5 Halloween activities you can enjoy at home in 2020

Halloween is very different this year. You might not feel safe enough to go trick or treating and definitely won’t be having your annual Halloween party. Boo!

However, there are still many ways that you can celebrate and have fun for Halloween at home. I’m not a huge Halloween fan (I’m scared of almost everything) but I do enjoy getting festive and celebrating in a non-scary way. Here are 5 Halloween activities at home, so you can stay safe in 2020.

Trick or Treat hunt

This would be a fun activity if you have children and don’t feel safe going trick or treating this year. You could hide Halloween treats around your house and in the garden, a bit like an Easter egg hunt, and leave clues so that they can find them.

You could also get crafty and create trick or treat cards – one with instructions to find the treat and the other one could be a trick or a fake card. Tweet me your photos on Twitter @LatteLeanne if you do this, I would love to see them.

Pumpkin carving

Pumpkins are the least-scary part of Halloween. They’re bright orange, autumnal, fun, and carving them can be a family activity for everyone. You could even Zoom call your friends and do it together if you’re facing different restrictions due to Covid-19.

We haven’t got real pumpkins in our home this year but I did pick up two, adorable pumpkin tea light holders for our fireplace and they are so cute!

Watch spooky films or TV shows

Okay, when I say spooky, I don’t mean ‘scary’. I’m thinking more of the cute spooky, easy-to-watch programmes or films which don’t require hiding behind a blanket! Casper the friendly ghost or Hocus Pocus, anyone?

Of course, if you’re into scary films – go for it!

Dress up at home

You don’t need to go out to have a great time dressing up. Experiment with clothes you already have at home and get creative.

You can do so much with the makeup you have lying around upstairs too. You could draw spider webs on your face with black eye liner or go all-out on the smokey eye look.

Halloween music quiz

You could organise a Zoom call with your family and friends for a Halloween music quiz. You can each choose a Halloween themed or spooky song and send it to the music maestro, who will play all of the songs from a playlist. Who ever guesses the most song titles, artists and even films – wins the points!

You could give prizes such as Halloween sweets or you could even make an online certificate to send to them as a keepsake.
