  • Plan an old-fashioned Halloween party for children with classicgames, such as bobbing for apples and a race to eat doughnutshanging from a string.  Visit a pound shop for fundecorations.
  • Watch a Halloween movie (‘It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown’is a classic). If you can show it outside, even better. If not,decorate the cellar or a dedicated room in the house with aHalloween theme.
  • Read scary stories to your children (the scary quotientdependent on ages) with the lights turned down low, eeriebackground music, lots of orange and black treats, such as jellybeans, and carefully lit candles.
  • Spend an afternoon making fun treats, such as spider cupcakesand sugar cookies shaped like vampires and bats.
  • Have a pumpkin carving party. Asks guests to bring their ownpumpkins and carving tools. As everyone works on their JackO’Lantern, collect pumpkin seeds on a baking sheet.
