Family Fun on Halloween Weekend: 4 Fantastic Ideas

Family Fun on Halloween Weekend: 4 Fantastic Ideas

Halloween fun doesn’t have to begin and end on the 31st. Since Halloween is on a Saturday this year, you have the whole weekend for fun family Halloween activities like games, crafts, cooking and movies.

Ghostly Game Night

Whether in-person or virtual, games are a real crowd pleaser. Fill a jar with Halloween candies like M&M’s, Skittles or Reese’s Pieces and have players guess how many candies are in the jar. You can also play Bingo using candies as markers. Be sure to pick up a few goodies to reward the winners.

Creepy Craft Contest

Put some candy in your crafts this Halloween. If you’re celebrating virtually this year, use hard candies to make a sweet and spooky Zoom background. Picture frames hand-decorated with candy are an easy craft and a sweet souvenir of the season. Even your smallest little ghost can help with Halloween baking. DG Easy Meals has plenty of sweet and spooky recipes. And of course, it’s not Halloween without a pumpkin. We’ve got everything you need to make your pumpkin really pop. Check out all the fun ideas at DG Crafts.

Spooky Movie Marathon

There are so many great Halloween movies, you might have a hard time choosing just one for your Halloween movie night. To up the spooky factor, take movie night outside with a sheet and projector or just a TV and an extension cord. Whether you’re inside or out, make sure you’ve got plenty of popcorn and candy on-hand for hungry little monsters.

Scare Up A Scavenger Hunt

Hide goodies around your home and even outside for a spooky scavenger hunt. You can also bring the trick-or-treating fun by setting up candy stations at home. Decorate different rooms or even different spots in the backyard and have kids stop by each room for a different treat. You can even make this fun activity into a treasure hunt by hiding goodies around the house and creating a treasure map for the kids to follow. Be sure to get fun Halloween baskets and buckets to decorate and then, the best part: fill ‘em up with candy.
