There are a host of local Halloween events for children lined up during the October half term. Milton Keynes mum Susie Lodge has picked out five of them from her fabulous website http://www.wikiplacesforkids.com just for you.
We’re well into the school term now and hopefully we’ve all recovered from the mania of the summer holidays.
But here we go again, another week to fill at the end of the month!
Well, do not freak dear parents, the excitement and preparations for Hallows’ Eve are enough to keep your little people busy, and for the half term break I’ve got a great selection of spooky suggestions to keep them thrilled from skull to claw!
Stanwick Lakes are hosting a wicked week!
There’s an outdoor trail (pictured above), Halloween crafts, an opportunity to meet creepy animals and a new Spooky Lantern Walk event.
This includes crafting lanterns, a guided lantern walk around the lakes and a warm tea (modest charges or donations for some activities).

If you’re frighteningly quick you’ll also get the chance to see lots of fiendish frolics at this year’s Halloween Circus at Frosts Garden Centre.
Bippo and his scarily talented team return once again to startle you with their performances.
Frosts are also hosting Pumpkin scooping all week (pictured top), which comes with a sickly sweet glass of Witches’ Gruel to keep you going! Booking is recommended.
Thrift Farm have a Spooktacular week planned with ghoulishly great face painting, animal handling, games and crafts, pumpkin carving and a chance to meet Thrifty.
There’s also a pumpkin hunt and a best-dressed competition.
