Spooky Halloween – not here!

I’m not really a Halloween fan if I’m honest.

We never really did it at home growing up.

Maybe once or twice when I was older we went trick or treating with friends but dressing up in scary outfits and decorating the house with spooky decorations definitely wasn’t done in our house.

That maybe why I’m not all that keen on dressing young kids up in costumes such as ghosts and witches – all it ends up doing is spooking them and giving them bad dreams – I can’t be dealing with that.

Emmy may want to dress up but I’ll make it an outfit she can wear again throughout the year.

As a Poundland Ambasador I have been sent £20 worth of vouchers to spend on Halloween and this year I’ve done it differently.  Yes they have a whole heap of bats, spider, ghosts and spooky decorations but I wanted to keep the spooky/creepy feel to a minimum.

Here is what I opted for:

  • A cat outfit for Emmy
  • Scooby Doo glow sticks
  • A glow in the dark necklace and braclet (glow stick style ones)
  • Bags of sweets for the trick or treater’s who are going to visit
  • A pumpkin sweetie holder/sweet holder
  • Pumpkin drinking straws
  • White card
  • PVA glue
  • Paints
  • Pumpkin carving kit

Emmy and I are planning on a craft day tomorrow and using the card, glue and paints we will be making some pumpkin pictures.  I also picked up silver sparkly paint which will be great for painting spider web pictures so we can make some more Pom Pom spiders.

  1. I didn't bother until the kids pestered to go trick or treating so now I try and make their outfits when I can but time doesn't always permit but we have made an effort to carve and decorate 2 pumpkins this year, I wanted something different so used mr potato heads arms and ears to make it more jolly 🙂

  2. I'm the same, I don't like the overly spooky or gross side of halloween. I do like pumpkins or cute costumes but none of the blood & guts etc!!! I don't find that suitable for my kids, it would freak them out!!
