Top tips for outdoor family fun and games this Halloween

Now that the autumn leaves have started to fall, summer might seem like a distant memory. But fear not! October doesn’t have to mean battening down the hatches and staying indoors until Spring. EasyGazebos has got you covered for outdoor fun all year round and with Halloween fast-approaching, we’re taking a look at how a pop up gazebo can help keep you and the family dry this Halloween.

If you’re having a halloween party or want somewhere for the kids to stay dry during messy Halloween activities, then now might be the perfect time to buy a gazebo. Here are our top tips for outdoor fun and games this Halloween!

Embracing traditions

Apple bobbing is one of the most well-known Halloween activities and this tradition is said to have originated way back to the Roman invasion of Britain, where trying to bite into hanging apples was part of Celtic festival celebrations. Nowadays it’s done with apples floating in water, so to avoid a soggy carpet it’s a good idea to give this one a go outdoors. 

Pumpkin decorating

If you want to encourage the kids’ creativity without covering your kitchen table in paint and pumpkin pulp, setting up a pop up gazebo in the garden is a great way to keep the fun outdoors- and being outside makes it all the more spooky too. Get messy pulling out the pulp and helping the kids carve, or set up some paints and stick-on craft bits and get creative. 

Ghost hunting & scary stories

If you like to make Halloween a real scare-fest then turn your gazebo into your garden base-camp for activities. Sit and read ghost stories by torchlight or put on a Halloween picnic and keep your eyes and ears peeled for scary goings on. 

EasyGazebos are available in cool colours and your waterproof gazebo can be used all year round. Our special edition purple and black Carnival MK7 Royale models look great with some pumpkins, lights and Halloween bunting! You can even come up with your own decorations to blend in with the rest of your house’s spooky theme.

Our pop up gazebos are both sturdy and easy to assemble in just a few minutes with no poles or connectors, so you can make use of your waterproof gazebo all year long, whatever the weather. You can also opt for our original Carnival T7 which has a full set of sides included for extra protection from the elements. View the full range of pop up gazebos here.
