It’s true – Halloween fun can be had by adults, guilt-free!! It’s a great time to indulge in the creative, fun, silly side of ourselves in a variety of ways!
For example, many families like to dress up in themed outfits. This not only makes for a fun adventure but can bring families closer as they brainstorm ideas for a theme and the outfits for each character.
I know I’ve had a great time answering the door to a “theme” of characters, having fun trying to guess the theme and who is who! Fun for the family and fun for the candy givers!
Speaking of which, who doesn’t like candy? It’s a great time to shop around for candy to give out and perhaps partake in a bit of it yourself! Plus, isn’t it great to see the smiles on the faces of the kids when they get a Snicker’s bar or a Twix?
There’s also Halloween themed candy, which puts a fun twist on our traditional candy. Whether it’s M&Ms that are only colored Halloween colors or candy corn, this “new” candy adds to the season.
Halloween can also be such a fun time to decorate our house in creative ways. Whether it’s ghoulish characters, webbed designs, or other Halloween décor, it’s fun to transition your home into your own mini haunted house!
Some go a step further and decorate their yards. The creativity I have seen with this has been astonishing! It really brings out the innovation in people as they come up with creative ways to decorate all aspects of their yard.
Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention pumpkins! They are great fun to carve – and yet another family fun project. And, the seeds make for a delicious salty treat!
If you are feeling adventurous and are quite the cook, perhaps a pumpkin pie, muffins or other treats can be made to continue to the mood!
How do you Celebrate Halloween?
Do you decorate the house? The yard? Carve pumpkins for all to see? What’s your favorite part of the holiday? I know one thing I really enjoy is seeing the little kiddies in their costumes!
