While trick-or-treating with the kids is probably one of the least socially distant things to do, celebrating Halloween this year does not need to come to a complete halt. Let’s get creative with the way we celebrate this fun day and breathe some new life into our traditions!
Might I suggest a new game of “toss” involving your trick or treaters. Have the little ones stand back (6 feet of course) and lightly toss the candy into their bags. This activity not only allows for distance between you and the trick or treaters, but also creates a new exciting game of catch for the kids.
If you’re not looking to toss the candy, you can look into creating a diy candy chute using pvc pipe or any other tube large enough to fit the candy down. There have been plenty of ways that others have put a spin on these chutes and even have decorated them Halloween-style!
Treat your house like a neighborhood, and trick or treat through each room! Try sticking different candy options behind each door to really mix things up and evoke the familiar feeling of not knowing what candy you’ll receive with trick or treating.
If all else fails, turn on a fun Halloween movie and enjoy the night with your loved ones (all dressed up of course).
