How to Celebrate Halloween during COVID-19

By Ryan Hellyer - Oct 07, 2020

Like many things this year, Halloween will be much different because of COVI-19. The CDC has called trick-or-treating a high-risk activity. So what are some alternatives? What are ways to safely enjoy Halloween this year?

 

Well the good news is that you still safely decorate your home for all the festivities. In fact make it a fun family activity to do all together. If you need some inspiration just head to our Pinterest page for spooky ideas click here.

 

Some other ideas on celebrating Halloween include

  • Having a virtual costume contest
  • Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance.
  • Create a Halloween candy hunt. Similar to an Easter egg hunt but you get to dress up.
  • A classic Halloween movie night.

 

Parades are all the rage in 2020 so feel free to have a Halloween parade for everyone to enjoy. If you are able to practice social distancing then head to a pumpkin patch (just bring hand sanitizer). This year stores like CVS and Target are preparing things called “Boo Bags” which are a great way to leave out candy for friends and neighbors.

 

If you do participate in those activities make sure to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds, maintain social distancing with members who are not from your household, and keep your mask on.
