Soon you’ll dress in your spookiest attire and hit the neighborhood to do some trick or treating, but there are plenty of other ways to get involved in the Halloween festivities all month long. From scary to just plain fun, there’s something for the whole family. Check out these 3 ideas below to celebrate this bewitching holiday.
Create a Haunted House
The scare factor is totally dependent on your family, but there’s so much you can do to transform your home. Invite over neighbors and friends and show them your fright fest. Each family member can make their own decorations and play their own role to bring your haunted house to life. Hang up your cobwebs and glow in the dark creepy crawlies to make for a night to remember. Be sure to stock the house with extra candy and some apples for bobbing.
Did you spend all year planning your families’ killer costumes? Then show them off and get your friends together for a costume contest. It’s a fun and playful way to see everyone’s creative, funny, or downright spooky sides. Plus, it’ll give some new ideas and inspiration for next year. And it never hurts to get more candy.
Why not put those carved pumpkins to more use? Create your own mini golf course and use the carved pumpkins as the golf holes. Add some red felt to double as the track and pumpkin tongues. And don’t forget to grab some flameless candles so you can play in the dark! Find the full instructions here from Eighteen25. Halloween just got a whole lot more fun. Happy Haunting!
