up some icing in white, black, blood red and orange to spread on top, with sprinkles to finish, really simple and the boys loved it! Next time they want to add Dracula blood jam and candy floss as cobwebs to their creations.
If you can’t go out trick or treating, we thought why not try a sweet hunt round the house? This was such a huge hit for our gang! My husband Jordan and I loved finding ingenious places to put the treats, we had few hiding place tricks up or sleeve too, but the boys found them all! It really got us all in the Halloween spirit, the boys looked the part in their Matalan costumes too and filled their buckets up to the brim by the end of it! Now we need to think of even more hiding places to do it all again on the 31st!
Ultimately whatever you do, make it one you can all enjoy as a family, making happy memories in this uncertain time is best way through. We will also be carving pumpkins and painting our faces, maybe we'll even have a halloween disco just the 6 of us! We also thought instead of knocking on doors for trick or treating, we could leave goody bags of the spooky treats we've made at friends and families doors. It may not be our usual halloween but I know will have a spookily spectacular time regardless.
