This year, due to Covid-19 I'm sure some of you are at a loss of how to celebrate this years Halloween. I was too. Up until about a week ago, I found myself researching some fun and easy stay at home activities for this unique October 31st. It is on a Saturday this year after all, so why not celebrate!? Here is our top 3 picks to get your spooky on in your own home this Halloween.
1. Host a Spooky Family Dinner
Why not have fun with your usual family dinner? Everyone loves food, so this is a great one for all ages. Get creative and make your own decorations using leaves in your backyard or head to the dollar store to pick up inexpensive decorations to get spooky at dinner. Create a theme and dress up! (think The Addams Family!) You might even try your hand at a new recipe and put a Halloween twist on it.

Get festive by replacing chocolate on your smores by using your favorite Halloween candy. Grab your popcorn and and get the freakish film rolling! This is a great way to celebrate this Halloween.
