It may not be Halloween yet but once the month of October sets in, many people will get into the mood and start preparing for this holiday. Halloween is just around the corner and this is the time when most people bring out their creative side and even their inner witches or ghouls. As for the little ones, the fun and excitement begins now. For most this may be their best holiday because this is the time for their trick or treat adventures as well as the many costume parties and candy that they usually don’t get during the year.
Halloween costume parties are definitely a lot of fun since everyone can dress as witches, ghouls, vampires, and even their favourite characters or superheroes. Your little ones and their friends can have more fun with the many Whistlecopter toys that are available. You know your little ones will enjoy this season and you want them to have a fun and memorable time; so if you need a few spooktacular ideas and inspiration for Halloween, here are many fun ways to get into the Halloween spirit.
Decorate your Home
The best way to set the mood for Halloween is by bringing out your creativity and decorate your house. Make it look spooky with cobwebs, jack-o-lanterns, skeletons, spiders, and other things related to Halloween; plus, you may also give your front lawn a graveyard scene to remind everyone that Halloween is coming. Decorating will be a lot more fun and cost-efficient if you create DIY Halloween decorations together with your children.
Prepare your Halloween Costumes
Preparing the costumes you will be wearing for Halloween is one great way to set the mood for the occasion so while it’s early, begin shopping for your costumes to avoid the crowd during last minute shopping. You may also purchase costumes online and if you or your children wish to dress as a character from Star Wars, consider getting some of Whistlecopter’s Light Saber Sword for props.
Carving pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns have been a tradition since a hundred years ago and is still a favourite practice today. This is why getting into the spirit of Halloween will be much easier by practicing this tradition. Aside from setting the Halloween mood, carving pumpkins is also a fun activity for both children and adults since it brings out one’s creativity and it somehow alleviates stress. You may choose to carve the basic design which has the triangle eyes or if you wish to challenge yourself, browse online for pumpkin carving ideas to find a wide variety of designs you can do.
Bake Halloween-themed Treats
Treats are a favourite among children so bake some Halloween-themed sweets and goodies for them to munch on while enjoying Halloween. Instead of purchasing treats from the store, you can search online for healthy Halloween treats recipes that you can bake for everyone; you can also share these with your neighbours or you can also serve these during your Halloween party.
Have a Horror Movie Marathon
On a cold night, cuddling up together in blankets while watching horror movies is perfect especially when you want to get into the Halloween spirit. Whether you love horror and thrillers, or if you have younger children and prefer to watch something lighter than scary movies, you can definitely find something that will be perfect for your Halloween movie marathon. Browse online to find some of the best horror movies and make your movie night perfect with popcorn to munch on or you may also delight in some tasty homemade Halloween-themed treats.
Host a Costume Party
While some people believe that trick-or-treating is only for children, pretending to be someone else such as their favourite movie character. Wearing costumes and holding a costume party is the best way to show your love for Halloween. To make things even better, practice your skills in cosmetology by adding makeup to match your costume; with makeup, you can create fake scars, wounds, and even decaying skin.
For additional fun, you can also host a Star Wars themed costume party and encourage everyone to dress as one of the characters in the movie. For games, you can have a sword match just like Star wars and use the Light Saber Sword from Whistlecopter as props to make everyone feel like they are imitating the battle scenes in the movie. What makes Whistlecopter’s Light Saber Sword a cool toy is that it features eleven bright LED lights with three settings; also, the Saber Sword’s handle emits lights which make it really special – you will not find any LED sword that has brighter lights than this.
Whistlecopter’s Light Saber Sword also includes batteries. Moreover, this toy is also safe and long-lasting since just like every other toy from Whistlecopter, the Light Saber Sword is also made from durable and non-toxic materials. With this, anyone can have fun playing with Whistlecopter’s Light Saber Sword without having any worries.
