These are just a few ideas, but make your own up, it’s fun and your kids will be the envy of all their school mates.
Halloween House Decorations
Don't forget to set the scene! You're gonna need to decorate your house to make it really spooky. A few spiders webs hung across the curtains is only the beginning. Here are some key points to creating the right vibe.
- Decorate doors and windows too
- The Jack-O-Lantern nicely carved and lit up
- Don't forget the outside.
And even if you're not having a party, one or two pumpkins outside shows that you are open to visitors trick-or-treating.
Baby Knows Best has some great products for all occasions, but don't miss this last chance to grab some bargains for your Halloween party. After this weekend they will be gone.
Have a great Halloween and stay safe. Only let the kids out trick-or-treating in groups and always have an adult accompany the younger ones. Don't forget your candy bag.
