5 Budget Activities For Halloween

Halloween is now a matter of days away!!

Unfortunately though, and like many things, the cost can soon spiral. Many of you will be having or about to have term and the cost of keeping the kids entertained can be pricey! So, if you want to do something Halloween themed but stay on budget, here's 5 things to try!

Carve a pumpkin!

Pumpkins can be found for as little as 69p over at Lidl! 

Selection of orange pumpkins

Carving kits vary from 50p to £1 dependant on where you shop but a knife and spoon will do but you'll obviously need to supervise!

Decorate some spooky biscuits! 

Co-op currently have a kit that includes biscuits and icing for just £2.00!

Get creative and decorate these spooky biscuits, and maybe enjoy them with a hot chocolate or glass of milk for an indoor mini picnic.

Try going Halloween spotting!

Take a look at the Halloween Spotters post I did last week.

Pop on your coats and have a walk round your local area and see how many things you can spot!

Go trick or treating!

When I was little a witch's hat and a bin liner dress went a long way!

Grab a hat and broom or a wand from Poundland and pop the kids in some dark coloured clothes and you have a spooky witch or wizard! 

Watch a spooky movie!

A few weeks ago I wrote about my favourite scary movies!

Why not settle down for a movie afternoon with a bag of popcorn and some sweet treats.

Halloween doesn't have to be expensive. Only ever spend what you can afford and with these low budget ideas I hope there's something you can do to enjoy Halloween.
