Getting ready for Halloween with The Fort Shopping Park

It seems impossible that we're at the end of October already and getting ready for Halloween.  As it's half term this week, we're off to The Fort Shopping Park in Birmingham to get our halloweeny things ready for the weekend.

We'll be taking the kids on a small (and supervised) trick or treating adventure and will be following it up with our own spook-tastic night at home, so I'll be looking for a range of supplies.  I love these Witches Brew and Candy Corn Yankee Candles from Clinton cards.  They're £18.99 each but Yankee Candles smell lovely and last for ages!

Toddler girl and our son both need to be kitted out in some creepy clobber – Clintons also has some great outfits available, and I love this Werewolf costume, although I wonder if our son might be a bit scared by it! 

I love this Batman t-shirt, just £9 from Next for toddler girl, and as she's growing so fast I can get more wear out of it after Halloween too.  The bat wing hoody from New Look would go brilliantly with it.

I love all the accessories around too, and these two TY Beanies from Clinton cards are great for clipping on pumpkin treat collecting buckets.  I think toddler girl would love them and feel sure they'd stick around for long after Halloween!

And while I'm shopping I'll definitely be heading to Starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte to get myself in the Halloween mood while husband goes off to Poundland to stock up on sweets and treats for our kids and all the other trick or treaters!

I'd love to know what you're up to for Halloween - are you going trick or treating?

  1. Max has a Werewolf costume this year, but we got it from Tesco I think and it was quite mild, he think's he's dressed as the Wolf from 3 pigs - I'll go with that :)
