Make Your Own Costume
Express your creativity by making your own costume from things around the house. Increase the fun by turning it into a Halloween costume competition or pageant with the other people in your house or friends and family on a video conference!
Take a Swing at This
Set up a pumpkin piñata filled with your favorite Halloween treats and celebrate your sweet success with a viewing party of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” with your family.
Baking, crafting and decorating are all activities that lend themselves to parents teaching their children about balance and mindful treating.
Trick-or-Treat At Home
Set up several trick-or-treat locations in your own home: every door counts – bedrooms, bathrooms and even closets! Go all out and theme each location with treats and décor.
The Hunt Is On
Conduct a Halloween candy scavenger hunt, where parents hide treats throughout the house/yard.
Pick Up Your Favorite Treats
Enjoying your favorite treats is an important tradition during the Halloween season. Why not treat yourself by picking up some of your favorites to celebrate the tradition, even if it’s without trick-or-treating?
Virtual Halloween Parties
Set up video chats with friends and family members who can’t celebrate with you this year. Make it a special time for children to show off their costumes and talk about their favorite treats.
Extend your celebration the entire month October with a countdown calendar (similar to an advent calendar). Make each day a surprise – stream a favorite Halloween movie, enjoy a small treat, decorate the door to your apartment or house, deliver treats to a neighbor, eat dinner in your Halloween costumes, etc. The ideas are endless.
