Have A Ghoulishly Good Time With These Clever Halloween Hacks
Make the most of your Spooktacular Weekend with these super simple and quite clever Halloween hacks!
Halloween Spooktacular Weekends are way more fun when everyone dresses for the occasion. Bring your costumes, a different one for every day of your stay if you’d like! For costumes on a budget, you can create a devilishly fabulous getup by using items from around your home or even picking up a few things from your local thrift store or Dollar Store.
As a family, come up with ideas on how to decorate your campsite or cabin for the weekend. Adding themed lights is the quickest way to bring some Halloween ambiance. Hang a string of orange LED lights to your RV awning, or decorate your cabin porch with paper bag jack-o-lanterns lit up with battery-operated LED tea lights. Add a festive tablecloth to the picnic table, a lawn flag, and sit a stuffed scarecrow or bony skeleton on your camping chairs.
When it comes to pumpkin carving and decorating, if you don’t want to fuss with sharp tools, especially around the little ones, use items like glitter, stickers, and water-based paint such as acrylic or tempera paint to decorate.
The treats may not disappear quite so quickly with all the candy your little monsters will gather during the weekend. If you find yourself overwhelmed with treats, here are a few ways to make use of leftover Halloween candy.
- Freeze it and add to milkshakes, sundaes, ice cream, and cookie dough later.
- Make your own trail mix by adding pretzels, nuts, and dried fruit to leftover candy like M&Ms.
End your eventful days on a yummy note around the campfire with bewitching s’mores. Simply substitute marshmallows for Halloween-themed Peeps. Big-box stores like Wal-Mart and Target sell these sweet treats in the form of jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, black cats, and Frankensteins. To make, roast a Peep over the campfire and sandwich in between graham crackers and chocolate pieces. Delicious!
