Halloween is not cancelled! No matter where you live, even if it’s not safe to go out trick or treating, Halloween can still happen for the kids (and let’s face it, we find it fun too!). These Social Distancing Halloween Ideas will give you inspiration for adapting your Halloween celebration for the rules and circumstances where you live.
Social Distancing Halloween Ideas
We have over 100 great costume ideas to share with you here! Join together with family and friends and do a fun virtual costume parade via Zoom or some other live video service.
Take a walk through your neighborhood or do this in your own backyard (you could even hide pictures of some of the items if you don’t have all of them on hand). Final thing to find? A bucket of candy!
This could be like an Easter egg hunt but for Halloween candy instead!
You can do a full Halloween themed meal from start to finish to add a little fun to dinnertime. Check out these Halloween dessert recipes too!
Play a fun game of bingo with the whole family – you could even play it online with distant friends and family!
If you’re still planning to hand out candy to trick or treaters this year, this candy chute could make it much easier to do so while remaining distanced. We have also seen ideas where people are taping bags of candy to their door or placing them on stakes in their front yard for a more “help yourself” approach. Others are also setting up hand sanitizer stations in front of their houses to further encourage a safer Halloween night. Check out a few more ideas below.
Set up a spooky graveyard in your front yard with serve yourself candy options.
This sign idea is perfect for a self-serve candy station!
Another fun self-serve option!
Some friends of ours are setting up a pumpkin patch in their backyard. Let the kids each pick out a pumpkin from the patch and then carve or paint it! So much fun!
This is such a fun way to spread some Halloween cheer to your neighbors while still remaining distanced.
Trunk or treat is always a fun idea and this year, it might be a possibility for a safer way of taking the kids trick or treating in your community.
Wouldn’t this be a lot of fun? There are so many great streaming services out there where you can find amazing Halloween movies to watch with your family. Pop some popcorn, grab some candy, and you’re good to go!
Another fun idea that takes masking rules into account and gives them some Halloween flare.
Turn your street into a drive-through haunted house! What a fun idea!
