It’s Halloween! Trick-or-treating and costume parties are our favorite Halloween traditions. These might be off the table this year to maintain social distancing as a precaution against COVID-19. However, that doesn’t mean that we’d have to tell enthusiasts that we had to cancel Halloween. So, we gathered alternative ways to find this holiday spooky and fun.
5 Ways To Celebrate Halloween Inside Your Own Home
Create a fun scavenger hunt that you can either play with your kids or let them play it alone while you play a referee. Keep the clues as universal as possible. Print it out and hide them around the house, and be on your spooky way. Give the participants the first clue and let them figure it out to search for the next one.
Just because you’re spending Halloween at home doesn’t mean you can’t roast marshmallows for s’mores and share scary stories. Pop some graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate in the microwave or oven for some s’mores and gather around to tell scary stories from the oldies.
Scary Movie Marathon
It’s time to have a fright night where we stay awake all night and watch scary films. Watch tons of horror movies about maniacs on the loose or a group of friends trapped in an isolated cabin or a virus that turns humans into brain-eating zombies. If you’re looking for scary films with under-hyped dispositions that later surprised its viewers, click here.
Family Photo Shoot
Pick a family costume theme. Then, decorate a part of your house to fit that theme. Set up your camera on your desired angle and take some portraits. Wait for the likes to pour in on Instagram and voila!
A Spooky Feast
It’s not every day you can have fun with how your food looks like. Put cranberry juice in a beaker, bake a cake, and mold it into a witch’s hat or a skull. Bake brownies and decorate it to make it look like a cemetery. The possibilities are endless!
