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.

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.

Make this classic activity extra special by preparing candy and popcorn and setting up a spooky scene. Click here for a list of great Halloween-themed movies for all ages.
