SO, it’s no secret that Halloween is my favorite holiday, hands down. I love the movies, the candy and most of all dressing up. This year seems to be a little bit of a downer because of the pandemic, so what are we going to do for the kids? Trick or treating seems too dangerous, so I suppose we have to get a little creative! But just because we need to remain socially distanced this year doesn’t mean Halloween is canceled.
This Halloween has the potential to be EPIC since the holiday falls on a Saturday and we get the whole day to celebrate. There will even be a full moon, (yay!)
Your “Hallo-weekend” can include fun outdoor activities, scary movies, spooky treats, and more. Here are some fun Halloween quarantine ideas for a safe, socially distanced holiday with the entire family.
- Make some spooky snacks together.
Halloween is all about treats and eats. Spend time as a family creating the menu and start preparing witch cupcakes, or black cat cookies, or even pumpkin/ chocolate ice cream sandwiches.
2. Do a Tarot card reading.
Light a few candles and see what’s in the cards for your future. For a unique experience, hire a professional to do a private Tarot consultation on Zoom. Have fun shopping around for fun Tarot card decks and set up the scene with scary music.
3. Make a fright night playlist.
No matter how small your Halloween party is, it won’t be complete without some festive tunes. Blast your favorites and have a dance party or play a game with a dance-off. Scary songs can lift the night to a new level.
4. Watch a scary movie.
Nothing is more iconic of Halloween like watching scary movies together. There are tons of movies out there that can keep you on edge and fill your weekend with fright. Whip up some snacks and snuggle with a blanket together and laugh and scream!
5. Attend an outdoor celebration.
Local parades or harvest celebrations should be posted in your town to attend and remain socially distant. Trunk-or-treats, Harvest parades and parties are out there for us to attend at a safe distance. Remember to wear your masks!
6. Paint the kids faces.
You don’t have to be an artist to have a blast at painting faces. Kids love to have their faces painted. Celebrate just like you’re at the fair and have food and treats available and let them dress up! Make it a party time.
Whatever it is you decide to do this Halloween, make sure you check out the full moon and have fun. Stay safe and love each other to the fullest. Halloween 2020 doesn’t have to be a drag, just get creative and enjoy each other.
