It’s Halloween week and we are on half term, yay! On Monday we are going to a local farm to pick our pumpkins and carve them in a special workshop. Here is our photo from last years efforts.
The kids are planning to take their own templates this year to carve. I think last year was the first time they carved alone, I’ve usually done most of the work. I don’t mind but it can be hard work and the mess is horrible. So I’m glad we’ve found somewhere to go and do it, we just bring the carved pumpkins home so no mess, and the kids will be provided with all the tools needed and assisted with their carving.
Here’s Some I Made Earlier
I’ve a big feeling that the templates will be pokemon ones as that’s what they have requested for me to carve in the past.
I don’t think we will be doing much this Halloween. The kitten has to go in for his pre-op in the evening so the kids will have no-one to go trick or treating with. We will probably have neighbourhood kids knock on the door so I’ll have some treats ready for them.
My kids have not really enjoyed dressing up for years now, the Little man is only eight, but he’s never enjoyed dressing up, even though he’s had some fabulous costumes like The Gruffalo and Scooby Doo. So, we’ll leave out the costumes for this year. Maybe we’ll celebrate with a kid friendly spooky movie like Casper and some Halloween baking treats.
Here are some Halloween baking treats we’ve made in the past.
