Jade Warne has joined us at child mags blog this week to be Guest Instagrammer in the countdown to Halloween.
Get some killer ideas for a trick or treat filled kids’ Halloween party styled by Jade and follow our tips to host and decorate your own spooky party celebration.
Put an Aussie spin on a carved pumpkin by carving a scary face from a pineapple. Place a candle in its open mouth for extra wow factor! Boo!
Spell out scary and playful words with balloon letters.
Serve blood red cordial in glass milk bottles. Decorate straws with paper bats or plastic spiders by gluing them to the side of paper straws.
Ice and decorate doughnuts with ghoul faces using sweets and coloured icing.
Popcorn is a fast and bulk-friendly option for a treat. Pop on some kids Halloween movies and fill paper party cups with popcorn for them to feast on.
Choose a Halloween outfit that your kids can continue to wear after the spooky celebrations. Like t-shirts and jumpers with creepy characters and monster patterns.
