BEAR Nibbles sent us a fabulous Trick or Treat Halloween activity box for both Noah and Isla to enjoy. They both had a different activity that contained different flavours of BEAR Claws. They even had limited edition trick-or-treat glow in the dark stickers inside the Claws boxes. Perfectly spooky for this time of year!
We all do it. No matter how well we think we have events planned out, we always forget some small aspect that seems like everything is ruined without it. A Halloween party our children for example. Unless we want sugar-infused kids running amuck with nothing to do, we better have something fun to entertain them before the party turns into a real terror. Here are five, quick, easy and fun last minute ideas that you can use this Halloween.
Between the candy, costumes, and parties, Halloween is a holiday that can take a surprising toll on your bank account, especially in our house! If you want to get in the spirit by dressing up your house in spooky finery, but want to make sure you have money left in your pocket for Christmas, here are a few tips to help you save on the creepiest, coolest Halloween décor.
With Halloween being on a Friday, with people at work and children at school, what better excuse than to spend the weekend sticking and glueing in true Halloween style! I got some fantastic spook-tacular craft kits from Baker Ross to entertain the children this weekend, Isla loved her witches broomstick very much.
Last year we didn’t really get involved in carving the pumpkins too much with Noah, Isla was a dot and would not have understood what was going on, but this year it was a different story. I am very looking forward to our next Halloween because I will make sure that our pumpkins are carved perfectly with some great characters on them. Noah and Isla would love that.
I love being creative with my baking, I couldn’t care less if they tasted horrible – I just enjoy making the pretty little things and decorating it all. I usually get hubby to do the baking of cakes as he is great at them, I love decorating them. So we make a good team. This time, I did the baking too and they did taste great. The kids loved this Halloween themed cake pops. I got the idea from Dr Oetker and the great thing about this recipe is decorating the cake pops doesnt have to be perfect, so the kids will love getting involved.
We love dressing up in the Constant household, and if you saw my husbands #icebucketchallenge recently you will see where it all stems from, we have a dressing up box with lots of fun items in it but the best outfits are ones we were recently sent from Jokers Masquerade. Jake and the Neverland pirate and Tinkerbell – amazingly adorable outfits for my little ones.
So Halloween was yesterday and you have lots of Halloween themed goodies to eat up over the weekend, so what do you do with it all? We were sent some of the new flavoured New York Bakery Co. bagels: Cranberry and Orange. Just the packaging in itself looks Halloween themed. There is something spooky about the Orange and Black colour combo at this time of year!
CLOSED A POM-BEAR PRIZE TO TAKE THE HORROR OUT OF HALLOWEEN PARTIES To celebrate the return of its frightfully tasty limited edition Halloween themed Pickled Onion flavour snacks, Pom-Bear are giving visitors to the Bauer Radio website the chance to take the horror out of organising a Halloween party, with everything you will need from decorations to costumes and of course great tasting snacks!
Halloween was great fun this year and Isla’s first, Noah dressed up as Dracula that Daddy got him last year and Isla was a skeleton that Nanny & Grandad bought her. I think she liked her outfit, I know she probably didn’t even notice anything was different, bless her, but I thought she looked very cute and the suit was really cosy. It was a cold Halloween’s day and in Cornwall it was chucking it down, so I am glad she had a nice warm outfit to snuggle in. It was funny though as soon as I took the outfit off – she had black fluff all in between her toes! It made me chuckle. How can you be scared of a little beaut like this?
