Spook-tacular Treats

Happy Halloween

October 20, 2020

Halloween is right around the corner, and so is all the spirited fun! Although we won’t be able to do all of our typical festivities, there are still a lot of good times to be had. See our list of ways to make Halloween at home a spook-tacular experience.

Treat Yourself

If there’s one thing Halloween is known for, it’s tasty treats! And while candy is number one, there’s nothing like adding something a little savory and scary good to your menu. For an appetizer that will haunt your memories in the best way possible, try this mummy brie complete with crackers for a snackable time that’s as tasty as it is festive. Get the recipe.

Get Crafty

It’s all about that eerie lighting. Grab the kids, some craft paper and a pair of scissors and get to work creating a Halloween paper lantern masterpiece. Whether it’s a ghost, jack-o’-lantern or bat, you’ll have all kinds of fun, and the kids will have something to show off to the neighborhood and be proud of. Learn how to get started.

Carve a Pumpkin

Halloween simply wouldn’t be complete without some sort of carved pumpkin. Pick a few up from the store or head to your local pumpkin patch to grab your gourds. Next, let your imagination run wild with a design all your own, or get inspired with the help of some creative templates and jack-o’-lantern ideas. Happy carving!

Spin a Web

We can all agree that spiders and Halloween go hand in hand, but did you know you could make a festive spider’s den using your own? Shop for some lightweight spiders at your local store or make your own using foam and pipe cleaners. Then just spread some fake webs in the corner and let your eight-legged friends loose for all to see! Get the details.

Begin the Hunt

A scavenger hunt is the perfect way to keep the kids engaged and in the moment on Halloween night! Start by gathering some spooky items, whether it’s a fake spider, bag of candy corn or pre-printed cards. Hide them around the house (but remember to keep track of where they are!) and create clues and a scavenger hunt checklist for your little ones to check off—one finding at a time. And of course, don’t forget the candy prizes! Get your hunt started.

Whether you just plan to snack on some treats or put your best pumpkin forward, there are more than enough ideas to make your at-home Halloween one to remember!
