Fun Things To Do on Halloween!

Halloween is the time of year to get “Spooky Scary Skeletons” playing and time to change into your costume. You would most likely hang out with your friends and go trick-or-treating on Halloween. Once you outgrow this tradition, you would want to do something else other than doing “little kid” activities. This is the list for you to make your Halloween great this year!


  • Have a Halloween Party or go to one.

Planning a Halloween party is as simple as you think. The first thing you need to do is know who your gonna invite. That parts pretty simple if your only gonna invite close friends. The next thing you need to do is know where your gonna have the party and what day and what time. That’s also easy to do because your most likely to have it at your house and are gonna throw your party on the weekend. The very last thing you need to do is know what costume your gonna wear and what your decorations are gonna be. This is probably the hardest part of planning a party. Figuring out what costume your gonna wear to not be the same as someone else is kinda hard because at least one person is gonna wear the same thing.

Haunted houses are one of the most visited places on Halloween. Haunted houses are on everyone’s to do list on Halloween. There are many haunted houses to go to have fun and enjoy getting scared with your best friends. Some haunted houses are hosted at schools and many are free to go into. These haunted houses aren’t very scary, but they still give you a thrill to remember.



  • Binge Watch Halloween Movies

Now this one, I do the WHOLE MONTH. Watching scary Halloween movies is my favorite thing to do in October. I mostly watch Hocus Pocus with my family and many other great Halloween movies. Watching Halloween movies is a GREAT way to pass time and a good way to enjoy yourself.


  • Watch Football

Now this one is for the boys, or any girls that like watching football (I know I do!). Football just came back these past few weeks and has been a great start. Watching Sunday Night Football with family is fun and can get pretty exciting. My family and I LOVE watching football together and is a good way to spend time with each other. You can also watching football with friends and get competitive. 


  • Making your own costume.

Making your own costume is super fun and you can get creative! I did my own costume last year, and it was SUPER fun. I made it with my best friend and we matched. Although it’s super fun, it also is a lot of work. It takes time, precision, and creativity. You can make many different costumes in a short amount of time. All the supplies you need are at your local craft store!
