Tips for Celebrating Halloween at Home

Celebrating Halloween at Home | Chip Wynn Motors | Paducah, KY

Halloween has always been a great excuse to get creative and enjoy family-friendly activities. With families here in Paducah, Kentucky, and around the country staying at home for the spooky holiday this year, being creative and having fun has never been more important. Here are a few ways you and your loved ones can have some scary fun celebrating Halloween at home.

First, get creative with spooky arts and crafts. Making decorations, props, costumes and more can be a fun way for you and your family to work together, and a great way to decorate your home for the holiday.

Next, bust out the measuring cups and cookie trays for a creepy cooking adventure. Create Halloween-themed dinners and deserts, and depending on the age of your young ones, don’t be afraid to experiment with some gross-looking dishes.

Speaking of eerie edibles, don’t forget to include a pumpkin or two in your at-home celebration. Carving and decorating pumpkins is a beloved family tradition, and a great way to set a spooky mood inside or outside your home. While you’re at it, why not turn those leftover pumpkin seeds into a salty snack for the family to share?

Finally, turn down the lights and enjoy the chills and thrills of a Halloween-themed movie night. Frightening films are a great way to celebrate the scariest time of the year, and with so many to choose from, putting together a macabre marathon that best fits your family should be easy.

Happy Halloween from your friends at Chip Wynn Motors!

Most kids look forward to Halloween all year long. The costumes, the candy, the spooky ghost stories—what’s there not to love? Be sure to make the most of your holiday this year with these trick or treat safety tips from Chip Wynn Motors.

Be a Good Pedestrian

You should always practice good traffic and pedestrian laws, but Halloween is a great time to begin teaching these to young children. Stay on sidewalks, only cross at the crosswalks, and be aware of cars.

Check Your Costume

Before your head out for the night, have your kids try on their costumes and walk around the house a little. See that there are no tripping hazards, that masks aren’t too tight, and that the kids feel comfortable.

Stay Together

Never let your kids trick or treat alone. Older kids may be fine going out together as groups of two or more, but use your best judgment. When in doubt, it’s best to send a chaperone along with each group.

Check the Candy

Before your kids dive into their well-earned stash, you should check to make sure that none of the pieces have been tampered with. Take a few minutes to look over the candy for any signs of tears or punctures in the wrappers. Once you’ve ensured that the stash is safe, your kids are free to dig in.
