It’s two weeks to Halloween!
Halloween is big in the US… They really know how to do it properly!
We’ve been getting ready. The decorations are up. Costumes have been chosen.
The kids are excited :)
Last year we got into the spirit (a little!) and put a few decorations on our porch and in the hall. Houses around us went all out, the decorations were amazing! So much time and effort put into creating fabulous displays for intrepid trick or treaters.
This year, we have gone a little bit further… Joined our neighbours in creating a suitably creepy destination for Halloween night.
The hall is decorated, wonderfully orange and glowing come night time. Windows have been covered in gel clings. There are pumpkins on the porch. A headless skeleton hangs, welcoming the postman!
Spiders have been busy on the bushes and porch. Gravestones have popped up in the front garden. Spiders are everywhere…
We have completed our first Halloween craft – decorating craft pumpkins, with paints and stickers. The temptation of trying the ‘glow in the dark’ paints proved too much, so the pumpkins still look rather pasty! Hopefully they will actually glow…
We have Halloween biscuits to bake, cupcakes to make and crafts to do. Parties, costumes and Trick or Treating are still to come. For the next two weeks it’s going to be all about Halloween!
