My kids have been asking for daily countdowns to Halloween for about two months now so it’s fair to say they’re a little bit excited?! When I told them we’d been asked by Poundworld if we could share a little bit about their Halloween range and would they be interested in helping out at all you can imagine their answer. We don’t have many shops where we live but we do have a Poundworld and both my kids adore it. All that was left then was to transform our dining room from a chilled out space into a spooky set for a little Halloween party.

Since I told my son I had an idea for an easy zombie craft for kids he wouldn’t stop asking me when we could make it, I did have to point out a few times that sensible things like school and mealtimes do get in the way of crafting sometimes! Both my son who is 6 and my daughter who has just turned 4 had fun making their own zombies with only a little bit of help with the cutting. Of course I had to make one myself because there is no one in this house that’s rocking the mombie look better than I am (when are the kids meant to start sleeping through?!) so mine has the obligatory mum Breton top on and brown hair. Not sure if the kids got the hint though?!  This is a really easy Halloween craft that’s fun to make and requires only the basics including a quick rumble through your recycling bin.

I’m not sure if ghost crafts for kids are supposed to be sweet or spooky but I tend to err on the side of sweet – after all no parent wants to add their kid having nightmares to the ever growing list of why they didn’t get a full nights sleep. With Halloween around the corner these are the most fun ghost crafts for kids I’ve seen this year and I’m sure your children will love them too!

In our hectic, modern lives, many of us focus heavily on work and family commitments that we never seem to have time for anything else. As parents, we often worry or feel guilty that we don’t spend enough time with our children. Spending time with our children is key, not only for their emotional and educational development but also to keep them entertained. However, not all activities are created equal. Sitting for hours, zoning out in front of the TV or computer with our kids is one way to go but is not the answer. In fact, research shows that quality is better than quantity. Try spending quality time in order to get to know them in a whole different light. You will also add joy to your life, relieve stress, supercharge yourself. So, make the most of your upcoming weekend, and enjoy time with your kids.
