Spooky season is here! I cannot believe it’s October already (I’ve been saying this every single month)! Time to pull out all of the witches, ghosts, and skeletons from the closet. Don’t have any? No worries, I have you covered! It’s not too late to get into the Halloween spirit. Whether you’re looking for some simple pumpkin decor, decorating for an intimate get-together, or you want to create a creepy porch setting for passersby, this Wednesday Wish List has a little something for you! Even though Covid has this Halloween looking a bit different than years past, decorating your space could brighten your mood and is fun for the whole family.
In addition to the fun Halloween paraphernalia, I wanted to share a few holiday activities you can do in lieu of Halloween parties or trick-or-treating with your kiddos.
Socially-Distant Halloween Activities:
- Find (or create) a festive cocktail recipe and arrange a virtual happy hour (via Zoom, Facetime, Skype, etc.) where everyone creates the same drink! There’s tons of options: Dracula’s Blood, a Hard Cider Pumpkin Float, or a Candy Corn Cocktail. Don’t forget to dress in your costume!
- Bake up some creepy Halloween treats with your significant other or your little ones! This list offers tons of suggestions! Make sure you blast some Halloween tunes while you’re working in the kitchen! If you’re up to it, you can individually package treats and leave them on the porch of close family and friends.
- Watch a scary movie – or a family-friendly Halloween flick like “Halloweentown.”
- Carve jack-o-lanters while sipping some spiced cider or hot chocolate! Don’t forget to roast the pumpkin seeds for a yummy snack! You can toss them in melted butter and salt, spread them into a single layer on a baking sheet, and bake for 45 minutes (or until golden brown) at 300 degrees F (stirring occasionally). Instead of regular salt, I like to put Johnny’s Seasoning on mine (it’s addicting)!
