Looking for fun Halloween ideas this year? Add this Halloween Scavenger Hunt to your list. Halloween is still happening, and there are so many ways to celebrate!
Fall is officially here! And can you believe Halloween is coming up fast? Halloween is seriously the best holiday. It’s hands-down our favorite in our house, and we love to celebrate it big! I’ve always loved decorating for Halloween, coming up with fun themed treats, dressing up with the kids, and of course, trick-or-treating! This year is a little different, but different can still be tons of fun. Trick-or-treating may not be happening in your community in 2020, but I’m so excited to share a few new ideas for celebrating the season with you. We are still going hard on the Halloween celebration over here!
Fun Halloween Activities
Even if Halloween’s typical trick-or-treating is off the table for your family this year, it definitely doesn’t mean this holiday is canceled. It’s okay to still celebrate! And there are so many ways to make it fun, and safe, for the kids. What if you planned to celebrate throughout the whole month of October? It can be a whole season, not just a single day. Plan a few celebrations to spread it out and make the whole season memorable for the kids!
Pumpkin Egg Hunt
Halloween is on a Saturday this year, giving you the perfect timing to celebrate. This way, there’s no rushing around to get things ready! And can you believe there’s a full moon that night too?! To still make it feel like the kids are trick-or-treating, why not use that time to set up a pumpkin egg hunt!
How to Set Up a Halloween Scavenger Hunt
To get things ready, buy plastic Easter eggs, or bust out your stash of eggs from Easter storage. I love the idea of going with a color scheme, using orange and drawing jack-o-lantern faces on each of them with a black paint pen!
Once your eggs are decked out, it’s time for candy. Grab a mixture of traditional snack size candy options for your eggs. The kids love everything from Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers, Wonka Runts, and Jolly Ranchers to M&M’s, Almond Joy, and Snickers! Put candy in your eggs, and then hide the eggs all throughout the house or even the backyard. Have the kids dress up in fun Halloween themed pajamas to get the party started. They will have so much fun with this surprise!
This is such a fun, new trick-or-treating tradition to start, and it can be done from the comfort and safety of home! To make it even more fun, you could prep Halloween themed treats, or a big bowl of punch, to really make it a party. Want more ideas to celebrate?
