Some people are so infatuated with Halloween that they spend months preparing for the big day. With all the parties, parades and celebrations, the season is enjoyed by adults as much as kids. If pumpkins, ghouls and ghosts are on your to-do list, here are four ways to make this Halloween extra special!
1. Get Scared Out of Your Gourd
Halloween isn’t complete without some truly frightening fun. Make it a point to visit a scary haunted house, or walk the terrifying trail that’s part of this year’s Halloween attractions Maryland. These creepy activities are perfect for both adults and older kids, and will scare you out of your gourd!
2. Visit a Local Farm
To really appreciate the beauty of the fall season, visit a local pumpkin patch or apple orchard. Many local farms host hayrides, feature corn mazes and let you pick your own apples and pumpkins. Plus, it’s not officially autumn until you buy fresh apple cider and cinnamon-sugar donuts!
3. Hold a Pumpkin Painting Party
Whether you have kids or not, a pumpkin painting party wearing fancy dress is an innovative idea. Purchase enough small pumpkins for the entire crew along with brushes, acrylic paints and seasonal treats. You won’t have to worry about sharp knives around the kids and grown-ups will love getting creative, too!
4. Bake Some Frighteningly Good Treats
Halloween is a great time of year to warm up the kitchen with delicious baked goods. Mix up a batch of cookies or cupcakes and decorate with frosting, sprinkles and candy corn. Then, try your hand at making some old-fashioned popcorn balls and candy apples for yourself and your favorite trick-o-treaters.
Halloween is a gorgeous time and with a little extra planning, you’ll enjoy the season even more. This year, take in a haunted trail walk, go apple picking and cook up delicious fall treats.
