Halloween Half term bucket list

It’s not long now until half term arrives! I’m actually dead excited (get it) for this half term, I’ve got lots and lots planned, not to mention that I really do love this time of year. It’s fun, it’s spooky and it usually comes with less stress than Christmas (though I swear I adore Christmas).

I thought I would put together a little bucket list – things that we’re planning to do, some free, some not! Let’s gooooo!

  • Pumpkin picking – obvs the top of the list. We’ve chosen to go to Spillmans Farm this time, the kids asked to go back to a place we went to just outside of Thirsk last year but it wasn’t as good as I hoped and this is meant to have lots of stalls, activities and more. It should be a pretty full morning!
  • Pumpkin carving – of course.
  • Eating pumpkin soup whilst watching a spooky movie outside – I have a projector I grabbed from Amazon! We have watched a movie outside before but this time we will have some cosy soup, big socks and hot water bottles!
  • Harry potter forbidden forest – this is in Cheshire so I appreciate it might not be the one for everyone, but it’s on our list and I can’t WAIT! I’ll be sharing on instagram, but it’s the forbidden forest set up at Arley Hall & Gardens.
  • Trick or treating – Edith has talked about this none stop! We’ve made plans to go with friends and enjoy a bit of fun together!
  • Tell ghost stories in a homemade den – super fun and keeps them entertained for hours making the den, playing in there and then telling spooky stories!
  • Apple bobbing – such fun, the kids love it! Easy to do in a big sink if you have one or bucket outside to minimise mess!
  • Bake apple or pumpkin somethings – yum!
  • Have a spooky breakfast together – delicious and when there is no rushing around a family breakfast can be easier than getting everyone together for a family meal at dinner! Pumpkin cinnamon rolls.
  • Make some paper bats to decorate the house – super cute and easy to make, you just need some black card and a bat shape.
  • Cinema date – can’t beat them and with Rons Gone Wrong and Addams family 2 out, it’s a great time to go!
