Even though we may be home for Halloween this year, that doesn’t mean it needs to be dull! We’ve rounded up our favorite ways we’re all planning to celebrate at home with our families.
Spooky family movie night
A few of our favorites Toy Story of Terror, Curious George: A Halloween Boo Fest, Hotel Transylvania, Coraline, and the classic The Nightmare Before Christmas
Make crispy treat pumpkins
A super easy and festive treat! Follow the classic recipe and add as bit of pumpkin pie spice, a little vanilla extract and if you’re really in the spirit some orange food dye. From there, just roll them into little pumpkin shaped balls, top with a chocolate candy (mini peanut butter cups are our fave) and enjoy!
Here’s a fun and active way to celebrate at home is with a scavenger hunt! Hide either treats, goodie bags or little trinkets around the house and create a list of clues for your littles. The great thing about this activity is that you can make it as simple or challenging depending on their age. Break out those pumpkin trick or treating bags for the hunt!
Virtual costume party
I know, we’re all exhausting from the virtual meetings, but this one is fun – promise! Arrange a video call with your friends and family for your kids to show off their costumes, laugh, and share treats! Feel free to join in on the fun! 😉
(Not too) Scary story-time
Set the mood with dimming the lights, lighting some candles and of course having some festive fall treats. You can either read from your favorite spooky story collection (we love Pretty Monsters: Stories by Kelly Link, you can grab as an ebook!) or take turns telling your own make believe stories! Especially fun with imaginative little ones.
Make caramel apples
A classic and fun memory from childhood, who doesn’t love a caramel apple? Feel free to cheat with store bought or even with apple slices and caramel for easier snacking.
Need dinner before the festivities? We got you, boo.
