Tips for Trick or Treaters
Some of us love Halloween – and some of us don’t. Make sure the evening is fun for everyone by following these simple tips:
- Look for houses with decorations, or at the very least, with the lights on.
- Make sure kids are accompanied – and well mannered.
- Chat to your neighbours about your plans.
- Check local online community groups to see if streets in your area are arranging anything special.
Staying in instead? Try these ideas:
Horror movie marathon
No matter your age, there are scary movies to get you in the Halloween mood.
For kids: We love this list from Rotten Tomatoes with 36 of the best Halloween movies for kids that will give all the scare without any nightmares.
The classics: Time Out has compiled this list of the best Halloween movies of all time – everything you need for a scary session.
It’s not all ghosts and gore – one of the best things about Halloween is the chance to get creative with some baking. We love these meringue ghosts, these classic toffee apples, these cats, bats, and witches hats, and these spooky spider cakes – and that’s just for starters!
