We played games - bowling spooky ghosts from this post, pin the spider on the spider web....
Here they are, colouring in their spiders before trying to stick them onto the web... hilarious!
And a game of find the skeleton bones in the back garden.This was in lieu of trick or treating - we don't really do that in Australia.
(Oh yeah, the fancy dress costumes didn't last long - with the exception of the fairy in the group.)
When they had collected them all, they exchanged them for sweets.
And a quick shot of part of the table before the guests arrived. Quick and easy. But effective.
