Outdoor Halloween Yard Decorations – Old Creepy Cemetery Display
There are many Halloween activities for children that you can do to keep them busy in the run-up to Halloween. As Halloween approaches, children get more and more excited, so a few activities to keep them busy can also make your life a little more peaceful.
There are many Halloween activities for children that you can do with them. You can try Halloween crafts, Halloween decorations, Halloween games, Halloween puzzles, pumpkin carving, pumpkin painting, or Halloween cooking.
If you decide to do Halloween crafts, consider letting the kids do something that can also serve as Halloween decorations. That way, children can enjoy the design of their item and then continue to enjoy it when it is displayed as part of the Halloween decoration. Children can make Halloween wreaths from dead branches, spiders, and artificial webs. They can also make ghosts that can be hung from trees indoors or outdoors. Bats and spiders can also be made to stay. Tombstones are also good for outdoor decoration.
Of course, the most popular Halloween activities for children are often those that work with pumpkins or make pumpkins. Children can carve pumpkins to make lanterns, but of course, this requires a lot of supervision. Pumpkins can also be used for other things, so think about painting pumpkins to decorate them instead. Children can also try making pumpkins with paper or clay plates.
Cooking on Halloween is another fun Halloween activity that keeps kids busy and can bring out their creative side. Try giving them the name of a food and see how creative they can be in creating a recipe. Ask them to create “Delicious Baby Fingers,” “Witch’s Brew,” “Eyeball Surprise,” or “Bat Wings. If they can’t think of their own recipes, search the Internet for Halloween recipes.
If you want a quiet moment when Halloween approaches, there are some quiet Halloween activities to keep kids busy and entertained. Try a Halloween puzzle. You can search online or it’s fun to make your own puzzle. Make a Halloween word search puzzle by drawing a grid and placing Halloween words inside it. List the words below and then fill in the empty space with other letters.
Another great Halloween puzzle is to find Halloween puzzles and write each puzzle on a card and then answer a separate card. Children can then try to match the puzzles to the answers. This is another great Halloween game. It can be played as a concentration game in which all the cards are turned face down and the players take turns turning two cards to try to match them. Halloween Riddle Match Up is a fun Halloween game that the whole family can enjoy.
It’s easy to keep the kids busy and happy in the run-up to Halloween if you have some Halloween activities planned for the kids. Some of these activities require you to supervise the children, but there are many that children can do on their own.
http://www.hollywoodhaunter.com/ Here is our Halloween outdoor yard decorations for our home haunt display. We set up a different themed Halloween yard display each year. Take a look at our fun creations but be careful not to awaken the spirits as we take you through the haunted day time tour, Hahahaha! This year we added our first Creepy Mausoleum Facade that was a scary walk through crypt with a crypt coffin and skeleton. We designed and fabricated the run down decrepit entrance columns and brick pillars two go with the scary black rusty PVC Halloween skull fence. We rigged up a couple of outdoor exterior porch and used flicker bulbs and green colored gels to give it the look of gas lamps. We had the arch above the entrance to the cemetery say Mishap Manor a place where people perished from sudden accidents. We picked up some planter urns that looked old and cracked a through-bolted them to the removable lids located on top of each pillar. We used real cactus and plants from the hardware store to go inside the urns and then made little Venus flytraps or man-eating monster plants Audrey from little shop of horrors. We carved and hard-coated more tombstones and graves using a Dremel, files, and sandpaper, repainted the boarded up windows with a glow in the dark paint by Wildfire. Got a couple of fog machines. Added a couple of steel sands to tie real tree limbs together to form real old looking dead trees. We fabricated our first wood toe pitcher coffin prop and groundbreaker coffin with a corpse made from a foam skull and dipped rags in paint letting it dry and harden like a shell. I made a skeleton body with PVC and used rags and melted plastic to cover the pipes. Added several PVC hot glue candles and fun epitaphs. We built a motorized kicking legs prop with a lawnmower over the top of him with mounted colored puck lights which flashed with a chase unit to simulate spinning blades. We added a wiper motor driven flying crank ghost pulley system above the yard with three glowing ghosts from the black lights mounted to the back sides of the entrance columns. A static hangman prop that we hoped to make pneumatic hung from a single gallows prop we constructed. Other props and decor we completed this year was a glowing coffin, web gun to make lots of spider webs to cover the crypt and tombs and last some LED lighting to light up the decorations and haunted area.
