5 Fun Halloween Activities For Teens That Are Too Old For Trick-Or-Treating
There comes a time in everyone’s life when they are “Too Old” to go Trick-Or-Treating. Our neighbors tend to frown upon 14 or 15-year-olds dressed in costumes and showing up on their doorsteps asking for candy. There really is no technical age cut-off, but there seems to be an awkward age gap where you are too old for Trick-Or-Treating, and too young to attend a wild costume party unsupervised. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun this Halloween. We put together a list of Halloween activities that are perfect for teens!
In October Haunted Houses start popping up all over our local neighborhoods. Depending on whether they are run by a charity or an actual business, some of the Haunted Houses are even free to attend. There is nothing more fun than squealing through a dark building with your BFF’s while you get the living daylights scared out of you. If you are feeling really ambitious and your parents are on board, you could even transform your own garage or living room into a haunted house and invite your pals over for some ghoulish fun.

Scary Movie Marathon
You can throw a scary movie marathon, and camp out in the living room with your pals, eating candy and watching some spooky classic Halloween movies like “Scream,” “The Ring,” or “I Know What You Did Last Summer.” If you live in a residential area, you can even pass out candy to Trick-Or-Treaters while you are watching your movies. Just because you are a little too old for it, doesn’t mean you can’t still participate!
If you live in a more rural area, then you most likely have been to a corn maze at some point. It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, there is something exciting about running through a life-size maze and truly getting lost over and over. It’s a great way to celebrate Halloween, AND hang out with your friends.
So, your mom won’t let you go to that wild Halloween party that the seniors are throwing this year, with absolutely no supervision. Most communities off some sort of alternative, at the local fire house or town center. A well-lit, well supervised, and drug and alcohol-free party is the perfect place for young teens. And, most of those parties have costume contests. Make this year your best Halloween costume yet and take home the trophy! Get your friends to enter in to the contest too for some healthy competition.
