Socially-Distanced Halloween Ideas
A socially-distanced version of trick-or-treat where families meet in a large outdoor area and have kids trick-or-treat from car trunk to car trunk. A fun and safe way to give out candy is to use a grabber – you can even find some that are skeleton or witch hands!
Organize a Halloween party via Zoom where kids can virtually share their Halloween costumes and eat candy.
REMOTE TRICK OR TREATING
Have a “self-serve” candy bowl sitting on your driveway away from the house. This is a great way to keep the traditional Halloween feel without having any contact. For additional safety, consider having individually wrapped treat bags for everyone to grab.
