Ideas for Halloween 2021 - Trick or Treat Home Edition 


1. Scavenger Hunt

Halloween Ideas 2020

Turn your home into a Halloween scavenger hunt. Hide treats or small gifts in every room or around the yard for your children to find. If your kids are old enough to read, you can make clues to help them find their next treat! For added spooky fun, turn off the lights and hand out flashlights or glow sticks to the kids! You can even get them in on the pre-fun! Give them bags of candy to hide in random places, for their siblings to find later! Download your free Printable Scavenger Hunt now (we've also included blank sheet if you want to come up with your own clues)!


2. Party Time!

Once they're all candied out, there are tons more activities you can conjure up! Decorate a pumpkin or a face mask. Whip out the Skoolzy's Pumpkin Matching Game for some family fun, or place some googly eyeballs around the yard and time them to see how long it’ll take to find them all/who finds the most in ten minutes, etc 


3. Virtual Party

Each family can print out some spooky coloring sheets for the kids to color in, and have treats at the ready so you can all award prizes for scariest costume, funniest pet costume, most colorful picture, best jack-o-lantern, etc
