We get it. And we’ve got you covered. We searched high and low for you. Everything on our list is available for overnight delivery or in-store pickup at your local store. Or can be pulled off with items you have at home. Everything you need to scare them just enough— because not even a pandemic can stop Halloween.
THEME 1: SPOOKY MOVIE NIGHT
There are tons of Halloween kids’ movies (that won’t give them nightmares) for a classic movie night. You can go to town with a projector, sleeping bags, bean bags…the works. Or you can makeshift your own. Just pull out blankets, plenty of pillows, and if you’re lacking in white walls, your TV will do the trick. Popcorn, however, is non-negotiable.
