Halloween Movie Night:

DIY Halloween Decorations:
Get crafty by making your own Halloween decorations. Create paper bats, ghosts, and spiders to hang around the house. You can also make a "spooky" wreath with black and orange ribbon, or even paint some mini pumpkins to use as table centrepieces.
Set the mood by dimming the lights and gather 'round for some spine-tingling storytelling. You can either read from a spooky storybook or let the kids take turns making up their own eerie tales. Don't be surprised if they come up with stories scarier than anything you could find in a book!
Monster Mash Dance Party:
Put on a Halloween-themed playlist and have a dance party. Encourage kids to come up with their own spooky dance moves or teach them classics like the "Monster Mash" or "Thriller." The more outrageous the dance moves, the better!

Plan a treasure hunt in the dark by hiding glow-in-the-dark items or candy around the yard or house. Give the kids flashlights or glow sticks to help them find the hidden treasures. It's a spooktacular twist on a classic game.
Spend some quality time in the kitchen baking Halloween-themed treats. Make spiderweb cookies, mummy hot dogs, or rice crispy treat pumpkins. Let the kids decorate their creations with icing and sprinkles for a deliciously spooky result.
