Halloween is nearly here and while it's going to be a strange one this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, families are still finding ways to have fun on the spooky night.

Loose Women panellist Stacey Solomon has come up with a brilliant idea on how to trick or treat with her three children in a safe way. Instead of risking knocking on other peoples' doors, Stacey and her partner, presenter Joe Swash, are going trick or treating with their kids at home! 

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the star posted a photo of tubs of sweets and wrote: "I know we might not be able to trick or treat this year but me and Joe will trick or treat indoors and let them come to each door in the house and we will fill their buckets."

Stacey has bought her Halloween sweets already!

That's such a great idea! We can just picture Stacey and Joe hiding behind every door in their house, giggling with bowls of sweets – the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, perhaps even the airing cupboard!

You never know, this idea could turn out to be even more fun than normal… plus you stay nice and toasty indoors.

Stacey and Joe love having family days out with the children

Stacey returned from the shops with quite the Halloween haul, including fun 'hand cups' for the boys, spooky-themed cake decorations, glow sticks and orange candles.

Her son Leighton is also getting in on the ghoulish goings-on, by making rice crispy pumpkin cakes! Stacey shared clips of his culinary creations on her Stories and they look so delicious.

Leighton's cool pumpkin treats

Leighton melted mini marshmallows with rice crispies and added some orange food colouring. Then he squished the mixture into balls and added some broken green refreshers for leaves and chocolate for stems.

We're really feeling the Halloween vibe now!
