It’s almost time for trick-or-treating! Play a fun game to make the night last longer or keep little ones busy when it’s too early to start knocking on doors. This free printable Halloween scavenger hunt includes lots of spooky fun things to look for while walking around your neighborhood.
On Halloween, my kids can finish their dinner and be dressed in record time. It’s like second Christmas around here. As much as I appreciate their motivation, I also know that taking them through the neighborhood at 5:31 p.m. is not going to make me a popular person. There are a few younger kids out and about in the early evening hours, but most of the school-aged kids wait until just before dark to start trick-or-treating.
In our neighborhood, Halloween is a big deal. I don’t think I can accurately explain it.
Most of the houses are elaborately decorated. People sit on their porches or in the front yard to hand out candy, small toys, and sometimes homemade baked goods. The sidewalks are shoulder-to-shoulder on some blocks. Teenagers are welcome.

If you also need to keep the kids busy or are just looking to add some extra (non-sugary) fun to your Halloween, try a scavenger hunt. I made this printable Halloween scavenger hunt with 25 different things to find and check off the list. There are several things on the list that are easy and a few that might be a little harder to find.

Make up your own rules or challenge your kids to find everything on the list. This could easily take up most of your evening, although I don’t think anything could really distract my kids from candy.
