Here are a few more fun Halloween ideas from across the web!

  1. The Halloween spider pizza just uses black olives to make little spiders sitting over a pre-made supermarket pizza. Found on kidscraftroom.com.
  2. The Halloween candy bark is an easy recipe to make at home or at the campsite. It is so cute and colorful…and who doesn’t like chocolate bark? Found on justataste.com.
  3. For the adults on your Halloween camping adventure, make the Black Magic Martini from the MGM Grand. It uses only three ingredients but packs a creepy punch when you add a little dry ice. If you are near Las Vegas during the Halloween holiday, you should treat yourself by letting the MGM Grand bartender do the mixing for you!  Found on babble.com.  Babble Photos courtesy of MGM Grand, Photo Credit: Bryan Steffy
  4. The kids need a fun beverage too so take a few seconds to rim a clear plastic cup with some pop rocks and fill with orange soda then garnish with a Halloween ghost peep hanging on the rim. They will love the Spooky Shirley Temple drink for the special occasion. Found on nestofposies-blog.com.
  5. Using a hallowed out pumpkin to hold your bowl filled with ice and drinks is a festive replacement for the traditional camp cooler. Found on marthastewart.com.
  6. I’m always looking for a way to recycle old wine bottles. Painting them in Halloween themes can make a fun centerpiece. They can also double as candle holders for an eerie soft light. Found on lombardolagniappe.blogspot.com.
  7. Bat napkin holders are a cute way to add a little spooky touch to your table. These are made with construction paper and they make a fun project for the kids too. Found on womansday.com.
  8. Glue some wiggly eyes on your plastic cups for a fast and fun addition to your Halloween theme. Found on homemakinghacks.com.
  9. Skip the traditional camp lantern and use these spooky water jugs to light your path. These are fun, festive, easy AND they are functional too! Found on eighteen25.com.
  10. With a little bulletin board and construction paper you can turn your RV door into a Frankenstein Door. Found on mpmschoolsupplies.com Photo Source: pinterest.com | Chasidy Manis Hulett.

Top off your Halloween outdoor adventure by rounding out the trip with a few slightly spooky but not too strange stories around the campfire. (OK, I have to admit that I am a TOTAL wimp when it comes to scary movies and stories and I love getting a good solid 8 hours of sleep so I avoid the really freaky stuff and keep it light!)  If you add a little Halloween flair to your next camp trip…I’m guessing you will make fun memories that your family will cherish in the years to come.
