1. Haunted Dinner

  • Whip up your favorite meal, but add a Halloween twist.
  • Feel free to make elaborate Halloween treats or simply decorate your food to fit the theme.
  • For example, decorate cupcakes as spiders or wrap hotdogs in puff pastries to make mummy dogs.

    2. Halloween Dance Party

  • Create a playlist of fun or spooky music and dance the night away.
  • Don’t forget to add Halloween classics like “The Monster Mash” and “Thriller.”

    3. Halloween-Themed Game Night

  • Play Halloween trivia or add a Halloween spin on games like tic tac toe and bean bag toss with some decorations.
  • Host a virtual Halloween game night with online games so you can play with friends and family across the country.

    4. Scary Movie Marathon

  • If your family is older you can have a movie night featuring your favorite horror films.
  • Younger children can still get in on the fun by choosing family-friendly movies.
  • Don’t forget Halloween snacks like popcorn with candy corn.

    5. Make Halloween Crafts

  • Spend your Halloween making spooky crafts.
  • Try your hand at a Halloween wreath or a floral arrangement.
  • Or, keep it simple with paper bag ghosts or making witches' hats out of paper.

    6. Hold a Face-Painting Party

  • Grab some inexpensive face paint from the Halloween section and paint each other’s faces.
  • Hold a contest to see who comes up with the best designs.
  • Easily remove face paint with a gentle makeup remover or baby oil.

    7. Carve or Paint Pumpkins

  • Pumpkin carving is a classic Halloween tradition.
  • If you don’t want to use carving tools, opt for painted pumpkins instead.

    8. Decorate Halloween Treats

  • Build haunted gingerbread houses using your favorite Halloween candy and treats.
  • Bake and decorate cookies using Halloween-themed cookie cutters.

    9. Build a Haunted House

  • Turn your home into a haunted house.
  • Have each family member create their own “wing” of the haunted house.
  • Go through the haunted house individually and try to scare one another as you visit different wings.

    10. “Ghost” Friends or Family

  • Buy or make ghost-themed bags — such as a white paper bag decorated as a ghost.
  • Fill the bags with goodies and treats your family and friends will love.
  • Deliver the treat bags to family and friends by leaving them on their doorsteps.
  • Be sure to include a note that they’ve been “ghosted” and ask them to pass on the haunting by delivering treats to their loved ones.
