Indoor Halloween Fun for Families in Champaign-Urbana
No tricks, all treats! Stay warm and dray and still have fun with indoor Halloween options your kids will love.
Not even a forecast that includes low temps, rain, and possibly even snow right at trick or treat time can chill the spirits of all of the costume-clad Champaign-Urbana area children in pursuit of candy this Halloween.
But we all know our kids won’t give up the opportunity to get ALL OF THE CANDY so easily. Here are some tips for staying warm and making the best of a cold situation this Halloween.
ALTERNATIVES TO TRICK OR TREATING AROUND CHAMPAIGN-URBANA
Go Out to a Special (Indoor) Halloween Event
Get your trick or treating in early and/or indoors with one of these Indoor Halloween Trick or Treat Events.
Want to bundle in more fun? Go see the annual Crowley Pumpkin Glow in Mahomet and enjoy the frightful sites from the warmth of your car. For other indoor events happening around town Halloween day and night, check out our Halloween guide or our events calendar.
Try a Trunk or Treat
Yes, technically this is outside, but if the goal is to get a lot of candy, a Trunk or Treat could be a great alternative to traipsing all over town. Your child can fill up his or her bucket quickly without having to walk several blocks around the neighborhood (and some might move inside). There are several Trunk or Treats planned in the area this Halloween. Check out our Trunk or Treat guide to see if one is happening close to you.
Dine Out In Costume
Let your kids pick out a big bag of candy (if they have siblings, they can do a candy exchange) and then have dinner at one of their favorite restaurants. Pizza always tastes better when you’re dressed up as Elsa or Ironman. Better yet kids eat for Free (or cheap!) on Halloween with these deals.
Fun Night at Home
Offer your child a fun alternative to trick or treating and plan a fun night full of Halloween festivities at home. Watch your favorite Halloween movie, make a yummy Halloween treat, tell spooky stories, read a Halloween book, and pass out candy to hardy trick or treat-ers.
