I have been racking my brain for ideas to celebrate and still be responsible, so here’s 6 ideas that I’ve come up with to keep Halloween fun and safe.
- STILL DECORATE
- DRESS UP
It’s important to try and keep the traditions, if possible, especially for the kids. So, dress up and keep it fun, remember to incorporate a face mask into your costume if you’re heading outside.
- CANDY TABLE
Set up outside, add some chairs and a table. Put candy in bags or paper cups and put them on your candy table. This is a great time to decorate your table. Sit outside to make sure kids take one bag and don’t touch multiple bags. Put some hand sanitizer on your table so little visitors can keep their hands clean.
- STILL CELEBRATING SIGN
Put up a sign so visitors know your rules when they arrive. We have a great free printable option here, available for the first 10 customers.
- SOCIALLY DISTANT CANDY
Print and laminate a large sheet of paper that states “Knock then stand here, X”. Place it on the ground 6 feet from your door. When someone knocks, open the door just slightly and attach a candy bag to the end of a broom stick and push it out to your trick or treaters. Or make this great candy slide, designed by The Wicked Makers.
- STAY IN
Have fun at home, do a fun Halloween craft, bake or watch a spooky movie, get creative and carve pumpkins or do a candy hunt around the house. You can include friends and family by zoom but have fun.
