Halloween has become as popular here in the UK as it is in America. Trick or treating is something kids love to do, and what better way to entertain them afterwards than with a party in a spooky Halloween log cabin. Garden log cabins are much more than a shed. They are so much better than just a summer house and can be decorated to feel like an extension of your home.
Creating your spooky Halloween garden party idea
If you have a log cabin this could be the ideal space to create a spooky Halloween haven for your guests. It’s easy to make it part of your garden party and you can decorate it both inside and out. Get your kids involved in the preparations. They could make spooky paper ghosts and witches. Make some templates they can draw round and cut out.
Decorate your outside space with spooky lights in the trees. You can buy outdoor fairy lights in different shapes such as pumpkins. Imagine how pretty and inviting your Halloween log cabin could look with the warm glow of pumpkin lights in the windows. Imagine a Halloween log cabin that will be the envy of your neighbours.
Make your cabin into an extra spooky hangout by placing creepy cobwebs on the walls. Make bats out of black card and hang them from the ceiling. You can buy ready made Halloween decorations online including these scary but cute fluffy bats. You can also find a selection of cute kids friendly Halloween decorations here
Place signs outside your log cabin door to welcome your Halloween guests. Large cut out black cats, pumpkins, or ghosts can be a fun way to provide a welcoming entrance. Make ghosts by hanging white fabric over balloons.
Halloween garden party ideas games for kids
If you’re entertaining kids, here are a few fun games they’ll love to play. Create a spooky treasure hunt by hiding a few sweet treats in places such as under witch’s hats, inside pumpkins or buried near trees. You could even place clues on signs to make it more fun.
Tell spooky stories. Kids of all age love scary stories, but make them age appropriate. Very young children are more easily scared! Get the children to sit round you in a circle to make it more cosy. Darken the cabin so you only have spooky lighting from pumpkins or fairy lights. You could either tell them a story yourself, read to them from a book, or get the kids to tell each other spooky stories.
Making chocolate apples. Kids will love making their own pretty chocolate coated apples. All you need are apples, melted chocolate, lolly sticks, and hundreds and thousands. Have a competition to see who can make the best one and give a bag of spooky sweet treats as a prize.

I wonder who will be the first one to dare venture outside afterwards!
