The spookiest time of the year is just around the corner! And although 2020 is already scary enough we thought we’d share our top tips for enjoying a safe Halloween. Whether that’s a Halloween at home this year or your own Halloween holiday in the UK there’s plenty you can do to make some great Halloween memories with all the family!

Spooky treasure hunt
Get your Halloween costumes on an get outdoors. Hunt round your local neighbourhood or around your park for the items on our downloadable scavenger hunt sheet. Make sure you have some sweets at home to reward yourself for finding them all when you’re done!
Visit a pumpkin patch
It wouldn’t be Halloween without pumpkins! So, this year, find your local pumpkin patch and go and hunt for your own before carving your own Jack-o’-lantern to place in your window.
The great British weather isn’t known for being bright and sunny at this time of year, so keep the kids busy indoors with our downloadable Halloween colouring sheets.
Zoom fancy dress competition
Just because you can’t party with all your friends face-to-face doesn’t mean your yearly Halloween traditions can’t carry on. Get your friends to don their best Halloween costumes and join you on a Halloween zoom call. You can even add your own Halloween themed cocktails and spooky quiz to add to the fun!
