With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to get creative with your celebrations. Take a look at our list of innovative activities for the entire family to enjoy at home this spooky season.
Is it even Halloween if you’ve not carved a pumpkin? Pumpkin carving is the perfect October competition for your entire household to get involved in. There’s still plenty of socially distanced pumpkin picking opportunities around Anglesey, with farms including Bellis Brothers Farm, Chirk Castle and Manorafon Farm still offering the pumpkin picking experience.
Trick or Treat Scavenger Hunt
With the traditional way of trick-or-treating not being possible this year, it doesn’t mean that Halloween is cancelled. It’s time to put a little twist with a trick or treat scavenger hunt, like an Easter Egg hunt but spookier! You can hide chocolates, sweets or whatever you fancy around the house/garden. Just make sure you don’t forget about the chocolate hidden behind the radiator! Get the kids all dressed up as normal and send them off on their hunt!
Host a Virtual Halloween Party
Despite not being able to socialise indoors with anyone outside of your household, it doesn’t mean you can still enjoy Halloween with them. Thanks to technology there are still ways for you to connect with your friends/family during this spooky season. Decorate your house, throw on a fang-tastic outfit and let the party begin! You can have a virtual costume contest, tell spooky stories, or even host a classic Zoom quiz (Halloween edition of course).
Halloween movie marathon
There’s nothing better than getting cosy on the sofa with the family on a cold autumn day. In this era of movie subscription services, there are thousands of movies available to watch with a few clicks of a button. There’s plenty of spooktastic Halloween films for the entire family to enjoy with kids classics like Corpse Bride, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Casper! For those feeling extra brave horror classics including IT and The Shining are perfect for this season, even if you’re watching through your fingers!
