Just looking for different ideas on what to do with the kiddies for Halloween at home this year ๐ŸŽƒ

I am doing a surprise Halloween feast for the kids. Have found themed recipes online - graveyard sausage stew complete with tortilla gravestones, blood coloured punch with lycee and blueberry eyeballs, orange jelly in hollowed out oranges with pumpkin faces cut out, etc.

Have bought some indoor decorations and will send kids out for an hour with DH whilst I set it all up. Will have spooky lighting and music too.

Then will do torchlit sweet hunt in garden.

My street are taking part in a Haloween trail. We get given a list of jokes with no punchline, and a list of houses in the street to go to. The punchlines are displayed in the window of each participating house, and you tick them off your list of jokes.

I'll be giving my DC a sweet every time we find one (although I imagine some kind souls will be leaving sweets out, I'm just a little paranoid). The houses (including mine) will be decorated, I'm looking forward to it!

We're having a Halloween party in the park when the sun goes down. (Not in uk). No trick or treating allowed this year here, so we're making goodie packs for the kids, decorating the park and they get to wear their costumes. But it's minus 2 today so not sure if we'll be able to see the costumes under the winter gear!

I'm at work on the Saturday but will bake a batch of cupcakes on Friday night for DC to decorate with DH through the day. They can make cookies too. Will decorate downstairs on Friday night too ready for them coming downstairs.

Both can wear their Halloween costumes all day at home and then we'll go trick or treating at my DP's house (our childcare bubble).

Come back home for spooky music and buffet for tea.

Going to do a sweetie hunt in the house with clues.

Wait until DC2 goes to bed and watch Hocus Pocus with DC1.

I still want a couple more ideas for games Grin

That sounds brilliant! And getting others involved to!

Iโ€™m treating it like Easter. A Halloween egg hunt, Halloween based food. Maybe a child friendly scary film. That kind of thing.
