Hallowe’en tips from around the web
This year we’re letting go of competitive costume-making and Insta-ready food in favour of minimal prep for maximum fun time. And we guarantee the kids won’t notice the difference!
The messier the better with Hallowe’en food. If Pinterest-perfect bakes are not your thing, these super speedy Earthworm Delights are for you.

Getting wiggy with it
Your kids can be bang on trend this Hallowe’en with a Trolls wig! Just pop it on their head and stick kids in their pyjamas for an instant costume they’ll love.
It’s all about the hat…
If a brightly coloured wig is not your child’s thing, then try a hat instead. Once you’ve got the head gear sorted, the costume is pretty much done, and anything else is a bonus. Try a cowboy hat with jeans, a T-shirt and a water pistol, or a pirate hat with a stripey T-shirt and a drawn-on eye patch and moustache. Easy peasy!
It’s a wrap: DIY decorations
You can LITERALLY wrap anything in bandages, white tape or crepe paper, stick a couple of googly eyes on it, and call it a Mummy. Try juice cartons, jars (with a candle inside for extra effect), or even a whole door!
Make easy ‘Mummy’ Mason Jar lights
If you prefer to give your kids treats that won’t have them bouncing off the walls, these chocolate biscuit baking kits with raw cacao, barley, flaxseeds & no refined sugar are a winner. Cut the dough into stars, bats or ghosts for a Hallowe’en treat!
Word on the street (read: internet) is that all the cool parents are shunning the mini Mars Bars and Cola Bottles this year in favour of… glow sticks! Not only do they provide a sugar-free treat that trick-or-treaters will love, they also help keep kids safe in the dark evening.
