Une Halloween autrement terrifiante!

Article updated: 2022-10-19

At my house, no matter the temperature, we have fun on Halloween! We adapt and we invent ourselves. Here is my good game plan at all times:


While there is still light, we organize a parade, on foot or by bike, through the neighborhood streets to parade the costumed family. Talk to your neighbors about it, perhaps they will want to join in the masquerade, or play the role of balcony spectators!


Pssst! If you are planning a bike parade, also think about a costume that can be worn with a helmet or even a disguise that includes a bicycle! here are some ideas!


At nightfall, in the house or yard, go on a spooky candy hunt with a flashlight and Halloween music. The soundtrack of the film Bettlejuice always wins! Here are other songs for your evening and dancing:


Monster Mash

People Are Strange - The Doors

Hungry Like The Wolf - Duran Duran

Werewolf of London - Warren Zeron

Scary stories are always popular at Halloween. Build a blanket hut with your little ones to protect yourself from vampires and ghosts who want to scare you. Stuck for story inspiration? Am this link.

Here is 2 game ideas which are always a success here!

“Draw in the bag”

Fill a large bag (garbage bag, potato bag, witch's cauldron, etc.) with unusual pieces of clothing and accessories: glasses, cat ears, boas, Hawaiian skirts, ties, witch's hats, gloves... In short, everything whatever colorful, bizarre or terrifying you can find. We stand in a circle and spin the bag to the sound of the music. When the music stops, whoever has the bag in hand picks an item and must carry it as they see fit. The end result may be... surprising!

" The Mummy "

In teams of two, designate a Mummy and a Mummifier. The Mummifier, armed with a roll of toilet paper, will have a predetermined time (two minutes or the time of a song) to mummify his partner. In the end, the most beautiful mummy wins! Lots of laughs guaranteed!

So! Hoping that this inspires you to have good times with your family. If you have any other fun ideas, share them with us below the post Facebook !

Ultimately, all your kids want is to spend quality time with you. All it takes is a little (black!) magic to create indelible memories. Wishing you a most terrifying Halloween!
