Halloween Ideas for the Family

With Halloween just around the corner, it's time to get those decorations up and those costumes picked out!  There are so many fun activities for celebrating Halloween that the whole family can get into.

The quickest way to get into the spirit of the holiday is by decorating your homeThe whole family can participate and your hard work will be more than a little rewarding when seeing the joy it brings to your children's faces. Depending on your preference (and budget!) your house can have a few decorations put up to set it apart from the rest of the year or you can go Halloween-crazy and fill your home with seasonal decorations-its up to you! 

Another Halloween activity to try this year is to make a scarecrow. It is easier than it sounds and a ton of fun for the kids. Just stuff some old clothes with hay and use a pumpkin or old pillowcase for the head. You may want to take this activity outside-it can be messy! 

Have a family movie night featuring a scary movie, even if you have little ones there are still lots of not-so-scary Halloween movies out there.

Buy some candy corn at the local grocery store for candy corn necklace making, or just to eat! Popcorn balls and caramel apples are also delicious holiday treats. 

Maybe try something new and throw a Halloween party. Neighbors, friends, and family can all gather together to celebrate by bobbing for apples and carving pumpkins - the adults can dress up too! 

Visiting a haunted house is a great way to spend a weekend night out for families with older kids. 

Fall is an eventful season and getting in the spirit of Halloween is a great way to bring families with children of all ages together to carve pumpkins, drink hot apple cider, decorate and more!
