Halloween Fun in 2022!

Trick or Treating is back in full swing for 2022.

Costumes along with spooky house and garden themes are so much fun. October 31st falls on a Sunday so a nice day of fun can be planned rather than the after-work rush.

Here are some ideas to plan for an alternative Halloween for Kids and Teens in 2022.

Let’s get Spooky!

Halloween Dress Up

No Halloween is complete without a costume. Why not pick a theme for the family………………Zombies are fun to create for teens while younger kids love to dress up as their favourite super hero. Face painting enhances a Halloween costume, if you are looking for inspiration and tutorials, check out our Face Painting article HERE.

House & Garden

Get some community spirit going by asking your local Residence Association to suggest everyone working together to create a Halloween spirit for the kids by all houses making a special effort this year to mark the occasion. Window designs are quite easy to do, check out some designs HERE.

Trick or Treat

Trick or treating can be done safely now, still using sanitiser if you like. Giving and taking wrapped treats and standing away from the door can give space and reassurance to the caller and home-owner. If you prefer to stay home or only trick or treat among friends houses, you could make it exciting by decorating different spots in the house with fake cobwebs and spiders and hide treats for the kids giving them a fun Halloween hunt. Teens still enjoy trick or treating, why not light a fire pit - enjoy some Halloween s'mores and create some garden spooks? Never too old for a Halloween scare! Do not judge teens coming to your door!

Halloween Baking Day

Any one of these adorable Halloween cupcake ideas will easily add some fright (and sugar!) to your holiday festivities.
