Go on a spider hunt
Spiders are spooky all on their own, so why not go on a spider hunt to put you in the mood for Halloween? Explore the outdoors with the family as you look for different sized spiders, or have a competition to see who can find the most complex designs!
Although you should be careful not to harm their habitats. Just as you wouldn’t want a giant spider traipsing through your home, they don’t want a person running through theirs.
Fun fact: There are plenty of superstitions about spiders – many believe they’re lucky, or can warn you if a witch is nearby. According to mediaeval folklore, seeing a spider on Halloween was actually the spirit of a loved one.
Host a Halloween party
Halloween parties are a brilliant excuse to get friends and family together for a spooktacular night of fun and games. Enjoy tasty treats like toffee apples and pumpkin bread, and wash it down with a fruity punch from a nearby cauldron.
There are plenty of Halloween party games to play too, like broomstick races or pin the hat on the witch.
