Fun Family Halloween Activities That You Can Do At Home

The spookiest night of the year is finally here. After all the trick-or-treating is finished, you and your family can get together for a fun Halloween themed game night. There are tons of spooky activities that you can do, but we have put together a few of our favorites.

Kid-Friendly Movies and Treats

Gather around your comfy living room furniture and watch a not-so-scary Halloween movie. Some options are Casper or Scooby-Doo. Since it is Halloween, you have the perfect excuse to treat yourselves to some sweets. You can either dip into the trick-or-treat candy or make your own delicious recipes.

Pin the Stem on the Pumpkin

This is essentially the Halloween version of pin the tale on the donkey, but it can still make for a fun game. You can even create your own pumpkin with orange construction paper. Use green paper for the stem and hang it up on a cork board.

Bewitching Chairs

This is another spooky spin on a classic game of musical chairs. You can make a witch's hat from some everyday materials and use it as a game prop. You can find full instructions for the game on Family Education here.

Scavenger/ Treasure Hunt

Have kids go on a scavenger hunt around the house. Add a touch of Halloween to the scavenger hunt by using glow in the dark stickers and arrows as clues and dim the lights. You can use candy as the treasure or choose other prizes.
