Go pumpkin mad at your local pumpkin patch

Who doesn’t love the autumnal activity of pumpkin picking? Instead of hitting your local supermarket, make a day of it and visit your nearest pumpkin farm. The endless fields of orange fruit is a pretty impressive sight, and what could be more fun than watching the kids cart around a wheelbarrow full to the brim? Why not visit Windsor Farm in Lamphey to test their new for 2019 pumpkin patch with a variety of sizes and colours available!


Give yourself a fright at Oakwood’s Spooktacular

Take on our creepy clowns, hide from witches, and run away from zombies at Oakwood’s Halloween Spooktacular. With 10 terrifying dates to choose from, including late-night Spooktacular Bites Back on Saturday 26th and Thursday 31st October, there will be frights for all the family. 

But it doesn’t stop there, if you’re not screamed out, why not take on the thrills at Megafobia or the Creepy Crawler. You’ll be guaranteed a day of hair-raising fun.

Take on a Halloween movie marathon

Looking for a more chilled out activity? Grab a duvet, some gruesome snacks and settle down for a Halloween themed movie marathon. From The Nightmare Before Christmas to Casper The Ghost, your little monsters will easily get into the spooky spirit and be entertained for hours. 


Carve a pumpkin with your best rollercoaster face 

You didn’t think we’d forget pumpkin carving, did you? You just can’t beat an afternoon of the famous Halloween tradition. So grab a good spoon, prepare to get messy, and start carving. Why not take on an Oakwood challenge just for fun and carve your best rollercoaster face? We’d love to see the results, just tag us using the hashtag #spooktacular !

If you simply can’t bear the sticky fingers, don’t worry, you can still enjoy some pumpkin fun. Why not try painting your pumpkins instead? It involves less sharp objects (and more peace of mind for the parents) and you can still create some pretty impressive artwork. 


Go on a ghost walk 

Wrap up warm and join your nearest torch-lit ghost walk. Why not visit St Fagans National History Museum to discover the spooky stories of ghostly encounters in the historic buildings of the park. You’ll learn about Welsh superstitions on death, mourning and ghosts, as well as discover why Wales might just be the world’s most haunted country!


Bake a ghoulish batch of biscuity treats

Even the spookiest of monsters get peckish from time to time, so why not organise a baking session of scary Halloween cookies. The kids will love decorating their biscuits with spine chilling designs and you only need a few ingredients to get started. So, what are you waiting for?
