5 fun, free and fang-tastic Halloween-themed activities to do with the kids

Halloween crafts for kids

Time to get creative.

When it comes to festivities, I have one vibe: Lean in hard. As in; embrace it – fully.

I mean; why the heck not? Doesn’t life have enough regular days as it is?

And so now, in my house, we are full on Halloween. I am talking broomsticks and pumpkins and banners and window stickers and pie baking and a big, giant autumn wreath on my front door.

Autumn is on, and we are living for it.

And with the afternoons being longer and darker, sure now is the perfect time to get stuck into making some more Halloween-themed art or how about taking to the neighbourhood streets for a little autumnal scavenger hunt?

4. Bobble head black cat

Long ago, people believed that black cats could shift into human form to act as spies for witches. And whether you believe the old tales or not, there is no denying that black cats look suitably Halloween-y.
