How to have a fun and safe Halloween this year
Can you believe it’s already October? We’re officially in the last quarter of the year and Halloween is just around the corner! The shops are filling up with pumpkins, spooky decorations and sweet treats and we can’t help but get excited.
Although, the current Covid- 19 pandemic has disturbed many of our annual traditions and celebrations, many people are still looking forward to Halloween this year.
With many people still affected by the pandemic. And many countries still on lockdown we’ve put together a few tips on how to have a safe and fun Halloween from home…
Halloween themed cinema – Create an at home cinema. Pick a variety of your favourite spooky movies and watch them together with your family or close friends. Remember to choose movies that aren’t too scary if you have kids. And opt for cartoons instead. To set the creepy mood further make sure the room is decorated with some spooky decorations and everyone is in the fancy costumes.
Halloween Hunt – Instead of going out trick or treating this year, a great alternative is creating a Halloween Hunt in your home. This is a fun alternative and the kids will love it just as much. Hide a bunch of treats in various places of your home and create a spooky map with clues for your kids to follow.
Spooky Dinner – Host a Halloween themed dinner. Create eerie themed dishes that are delicious and spooky. Make sure that everyone comes dressed up in their outfits to keep the mood. For some ideas on Halloween themed dishes check out our recipes!
Spooky Craft Night – If you’re planning on staying home this year having a spooky crafts night is a great way to celebrate with your kids. It’s fun and interactive. And allows your kids to use their imagination and creativity to create crafts that you can use as decorations. Instead of spending money on decorations, why not make your own? This is also a great way to save some money.
Halloween themed games night – There are a number of fun games can be adjusted to suit Halloween. A few examples include pin the nose on the pumpkin and Halloween charades. Playing games is a great way to celebrate safely. Get creative when planning what games to play and don’t forget to come dressed up.
