Spooky Halloween: Shopkick Edition

Everyone knows Halloween is full of tricks and treats. Kids get to trick or treat, but we want to have our own fun! Here are five creative ways to scare your family and friends with the spookiest party this year:

1. A new take on spiking the punch bowl

Ready to serve up some spooky refreshments? First, grab a rubber glove and fill it with water. Place it in the freezer for a few hours, and then place the life-like “hand” in your punch bowl. Don’t forget to cut off the glove before serving your guests!

2. Hand soap made to scare

What better place to have guests pee their pants than in the bathroom? All you have to do is grab some toy spiders and put them inside a clear plastic hand soap dispenser. Your guests will never see it coming!

3. A ghoulish dinner

The spookiest chef in town goes to… you! Add a little black food coloring to your boiling water, and voila! You’ve got hungry guests and a scary feast. Bon appetit!

4. A fang-tastic trick

Have a vampire staying overnight? We’ve got the perfect way to store their fangs — fill up a clear glass of water and drop in a set of plastic vampire teeth! 

5. Ghostly greetings!

Create a spooky googly-eyed Halloween wreath on your front door. Buy white ping pong balls and hot glue them on a foam wreath. Then, add small and large googly eyes. This hack will spook your guests, guaranteed!

So there you go, the perfect way to celebrate Halloween with all your favorite ghouls and goblins. Don’t forget to earn kicks for all of your Halloween hosting essentials! Have a spooky Halloween and get ready to kick-or-treat!
