With vaccines being doled out and restrictions lifted across the nation, 2022 may be the first year since the pandemic started where you’ll be galvanizing an entire group of neighborhood kids for trick-or-treating. And in your efforts to make this year’s celebration its most epic yet, why stop at ringing doorbells for candy? There are plenty of other ways to commemorate All Hallows Eve, from visiting pumpkin patches to apple picking and of course, going to haunted houses.
For families who prefer to spend the day at home, there’s plenty to do too—including getting all gussied up for the spooky occasion. You can get crafty by creating your own family costumes (hey, we love a good Insta opp) or making a ghost garland. If you want a more active night, try a game of Halloween charades, mummy racing or playing in a Halloween-themed obstacle course of your own making.
