What are you waiting for? Halloween is just weeks away. There is no time like now to start feeling the spirit of Halloween. Here is our list of some great ways to have some serious (and scary…and creepy…and silly) Halloween fun! On your mark, get set, BOO!
Decorate. Have you decorated your home for Halloween yet? It’s time to hang a few bats in your belfry and set those decorative ghouls and goblins on your porch.
Haunted House. At Halloween time, most localities host various haunted venues about the town. From the notorious big attractions to the smaller (and sometimes creepier) local ones, a haunted venue is a sure fire way to get into a Halloween mood! Brace yourself for the ex-FEAR-ience!
Horror Movies. Whether it is at your local theater or in your very own living room, now is the perfect time to find a spine-tingling, creepy movie to get you in a truly horror-able mood!
Scary Books. At Halloween time, lots of creatures are stirring--and you can read about them in a good book! Reading Halloween stories to your kids makes for some pretty awesome Halloween-themed family fun time. If you want to take story time to the next level, try reading or telling some spooky ghost stories around a campfire.
Go to a Pumpkin Patch. Just like Charlie Brown on his legendary quest to see the Great Pumpkin, it’s also time for you to make your annual sojourn to the local pumpkin patch to find that perfect Halloween pumpkin. If you are lucky enough to be able to catch a hayride or wind your way through a corn maze, by all means, stop in for a spell.
Halloween Crafts. Halloween and crafts go together just like tricks go with treats. Check out some ghoully Halloween craft ideas.
Seasonal Foods and Treats. Halloween is a great time to eat drink and be scary. Halloween themed recipes are easy to find online, or you can look for some fun and terror-ific food ideas in magazines or your local market.
Costume Party. You didn’t put out all those Halloween decorations up just to scare yourself did you? It’s time to gather the local boys and ghouls for a spook-fest at your place. C’mon--you’ve always wanted to be the ghostess with the mostest, so now is your chance.
Get into Character! There is no time like the present for a little costume drama. If you need some ideas on how to amp up your chosen Halloween character or costume, check out our how-to video page for lots of really spooktacular ideas!
Carve Pumpkins! Pumpkins lend themselves well to carving out some very good times. Assemble your pumpkin carving tools and have some serious fun adding a friendly (or not) face to your jack-o-lantern.
Take a Look-Back. Halloween is all about making memories that will last a lifetime. Remember the ghoul times from your own childhood? Bet we made you smile. And if that didn’t do it, check out these vintage Halloween pictures from days gone by.
