Ready or not, Halloween is upon us! While Halloween traditions may look different this year due to the COV​ID-19 pandemic, there are still plenty of ways families can have fun while staying safe and taking precautions. Here are four ideas to consider trying this year!

Host a Virtual Costume Party, Scavenger Hunt or Parade

Whether it’s working from home or online learning, going virtual has been big in 2020. If you’re worried about crowds, consider hosting online parties with friends and family to show off costumes and play games. Another fun alternative is a family scavenger hunt for treats in your home or yard. You could also organize an outdoor neighborhood costume parade!  Family units can social-distance and wear masks while still feeling festive or spooky.

Get Creative with Halloween-themed Treats and Crafts

Regardless of how you celebrate this year, it’s important to have fun as a family. Your family can conjure up a spooktacular Halloween at home on a budget that won’t make you scream. There are a wide variety of craft ideas and spooky treats you can do together!

Decorate Pumpkins

One Halloween tradition you won’t have to kick to the curb this year is decorating pumpkins. As always, use caution when carving or you can try your hand at painting pumpkins. If you do carve a pumpkin, consider putting a battery-operated light rather than an open-flame candle inside. Afterwards, roast the pumpkin seeds​ for a tasty healthy snack!

Have a Spooky Movie Night

Getting the family together for a fun movie night is another laid-back option you can try this year. You can pick a family-friendly film and dress up as your favorite characters or go super scary. For tips on finding age-appropriate movies, read more here.
