Things to Do on Halloween

If you’re wanting to do something on Halloween, you’ll have plenty to choose from. The traditional thing to do on All Hallows’ Eve is to go to a party or trick-or-treating, but we’ve got a few other suggestions for you in this week’s The Element Apartment Homes Blog. We hope these suggestions help to spark some ideas for what you can do instead of partying or trick-or-treating here in Mt Prospect, IL. 

Pumpkin Carving

Head to a pumpkin patch or the local grocery store to pick up some pumpkins you can carve! While you’re there, you can purchase some carving tools to give yourself an easier time while you carve your favorite picture or Halloween themed monster! If you wanted to, you could invite your friends over to carve some pumpkins with you and make it a competition to see who could carve the best pumpkin. 


Instead of participating in the craziness of Halloween, you could spend the time baking some delicious treats! From regular cookies to Halloween themed treats, baking is a great way to spend some time. If you start early enough, you could even give those cookies away to close friends and family as their trick-or-treat. 

Halloween/Horror Movies

Halloween is the time to watch some Halloween or horror movies! Thankfully, there are plenty to choose from. Instead of going out and being overtly social, you can snuggle into your couch curled up with blankets and a cup of hot cocoa to scare the pants off yourself. If you’re too scared to watch some horror movies alone, feel free to invite some friends over! Being scared together is a lot better than being scared alone.
