How to be the Most Popular House on Halloween Night
Everyone can remember the most popular house to stop at when trick or treating as a child. It’s the house that you always make it a point to stop at. Usually, to having a winning house, all it takes is ensuring that you are handing out full-size candy bars but as we are still dealing with the pandemic, all kids could use a bit of magic and fun. Adults too! Here is a list of ideas on how to make your house the most popular house on the block during Halloween.
Haunted house aka haunted garage
Can you clear up space in your garage or set up a canopy outside? Having a small haunted space to walk through is always a big hit during Halloween. Sure, it’s fun collecting candy, but get the whole neighborhood into the Halloween spirit with some fun scares. Enlist a few people to pop out unexpectedly. You can set a spooky feel just with lights and a fog machine.
Hire ghoulish entertainers
Make a memorable night by hiring fun and spooky entertainers at your house or Halloween party. Have fire breathers and dancers enticing visitors to come up to your door. Or hire actors on stilts dressed in spooky apparel walking around giving everyone a bit of fright. Everyone will want pictures with these spooky people. This is a great way to enjoy the night and socialize without feeling like you are the one who has to put on the show.
Step up your house decorating game
Sure, hanging skeletons and putting out carved pumpkins are alright for Halloween décor but have your house stand out. There are so many amazing ideas to be found on Pinterest. Decorate your home with gigantic spiders that are crawling all-around your roof and windows. Put together a funny scene of skeletons on your front lawn. Use your imagination to make your Halloween house stand out.
Serve adult treats
Halloween is not just for kids! Have the adults join in on the fun! You can do this by providing the adults who are taking the little one’s trick or treating with warm alcoholic drinks such as a hot toddy. Every adult is going to make sure they stop by your house and it will be their most favorite stop on the block.
Set up an outdoor movie
There are some amazing Halloween movies! Set up a fun outdoor movie for neighbors to stop by. Provide popped popcorn and a place to rest for all that candy hunting they are doing. Show Halloween family-friendly movies such as Hocus Pocus or Adams Family. Make your home a great place to re-energize and rest so that they can get back out there to collect as much candy as they can.
Set up fun games & prizes
Everyone knows how to pop for apples, or the race to eat a donut on a string. Provide these fun games when a group of kids come to your home. Make it even more exciting by having the winner get an extra handful of candy or providing some awesome prizes such as a small gift card to amazon. Having fun games to play will help make your home a popular one on the block.
Partner with your next-door neighbor
Want your Halloween night to be epic? Enlist your next-door neighbors and come up with a haunted decoration that ties all the houses together. When putting two to three houses of creativity and spooky fun is a great way to make this night memorable for all the kids that live in your hood. Double the efforts mean double the Halloween spectacular! A decoration idea is putting together different scenes from a movie with skeletons acting it out.
