Decorate Your House

Set up a Halloween Photo Booth

Photo Booths are always fun and are not only for birthday parties. Set up a photo booth at your house and take turn taking fun Halloween pictures.

Some fun suggestions are Halloween Pumpkin Ghost Castle Maple Backdrop Banner Decoration; or Halloween Photo Booth Props with Photo Frame, which are suitable for adults and children; Trick or Treat Booth Photo Frame, which is big enough that can hold 3-4 people at the same time.

Have a Halloween Movie Night

Watch family favorite Halloween Movies like The Addams Family, The Boy Who Cried Werewolf, Spookley the Square Pumpkin, A Witches' Ball, The Witches, or Monster Family. Make some popcorn and use Mini Zombie Head Popcorn Boxes to make it even more fun. For a great list of spooky Halloween Movies, see our list of 22 Spooky Halloween Movies to Watch With Your Kids!

Halloween Candy Hunt

Just like an egg hunt for Easter, send the kids hunting for candy in your backyard, front yard, or even inside the house. Get creative, decorate your backyard and hide the candies in fun places for your kids to find. You can even buy Creepy Halloween Candies and spook them out a little.

If you don't want to give candy to your little ones, then you can send them hunting for little Halloween Toys or cute Geddes Boo Buddies Pencils.

Create Halloween Treat Bags or Buckets

Get the kids to work and create Halloween Bags or Buckets for friends, family, and even neighbors, and surprise them with Halloween Treat Bags or Buckets full of Halloween treats or assorted toys. You can make it spooky for your friends by leaving the treats at their door, ringing the doorbell, and running away!

Halloween Piñatas

Halloween Pinatas are just as good as trick-or-treating. Kids love trick-or-treating because they get lots of candies. Now instead of going door to door, they will have to swing a bat, one at a time, until the pinata busts open and empties all the candy. If you are concerned about the safety of little kids, a pull-string pinata is a great option.

Make Halloween Cupcakes

The kids will definitely get high on sugar on Halloween with all the candies anyway, so why not make them involved and bake some Halloween Cupcakes together? You can then decorate the Cupcakes with cute Halloween Cupcake Toppers. To find a list of spooky Halloween treats to make with your kids, click here.
