Our 5 Favorite Ideas for A Safe & Tasty Halloween At Home
Halloween may look a little different this year, with a bit less trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, staying safe with drive thru haunted houses, and much smaller Halloween party gatherings.
But the fun is all still there with spooky costumes, fun games, scary movies, tasty treats, time with friends, and even more treats. Here are our Top 5 ideas for a safe, fun and yummy Halloween night.
1 - Host A Scary Movie Marathon
Why save the best for last, this is probably out favorite idea, so let’s get started with it!
We love this idea because there are so many options for putting this together that’s just the right fit for your family or group of friends. Plus, you can also include the other 4 following ideas into this for a fully immersive Halloween experience.
Although you may not be able to go seek out all the ghoulish excitement of a typical Halloween by going out, nothing says you can’t bring it all to you! Pick your favorite movies and snacks, whether it’s for the young kids, the big kids or the adults, there is always an option to get your heart racing, or your belly giggling.
We recommend outside, under the stars, and next to your outdoor fire pit to add that extra touch of spooky ambiance.
2 - Halloween Themed Treats by The Fire
Once you’re all set up outside for your movie night, it’s time to get festive with tasty Halloween treats. And what better treat to liven up your movie by the fire, than with s'mores! Everyone loves the warm gooey medley and there is just so many fun ways to enjoy them.
A couple of our favorites include Halloween S'mores cookies, which will surely be a win with any of the little ones. Or a simple and fun twist on the old classic is simply switching out those boring marshmallows for Halloween Peep. Check out these fun Halloween Peep cupcakes!
3 - Candy Graveyard Scavenger Hunt
It’s not quite Trick-or-Treating, but who doesn’t love finding treasure, especially when those treasures taste delicious! With some jack-o-lanterns and spooky tombstones placed strategically around the yard, you can easily create a fun Halloween themed scavenger hunt for guests of all ages.
For the older kids, make sure to include the items needed for the s’more’s recipes above, and they will love the interactive feel. Or CLICK HERE for fun ways to keep the little kids engaged with glow in the dark candy bags.

And for a 21+ and over crowd, grab a cocktail and share some more seriously frightening tales.
