Explore Nature’s Bounty

Spend the afternoon at a local orchard, where you’re bound to find hay rides, bushels of apples and a pumpkin patch. Find one near you at Pumpkin Patches and More.

After you’ve tired yourselves out picking plenty of apples and pumpkins and navigating the corn maze, bring home your bounty for more fun. Use it up right away as an afternoon snack with these Smiley Apples or carve up those gourds and roast the seeds.

For pumpkin decorating inspiration, check out these non-carving options or turn your treasure into a carved piece of art with our templates.

Make It a Grave Affair

Spend the day spooking it up for Halloween with mummy-centric activities:

Wrap each other with toilet paper for a chilling effect

Get the kids involved in preparing Crescent Mummy Dogs and Mocha Mummies and munch on them for lunch or a snack.

Later, get your craft on by turning pumpkins into ghoulish mummies with a bit of gauze, glue and googly eyes.

Host a Magnificent Masquerade

Spend the day in disguise. Round up past costumes and have a fashion show before putting the finishing touches on this year’s getup. Then have fun making and decorating a giant cookie dressed as Frankenstein, or smaller treats disguised as werewolves.
