Halloween will be here in just a few weeks, and this year will definitely be different than previous years. Some families are opting out on trick-or-treating, while others are trying to find the safest way to still enjoy Halloween, while keeping up with the traditions. Here are some safety tips and fun ideas for your family for this spooky holiday, whether you are going out to fill your bag with candy, or staying home with the fam.

For Trick-Or-Treaters:

Wear a Mask- We should be use to this by now, and most costumes include a mask, but make sure to keep it on when around others.

Keep a Distance- Also something we should be use to by now, make sure to keep a 6 feet distance from others.

Stay with Family- It’s so fun to go trick-or-treating with friends, but if possible, just stick with family, or the people you live with to prevent the spread of COVID.

Stay Seen- Make sure to wear reflective material, and carry lights so you can be seen by cars in the area.

Make sure the neighborhood you are going to is okay with having trick-or-treaters, as many people are not participating on the festivities this year. If house and porch lights are off, please respect their privacy and do not ring doorbell or knock for candy.

For those staying home, here are some fun ideas you can do with close friends and family, while still enjoying this fun holiday.

Movie Night- Make some Halloween themed snacks, grab a bag of candy, and watch all of your favorite spooky movies. If you can keep a distance, invite the neighbors or friends over to join the fun.

Party- Set up some fun decorations, put on some music and have a fun Halloween party. Again, if you are able to keep a distance, invite the neighbors or a couple friends over.

Hand out Candy- Dress up and wait for trick-or-treaters. Some people have come up with clever ways to hand out candy while keeping a distance. Think of your own fun way, or go online for some inspiration.

Have a safe and spooky Halloween
