We love a themed bath!
We set about making a spooky themed bathroom to relax in, we swapped the normal lightbulb for a red one, cut out bats from black card and stuck them to the wall, hung some plastic skeletons and chains from the shower curtain rail and put up a plastic scene setter over the window. We finished with some battery operated candles, some yummy treats and a glass of slime! (some green fizz)
We used red bubble bath for our blood bath and you could also use some glow sticks for some glo fun too or jelly bath for a proper slimey dip!
Hers how ours looked with minimum effort 🙂
We headed to the woods for some spooky fun, we had our own ghost hunt after I had pre placed some paper cut out ghosts in the trees. We visited the library and chose some books, took our pop up tent & feasted on some yummies whilst reading our stories by torchlight. Once we had finished I managed to scare the hell out of the kids on the way home, I disappeared into the bushes after telling them a spooky story of someone who had died at the rope swing oak tree, I emerged from the bushes a few minutes later screaming at them to RUN! Sure enough they ran all the way home leaving me behind. We had great fun although I did scare myself….
Here’s how we got on…
I headed out before dark and pinned paper ghosts to the trees..
I bought a jar of value pickled onions to use as eyeballs
we decided to make our own loot giving monster! Using a box, some expanding foam filler, paint, battery operated fairy lights, 2 ballpit balls & a bowl of sweets we created a monster for our trick o treaters to brave. Dare you plunge your hand into his ferocious jaws and delve into the pit of his fire burning belly for your monster?!
This activity was done by Elis, 9 with a little supervision.
Our main item was a cardboard box and some expanding foam filled, we used some we had kicking about in the garage but cheaper versions can be picked up in pound stores.
