Getting together with the family for a night of fright, thrills, and candy can make any Halloween one to remember. Here are some fun family Halloween activities recommended by us here at Wilson GM of Stillwater.
Watch a Spooky Movie
Stay in for the night and watch a Halloween classic, like The Nightmare Before Christmas, Casper, or Hocus Pocus. Family-friendly movies are a great way to give your kids a taste of the thrill that Halloween has to offer without giving them nightmares they’ll never forget. You could even go the extra mile and invite some friends over for a horror showing once the kids are tucked away in bed.
Have a Themed Dinner
Like any holiday, Halloween has its own set of recipes, but you don’t have to be a master chef to make some scary delights. Something as simple as making olives into eyeballs can put a spin on dinner to make it a little different from the ordinary meal.
Go to the Library
It may not seem like a way to make Halloween memorable, but a trip to the library in your crossover can make the holiday much more fun. Have the kids pick out some spooky bedtime stories. They can read the books themselves or have you read the books to them as they lay their heads on a pillow on the scariest night of the year.
