As you’ll all already know, we don’t really DO Halloween in this house, with no trick or treating and prefer to just have a spooky tea instead to amuse the small people.
This year, however, we have actually been out and about as we got invited to a Halloween party of someone in the 5 year old’s class.
Instead of handing out sweets to trick or treaters, we’ve been:
- apple bobbing
- chocolate apple making (toffee apples but with chocolate and funny faces rice paper mouths/eyes on instead)
- eating lots of party food
- admiring the flashing disco lights
- and making and colouring masks.
It made a nice change to be out. I’ve actually been to TWO Halloween parties, ever, now.
This was my first children’s one, and I’ve been to an adult one as well (so this time I had to be sensible :-) )
So, next year, we’ll have to plan on being out for Halloween again. At least it meant we got to miss nearly all the trick or treaters….
