This year we have been challenged to celebrate differently; Halloween is no exception. But different does NOT have to mean Halloween is canceled. Although, there may be no traditional trick or treating there are other fun things to do with the family on Halloween.
First, set the mood this year with a festive party. Here is Adorn's Haunted Soiree to spark some inspiration. Adorn offers a full party bundle for 8 with all the essentials you would need for a Boo-riffic soiree including adorable paper ghost plates and bat cups to get everyone in the spirit this Halloween.
That's not all! This Haunted Soiree also has colorful and spirited decorations to transform your space into some spooky fun! Adorn party bundles are carefully curated for quality and style to make your celebrations chic, easy and memorable. Enjoy the convenience of a ready to go party in a box delivered to your door this Halloween.

Halloween treat hunt is our take on an Easter egg hunt for Halloween. You can hide treats in the backyard or a local park and have the kiddos hunt them down. You can purchase some spooky eggs like these we found on Amazon: (Click on picture to go to site.)
Or you can just wrap the treats in tissue paper and tie with a string or tinsel wire.
Mini mummy piñata crafting is a real treat! You can make your own piñata and fill with candy. For tutorial: https://diycandy.com/halloween-kids-craft-mummy-pinata/
Cookie decorating doesn't have to be exclusively for Christmas; you can bake some pumpkin cookies for the family to decorate with some spiced orange frosting. Check out this delicious pumpkin cookie recipe: https://dearcrissy.com/pumpkin-cookies-recipe/ Or if you love chocolate and want to mold the cookie into different shapes, try these Halloween chocolate sugar cookies, https://veronikaskitchen.com/halloween-chocolate-sugar-cookies/
Don't forget haunted house decorating which is a take on the gingerbread house typically decorated for Christmas but a HAUNTED house rendition. Decorate with chocolate frosting or green frosting, candy corn, black licorice, and creepy crawly worms. Here is a spooky rendition from HGTV https://www.hgtv.com/lifestyle/holidays/how-to-make-a-haunted-gingerbread-house-for-halloween
Halloween Bingo is fun for all ages. You can make the tokens candy, which Bingo winners can eat or save the treats for the end. Here is a free printable option: https://crazylittleprojects.com/free-printable-halloween-bingo-game/
End the night with a family friendly Halloween movie. Here are our favorites:
Ichabod Crane and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
Nightmare before Christmas
While kids are watching, parents can have some adult time with this cocktail!
No matter how you and your loved ones celebrate this year, rest assured this Halloween 2020 is one to be remembered, I mean I would argue that you can qualify the whole year as a bizarre, ire, freaky reality so in that way we got to celebrate Halloween all year long.
