1. Pumpkin carving competition! Asda are selling two pumpkins for £3, so I dutifully bought two plus two pumpkin carving kits (which were £1 each). My sister in law and hubby carved a pumpkin out each in record time and then we had a judging session to see whose was the best. After a few tears and tantrums (mine) we decided that the two pumpkins were "equally good". It was just easier.

It's funny, last night when I was in bed, I saw a weird glow coming from my dressing table, upon closer inspection I realised it was the skeletons! Yes they are even glow in the dark.
3. Disco dancing competition/musical statues/general exercise. Put together some Halloween related tracks, e.g. Thriller, Monster Mash, erm, a few more, and come up with new dance moves everyone has to copy. Happy days.
4. A variation on find the skeleton, buy some eye ball choccies (again from Asda) hide around the house and give each child their own bucket or bag to collect their looty in. Perfecto!
This bag was from Your Design, who personalised it for them, it would be great for Halloween parties and trick for treating, I'm going to keep it for years!
So my Halloween ideas are not very imaginative, what do you do in your family for Halloween?
