Halloween doesn’t always mean you get to go out and trick or treat. Some parents have to work, kids are sick, or you have a newborn baby. There are ways you can celebrate inside.
Watch Halloween Movies
This is the easiest way. Our favorites are Halloweentown, Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, Charlie Brown Halloween, and any Scary movie we can find once kids are asleep! (It, Friday the 13th, Chainsaw Massacre)

Color Halloween Pictures
This is great for many different ages. Coloring different Halloween pictures. Little kids get easy ones and you can get more intricate ones for older kids. Easy to do and not that expensive.
Dress up Fun
This is great for the little ones. You can use this time to have fun dressing up. We buy clearance costumes to play in and this is a great time to show them off, take pictures and act silly.
Halloween Themed Food
This is the perfect time to pull out Pinterest and make Halloween themed food. Black spaghetti, Spider brownies, Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats and more. So many options and so delicious!
If you are really brave you can have a scaring contest with older kids. See who can scare the pants off of you the best. (Not for the faint of heart).
Make an indoor Halloween fun and different. It won’t happen every year, so make the most of the situation and enjoy!
