10 Ways to Have a Socially Distant Halloween

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

Host a Trunk or Treat outside in your neighborhood where you can abide by your town’s social distancing guidelines. This Galaxy Trunk or Treat idea is out of this world!

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.

Get Creative!

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!

You could even use these Free Halloween Printable BINGO Boards or this fun Halloween Scavenger Hunt Printable and give the winner some extra treats!

Make or Buy a Halloween Pinata
