Half Term Halloween Fun

'Tis the season to be… SPOOKY!
Halloween is upon us, which means it's the perfect time to get the kids together for some good old-fashioned Halloween fun!

From scary food oozing with slime, to apple bobbing, costume competitions and all-round spookiness, we all love Halloween.

This half term, let your ghoulish side out and let the kids take part in some freakish fun…

Here's a list of eerie Halloween half-term ideas:

Pumpkin Carving
Gather the kids and partake in one of the most traditional Halloween past times around. Pumpkin carving has been enjoyed for generations, and not only is it fun, it's also cheap - win win!

All you need is a pumpkin, a marker pen and a knife (adult supervision required).

To make it more fun, why not turn your pumpkin carving into a competition? Or test out your skills by carving your favourite creepy characters.

Here's some simple ideas that work amazingly well:

Bake Spooky Treats
