Halloween is a festival, which is celebrated in many countries on the 31 of October. It is a day that we are all meant to remember the dead. The most famous of Halloween traditions is: trick or treating which is where children go from house to house and ask a question: “trick or treat?”. The owner of the house has a choice: they can give a treat to the children in the form of candy or the children will play a trick on the owners house. The owners nearly always give out treats, as they do not want any tricks played on them or their property. Children will be dressed in a Halloween costumes when trick or treating. Today we will make Spooky light figure lantern which can be used on Halloween.
