Covid-19 has thrown us a curve ball this year and with Halloween around the corner, things are going to look different. Different does not need to be bad!
I have created a list of ideas on safe ways you can celebrate Halloween! If you make Halloween fun, your kids will still be happy!
Here Are 12 Suggestions:
1. DIY HAUNTED HOUSE
There are fun ways to make a haunted house without giving your children nightmares.

Hide candy around your house. Make your children a list of clues for them to hunt for their treasures.

I used to love watching Halloween TV specials and movies as a child.

There are so many cute Halloween themed crafts that you can do with your kids.

7. CANDY DROP OFF
Here is a cool idea you can plan with your neighbours. Do a pot luck candy drop off. Have your red neighbours plan a time frame with you. Make candy bags for each child involved. Have the children stand on their porches with masks and the adults will drop the bags down 6 feet away.
