Fun Halloween Activity and Craft Ideas

When it comes to Halloween, I have to admit to not being the most creative, or particularly inspired for great crafts and activities to do with the kids. It’s not really my ‘thing’, so thinking of spooky or fun Halloween themed things to do doesn’t come naturally! So I reached out to fellow parent bloggers, who have shared some brilliant ideas to get stuck into. My daughter (whose birthday happens to be on Halloween!) is super keen to make toffee apples, so that’s top of our list to try!
