5 Kid-Friendly Activities to Make Halloween Extra Special

Fall is here, and Halloween is right around the corner! This spooky holiday is a fun time for kids to wear costumes, go trick-or-treating, carve pumpkins, and create special memories.

Looking for things to do with your favorite witch, ghost, superhero, or princess? We’ve provided a few fun Halloween activity ideas below to get the whole family in the holiday spirit!

Kid-Friendly Halloween Activities

1. Pumpkin Decorating

Pumpkins are a staple of Halloween. Instead of carving, try having the kids decorate them with non-toxic paint or washable markers. They can also add fake spider webs and spooky accessories to make the pumpkin more festive. This activity is perfect for younger kids and toddlers, as it’s easy to do and doesn’t require any sharp objects.

2. Halloween Scavenger Hunt

A Halloween-themed scavenger hunt can be a fun activity for kids of all ages! Create a list of small Halloween items and hide them around your house or backyard. Then, create clues for your kids to follow and find the items. Make the scavenger hunt more challenging for older kids by adding riddles or puzzles to solve.

3. Costume Party

Hosting a costume party is a fun and inclusive way for kids to participate in Halloween, especially if the weather is chilly. Invite your child’s friends over and encourage them to dress up. Have a costume contest and give out prizes for the best costumes. This activity is perfect for kids who love to dress up and embrace their creative side!

4. Halloween Baking

Whether it’s making pumpkin-shaped cookies or caramel apples, baking is always a fun activity to do with kids. Host a Halloween baking day where your kids can help with measuring ingredients, mixing, and decorating. Not only is it fun, but you’ll also have some tasty treats to enjoy at the end of the day!

5. Halloween Movie Night

Who doesn’t love a good Halloween movie? Pick out some kid-friendly Halloween movies and host a movie night with your family. You can even create a cozy fort with blankets and pillows for the ultimate movie-watching experience. It’s a fun way to spend time together as a family while also getting into the Halloween spirit!
