The Best Streets for Trick or Treat in Adelaide

Visit the Adelaide Trick or Treat Facebook page to find out which Adelaide streets are going large for trick or treaters this year. Please make sure to only knock on houses displaying a Trick or Treaters welcome sign. Be respectful to those not wanting to participate.

 Trick or Treat Etiquette – The scary seven

🎃 : Halloween is not compulsory. If you hate it, and you don’t want to participate that’s more than fine. Turn your front light off and post a friendly note on the door letting people know not to knock. Just don’t poo poo on the people who think it’s fun (like us)
We’ve made up some printable signs for you to put on the door. Click on the one you want to download and print at home.

🎃🎃: As above, please respect those houses not participating and please remember your manners!

🎃🎃🎃: Kids, please trick or treat in a group and take an adult or responsible person with you. It’s way more fun and way more safe! Don’t ever enter anyone’s house, even if invited and also please make sure you watch out for cars when crossing the road and stay on the footpath where possible.

🎃🎃🎃🎃: Let’s tone down the sex and turn up the scare for the costumes. Try and be an example for the kids, flash the peeling zombie skin coming off your face rather than boobs and bums!

🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃: Offer wrapped lollies and chocolates. A bowl of unwrapped lollies with a thousand kiddy hands passing through it is a whole nightmare of it’s own.

🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃: Go easy on the healthy “treats” It’s trick or TREAT not trick or sultana.

🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃: Have fun! Don’t feel pressure to buy the most expensive costume – have fun making one at home

  • First of all #winningpun on my post title, arm and leg....halloween.....ha ha ha get it. #mumjoke. We've trawled the internet looking for some Halloween inspo that doesn't include a trip to the costume hire shop, doesn't require any great sewing ability (a BIG bonus for me) and can be mostly put together with bits and pieces around the house. And the big tip PINTEREST is your best friend right now - literally THOUSANDS of costume ideas and instructions on how to DIY. I know there are a few Halloween haters out there who don't like this "American-ised" (which is actually not American but Celtic) tradition, but I love it, and my daughters REALLY love it so that's enough for me. Please share your families Halloween costumes with us, I'd love to see them. https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/355432595599649520/ I mean everyone's got an old sheet lying around don't they? https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/1266706135847778/ The old Mummy costume - always a winner https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/57913545197552358/ Got an old umbrella and some fairy lights lying around? https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/17521886041402322/ Love the headless doll detail https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/19844054596334850/ We love the movie Coco. https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/814166438888738001/ Something cute for the kids who don't like to dress up too scary. https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/140315344631760357/ Spaghetti and Meatballs And of course if ordered…

  • Halloween - you either love it or loathe it! But there's no denying it's growing in popularity every year in Australia. With so much marketing in the shops these days Mr 4 has been so inquisitive about what it is, but mainly how he to can get candy (thanks YouTube). So I decided this would be the year we go all out with Halloween celebrations and no better way to get in the spirit than with some pumpkin carving! Firstly, a few disclaimers - There is a lot of adult assistance required so it's something you will need to do together. Also it's way messier than it looks so prepared to get dirty. Don't be fooled by the YouTube clips that claim they just scoop the centre out with a spoon - we fast learnt this is NOT reality! Be prepared to be elbow deep in pumpkin seeds! Also pumpkins only last a few days once cut so don't cut too early if you want it to still be around on the the 31st. First step is to draw up your pumpkin with the face you'd like to create. We spent some time googling different images before settling on one.…
