Here are 10 ways to make the most of Halloween this year, social distance style! Get ready to have fun no matter what with these ideas!
This year, Halloween is going to look different, we can count on that. I recently had a discussion with some of my friends about what to do this Halloween after our town cancelled their own celebration.
The fun doesn’t have to stop! It just will look a little different. Who knows, maybe you will find a new, fun tradition to take part in on Halloween.
Here are 10 Great Ways to have a Socially Distant Halloween
Trunk or Treat
Boo! Your Neighbors!
We love doing this! Create a bucket of treats and other goodies and then drop them at your friends’ or neighbors’ houses. Ring the doorbell and run! The fun part is having them figure out who Boo’d them! You can use these great Free BOOing Printables from Cook Eat Go or these fun “You’ve Been Booed Signs” from Play Party Plan.
Reverse Trick or Treating
Instead of neighbors giving YOU candy, you give THEM candy! Leave an empty bowl on your porch and have friends and neighbors fill it with candy as they walk by.
Keep a Distance
Put a table vertically so that you and your trick or treaters have plenty of space between you as you hand out candy.
Create some sort of fun and creative way to incorporate a way to give out candy socially distant apart of your Halloween decor.
How about this cute Halloween Candy Wreath, it’s perfect for this!
Trick or Treat at Home
Hide the kids favorite Halloween candy around the house. Turn off the lights, play spooky music and give them flashlights to go on a “haunted hunt” for their candy. You can even decorate the house with Halloween decorations to make it extra spooky! The kids will love these free Halloween coloring pages you can print out.
Make it an Old-Fashioned Halloween
Make it an old fashioned Halloween! You can watch a scary movie, make popcorn balls, have some Halloween desserts, carve a pumpkin and bob for apples!!
Treats like these easy no bake mini mummy cakes are perfect and the kids can even make them themselves!
Halloween Block Party
Organize a “block party trick or treating” just for your closest neighbors.
Go for a Halloween Decoration Drive or Walk
We usually do this on Christmas, but why not do it on Halloween too? Drive around the neighborhood with some apple cider and treats and check out all of the spooky Halloween decorations!
Make or Buy a Halloween Pinata
We all know the kids are all about the Halloween treats, so what better to hold them all then a fun Halloween Pinata? And when the kids get all of their candy sorted out, they can do a fun Halloween candy scavenger hunt!
