Halloween Weekend: Party at Home Ideas
We know Halloween looks a little spookier this year due to Covid-19, but we’re still planning to celebrate- at home with our loves ones! Here are a few ways to make it special for your kiddos:
- Set up a spooky scavenger hunt around the house with Halloween candy. This is a great option if you choose not to participate in Trick-or-Treating this year!
- Carve pumpkins. Plus, roast the pumpkin seeds for a tasty treat!
- Have a Halloween Fashion Show. Even if you stay in for the night, you can still dress up! This is a great way to keep your kids excited about the costumes they picked out.
- Decorate Caramel Apples. It has never been easier than with our J Morgan Heavenly Caramel Block (#9068)!
- Watch Hocus Pocus or your favorite Halloween show and treat yourself to a Candy Corn Popcorn Ball or two.
- Have a candle lit dinner. Serve a Halloween-themed meal like Ghost Pizza or Spooky Spaghetti.
A classic recipe perfect for Halloween parties! Change up your Chocolate Dirt Pudding cups with Halloween themed gummi candies.
