DO NOT FREAK OUT!! HALLOWEEN IS NOT CANCELLED!!
Most of the festive holidays are looking a little different this year. But that doesn’t mean we cannot enjoy them and find some new fun ways to celebrate!!
We absolutely LOVE all things Halloween in this house. So I have put together a list of ideas to keep the Halloween spirit alive
Here are our top tips!
Watch Your Favourite Halloween Movies
Everyone loves a movie night. And better yet, why not dress up in your Halloween best with a bowl of popcorn?
Here is my round up of the top ten Halloween movies for the whole family:
- Hocus Pocus
- Monsters Inc.
- Hotel Transylvania
- Wizard of Oz
- The Addams Family
- Harry Potter (1-8)
Decorate Around Your Home
While we might not be visiting people’s front lawn or porch. That doesn’t mean we cannot get into the Halloween spirit around the home?
Why not decorate an area in your house, much like at Christmas time around the tree.
Or perhaps you can set up a Halloween table and have a Halloween party at home with your family!!
We decided to create these two great areas at home using some goodies from Woolworths.
Here is a great starter list to create the perfect Halloween scene with these great pickup from Woolies (stock varies in each store).
Make a Jack-o’-lantern
Looking for another use for your Halloween Carving Pumpkin? Well, what about the OG Halloween activity.
Your Jack-o’-lantern doesn’t have to be scary. In fact, you can always use a black marker to make a face if you don’t want to get the knife out.
Get Dressed Up in Costume
Just because you’re at home, doesn’t mean you cannot get your favourite Halloween costume out!
Woolworths have some great and affordable costumes you can easily shop for delivery or click and collect if you are not able to get to a store. Making it super easy to get your hands on a fang-tastic costume. Here are some of my favourite picks for all ages! (Costume stock varies at your local Woolies and online)
- Halloween Costume Kids Vampire
- Halloween Costume Kids Skeleton
- Halloween Costume Adult Witch
- Halloween Costume Adult Reaper
- Halloween Costume Baby Ghost
Have a Family Halloween party
Why not put your great decorating skills to good use and have a family Halloween party from the comfort of your own!!
That way you can still wear your costumes and eat your candy! There are some great tableware items as well as a huge assortment of goodies to serve up at Woolworths.
I have put a quick shopping list together for easy reference!
- Halloween Disposable Plates
- Halloween Disposable Napkins
- Woolworths Halloween Spooky Party Mix
- Halloween Trick Or Treat Bowl
- Halloween Scary Candy Bowl
- Halloween Table Cloth
- Halloween Skull Plastic Drinkware
- Halloween Drink Dispenser
Put on a Halloween Playlist
Okay!! Confession time!!
I have been listening to this great playlist on Spotify all month long. There are some of your favourite Halloween-inspired movie theme songs as well as some classics to boogie too!!
You can find the list here.
Play some Halloween games
Create a treasure hunt with your Halloween candy around the house. Grab out that box of Cluedo. Or there are some great free printables online you can use to make Halloween at home fun!
