It’s that time of year! Halloween is on Saturday, and this year it comes with some extra special surprises – the end of daylight savings time and a blue moon. Halloween will also look different this year because of the ongoing pandemic. Many families and communities are skipping the traditional trick or treating routine for something more in line with the Centers for Disease Control’s Halloween guidelines.
We’ve put together a quick list of some safe and fun activities for you and your family this Halloween:
Virtual Costume Contest
Kids love dressing up for Halloween. Whether superheroes, princesses or favorite characters from television or books – the costume is central to Halloween. Why not hold a virtual costume contest for you and your friends? It will give your children the opportunity to see their friends dressed up while maintaining social distancing.
Make Face Masks Part of Your Costume
Over the past several months, we’ve seen just how creative face masks can be. Try working the face mask into your child’s costume.
Host a Socially Distant Outdoor Movie
Drive-in movies have made a big comeback over the past several months. If you have the space, why not take it up a notch by hosting a socially distant outdoor movie? This will ensure everyone’s safety by staying at least 6-feet apart while also having a good time.
Safe Candy Distribution
If you still want to give out candy this Halloween, consider safe options like individually sealed candy bags or the “candy chute” idea made popular on social media. Be sure to wash your hands before and after handling any candy and use hand sanitizer frequently.
Whichever option or activities you choose for Halloween, we hope that you have a great time this weekend. At HHHunt, we believe it’s how you live that matters and know that these responsible, low-risk activities are perfect for a safe and fun Halloween.
