Halloween is here! After the anticipation of a month-long countdown, I had to make sure our safely socially distanced trick-or-treating didn’t disappoint. To wit, there were three ways the kids got candy tonight.
First up, instead of knocking on neighbors’ doors, consider every door in your house as a new spot for candy. Bathrooms and closet doorways count! The kids knocked on each one and a bag of candy was waiting inside.
Bonus points if you can rig up a way to make each door eerily open on its own. I’m going to ponder that for next year…
Second, hide treats in the backyard. So that kids can spot them in the dark, add a glow stick to each one. The glow sticks were arguably more exciting than the candy!
Finally, our neighborhood held a costume parade, which was a great way to let kids see each other’s get-ups but stay six feet apart.
My little trick-or-treaters came home with quite the haul. So it’s safe to say, Halloween did not disappoint.
