Over the last four years we’ve lived here, I’ve noticed Halloween has become more and more popular in Germany. While I don’t see trick-or-treating going viral yet, stores have at least started carrying costumes and snacks for the occasion (though sadly, not candy corn).
This year, we’re putting on a small party for some of the kids in our building, and I needed some fun yet simple ideas for food, decor, and activities.
I really can’t justify going to great lengths to plan an amazing bash. My kids aren’t even familiar with the word Halloween or what the holiday really entails. They were too young to remember the holiday in America (and we usually ended up in tinfoil in honor of Chipotle’s free burrito day). Plus, this year we’re busy getting ready to head over to Scotland (yay!).
So, if you’re strapped for time like I am, check out these inexpensive, cute, last-minute Halloween ideas from Pinterest. Have more fun food, decor, and crafts? Leave a link in the comments below!
