Pumpkin and Chills

If you are looking for a nice night indoors with movies and pumpkin treats, then keep reading. Grab a pumpkin, cut it open, then scoop out the seeds. Bake them in the over, and you’ve cut a perfectly crunchy treat to munch on during your movie.

While you have your pumpkin open, carve a face out of it, and then spray it with black spray paint. This creepy pumpkin will make sure no one will interrupt your movie marathon.

If you don’t want to make anything, head over to Starbucks before the evening and pick up a seasonal Pumpkin Spice Latte. Sip on this during your chilling night.

After you get all of your treats, you are going to have to find some movies. Netflix has every movie you need. From kid-friendly movies to some really scary ones, Netflix has all the movies to enjoy your October. Just make sure to grab a blanket to cover your eyes with for the scary parts!
