We all feel more excited about planning for the holidays this year than last year. But even with the vaccines, we still need to follow recommendations and tips to safely celebrate Halloween during COVID.
Although it’s not one of the holidays our family celebrates, it’s a fun and exciting time for others. Both kids and adults dress up in costumes and visit neighbors for sweet treats and other fall activities.
However, COVID-19 and the new Delta variant has made some of these traditions more difficult to enjoy. But as they say, ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way’. Keeping safety in mind, we have some exiting ways for you to celebrate Halloween this year!

1. Make Pumpkin Carving a Family Activity
Pumpkin carving is still one of the Halloween traditions you can still do; even during COVID! Be sure to get your pumpkin soon as product availability is not as plentiful as they were before COVID. And this is true for many different types of products, spanning various markets and industries.
Ok, so when you get your pumpkins, your immediate live-in family can cut out the eyes, nose and mouth. You can even add clothing to it by painting them on so that they’re all dressed up. Paint on a dress and add some glitter to it.
2. Celebrate Halloween During COVID with Unique Costumes

3. Plan a Halloween Movie Marathon
Watching spooky movies is a must-do and COVID can’t deny you that. Of course we’re not suggesting you go out to the theater, but rather your ‘home theater’. Although kids these days can watch scary movies without having bad dreams, choose age appropriate movies. For example, Goose Bumps 2 and Girl vs. Monster, are both family-friendly movies. But in a few days, TV channels will have their Halloween movie lineup, so you’ll have lots to choose from. And they’ll be playing the whole month of October.
4. Enjoy a Spooky Scavenger Hunt
To celebrate Halloween during COVID this year, you can plan an at-home spooky scavenger hunt. It’s a great alternative to going out trick or treating, not to mention it’s safer. And just like you hide Easter eggs, hide candy and other treats around your backyard and other areas. Provide your kids with tote bags or pillowcases and get them going finding the treats!

5. Create a Trunk or Treat Feast
A trunk or treat feast is really fun to create. It’s also be a safer alternative to the usual trick or treat event during COVID. Generally speaking, a trunk or treat is the concept of decorating your truck or car alongside your costume.
Although it’s more popular with rural schools and churches, it can be done in any type of community. In essence, it’ll help you avoid the classic trick or treating. Besides being a communal place to distribute treats, you also avoid visiting each individual house. Thus, you can more easily implement safe protocols for COVID.
