I used the think Halloween was not really an Aussie thing. That was until I had kids and understood the deep and abiding love of dress ups. Now our household is getting ready for a festivity of spooky fun. Here’s my favourite dress-up & decoration options so far.
So I’m out & about, looking for budget friendly halloween costumes and decorations and there’s more options available this year then I’ve ever seen before.
I’ve been checking out Toys R Us, they have very cool spooky spider web wings ($3.99). I like it that they come in boy friendly colours which is especially great for your little toddler. And there’s also little toddler capes with bee, cats & lady bug designs ($14.99) which look comfy and you can toss them into the dress-up box when you’ve finished.
Big W has a selection of costumes for Adults and lots of party supplied. They have great paper lanterns ($13.75) and pumpkin decorating kits ($5), but I can’t got by the brain jelly moulds ($3.50), delightfully disgusting!
Your local Woolworths store has a small and reasonably prices selection of Halloween fun including bat bunting ($3), cool Halloween swirl decorations ($4), gummy eyeball and body parts lollies for trick or treating ($5) and … wait for it … whole pumpkins! (3.50 pr kg or about $17.50 each).
