Halloween Special Edition

It’s Halloween Time!  

Welcome to our special spooky Halloween SCOOP!

My family loves Halloween. Walk through our front bone-yard full of tombstones, witches, ghosts and skeletons and straight into the house where you will find an art gallery of ghastly ghoulish moving pictures! Needless to say, Halloween is a big deal around here!

Are you looking for fun family activities to take in this haunting season? In this spooky Halloween edition of The SCOOP you will find something for all ages to do throughout the next week and a simple, yet spooktacular craft to decorate your very own ‘haunted house’.

Whatever your plans are, don’t forget to be safe:    

  • Ensure your little goblins and ghosts have glow sticks on them so they can be seen walking the neighbourhood. 

  • Remind them to trick or treat one side of the street and then the other.  Not to criss cross the street where cars maynot see them in their costumes.

  • Before your kiddos dig into their Halloween haul, an adult should check their candy and throw away any unwrapped pieces.

Have a wickedly fun week and enjoy all the trick or treaters!

Join in the spirit of Halloween and donate to the Annual Reverse Trick-or-Treat at the Children’s Hospital! 

Each year the first-year medical students dress up in costumes and deliver Halloween candy to the kids-in-care at HSC Children’s Hospital, making their night special.  

They are collecting donations now until Halloween. You can donate candy or a cash donation to help make the night fun for everyone! Donations can be dropped off directly at The Children’s Hospital.
