7 Ideas for Celebrating Halloween at Home

Whether or not you have other Halloween events scheduled, celebrating this Halloween at home can be a lot of fun.


Below are a few ideas for having some fun with Halloween-themed goodies and activities with your whole family from the youngest tot to the oldest senior.
 

You can make a scarecrow out of old clothes and shoes that you don't want to wear anymore. Depending on how many family members are involved, you might even want to make several scarecrows. Stuff it with old newspapers or straw and use a belt to hold the shirt to the pants. You can get as creative as you like for the head, using whatever you can find such as a pumpkin-shaped bucket or large ball.



A jack-o'-lantern is a hollowed out pumpkin that has a face carved into it. You can buy a carving kit that provides everything you need to cut and empty out the pumpkin's insides, or you can use knives from the kitchen. Make sure you save the seeds when you are emptying the pumpkin out so that you can roast them for a crunchy treat.

3. Tell Spooky Halloween Stories
 

Getting in the mood for a scary Halloween is easy when you turn off the lights and tell a few ghost stories. You can choose one storyteller or let everyone take turns. Make sure that you have a flashlight handy, just in case someone gets scared. 

You might even want to turn the flashlight on and point it at the individual who is telling the story. 

You should be careful when telling scary stories in front of small children. It's better to wait until they are asleep for the night before you begin telling scary stories.
 

4. Bake Halloween Sugar Cookies or Cupcakes

 
Halloween sugar cookies are colorful and tasty. You'll need a sugar cookie recipe, the ingredients (including colored sugar sprinkles), cookie sheets, and lots of helpful hands.
 If your family prefers cupcakes to cookies, whip up a batch of your favorite cake flavor. Once the cupcakes are baked, top them with frosting and colorful Halloween sprinkles.
 
6. Decorate the Windows for Halloween
 
If you are looking for some old-fashioned fun, bring out the construction paper, crayons, scissors, and tape. Each person can make a Halloween-themed decoration to put up on one of the windows. There are so many different options, from pumpkins and ghosts to candy corn and witches! If you intend to save the decorations for future use, remember to have everyone put their name and the date on the back of their artwork.
 

 
If you have young children in the family, make sure that they are tucked in for the night before turning on your scary Halloween movie. For snacks, why not eat some of the cookies or cupcakes that your family made?
 
There are plenty of ways to celebrate Halloween at home rather than going out. You might even want to plan for a whole day of fun with the family, depending on what everyone wants to do.

Make sure that you plan your event well and get the supplies that you'll need before the day arrives.

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
