Any parent with young children will know that Halloween is a much anticipated event! My 9 year old has been painting bat pictures and pumpkin faces for weeks now. We've already bought fake cobwebs to hang up at the window and I reluctantly spent a tenner on a bowl that a hand comes out of when you press a button!
We find that the older children get, the more they expect you to give away at trick or treating. And do I really want a trick played on me? Not likely! So I'll probably spend another tenner on a big tub of sweets too.
So are your little horrors looking foward to Halloween? And what will you be doing with them or taking them to?
