Seven Fun & Creative Activities to Do in Singapore this Halloween

It’s the spooky time of the year again, and it’s about time to get ready for Halloween if you haven’t! Here are 7 fun & creative activities to do in Singapore this Halloween, other than trick-or-treating.

1. Hold a Halloween Scavenger Hunt

Contrary to popular beliefs, scavenger hunts are not only for Easter, they can be used for celebrating Halloween too! A Halloween Scavenger hunt is perfect for a Halloween party. You can use individual themes such as ghosts, mummies or vampires. Think of some decent hiding places and prepare some prizes for the winner.

You can design the scavenger hunt to be more than just finding hidden halloween pictures, you can include clues to make the scavenger hunt even more entertaining. The clues can include having a picture of the location of where the clue is hidden, or some word puzzles! If you can’t come up with any clues yourself, you can always get some great ideas from the web.

2. DIY Your Halloween Costumes

Dressing up is the best part of Halloween. You can always buy Halloween costumes but why not make use of everyday items and get creative with DIY Halloween Costumes? Classic ghost costumes can be made by cutting and glueing stiff black felt on white sheets. You can also make a simple witch costume with black leggings, skirt and shirt with broomstick made out of sticks.

If you want to be a little more creative, make LEGO costumes out of cardboards, plastic cups and paint, you can make LEGO car and train costumes also out of cardboards and paint. If your child is into sweet tasting things, you can make a cupcake costume by adding pom-poms on a white shirt. You can even have your kids help design and construct the costumes together. Doing such  crafty activities with your little ones can be another way to enjoy Halloween.

3. Make your own Halloween games

If you are holding a Halloween party, you can make creative halloween-themed games of your own. You can play “poke the pumpkin” where you put prizes inside orange cups with napkins rubber-banded over the tops and have kids poke through the cups for treats and prizes, or even “tricks” like toothbrushes. You can even decorate plastic bottles/cans into mummies, ghosts or anything you like and let your kids play bowling with it.

Other classic party games include bingo, Pinata or “Pin the tail”. You can have various themes when it comes “pinning the tail” – “pin the tail on a black cat”, “pin the spider on the web”, or “pin the bow on the skeleton are some fun examples. If you are creative enough you can come up with new Halloween party game ideas of your own too!
