How to Celebrate Halloween at Home with Kids
As we slowly approach the end of September, we look towards October and all that the new month brings. Halloween is certainly an October highlight. Whether it’s attending a costume party or going trick-or-treating, this holiday is enjoyed by both adults and kids alike. However, this year you may not be able to celebrate the holiday as you normally would.
Although, Halloween tends to be rather a social event, don’t let that stop you from having a fun Halloween from the comfort and safety of your home. From Halloween decorations to Halloween gift bags, here’s how you and your kids can have a spooky Halloween at home with Anim8.lk.
Set the Mood
The setting plays a crucial part in the success of any event. Since you will be celebrating at home, it is vital that you make an extra effort with the decorations and create a setting that would rival any haunted house! Remember to be as creative as possible, here are some fun Halloween decoration ideas that your kids will love.
- Themed Party Decorations
Attention to the small details makes a world of a difference. We offer several customisable party decorations like Paper Cups & Paper Plates which are printed with a custom design to suit your preferences. If you’re planning to watch a scary movie, we suggest you get these Popcorn Boxes which you can personalise to suit the Halloween theme.
- Footprint Stickers
Although these laminated footprint stickers are usually used as a way of creating easy to follow directional pathways, on Halloween, transform these stickers into ‘ghost’ footprints. You could have a scavenger hunt and use these stickers to throw the kids off from finding the special Halloween goodie bags!
- Cupcake Toppers
Perfect for your Halloween themed feast, our Cupcake Toppers will add a nice, festive touch. You can customise the design and number of toppers you need to suit your requirement. Since it’s for Halloween, we recommend you opt for some spooky toppers such as a picture of ghosts or pumpkin lanterns.
Plan Some Exciting Activities
It’s needless to say that everyone is experiencing cabin fever after spending several months at home. One of the best ways to make sure everyone has a good time and stays busy is by organising some exciting Halloween activities.
- Have a Scavenger Hunt
Planning a scavenger hunt is an excellent way to keep the kids busy. Use our customisable 6X4 Inch Postcards to write your clues and have Halloween gifts hidden all around our house. This game is sure to keep the kids entertained for an hour or so and by the end of the scavenger hunt, they will have Halloween goodie bags filled with fun treats.
- Watch a Scary Movie or Share Ghost Stories
Huddle with the family while you eat popcorn and watch a scary movie or share some spooky stories. The perfect accompaniment for this would be a delicious cup of hot chocolate. We have a wide range of printed mugs, but if you want to stay in the theme, opt for our Magic Mug. This designer mug features a custom print of your choosing that is only revealed when a hot beverage is added. This mug is one of the best personalised gifts for your loved ones.
Finally, no Halloween party would be complete without costumes. Dressing up is a must for this holiday, however, if you’re unable to find a suitable costume, opt for one of our custom t-shirts! Two design t-shirts that are perfect for Halloween would be this Glow in the Dark Skeleton T-Shirt and our Glow in the Dark T-Shirt that can feature any design you desire! These t-shirts also make great customised gifts that you can add to your Halloween gift baskets.
Ultimately, all you need to celebrate Halloween from home with kids is some creativity and a little help from Anim8.lk!
