Trick or Treating is fun, but there are times when we may choose not to Trick or Treat, so today we are looking at alternatives to Trick or Treating. Having your own Halloween fun at home is easy with these ideas!
Anyway, my friends have been asking if I knew of any alternatives to trick or treating. So, I put together a little list and e-mailed it to them. Then I thought that if THEY wanted to know, I’m sure some of you would find it helpful, too. So, today, I am sharing 5 things to do if you don’t want to Trick or Treat.
1. Play a game every hour, on the hour, during trick-or-treat time. We are playing “MINUTE TO WIN IT” games this year. We will play a game at 5:00, 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00.
3. Bake Cookies!
Our kids love to make these Halloween Oreo Spider Cookies, so if you wanted a fun activity to take the place of Trick or Treating, this would be perfect:
4. Go to a farm! Pumpkin Picking, Corn Mazes, and Hay Rides!
Fall is the perfect time for farm days. Take your kids to a local farm and take a lot of fun pictures! Let them play with the corn buckets that most farms have now, go in the hay or corn maze, and pick a pumpkin.
5. Have a movie night!
Dress up in your favorite costume & meet downstairs in the living room for a family movie night. Build a blanket fort, get your popcorn & spider cookies ready to go & watch a Halloween Movie.
Some kid-friendly Halloween movies are Spookley, Spooky Buddies (the puppy golden retrievers), “It’s a great pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” Halloweentown, and Twitches.
