Bake/Decorate Halloween Cookies
Cookies aren’t just for Christmas! Baking is not only a fun activity for the whole family, but it’s also a great way to get creative and decorate cookies with fun Halloween-themed shapes and designs. You can use cookie cutters in the shapes of bats, ghosts, witches, pumpkins, and more. It’s easy to whip up some sugar cookie dough and let your kid’s imagination run wild with frosting and sprinkles!
Play Ghost in the Graveyard with GLOW STICKS!
Ghost in the Graveyard is one of the best traditional Halloween games that will never go out of style. To add a glow-in-the-dark twist to this classic game, grab some glow sticks and play outside after dark. The rules are simple, one person is the “ghost” and everyone else has to hide. The ghost tries to find and tag the other players. If the ghost tags someone, that player becomes the new ghost. Don’t forget the spooky sound effects!
Read Spooky Stories by the Campfire with Smores
Nothing says Halloween quite like spooky stories around the campfire. Gather around the fire and read some scary stories that will send shivers down everyone’s spine or just some kid spooky tales! Don’t forget to bring some s’mores to roast over the fire for a delicious snack. It’s the perfect way to combine a classic Halloween tradition with some tasty treats!
Carve Pumpkins and Decorate for Halloween!
No Halloween season is complete without carving pumpkins! You can make it even more fun by having a pumpkin carving party with friends and family. Set up a station with carving tools, markers, scoops, and templates, and let everyone create their own unique and spooky pumpkin. Once the carving is done, light the candles and enjoy the glowing pumpkin display!
Family Costume Contest
Last but certainly not least, a family costume contest is a Halloween staple. Challenge your family members to come up with the most creative, funny, or scary Halloween costumes. You can set a theme for everyone to follow or let everyone go wild with ideas. Have everyone vote to decide who wins the best costume award!
