Superberries Blog 7 Ways to Celebrate Halloween

Spooky season is well underway. The crisp autumn leaves crunch underfoot and the sun sets earlier and earlier. Pumpkin displays and the candy aisle have completely taken over the grocery stores. Scary movies haunt the airways every night, and it’s the perfect time to snuggle up under a blanket and spend time with people you love. For many, Halloween is a time for dressing up, having fun, and expressing their creativity, and this year doesn’t have to be that different. Here are 7 ways to celebrate Halloween safely and successfully.

1. Decorate.

If you have small children at home, help them make symbols of the season, and decorate your windows and yard. They can color or collage cats, owls, pumpkins, and witches. For older children, papier-mache crafts can spark their imaginations. 

2. Make a yard display. 

Together you can design spooky yard displays. Making a scarecrow is a fun activity and it is one way to convince your children to rake up all the leaves that are falling. Though the stores are full of Halloween decorations, you don’t have to spend a lot to make your yard spooky.

3. Carve some pumpkins.

This is an age-old tradition that is fun for everyone. The grocery stores and pumpkin patches are brimming full of pumpkins right now. Everyone can pick their favorites, and carving jack-o-lanterns is a fun family activity. If you have very small children, painting pumpkins can be just as fun. Maybe you can organize a pumpkin decorating contest on your street or among your children’s friends. Judges can walk or drive around to vote, or you can upload them online and use one of many internet programs to tally the votes.

4.  Make Halloween treats. 

Making Halloween treats is always a fun time and you can make a small batch or make more and have your children package some up in festive bags to share with neighbors and friends. Here are some party treat ideas for older and younger children alike from our friends at Delish. 

If you are looking for a low-stress activity that doesn’t involve a lot of preparation, make your favorite Halloween treats or a bowl of popcorn and settle in for a movie marathon. Older children might be able to handle some of the scarier movies, but there are plenty of Halloween-themed films for the younger ones. This might also be the perfect opportunity to get teenagers to watch the movies they loved when they were little for a fun walk down memory lane.

6.  Make a scavenger hunt. 

If you want to celebrate within your own family group or pandemic pod, you can create a spooky scavenger hunt for your children in your house or your own yard. Many creative people have uploaded scavenger hunt ideas with free printable clues for you to use or to inspire your own scavenger hunts. Here is an example of scavenger hunts for younger children. 

7.  Trunk or Treat. 

If you don't want to go out on Halloween many organizations host trunk-or-treat events during the day. Participants decorate the trunks of cars and hand out candy in school or church parking lots. Look at your community calendars to find activities near you.
