Celebrating Halloween 2020 Style


Choosing a spooky costume, carving a pumpkin, going to parties and of course trick or treating are all the things that make Halloween so much fun. 

To keep everyone safe, this year, some of those traditions may have to look a little different. Here are our top tips for a Safe and Spooky Halloween as well as a FREE safety poster for your door. 


Community Event - Morley Pumpkin Trail

Running right through until Halloween in Morley Town centre, there are 20 pumpkins to be found.  Grab your form in the shops and the WINNER will be announced and will receive a fantastic arts and craft prize and some TANG-TASTIC tasty Halloween treats too!! 👻




Pumpkin Carving

Here is one Halloween tradition that will continue and is safe and fun for everyone. The Spruce Crafts has some fantastic pumpkin carving ideas for kids


Virtual Halloween Party

Usually, it's so cold little ones have to wear a big coat and we never get to see their costume - this year stay warm and party online with friends and family.

Including :-

  • A fancy dress competition 🧙‍♀️
  • Musical statues (with spooky music of course)
  • Pumpkin carving competition🎃
  • Face painting as fast as you can -
    • Choose a referee to keep time and a judge to declare the winner.
    • Decide on one design for everyone to paint (pumpkin for example) 
    • In pairs (one pair per household), paint your partners face as fast as you can.
    • The referee can decide on the time allowed (keep it short) and when the time is up - 'PAINTS DOWN!'
    • Look at the painted faces on-screen (hilarious) and the judge can decide on the winner🎃



Trick or Treat - the 2020 way!

Neighbourhood Halloween Trail - Spot The Pumpkin🎃

What you'll need:|

  • little ones will need a bag or bucket
  • parents you will need a bag of spooky sweets.

Walk around your neighbourhood or areas you know love to decorate.  Challenge your little ones to SPOT THE PUMPKINS - for every pumpkin they spot they can pick a sweet from your bag🍬

This is a fun and safe way to see the decorations and still collect sweets. Remember, if you see other families doing the same to keep your distance. 

We'll be decorating as always, but we won't be encouraging trick or treaters with a polite poster on our door to wish them Happy Halloween. Drop to the bottom of this Blog to get your free poster.

Hunt For Halloween Treats

Hide sweets and treats in your home and in your garden. Give the little ones a bag or bucket and it will keep them busy for a while - long enough to put your feet up and grab a cuppa.

Spooky movie night

Full of sweets and time to slow the celebrations down, snuggle up on the sofa with your Halloween sweets and watch a not so scary Halloween movie.

We love Ghostbusters, The Adams Family, Casper and The Nightmare Before Christmas but be sure to check the movies are age-appropriate for your little ones. (The original Ghostbusters still scares me - I mean the lady in the library😵🙈)




And of course, we couldn't write about Halloween and not mention our My 1st Halloween Mini Sessions. One of our favourite seasonal sessions and we're almost fully booked. Running on 24th and 28th October - drop us an email for details and availability.
