Trick or Treat? How to Celebrate Halloween at Home
Happy Spooky Season!
It’s the yummiest, spookiest night of the year, and it’s just around the corner! Although it may look a bit different this year, there’s still plenty of frightening fun to be had at home this Halloween. So how will you be celebrating?
If you’re not sure, try one of our favourite at-home Halloween activities:
Have an Indoor Halloween Hunt
We all know that the best part about Halloween is dressing up and collecting pillowcases full of candy, but who says we can’t do this from the comfort of our own homes?
Let’s break out the candy, scatter the chocolates, throw on our spookiest looks and celebrate what Halloween is about: sweets and treats! Hide your Halloween goodies around the house and send your littles on a sweet scavenger hunt.
DIY Some BOO-tiful Decorations
Nothing builds the spirit like some festive decorations, and is there really a better way to dress up the occasion than with your very own, custom made craft?
Try making some spooky handprint spiders by cutting two handprints from black construction paper. Next, place the handprints side-by-side, wrists touching. Finally, glue the pieces together and add some googly eyes for your very own spooky spider!
Make Some Spooky Slime
For a fun activity that your littles will love long after Halloween is through, get out your mixing bowls and tiny helping hands and get started on your very own spooky slime!
Frighteningly Fluffy Halloween Slime
- Add 3-4 cups of shaving cream into a bowl
- Add in pumpkin orange food colouring
- Add ½ cup of glue to shaving cream and mix
- Add 1 tablespoon of saline solution to mixture and whip!
For an extra festive storing solution, pack your spooky slime into a jack-o-lantern jar! All you’ll need is a clear jar, and some black construction paper to cut out a scary smirk any pumpkin would be proud to have.
Bake Ghoulish Goodies
Gathering yummy sweets from trick-or-treating is a ton of fun, but nothing compares to the tastiness of a fresh baked treat. Especially when that treat was made with love by the whole family!
It may be a bit early in the year for gingerbread men, but what about ginger mummies? Get a little extra use of your gingerbread cookie cutter this year and break out this crowd favourite early! Once your cookies are ready for decorating, try a cream cheese icing to wrap up your mummies nice and snug.
Or for a healthier sweet, try some white chocolate covered strawberries decorated to look like ghosts! Need some extra inspo? Try some of our favourite spooky snacks.
Watch All the Halloween Movies
No matter the time of year, it is literally always a good time for a movie marathon! Gather up your hard-scavenged sweets, or your freshly baked treats and watch a Halloween favourite or two with the fam.
