It’s time to spice up your Halloween traditions and introduce some new Halloween activities and fall festivities to enjoy with friends and family!

If you are like most of us, you love Fall most of all, or maybe it’s a close second to Christmas! Halloween especially is a wonderful opportunity to make memories and create new family traditions.

It’s nice to have a mix of some scary activities but also some less-spooky activities for Halloween and the fall season. Children of course love the traditional fall and Halloween activities like visiting the pumpkin patch, haunted houses, and pumpkin carving, but you might consider also adding some new traditions to your list this year!


1. Try No-Carve Pumpkin Decorating!

No-carve pumpkin decorating has some real benefits! Your pumpkins will last longer, and you won’t have to spend an hour removing the goopy guts! Consider creating some fun Halloween pumpkins using craft supplies like paint, tape, leaves, crayons, googly eyes or tissue paper. 

Make an adorable mummy pumpkin with just duct tape and googly eyes!

2. Have a Glow-in-the-Dark Scavenger Hunt

3. Visit the Apple Orchard and Have a Baking Day 

Visit a local apple orchard and enjoy a hayrack ride, apple-picking, and some warm apple cider. Be sure to check the apple orchard’s website to find the dates during which your favorite apples are ripe and available for picking. 

Head home and do some baking with your apples. Apple crisp is usually a hit and much easier to bake than a traditional apple pie! Try out this recipe.

4. Make Some Creepy Slime

This Halloween activity doesn’t take much work but does make for a lot of fun and play-value for children!

Buy some pre-made slime. Dope Slime is great because it tends to be fluffy, doesn’t stick and smells yummy!  Head to your local craft store and let the kids pick out Halloween embellishments to mix into your slime. Plastic spiders work great!

5. Play Games with Your Pumpkins 

Play some outdoor games with your pumpkins! The possibilities are endless. You can turn your pumpkins into a game of putt-putt, a ring-toss game, ski ball and even a bean bag toss game! These are also great ideas for Halloween fun if you are hosting a fall carnival or Halloween party for kids!
