Spooktacular Camping

Halloween is at the end of this month  And I know, it’s an American tradition, and many are against its slow infiltration into Australia….but if you are one who thinks it should stay in the USA, then you may be fighting a losing battle.

The shops have found that it’s a money-spinner.   Children see it as a way to score lots of lollies, so no way are they going to complain about it!

I don’t have any problems with it.  It’s harmless, doesn’t involve much effort and doesn’t need a lot of money spent on it.

So in the spirit of Halloween (and camping), here are some costumes you could try out on October 31st, all with a camping theme……….Enjoy.

S’Mores – very popular to dress your child up as a messy snack.

Whilst we don’t have bears where we camp, you can still go dressed as one, and at the end of the night, its a sleeping bag
