The History of Halloween

Halloween, derived from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, marked the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. It was believed that on the night of October 31st, the boundary between the living and the dead blurred, allowing spirits to roam the earth. To ward off these spirits, people lit bonfires and wore costumes. Over time, these traditions evolved into the modern Halloween we know today.

Spooktacular Halloween Craft Ideas for Kids and Adults

  • Pumpkin Carving

Carving pumpkins is a classic Halloween activity. To carve a pumpkin, start by cutting off the top and scooping out the insides. Next, draw a spooky face or design on the pumpkin and carefully carve along the lines. Don’t forget to place a candle inside to illuminate your creation. Parental supervision is necessary for little kids.

  • Wood Signs and Door Hangers

Unleash your creativity by painting eerie phrases like “Beware!” or “Enter if You Dare” on wooden signs or door hangers. Use vibrant colours and spooky imagery to add a touch of Halloween spirit to your home.

  • Face Painting

Face painting is a fantastic way to transform into your favourite Halloween character. From witches and vampires to ghosts and skeletons, the possibilities are endless. Use water-based face paints and brushes to create intricate designs on your face.

  • Candy Dish Decorations

Decorate your candy dish with Halloween-themed stickers, ribbons, or paint. You can glue tiny plastic spiders or bats to the dish for an extra spooky touch. Personalize it to match your Halloween decor. If you need some accessories take a look at our Craft Store.
