Halloween Decs for Kid’s Bedrooms
Halloween for kid’s rooms
Rooomy brings you top Halloween decorations and activities
to help make the most of a spooky half term with your children
After a year of scuppered celebrations, all the birthday parties, weddings, anniversaries and more that have been missed, and we know Christmas is awaiting us at the end phew. But let’s not forget that Halloween is coming up at the end of the month, yay! Are you like me and decorate during the day of the 31st? I always have great plans for pumpkins, but everything ends up a little last minute. Or have you found yourself following in the Americans footsteps going all out with the decs early?
Well this year after all the indoor parties ( I had a birthday banner up for 6 months, I’ve told you before I don’t win any interiors or organisation awards) and with Halloween falling at the end of half term, I think it’s the perfect opportunity to have a little fun and make the most of the decs with the girls. If you’re thinking this sounds like a plan to you then I’m here to help with some great decorations ideas for you to check out. Each will be able to be stored and re used for all your Halloween celebrations to come plus there is some helpful pumpkin decorating advice, especially if you have any left-over paint from this year’s interiors projects.
More and more birthday pics are featuring balloon arches and they look fun but either a lot of effort to make it look good yourself or expensive to outsource. Well Meri Meri have this sorted for Halloween, bringing you a balloon garland PLUS hanging bats at the bargain set price of £25!! If you love party balloons, then this is the Halloween party decoration for you! This easy to assemble kit of 40 balloons creates a terrific balloon display featuring black, silver, orange and pre-filled confetti balloons and 8 fabulous hanging bats.
Little Peg House
All the classic Halloween characters in one little peg doll family. These characters will at home in your child’s room or anywhere else in the family home. Not a pink fairy in site, it’s just not Halloween is it? I think kids’ can get away when they’re 2/3 years old. These little faces bring colour and cuteness at a scary time. You will be able to start building your Halloween decorations collection just like your Christmas ones.
Decals are great as they don’t damage the wall cab be put back on their paper rolled up and brought out again next year, they allow you to add details to a larger space creating the spooky atmosphere eve quicker. This pack comes with bats and pumpkins in different sizes and you can choose the colours for each of them, you can go traditional black and orange if you want or you can style them with your décor, fun!!!
Little England Gifts
Kid’s names in wooden letters have been popular for several years now and over the last few Christmas has joined in, so why not add Halloween into the fun? Just like the peg dolls they will go into your collection and come out every year. BOO is the perfect little touch for your kid’s room, it’s not too scary for the little ones and will still be a fun addition when they’re older and wanting more of a spook these will be a timeless edition to your collection.
Garlands make such wonderful borders and wen decorating it looks awesome when some height can be added to the space, it takes the eye on a journey round the whole space, that way all your hard work get noticed and is thoroughly enjoyed by the beholder. This garland from Nelly’s Treasures is cute, big, bold and I love the colour palette. It is a complete bargain for £7 which also means you could buy a couple, what a treat!
Whilst you are decorating and probably trying to get some work done during the half term then this gorgeous colouring book is just the ticket, adorable doodles that your child will love to fill in. Each design has been hand drawn and comes on its own page so you can cut it out and put it on the wall or send to someone, perfect to add to the decorations. The book is A5 size so it will fit perfectly in your bag for those days when you are on the move. Printed on quality card and wrapped in a bellyband your little ones (and you!) will have hours of fun. You can also add on a pack of Stib Positive Worded pencils in either a mini travel pack or jumbo pencils.
If you want to make more of your DIY skills and if we’re in lockdown over half term then there may be time for a few more crafts activities in the build up to the big night. Pumpkin carving is always great fun but it also take a lot of effort and some parents are worried about the safety side, especially for younger ones. Painting your pumpkins is a wonderful way to bring the festivities into the home plus they are big too, so very satisfying. Kid’s can have free reign on how theirs looks which is wonderful autonomy for them. And the toddlers can always join in by adding to yours, Ava did this a few years ago now and it was a really lovely afternoon chilling in the kitchen, music on and having some fun with the paint.
If you want to join the kid’s I highly recommend it, it’s great to get creative I think as adults we don’t spend nearly enough time doing the things we loved as kids. Plus, it’s perfect modelling for the kid’s too! If you want some tips on how to make them look great then Emily of Doodle Moo has your back plus some awesome free printable stickers that you can cut out and stick onto your pumpkin to enhance your design. Emily recommends using up any left-over interior paint and acrylics always work well too. Always leave time for coats to thoroughly dry before adding details on top, making this a great project for half term!
And one last treat, I highly recommend are Emily’s Halloween pinatas, another fun project and a great game for the big night, something for you to prep yourself or you can get them to decorate their own. They might even like to decorate, fill with a few sweets and your child could drop it off to a friend during the half term break, it’s always nice to get surprises and everyone get to enjoy the gift of giving, passing the positivity forward, which we need to do more than ever right now.
There you have it, great decoration to add to your Halloween collection and some fun craft projects for the break. If you go forward with any of these ideas I’d love to see your pics you can email them in or tag us on social. If you use any of Emily’s please give her a shout out @DoodleMoo
Have a wonderful Halloween and stay safe.
Ps You know it’ll be the C word next, I’m just saying, only two pay slips to go, eek!
