Sadly, Halloween is going to be a bit different this year. Not being able to go trick or treating is a big bummer, but there’s still plenty of ways to celebrate this spooky holiday.
One way you can get into the Halloween spirit is through a pumpkin carving contest. Invite a friend or family member to carve with you. This activity is perfect for social distancing, because it works great outside and can easily be done 6 feet apart while wearing a mask. It’s also a great way to get your competitive spirit on! There’s no reason to skip out on creating your own Jack O’ Lantern masterpiece this year.
Another way to celebrate Halloween is to throw a little Easter spin on the classic holiday. Before you had to work for your candy, but mom or dad just dumping some sweets on the couch doesn’t seem all that fun. Well, maybe this year try having a Halloween Easter egg hunt! Bust out those dusty Easter eggs, and hide them in the scariest places you can find. You can even try adding some jump scares near some eggs to really give a fright! It will definitely make the day feel more festive and exciting.
A great way to get your spook on is through baking. Halloween is centered around sweets, so what better way to celebrate Halloween through a gory skeleton cake, or some monster rice krispie treats! There are so many fun Halloween recipes out there, so I encourage you to try to make one. You don’t even have to be good at baking to have fun with it. You can share your scary treats with your family, or drop some off for a friend. Adding a scary and creative spin on a classic dessert can go a long way!
I hope this gives people different ideas on how to be creative this Halloween. Whether it’s watching a scary movie with your family, having a dance party to the Monster Mash, or doing a scavenger hunt with a sibling, Halloween can be just as fun and memorable as any other year! I’m wishing you all a happy Halloween!
