With the convergence of a full moon, a blue moon, daylight saving time and Saturday celebrations — plus the unprecedented events of this year — Halloween 2020 will truly be one to remember. Much has changed … but our love for the fun, fright, and delight of Halloween is strong as ever. So let’s unleash our Halloween inspiration — to celebrate the season in safe, fun, unexpected ways!
 
  • Porch Pics
Commemorate this once in a Blue Moon Halloween with some epic porch pics! Grab your selfie-stick, gear up and get out there for some #halloweenporchpics. Don’t forget to show off your Halloween houses, pet costumes and favorite little monsters!
 
  • Candy Stations
Unleash your imagination and let the kids run amok all through the house, both inside and out! Pull out all the stops with a variety of different candy stations, custom made with your little crew in mind!
 
  • Dress for Dinner
Don’t just wear the costume… become the costume! Plan a Halloween feast for your fam with one simple rule… everyone must stay in costume AND in character for the entire meal! Give each participant some time to come up with an accent and a backstory before the night begins then the laughter and the memories will be endless!
 
  • Costume Tik Toks
Inspiration abounds when it comes to making a like-worthy Tik Tok. Try the family costume challenge and flash from smallest to largest family member wearing the same costume! Don’t forget fido!
 
  • Scavenger Hunt House
Find inspiration in Halloween movies, music and more! Create different theme rooms throughout the house and send the kids on a scavenger hunt for fun swag. Hide candy, toys and prizes or even make some gift certificates to stay up late, choose the movie or eat an extra piece of candy. Keep the big kids engaged by including QR codes and pic challenges!
 
  • Halloween Karaoke
Whether you’re pulling off a tribute to Thriller or takin’ it back to the old school with some Monster Mash, a Halloween hit list for a night of Karaoke is sure to bring the house down. Up the ante with awards for the best impersonation, funniest choreography or the greatest overall showman!
 
  • Halloween Piñata
Here’s a fun way for the kids to get candy without the spread of germs! Add some Halloween tunes and turn your evening into a family game night with the piñata as the grand finale!
 
  • Grown Folk Fun
If you’ve never been to a murder mystery, here’s your chance to go all out with an online murder mystery party! Invite your friends and fam to don a costume and join in on the fun. Design your own party or sign up for one online.
 
Celebrate that extra daylight saving hour with a late-night creature feature! Pull an all-nighter and hand craft a must-see movie list of your top 3 fun shows… afterall, it’s Saturday! Just don’t forget the candy!
 
  • Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF
UNICEF USA is launching a virtual Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF platform and through the month of October, you can add purpose to Halloween by collecting lifesaving donations for UNICEF virtually. In honor of the 70th anniversary of this iconic American tradition, this year’s initiative will be comprised of digital, interactive, fun, and empowering experiences all while teaching children the importance of giving back and helping others.
