Tips for Celebrating Halloween at Home

Tips for Celebrating Halloween at Home | Sanderson Ford | Phoenix, AZ

Are you celebrating Halloween at home this year? You can still have a lot of scary fun. Check out these suggestions for family-friendly Halloween activities!

Make a haunted fort

Making a haunted fort right at home is a favorite among kids. You can start with a regular blanket fort and add spooky elements, like fake cobwebs and LED candles, or build something more elaborate if you’re feeling ambitious.

Make a Halloween scavenger hunt

Scavenger hunts are always fun, and they’re even more fun when Halloween-themed. Better yet, all you need is a pen, paper and Halloween decoration you can reference.

Throw a face painting party

Kids love to paint. Buy a face-painting kit and let them go crazy trying to turn themselves — or you — into a spooky Halloween monster. Just make sure to have makeup remover at hand.

Host Halloween game night

Halloween game night can be as simple as playing a normal board game with a Halloween theme, like Halloween bingo. There are many, many variations of classic games you can find online. Good Housekeeping has a nice list to get you started.

Tell a spooky story

No Halloween is complete without a good, scary story. Sit around a backyard campfire and spook your children with a sinister (but family-friendly) tale. If you don’t have an outdoor area, an indoor fireplace works too.

When Halloween comes around, try a few different activities. Then, next year, you can do the most popular ones again with variations or more embellishment. It can become a family tradition!

It’s probably not a good idea to trunk or treat this year, but if you still need a new ride for a scary good price, make sure to check out Sanderson Ford in Glendale, Arizona. And also, happy Halloween!
