5 Fun Ways to Celebrate Halloween 2021 At Home
Halloween is right around the corner; are you ready for this awesome festival? We know that situations have changed ever since the pandemic and we must adapt to this new way of living. But it has also brought us all closer together in a new way, even with social distancing.
We bring to you 5 ways of celebrating this year’s Halloween in a safe and distant way, without missing out on the fun and togetherness. Here we go:
Crafting and carving Halloween decorationsLift your Halloween spirits, bringing the best of Halloween to your home. Maintaining social distancing can be a tough call during festivities like Halloween. But you can always tweak your way of celebrating the holiday by spending more time with your family and closed ones at your home.
Decorate your home together with Halloween special décor items. You can go for ghost wall paintings or the quintessential spider stickers or spider webs. You can even take the decoration spree to the next level with Halloween-themed wall clocks. Set the mood of the ambiance with fluorescent lights and Halloween-themed night lights and the twinkle of fairy lights enhanced with artificial spider webs.
When we speak about Halloween, how can we forget about the tradition of carving pumpkins? A fun activity to do with friends and family alike, you can always go quirkier with the carvings and bring out the artist in you!
Halloween food ideas - cooking together
We all know that food brings us Kiwis together. Halloween can be one of the best occasions for close friends and family to cook together. A barbeque dinner, a mushy comfort dinner, simple baking, or something else - it’s your call.
Some interesting Halloween food ideas can include cute little cupcakes with spooky toppings like gummy worms or spider-shaped chocolate, pumpkin pies, cooking delicious soup in a cauldron, etc. Go as quirky as you like to have fun and a good time with your people. If you want to keep things simple, a classic barbeque dinner never fails. Light up that grill, throw in some string lights in your backyard garden, play some music (maybe Halloween special music) and have a good time.
Close-knit Halloween costume party
You can always have a close-knit Halloween party or get together with your closest homies. This will not only help in maintaining social distancing norms but also let you not spend this holiday alone. Bring the party to your home with themed food, fun games, cool music, and of course, interesting costumes!
Set up your own Halloween costume party and spruce your house with Halloween-themed decorations to set the mood of the party. Spend a good time deciding on your own Halloween costume - after all, there’s some fun in that as well! Shop online and choose from a range of costumes, including vampire costumes, witches, demon costumes, etc.
A cozy Halloween movie night
You might not be someone who is up for going crazy with Halloween decorations and costumes. And that’s all right! You don’t always have to be extravagant in your celebrations, especially during these times. You can opt for a cozy celebration with your family or partner or your besties without any razzle-dazzle. Take out your fuzzy rug or blanket, spice up some eggnog and popcorns, and bring out that karaoke microphone for a Halloween music night.
If you are feeling lazy, order some takeout food and enjoy the movie time - you deserve that time with your closest people. So spend this holiday in comfort, leisure and all the love.
Play Halloween games
Games bring life to the party and what can be better than playing fun games in a cozy Halloween get-together. If you are a family and playing with your children, go for entertaining and educational games like model building, solving puzzles, etc. If you are a group of adults, you can opt for games like beer pong, cards, darts, truth or dare, never have I ever, etc.
Moreover, if you want to keep the spirit of Halloween ongoing, go for classic Halloween-themed games like Pumpkin balloon popping, Frankenstein bowling, murder mystery game, pass-it-on ghost stories, candy corn relay race, etc.
