Halloween Fun!

How do you have fun with your family on Halloween? I was always trying to come up with a new fun activity to do with my kids. One year we did a Mummy Wrap with my Cub Scouts when I was a Den leader. This is where teams race to wrap one of their members in toilet paper to make the best mummy. It was great fun! Is there a favorite game or activity that you do each year? Maybe you'll find a new favorite below!

Here are some fun ways to celebrate Halloween with your family:

  • Have a Jack-O-Lantern carving contest and give prizes for the most creative, spookiest, funniest, etc.

  • See who can make the best DIY costume

  • Play flashlight tag

  • Play flashlight hide and seek (turn off the lights in the house)

  • Make and decorate sugar cookies in Halloween shapes

  • Take some treats or gifts to friends that you know have allergies and have a difficult time with Trick-or-Treating

  • Visit a Haunted House

  • Make up spooky stories

  • Bob for apples

  • Donut eating races: Hang mini donuts by strings, players must eat the donuts without using their hands

  • Read a Halloween book

  • Put on a Halloween play

  • Try face painting

  • play Tic-Tac-Toe with pumpkins (this could be a big or little game depending on the size of your pumpkins)

  • Watch a Halloween movie/show

  • Drink apple cider

  • Host a murder mystery party

  • Visit the corn maze or pumpkin patch

  • Send out Halloween cards

  • Decorate your sidewalk with glow-in-the-dark sidewalk chalk

Go on a Halloween Picture Scavenger Hunt

Walk through neighborhoods either before it's time to Trick-or-Treat (or during) and see who can take pictures of the most items on the list:

  • spider

  • ghost

  • cobweb

  • scarecrow

  • jack-o-lantern

  • scary mask

  • cute mask

  • cauldron

  • Trick-or-Treat sign

  • scary pair of eyes

  • pumpkin that isn't orange

  • sign that says "fall"

  • a spooky tree

  • gourd

  • tombstone

  • skeleton

  • bat

  • witch hat

  • add specific costumes for bonus points Ex: a dragon, a Pokemon, a dad dressed as Darth Vader
