Fun Ways to Celebrate Halloween

Candy corn, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns and black cats can only mean one thing… Halloween is almost here! It’s always fun to dress up and go trick-or-treating on Halloween, but the team at Tiger Leasing thought we’d share some other fun ways to celebrate this spook-tacular season:

Trick or treating for a cause 
It’s fun to go trick-or-treating, but wouldn’t it be double the fun to go trick-or-treating while also raising money to help others? Unicef makes that a possibility! Trick-or-treat for Unicef is a charity effort and campaign to end the suffering of kids around the globe where instead of trick-or-treating for candy, you trick-or-treat for coins. Teach your kids the value of helping others this Halloween or go with a group of your friends to raise money for Unicef.

Terror-tastic movie party 
This Halloween, pop a bowl of popcorn and pop in a scary movie! The Chicago Tribune recently released a list of the top 25 Scariest Halloween movies so if you’re looking for a fright, pick a movie from this list to watch on Halloween night. Be sure to invite some friends over for your scary movie-thon…you won’t want to be scared while you’re alone!

Creepy crawly scavenger hunt 
Scavenger hunts are fun any time of the year, but the spookiness of Halloween makes for a perfect time for a creepy crawly scavenger hunt! Many people thing scavenger hunts are just for kids, but you can create them for people of all ages. Check out these ideas for an adult scavenger hunt:
Gather things that look like:
  • a spider
  • a spider web
  • an eyeball
  • a crooked finger
  • werewolf fur
  • a bird's claws
Gather things that sound like:
  • bones cracking
  • the wind
  • a screech
  •  a hammer
  • nails scratching 
  • a ghost

After each scavenger hunt team brings as many items as they can from your list, give prizes to the team with who has the best or most items from the original list!

Have a monster mash at work
This year, Halloween falls on a Wednesday so why not bring the party to the office? A week or two before Halloween, coordinate with other employees to have an office party where everyone brings some Halloween party food and dresses up. Don’t forget to have everyone vote for the best costume!

A night of fright
What better time of year to tour a haunted place than Halloween? Haunted Places in America features castles, houses and more across the country that are said to be haunted and give information on each place as well as a link to each destination’s Website for more details. If you’re looking for a night of fright, check out one of these featured haunted places.

From ghouls and bones to tomb stones, Halloween is one night of the year where we’re all looking for some fear! How do you plan to celebrate Halloween? Let us know with a comment below or share with us on our Facebook page.
