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!

Hack #1:

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.

Hack #2:

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.

Hack #3:

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.

Hack #4:

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.

Hack #5:

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!
