Decorate Your Home
Bring the Halloween festive fun into your home by decorating it! Check out the video below or check out my Halloween decor ideas blog post for more ideas.
Want a super easy “art” activity? Well, spooky Halloween colouring is the answer. I have created some colouring pages for you to download and print, just click the button below.
If you are feeling a little more adventurous and artistic, why not do some Halloween crafts. You could do traditional pumpkin carving, follow Pinterest tutorials, or opt for an easy peasy craft kit.
For one of this year’s easy Halloween craft activities, we have made edible Halloween decorations! Using fillable baubles, the children made ornaments filled with halloween chocolates.
The best thing about these fillable baubles is that they can be recycled and filled with chocolates or other seasonal items for Christmas, Valentine’s, Easyer and any other holiday that you would like to celebrate.
Make Halloween Treats
Pinterest is full of spook-tastic baking inspiration but if you are looking for the easiest Halloween treats in the world to make with your kids, try chocolate Krispie cakes.
Halloween Chocolate Krispie Cakes Recipe
There are more complicated recipes out there with more ingredients, but this is the simplest (and my family would argue, the best) was to make chocolate Krispie treats.
- Melt 150g of milk chocolate in 30-second bursts in the microwave, stirring in between until the chocolate is a smooth melted consistency
- Stir 100g of Rice Krispies into the chocolate
- Spoon the mixture into paper cake cases
- Add spooky sweets on top
- Place in the fridge until the chocolate sets
Go Crazy With Costumes
Halloween is the perfect time to play dress up. Gather together all of the dressing up items that you have in your home and let your kids go wild assembling their own outfits. You could even have a fashion show or Halloween parade around the house.
Halloween Home Disco
Put together a spooky playlist of fun music and dance around! Make the dance party all the more fun by adding LED lights or disco balls.
We do Easter egg hunts, so why not have a similar Halloween themed hunt?
Not So Scary Movie Night
Depending upon the ages of your kids, have a scary or a not so scary movie night.
