10 Ways to Celebrate Halloween at Home this Year!

This year, although it may be a slightly different Halloween Holiday that we are all used to, it doesn’t mean that it still can’t be fun and full of games that the whole family can get involved with and are sure to enjoy. We have put together 10 top ideas that you could do at home or socially distanced to ensure you stay safe this Halloween.

Halloween Games

It is time to get out the creativity box and put together some creative games. A fun bean bag ring-toss game or a board game that is sure to be a great hit with the family.

Spooktacular Snacks

Since the traditional Halloween activities such as trick or treating might not be able to go ahead, why not put together some snacks at home, try baking some cookies and putting some Halloween designs on them!

Watch a Halloween Movie

Pick a family favourite and sit down to relax to a Halloween movie. Disney+ now have lots of child-friendly Halloween movies available. Perfect for a day at home!

Halloween Playlist

Why not have a Halloween party at home, no matter how small the party is you can have a Halloween playlist and play party games. This is something that the whole family can get involved with.

Costume Contest

Time to dig down the fancy dress box and see who can create the spookiest Halloween costume.

Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkin carving is a great way to get in the Halloween spirit, creating lots of different designs on the pumpkin. Remember to keep safe and take all precautions.

Decorate the House

Nothing will get you in the spirit like Halloween decorations. Why not pick out a colour theme and get creative.

Go ‘Ghosting’

Ghosting is something that has become more popular over the years and more popular now than ever. Ghosting is where you put together a bag of goodies with a note for your family and friends and you leave it on their doorstep. The idea is then to encourage them to them do it to their friends and family and sticks to the socially distancing guidelines.

Visit a Pumpkin Patch

Why not visit a pumpkin patch near you and pick out a pumpkin yourself? This is a great outdoor activity.

Shadow Puppet Performance

Everyone likes a puppet show. This year why not have a Halloween themed puppet show. Using bits of card and ice-lolly sticks to create the puppets, with an end performance will bring hours of entertainment.  

We would love to see some of your spookiest designs and Halloween crafts that you have made this year. Please send over your photos to socialm@sunbeamfostering.com

Happy Halloween!
