For the past few years I have been making the kids baskets for each holiday. You can see some of our previous ones here. I'm not quite sure why but I didn't make a Halloween basket last year, however I did make one for Amelia the previous year which you can view here. There's something about putting a themed basket full of goodies together that makes it so satisfying. I love going out and picking up lots of little bits to surprise them with. I left it a bit late this year but have finally got round to putting it together whilst I had both of the kids out of the house.
So here's what I've put in the kids Halloween basket this year:
The kids do already have a lot of Halloween books but I thought I'd pick up a few more to add to their collection. I also bought this Peppa Pig Halloween activity book a few years back so thought I'd them another one and then we can take it on the plane next month if they've not finished it.
These projector torches are from Tesco and I thought they would be great for when we go out on Bonfire night, I had to buy two otherwise they'd just argue. I picked up some of these light up balloons whilst in Tesco too.
I am thinking of throwing a little Halloween party for the kids so picked up these skeleton plates, napkins and straws from Molly Meg. The balloons are from M&S.
How cute are these Halloween tumblers!? I picked them up a few weeks ago whilst in ASDA and they were only £1 each!
I actually bought this Jelly Cat kitten for Amelia for our holiday next month but thought it was quite Halloweeny so included in the basket.
Of course a themed basket can't be complete without some themed socks! I picked up the Frankenstein ones for Harry from M&S which come in a pack of 5 of 6 with similar designs and the kitten ones are a pack of 5 from John Lewis.
I wasn't going to get the kids Halloween clothing or costumes this year as we don't go trick or treating but I saw this sleep suit in Tesco the other day so had to buy it for Harry and it was only a fiver!
And last but not least we can't forget the chocolate! These are all from Tesco.
Are you making your little ones a Halloween themed basket this year? I'd love to know!
Get ready for Halloween...
