Halloween is the night of 31 October to 1 November
On 31 October lots of children dress up in scary costumes and masks and go from house to house asking for sweets or else they will play tricks, which is why they chorus 'trick or treat' as they go around.
At Halloween, people decorate their gardens, windows and balconies with hollowed-out pumpkins, with cutouts for eyes, nose and sharp teeth to form a scary grin, illuminated from the inside with a burning candle. The idea is that the illuminated pumpkin will frighten off the evil spirits.
Open the PDF template and print it out on your printer. Then simply cut along the dotted lines and stick on the feelers. Cut the eyes out along the dotted lines as well. When you're finished, thread a rubber band or tape through the two dark dots so you can tie the mask to your face – it's probably best to let your parents help you with this.
