Five Ways To Have A Low Key Halloween!

Hi Friends! I hope you’re doing well.

I can’t believe it’s already Halloween week! I love this Holiday. It’s just so fun and creative, plus all the activities are my favorite.

I think as the holiday’s keep coming, I am enjoying them more and more now that I am a mom. Even though my son is still little, it’s exciting to watch him learn new things and have fun.

We had our first family pumpkin carving this weekend and I love watching bub get curious about what we were doing and have him help us and do his own thing.

Although, I am probably the worst pumpkin carver. I totally did the stencil wrong and mine was a flop….ooops.

Of course my husband laughs at me, but then he attempted a tough stencil and his fell apart too sooooo…. ha 😉

I am thankful my son is still very little, so this year won’t be any different but my heart goes out to all the parents that have trick-or-treating aged children and are just trying to make the best of it!

For all of you that are trick-or-treating I pray you have great weather and a fun and safe time!

In case you aren’t though, here’s some fun ideas to have a fun but low key Halloween!

Have a movie night!

Put on your costumes or your Halloween pjs and watch some spooky movies. Don’t forget the candy and popcorn!

Game night for the win!

I absolutely love game nights and you can even make it fun by creating your own Halloween games.

Pumpkin carve/ Halloween crafts

It’s always fun to get crafty! Plus save your pumpkin carving for Halloween night.

Visit family

Trick-or-Treat at your family’s houses. That way you feel more comfortable and the kids can still get some candy.

Baking day!

Make some fun spooky cookies. Bake an apple pie or pumpkin bread. Have fun with it!

There’s so many things you can do that will still make this year a memorable and special one!

I hope you all have a fabulous Halloween week!

I hope it’s full of fun and adventures and as always, thanks for reading!

Happy Halloween 🎃👻

    Such a cute family photo. How did he react to the way the pumpkin feels inside? I remember my own kids saying squishy over and over. Too cute.

    Since my townhome neighborhood really doesn’t have many trick-or-treaters (I had only one last year), my husband and I usually just watch a movie like Halloweentown or Harry Potter to “get in the mood” and we stuff our own faces with candies and “spooky” drinks. It’s a lot of fun and way more chill! In years past we’ve gone to Halloween parties with friends, but this year we’ll be avoiding gatherings to stay safe! I hope you have a fun one. It looks like your pumpkin-carving was a blast… despite them falling apart haha!

    Aw, your photos are so adorable! It really captured the Halloween festivities quite well. I’m glad you suggested to leave the carving for Halloween day; I made the mistake of carving mine too early and he rotted away, lol.

    Oh my goodness, that is such a good idea to put a plastic sheet down before you start carving – we’re about to do ours so this is brilliant timing! Hope you have a happy and safe Hallowe’en 🙂

    I can only imagine how difficult it must be to explain to a younger child why they can’t go trick-or-treating this year if they are used to doing so. I know that most of our province has been given the green light to go ahead with the tradition as long as we take extra precautions (masks, handwashing, etc.), however, there are some ‘hot spots’ that have been told that Halloween, as we know it, is cancelled this year.

      Oh I know! I couldn’t imagine!!! Same here, I think most will still carefully trick or treat. I am happy our little guy is too young still. Makes it easier!❤️

    These are such great ideas for a low key halloween! I love to bake halloween themed desserts too so that is probably what I will do as well

    So many fun activities for Halloween! We’re not the best pumpkin carvers at my house but we have fun trying– especially when we’re enjoying snacks. Hope your little one has a fun day dressing up 😊

    We all had a jolly time carving pumpkins today, and mine cracked in several places as I attempted an owl carving . . . fall smells make the day perfect with a pumpkin spice bundt cake in the oven, and I love the idea of including a movie night. 🙂

    Great ideas!! There’s still a lot that you can do at home without going out even on Halloween 🙂 We had a candy scavenger hunt at our house
