7. ‘Dook’ for apples

Also known as Apple bobbing, this is a game played at Halloween. A tub is filled with water and apples are added.  The apples are swirled around in the water, to make it harder to catch.  Either use a fork and drop it from your teeth whilst hanging over a chair or use your teeth and try to catch one in the tub.

8. Photo Booth

Even fi you don’t plan on dressing up and have no props there are plenty of face changing apps that you can download onto your mobile phone to take some scary photos. Search for “halloween face” on the Apple App Store to find a selection for iPhone.

9. Make a turnip lantern

Go back to tradition with a turnip lantern.  It’s a lot harder to carve than a pumpkin, but looks a lot more scary!

10. Watch some scary movies

Switch the lights off and place some candles in the turnip lanterns and get ready to watch some scary movies.  How about the original Halloween film from 1978, Carrie or The Shining?
