Try These Activities to Get in the Halloween Spirit

In Fall, Halloween by Adam's Crossing Apartments

As the weather gets cooler and the days get shorter, we anticipate fall. But what comes along with fall? Halloween, of course! The spooky season is upon us, and it’s time to get in the Halloween spirit. Here are some Halloween activities to try. Let’s get spooky!

Activities to Get in the Halloween Spirit

Halloween is more than just trick-or-treating; there are lots of activities you can do to get in the spooky spirit.

1. Carve or paint pumpkins

Carving pumpkins is a tradition many families have when Halloween comes around. Going to the pumpkin patch, picking out your favorite pumpkin, and going home to carve it is a great way to kick off spooky season! 

To get everyone in the Halloween spirit of carving and decorating pumpkins, make it a friendly competition with the person having the best carved, decorated, and scary pumpkin winning a prize.

2. Decorate your apartment

Don’t wait until it’s a few days before Halloween to start decorating your apartment. Let the decorating begin before the big spooky celebration. This gives you ample time to spice things up and get in the Halloween spirit! 

Here are some trendy ideas to decorate your apartment

  • Make your own mummy by mummifying some of your home objects
  • Go for the spooky spider decorations. Hang spiders and cobwebs in various areas of your apartment
  • Decorate pumpkins and place them in and around your apartment
  • Set the lights and make it spooky
  • Put out some bowls of candy corn to decorate (and snack on!)

Get creative! There are so many spooky ways for you to decorate your apartment.

3. Watch scary movies

Whether you are with your family or friends, a scary movie night is always a good idea. Get in the Halloween spirit by watching some scary movies. 

Dim the lights, grab your popcorn, and get ready for a thrill. In addition to scary movies, there are various family-friendly Halloween movies, like Hocus Pocus, Caroline Hotel Transylvania, Halloween Town, Casper, Ghostbusters, Hubie Halloween, etc.

4. Throw a Halloween party 

There is no better way to celebrate Halloween than having a Halloween party. It doesn’t matter if it is a big or small party; having a Halloween party is the best way to get yourself and your friends and family in the Halloween spirit.

Here are some ideas to throw the perfect Halloween party

  • Make it themed
  • Set a spooky scene with your decorations
  • Create spooky invites
  • Ensure you have enough spooky snacks and drinks
  • Have fun games
  • Dance until dawn with a spooky Halloween playlist
  • Share spooky goodie bags

There is nothing you can’t do to throw the best Halloween party. Get creative with unlimited ideas.

5. Make some Halloween-themed desserts

It’s not Halloween if Halloween-themed desserts are absent. Making Halloween-themed desserts is one of the best ways to get in the Halloween spirit. 

Boost up the fear factor of your Halloween desserts. You could have mummy-themed cookies, ghost-themed cookies, vampire-themed cookies, tombstone-themed cookies, witches-themed cookies, and more.
