Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate this spooky season than by transforming your outdoor kids playhouse into a haunted hideaway? Decorating a playhouse for Halloween can be a fun and creative project that your children will love - decorating and playing!
In this blog, we'll share some spook-tacular tips and ideas to help you turn your playhouse into a Halloween wonderland that will delight and frighten all who dare to enter.
1.Choose a Theme
The first step in decorating your outdoor kids playhouse for Halloween is to choose a theme. Whether it's a classic haunted house, a witch's lair, a pirate ship, or a friendly pumpkin patch, having a clear theme will guide your decorating decisions and make the process more cohesive.
2. Spooky Lighting
Enhance the eerie atmosphere with spooky lighting. You can use string lights, lanterns, or even LED candles to create an enchanting glow. Orange, purple, and green lights work great for Halloween. Place them strategically around the playhouse to cast eerie shadows.
3. Creepy Decorations
Deck out your playhouse with Halloween decorations like cobwebs, plastic spiders, and skeleton bones. Hang a witch's broomstick, add a cauldron, or even place a faux coffin nearby to set the scene. Don't forget to scatter some pumpkins for that classic Halloween touch.
4. DIY Halloween Crafts
Get your kids involved in the decorating process by making DIY Halloween crafts. Create paper bats, ghosts, and black cats to hang from the playhouse ceiling. You can also design spooky signs with messages like "Beware" and "Enter at Your Own Risk."
Designate a corner inside the playhouse as a costume station. Hang up various Halloween costumes for your children and their friends to try on when they visit. It'll make playtime even more imaginative and fun.
