For the second year running, Sydneysiders are wondering – what’s the go for Halloween this year? Is Trick or Treating on? The general consensus is that there won’t be much happening by way of traditional trick or treating, but there are still plenty of ways to ensure the kids get in the spooky spirit on Sunday 31st October!
While door-knocking might not be on the cards, dress-ups, lollies and friends still can be! Why not arrange a petrifying picnic at one of the following local picnic locations.
What’s that, you ask? It’s when you create a treat bag of goodies for a friend or neighbour and leave it on their doorstep. That’s a pretty close second to trick or treating, we think!
Halloween Scavenger Hunt
Parents, we got this in the bag. Think Easter egg hunt and replace eggs with lollies and chocolates. Too easy! Add in some notes and instructions on finding the next hidden treasure for some extra fun. Here’s a great Halloween Treasure Hunt by North Shore Mums.
Decorate Pumpkins or Pineapples!
If you cant get your hands on pumpkins, pineapples can be just as scary and even more delicious 😋
Dress up at home!
Get out the face paint, play the monster mash and get into the Halloween spirit, even just for 20 minutes!
