Halloween this year will of course be different, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t celebrate, especially if you have little ones. This is the time to show them the spooky magic of Halloween by having fun at home!

This year Halloween falls on a Saturday, so you’ll have even more time to enjoy a day of fun-packed activities.

Decorate your home

Nothing will get you in the Halloween spirit more than decorating your home. You can even re-use last year’s decorations or create your own by having a fun Halloween arts and crafts session.
