Halloween 2020 Personalised baby clothes

During Covid-19

During this time it’s very hard to stop you little ones from enjoying Halloween and a lot of people might not be going trick or treating or answering the door to trick or treaters so here are a few things that will hopefully keep Halloween fun for the children.

Halloween Scavenger Hunt at home- You can hide some spooky things round your house and garden if you have a garden then do a checklist for your child or children to try and find them. Things you could hide could be chocolate coins, Halloween sweets, a pumpkin, ghost, even little spooky signs.

Carving Pumpkins- You can carve pumpkins with anyone indoors that lives in your house hold or if your child or children have a friend that lives nearby they could sit outside with the right amount of distance between them and cut the pumpkins together. If your indoors to make it fun, you could do a challenge to see who can carve the scariest pumpkin or the silliest pumpkin.

Online Halloween party- You could do a Halloween dress up on face time or zoom so you child or children can still see their friends and dress up.

Food- You could make food look scary. Maybe do hotdogs as fingers, Ghost biscuits or witches and toffee apples.

Decorating your home- maybe get your child or children to make some decorations for the house that way it will give them something to do and they will be proud of it.

Going out- As the children can’t knock on doors you could take sweets with you and in their costumes every time they see a house decorated or with a pumpkin outside you could give them a sweet. And if you did not want to walk around doing that if you have a car you could take the children out in the car and get them to look for the decorated.

Costumes- When your child or children is picking a costume you should try to encourage them to get a costume that has a mask or is face covering.

It’s a hard time for children right now so try to make it as enjoyable as possible for them by getting creative and possibly make some new family traditions.

Here is a recipe for mum or dad to enjoy a nice homemade pumpkin spice latte.

You will need

  • 2 Cups of milk
  • 2 Tablespoons pumpkin puree, taste to see just in case you might want to add more
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons of sugar (try 1 first just to see how sweet you want it)
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ Teaspoon pumpkin spice, (little bit extra for serving)
  • ½ cup strong hot coffee
  • Whipped cream for serving.

Start by heating the milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, pumpkin spice and vanilla extract on the hob.

Then combine the pumpkin spice milk with the coffee. Then divide the mixture between 2 mugs and add the whipped cream and if you have extra spice sprinkle it on top.
