After an extremely hot summer, autumn just arrived with a vengeance, just in time for the beginning of October. Time to get out those witch costumes and ghoulish decoration!

Halloween is nigh!

I’m so excited that Halloween is now officially a public holiday where I live. Well, of course not because of Halloween, but so what? The glorious result is the same for me. 😉

For 31 days of Halloween fun, I’ve collected 40 ideas of things to do until the big day, some shorter activities for busy days, some quicker crafts or activities that take a few hours to do or make, and some more time-consuming activities for days off:
