Happy Halloween!

Did you know? This Wednesday the 31st October is Halloween.

Rohini and her friends are all set to celebrate Halloween – are you planning on enjoying this spooky holiday as well?

Originating in ancient Celtic Ireland, this holiday is most popular is the United States of America but is now celebrated widely in many countries around the world.

There are many Halloween traditions…

Dressing up!
It is popular on Halloween to wear fancy dress. People often dress up as witches, cats, ghosts or even their favourite TV character. What do you think of Rohini, Bugle, Florence and Jackson’s costumes?

Pumpkin Carving
Have you tried making a lantern out of a pumpkin? You can have lots of fun drawing a face on a pumpkin and asking an adult to carve the face into the pumpkin. By putting a light inside the scooped-out pumpkin you can watch its face glow!

Trick or Treat!
On the evening of Halloween it is common in America and in the UK to knock on the doors of neighbours in your fancy dress costume to ask for a treat. Have your trick ready in case they ask to see it! It is very important that you only ever go trick or treating with a parent or adult you know – and always brush your teeth really well after eating all that candy!

Fun & Games…
There are lots of fun games you can play this Halloween if you are having a party. The most traditional Halloween game is apple bobbing. You have to try and get an apple out of a bucket of water using only your teeth. It’s pretty difficult – see if you can do it without getting wet!

So have lots of fun! And click here to check out our recipe for spooky Witches popcorn hands and other fun Halloween activities…
