This year, instead of Harvest Festivals, Halloween Parties, Haunted Houses, or door-to-door trick or treating, most families will be staying home. If you’re looking for some great ideas for a day or evening of family fun, I’ve got you covered!

Halloween at Home Ideas

When I lived in Portland, Oregon, our church held a Harvest Festival each Halloween. The Sunday School classrooms, cafeteria, and other areas were turned into festive party rooms. There was a cake walk, fishing game, apple bob, and more. Everyone would show up in costumes, wander from room to room gathering prizes and candy, and have a wonderful time. I loved the Harvest Festival and always look for something similar in our current celebrations. My Halloween at home activities reminds me of those fun times.

A friend told me about Shekinah–a Halloween alternative in Celebration of Light and Love. They decorate the yard, porch, and windows with white lights; turn on all of their house lights; eat white foods with white table settings, table cloths, and placemats; wear white clothes; and play soft music and then have a hymn sing-along after dinner. They read scriptures and maybe play a few board games before the evening ends. The idea is to bring light, rather than darkness, to the neighborhood.
