These Seven Spooky Things should keep you well spooked from May 25th to May 31st. Throughout May each week will be themed and this weeks final theme is Trick or Treat!
If you want to add some tricks and treats to your own home then you'll love this weeks SST.
Check out this weeks activities below:
This week is all about Tricks and Treats! So expect candy crafts and makes. Kick-starting the week we're going to be making homemade peanut butter cups!
One of the most popular Halloween candies in America and so it's only right the week is started by making them ourselves. They're easy to make and only take around 15 minutes.
Find out how to make your very own cups right here.
Todays make is this really sweet Jack'o Lantern Trick or Treat bag. It will take a little time to make but it's 100% worth it!
You'll be able to use this year after year too so you won't need to worry about finding another bag each Halloween. Plus why not use this for some light shopping too? Just because it's intended use is a treat bag, does not mean you can't take it out to get groceries.
Find out all the details you need to make your own bag and get stitching right here.
Todays make is super easy, super quick and super fun (also super spooky). These Lolly Pop ghosts can be made with things around the house and would be a great little hide and go treat game for the kids.
All you really need is some paper/cloth, lollies and ribbon. Find out all the details on how to make these quick treats right here.
Continuing with yesterdays ghost theme, today it's less of a make and more of a dress up. Now this one you might want to pin until Halloween or if you're in a decorating mood get dressing up now.
All you really need for this is some white fabric, mini treat buckets and dolls. You can either buy a few cheap dolls or if you have them in your home then you're pretty much all set. Just drape a circle of white fabric over each doll with black eyes drawn onto the fabric and attach a treat bucket to each hand. Easy!
They make great little trick or treater decorations for your porch or just give your doll a spooky make over. This idea comes from Good Morning America and can be found here.
It's nearly the end of the week and today we're going to be doing a little up-cycling. Using old tin cans, paint, tape and card you can make your own tin treat buckets. Use them for trick or treating or just as cute little storage pots.
You can find a template for the wings and all the details right here. Why not create your own designs too and create a whole collection of spooky tin buckets that will also help the planet by reducing waste?
Saturday is movie night this week and once again you've got two films to choose from.
The first is the hugely popular and now cult classic film Trick'r Treat!
Released in 2007, Trick'r Treat was actually only shown at a small number of screens and didn't have a wide release. Over the years the film has grown in popularity with
Your second film for today is the highly enjoyable Monster House. The film focuses on three kids who discover their neighbours house isn't just haunted but actually a living breathing monster. The film is a lot of fun and worth a watch every October!
Your last make of the week, the last make of the month and also the last make of our themed weeks is here... sad face, BUT it's a great one as today we're going to make HOMEMADE CANDY CORN!
This recipe does require quite a few steps and ingredients but once you get the hang of it, not only will you be able to make your very own Candy Corn whenever you like but you'll be able to make it year after year as Halloween treats too!
Find out all of the details you need to make your very own sweet treats right here.
