Maybe there’s a lack of parties this year or you simply don’t feel like going out this Halloween. Whatever the reason, it doesn’t mean you have to miss out on any of the fun.
There are plenty of things you can do to partake in the season’s spirit from the comfort of your home. Here are some of the easiest ways to celebrate Halloween at home alone.
One of the best ways to celebrate any holiday is by whipping up some seasonal treats. And Halloween is the perfect holiday to get creative with your confections, even if it starts with something tried and true like brownies (brownies are always a good idea!).
Create spooky decorative spiders on your brownies using melted chocolate chips and a toothpick. Add some edible googly eyes or try making mummy toppers or cobwebs out of marshmallows. However you decorate your brownies, letting your imagination run is part of the fun.
BāKIT Box features a fun Cobweb Brownie recipe kit with easy-to-follow instructions and all the ingredients you’ll need to make a delicious, ooey-gooey chocolate-y treat with a festive twist.
2. Watch Movies
One of the best things about Halloween is the movies associated with it. There’s something for everyone.
If you’re a horror fan, it’s the best time to watch spooky cult classics like A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. If that’s not your thing, then there are always iconic films like Hocus Pocus or Beetlejuice to turn to.
No matter what
you’re into, there’s nothing like lighting your favorite candles, gathering up your coziest blanket, and settling in for the season’s best flicks. Maybe you’ll munch on some of those festive brownies while you’re at it.
3. Carve a Pumpkin
Carving a pumpkin is one of the easiest ways to celebrate and get into the Halloween spirit. Nothing is more satisfying than paying a visit to the pumpkin patch. Maybe you grab a cup of apple cider while you’re perusing the pickings.
When it comes to carving, get creative! You can go classic with a spooky smile or perhaps you try something a little braver like a witch on a broomstick. And, of course, you can gather up the gutted pumpkin seeds and roast them for a tasty snack.
If you’re not into the whole mess of carving pumpkins, painting them works, too! All you need are some basic acrylic paints and some inspiration.
4. Dress Up Anyway
Just because you’re not going anywhere doesn’t mean you can’t dress up. In fact, dressing up can give you that extra boost to make your at-home celebrations feel even more special.
There are no rules here. Go all out with a full costume and makeup if you want to. There are tons of fun face painting tutorials out there you can follow for a festive look. Don’t be afraid to take a selfie or two!
If you’re not feeling the whole getup, keep it more low key and don a festive hat, sweater, or socks instead.
5. Pamper Yourself
Staying in is the perfect time to do a little self-care. This could be a nice bubble bath (maybe you have a seasonal bath bomb to toss in), painting your nails with festive colors and designs, doing a face mask, or even just taking a nap.
Maybe you sit down with a mug of tea and read a thriller novel. However you prefer to pamper yourself, don’t hold back. You deserve it!
6. Host a Bake-Off
Throwing a bake-off-themed party is a great way to bring your loved ones together to bond over a little friendly competition, all while enjoying some delicious sweet treats in the process. The best part? Everyone, even the youngest kids in your circle, can participate!
