10 DIY Ideas / Tips for Your Halloween Party in Singapore
Although Singaporeans don’t have a tradition of celebrating Halloween, more and more locals are joining the band wagon to celebrate this unique festival from the west!
Most children here do not go door-to-door for Treat or Trick, since most neighbours do not have a habit of preparing candies nor know what to do. Instead, we see establishments like country clubs, condominiums, restaurants, hotels and small parties gathering people for Halloween. (Halloween Horror Nights at Resorts World Sentosa is probably the most successful Halloween celebration in Singapore.)
Here are some tips which you can ‘do-it-yourself’!
1) Halloween Decorations
It doesn’t take a lot of effort to decorate your party room with Halloween decorations! An easy source of decoration is Daiso! They have such a wide variety of Halloween decorations, from lanterns to buntings, from banners to props which made me wonder… do Japanese celebrate Halloween too? For those who are not aware what Daiso is, everything in this shop is $2!!! (less than US$1.5!! and it is even cheaper in certain countries because of the exchange rate.)
You just have to be creative and combine them! See an arch which we made entirely out of Daiso lanterns! Include some LED lights (can be bought at Daiso too!) and tada, you have a winning Halloween decorations!
2) Switch off your lights
3) Scary Eyes
4) Fancy Dress Contest
5) Drink Blood anyone?
Buy cranberry juice and pour them into (blood) bags or syringes.
Get green candy floss and call them brain floss!
6) Create a giant spiderweb
Use twine (available for about $1-2 at any hardware shops or Daiso.. this is beginning to sound like an advertisement for them… but it’s NOT!) to create a big giant spiderweb!
7) Halloween Puzzle Game
Here’s a simple Halloween game! Find a halloween poster and cut them into pieces. You have a fringe game in which children have to put them back together in 1-2min’s time. Great game while waiting for all the guests to arrive.
