While some people consider Halloween one of the best times to join in on parties, parades, and celebrations galore, some people are just not into that kind of thing! There are other ways to make Halloween memorable at home, so no worries if going out isn't really your Halloween vibe. To make October 31 feel special and just as festive, try out some of these ideas that will make you the host with the most.
Taste test all the best Halloween candies.
Start your holiday on an extra-sweet note and put all of this season's candies to the test—taste test, that is. There are tons of new treats this year, like glow-in-the-dark chocolates and green KitKats. Here are the top 10 candies in the USA
It's a classic Halloween activity for a reason. Grab pumpkins for the whole family (groceries stores tend to sell them if you don't feel like venturing out to a patch). Then you can either free-hand a design or print out one of the many templates floating around the interwebs. Be creative and let your children’s imagination take front and center!
Wear your costume—yes, still!
Just because you're at home doesn't mean you shouldn't step out in your funniest, spookiest, or cutest costume. Have an at home costume contest, see who comes out on top! Cat ears are highly encouraged, or go vintage and cut some holes in old sheets for a ghoulish ghost!
One of my favorite Halloween memories is dressing up my dog Midnight every year in something silly. She was a real team player letting us put silly hats and capes on her. And every year my brother and I would stand next to her in her costumes and take pictures! What fun Halloween traditions does your family have?
