It’s October and time to share some new cute free halloween prints along with some alternatives to trick or treating! These printables are classic and simple black and white with a bit of spooky. I’m kinda in to alphabet letter prints and I’m sharing 3 today. I hope you also love these fun alternatives to trick or treating!
These free halloween prints are fun for decorating with, but maybe you are concerned about trick or treating this year.
Not everyone wants to go trick-or-treating, whether you find it a safety hazard in your neighborhood, or you simply don’t live somewhere that makes it convenient. Luckily, there are plenty of alternatives you can consider.
I’ve come up with 4 fun alternatives to trick or treating.
Have a Halloween-Themed Game Night
One great idea you can try on Halloween is to have a fun game night. This involves putting together some different Halloween-themed games that the kids can play instead of going out trick-or-treating. Try to have plenty of candy around the house to enjoy Halloween just as much as if they were going out for candy. You can even have candy-themed games, such as a Halloween piñata or giving out candy as a gift for winning certain games. There are plenty of different ways to do this.
Watch Halloween TV Shows and Movies
This is good if you want more of a quiet night at home, such as if one of your kids is sick, or the weather is bad outside so youíre not able to do your typical trick-or-treating. You will find a wide range of television shows and movies for Halloween that are appropriate for kids of different ages. For younger kids, try The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, then get movies like Hocus Pocus and Coraline for your older kids and teenagers. Make some spooky treats and sit down to watch movies all night.
Go to a Local Trunk-or-Treat
Another fun thing you can do if you don’t want kids going door to door due to safety precautions is to take them to a trunk-or-treat. Instead of going to peopleís homes, this is an organized event, usually at a local church or other organization that can be trusted. Everyone drives in their vehicles and opens up their trunk to put bowls or bags of candy. The kids get to go to each car, get their candy, then there is usually a party during or afterward the main event. This is a fun and safe way to spend Halloween with your family.
Create Fun Halloween Crafts
For the kids or teens that enjoy being creative, crafts are perfect. It is another option when the weather is too cold or rainy outside on Halloween, so going door to door would not be the best idea. Instead, keep your kids interested in staying indoors by setting up some different craft stations inside. You can have regular pumpkins to carve or plastic pumpkins with pens and paint they can use to decorate them. You can make a big pin the stem on the pumpkin for the door, or do any number of other crafts.
