Halloween may only be one night, but in Cape Coral, we celebrate this spooky holiday all month long. With all of the creepy decorations, it’s hard not to break into the Halloween spirit and begin the search for a night packed with screams and jumps. If you’ve decided to visit our coastal city with the entire family, you’re in for a treat. The area is home to plenty of kid-friendly activities and attractions that will bring the entire family together. Check out our favorite kid-friendly activities for Halloween in Cape Coral below:

Make Halloween Decorations

Get the entire family in the Halloween spirit by crafting your very own Halloween decorations. Whether your family is a pro at making DIY arts and crafts or taking their very first swing at it, there is plenty of fun to be had. By making your own decorations you can keep the costs low and transform the inside and outside of your vacation rental into a spooktacular creation. A few easy decorations you can craft in the comfort of your kitchen include magic potion bottles, vampire bat leaves, paper bat garlands, custom candlesticks, and spiderweb wreaths. Beware! Making your own Halloween decorations is a spooky amount of fun.

Go Trick-or-Treating

Take your little ghouls, witches, and monsters trick-or-treating Halloween night in Cape Coral! This kid-favorite activity is the perfect way to explore Cape Coral while stirring up plenty of fun. The kiddos can show their head-to-toe costumes off to the many businesses in town that decorate and pass out candy. Once you’ve filled up your candy buckets, be sure to head home and enjoy a few of your new favorite treats.

Have a Scary Movie Marathon

In celebration of Halloween, there’s often nothing better than a scary movie marathon. Complete with Halloween classics, such as Hocus Pocus, Edward Scissorhands, The Adams Family, Beetlejuice, and of course, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Gather the entire family for a night filled with Halloween movies, tasty treats, and plenty of candy. All of our vacation rentals in Cape Coral feature spacious kitchens perfect for preparing the ultimate Halloween spread and cozy living rooms for streaming movies. If it’s not too hot outside, crack open a few windows to allow the night breeze to send a chill through the air. Make sure you pop popcorn so the entire family has something to anxiously munch on during the movie.

Have A Pumpkin Carving Contest

Is there any activity that screams family fun more than a pumpkin carving contest? Cape Coral is home to many pumpkin patches where you can pick the perfect pumpkin to craft into a spooky creation. This timeless activity is a great time to get creative and see who in the family has the best carving skills. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert carver, there are plenty of designs to take your pumpkins to the next level. For the kiddos looking to transform their pumpkin into a spooky creation, a few designs to consider are witches, ghosts, and monsters full of teeth. But not all pumpkins need to be scary, many child favorites include cats, butterflies, flowers, and stars. Regardless of who wins the pumpkin carving contest, it will be a treat to see them all displayed on your vacation rental’s porch! So if this is an activity your family enjoys, you may want to consider our Cape Coral vacation properties to start planning your Halloween trip today!

Play Truth or Scare

We all know truth or dare, but have you ever played truth or scare? This Halloween game is the perfect way to spend the evening laughing and having fun with the family. Similar to truth or dare, this frightful game is a blast. A few examples of a truth card include “if you were a pirate, what would be your name?” or “if you could only save one person from the witch’s curse, who would it be”. As far as scare goes, prompts include “set up a game of limbo and challenge the group” or “pretend to jump into an imaginary pile of leaves every 10 minutes”. Truth or scare is harmless fun the entire family will enjoy!

Bake Halloween Treats

Candy isn’t the only Halloween treat you can munch on this season. If you’ve ever watched the many Halloween baking shows on television, you’ll know there are plenty of spooky treats that you can create in the kitchen. Whether you’re looking to bake frosted spider cookies, ghoulish ghost brownies, or mini donuts decorated as pumpkins, you are sure to find a recipe to satisfy the entire family’s craving. Inside all of our vacation rentals in Cape Coral, are beautiful kitchens fully equipped with everything you need to bake a delicious batch of treats. Our kitchens include ovens, stoves, and plenty of kitchen gadgets to prepare all of the ingredients.
