Have some Family Fun with these 5 Halloween Family Activities!
Do you need some ideas for things to do for Halloween?
Halloween is just around the corner which means scary costumes, cool weather, and lots and lots of yummy delicious treats! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and times of year in general! I love to have fun with my friends and family and Halloween is a great time of year to do some really fun activities with your family! Here are just a few things I like to do with my family during the Halloween season to make the holiday more of a family holiday!
Make Your Own Costumes
Costumes are so expensive these days! By the time that you buy the clothing, accessories, and even your wigs you could spend up to $100 a costume and if you have multiple kids, that can break the bank just for a night of fun! It is much cheaper and more fun to make your own costumes! You can get fabric, cut up old clothes you don’t wear anymore and then just buy some simple accessories to go along with your costumes!
Trick or Treating
Instead of just sending your kids out on their own to trick or treat, go with them! Make it a bonding experience. You can even dress up yourself and join in on the fun! Maybe they will even share their candy with you! LOL You can go with them and experience all the scares with them, it will make them more comfortable and you can spend an evening of fun with the family!
Do you have a talent for decorating cupcakes? Here are some fun ones that a friend of mine created. I do NOT have such a talent.
If you have an older group of kiddos you could skip the trick or treating and go for some Haunted Houses! You can be there for each other through all the scares and help each other survive the terror! I am a big fan and proponent of Haunted Houses they’re a great way to celebrate Halloween after you’ve grown out of trick or treating! There are a ton of really great haunted houses all over the country, you can hit up the big haunted houses that are a huge attraction or you could even look for locally made ones that may be located in your very own neighborhood!
Make or bake some fun treats
Aside from all of the candy, I like to make some fun treats like these Bat Sugar Cookies you can see our recipe HERE. Another fun one is candy apples! You can make them with caramel, chocolate, candy, add whatever toppings you would like and everyone can have their own individual kind of Apple! It’s a great way to spend time together and have a yummy treat to follow! I love to dip my apples in peanut butter coating and then add crushed up Oreos, absolutely delicious!
How about our Dirt Pudding or our RIP Brownies shown below? Both fun and yummy.

There you go, here is a few things to make the Halloween season a bit more family oriented! Have fun and be together!
