How To Have A Safe Halloween

So many kids (and adults) count down each year to Halloween night. This year, the coronavirus has thrown the world a curveball, making Halloweens of the past just that: a thing of the past. Moving forward, the CDC has recommended some low risk activities to have a fun and safe Halloween:

  1. Carve and decorate pumpkins with members of your household and place on display.
  2. Send your little ones on a scavenger hunt around the house or yard to find Halloween candy or other spooky treats.
  3. Host a virtual costume contest.
  4. Have a spooky movie marathon night with your family.
  5. Go all out with the decorations and be the scariest house on the block.

While traditional trick or treating may not be in the cards this year, there are still a number of fun and safe ideas to make the holiday memorable. We wish a Happy Halloween to all of the goblins and ghouls out there!
