There’s no time like the present to start preparing for Halloween!
The shops are already bulging at the seams with, often overpriced, costumes and decorations. So why not make your own! It’s much cheaper and much more fun!
I don’t like the commercialism but I do love the build up to Halloween because i love making witches and ghouls and lamps and spiders and ….. there are so many great projects linked to this theme!
We have always held Halloween Parties but not the ‘Trick or Treating’ kind. Just good harmless fun!
Games like ‘Bob Apple’ , spooky music and spooky stories and themed food. We always include a fun craft activity which is usually to make an item for the ‘party bag’ like a tiny Ghost or Witch or Spider made from CHUPPA CHUPS lollies! These take only about ten minutes to make and Kids L O V É them!
Whether you love Halloween or hate it this Festival presents a great opportunity for introducing lots of fun crafts to your children. Have a look at the Halloween Playlist on my channel. Some of the videos are presented by my ‘Jumbles’ puppets
to encourage young children to ‘have a go’ and be creative! They will get so much more satisfaction and enjoyment out of making the decorations and props than from buying them AND save you lots of money.
