It's less impactful
A home-made Halloween is a chance to consume consciously.
Focusing on doing things at home means more quality time together.
And safer for all
We're all doing our bit to stay safe and minimise the spread of coronavirus.
Spooky Sweetie Hunt
Hide sweets around the house and set everyone off in search of them. Play our spooky playlist below to get everyone in the mood.
Write a themed treasure hunt around the house complete with jumps and scary noises.
Have a Jack’O lantern design competition with your friends. Take pictures and nominate a judge to pick a winner.
Do some spooky face-painting and FaceTime your family and friends. Think of the carbon emissions you're saving by phoning instead of visiting!
CANDLES TO SET THE SCENE
Make a spooky camp with blankets and chairs and pretend its a hut in the middle of a forest. Scare the occupants with imaginative sound effects - wolf howls and breaking sticks.
Get everyone to think up a spooky story using props - tell the story of King Harold’s death by an arrow in the eye and pass around an orange to poke fingers into; or Hansel and Gretel using a twig like the bone for Hansel's finger.
Play Halloween games like apple-bobbing, biscuits on strings and ghost-man’s bluff (blind man’s bluff with a sheet over your head) .
Choose an age-appropriate Halloween movie. Our favourites: Coraline, Hocus Pocus, Adams Family, Stargate, Corpse Bride and Sleepy Hollow.
WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS... EAT TREATS!
Our Favourite Halloween Recipes
Not only does making home-made spooky treats save on transport and packaging, you can also alter ingredients or reduce sugar content if you feel like it. And if you involve the children, there's the bonus of keeping them busy at the same time!
