We are quickly approaching Halloween night, and as the date gets closer, our spooky spirit heightens. We can’t wait for the big night of trick-or-treating, but in the meantime, we are enjoying these family-friendly activities!
Pumpkin carving: One of our favorite October activities that the whole family will enjoy is pumpkin carving! Grab the family this weekend and hit the pumpkin patch for an afternoon of fall fun! Head home, fill your cup with a glass of warm apple cider and get to carving those pumpkins.
Halloween Treats: October is the best time to break out your favorite pumpkin flavored recipes! Whether you are a sucker for cupcakes, pies or candy, enjoy some family time in the kitchen and see what spooky recipes you can brew up!
DIY Halloween Paper Lanterns: We love this activity and the kids will too! Line the driveway or sidewalk with the paper lanterns that you create on your own! All you need is a paper bag, scissors and some markers. This is a great way to get everyone involved with the Halloween decorations.
DIY Halloween costumes: Getting dressed up is our favorite part of the Halloween celebrations. And what is more fun is creating your own costumes with items from around the house or a local thrift store! DIY costumes are all the rage, here are a few that you could recreate for the next Halloween costume party!
When Halloween night does arrive and your little ones put on those perfected costumes, don’t forget about staying safe during the activity that historically takes place at dusk or dark. Read up on these 7 Tips for Safe Trick-or-Treating before the family heads out on October 31.
