The countdown to Halloween has begun! And to celebrate my favorite time of the year I designed a free Halloween bucket list printable with some fun Halloween traditions to do with your family. Do one every day or pick your favorites for a full weekend of fun – it’s up to you!

Family Halloween Bucket List Ideas
1.Go on a hayride. Usually they have these at the pumpkin patches but there’s always haunted hayrides that you can do if you have older kids.
2. Decorate a pumpkin. Schedule a night with the family to decorate pumpkins, you can make your favorite character or opt for something easy for the kids like some no-carve ideas.
3. Go through a corn maze.
4. Pick Halloween costumes. We love the huge selection at Party City, they carry everything you need for your Halloween festivities. Picking out costumes is always a big deal, so we make an event of it. First we pick out our costume, then head over to pick out accessories like hats, props, wigs, trick or treat buckets, etc. Little J LOVES Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Nickelodeon, so he ended up picking out the Raphael Muscle Costume, but because he wasn’t sure which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle he wanted to be he picked out the Donatello sunglasses that are shaped like his eye mask so he can switch characters throughout the night by wearing his Donatello sunglasses or his Raphael mask. After the costumes and accesorries are picked, we always make sure to grab our trick-or-treat buckets for the night. And of course, when we get home that means the kids have to try on all of the costumes complete with all of their accessories. Which means costume photo shoot, it’s always easier to get costumes pictures before trick or treat night.
Head over to your Party City and join the Nick Haunted Party!
5. Go to a pumpkin patch. Our local pumpkin patch usually has a ton of fall family activities but if you can’t make it to one, you could even visit your local grocery store to pick out pumpkins.
6. Go apple picking. Go to an apple orchid and pick some apples. Then use the apples to bake some yummy fall treats.
8. Jump in the leaves.
9. Bake Halloween treats. You could decorate some haunted gingerbread houses or pick one of these spooktacular Halloween treats for kids.
10. And of course, go trick-or-treating! Visit your local Party City for all of your Halloween & trick-or-treating must haves!
