We love fall! From pumpkin patch visits, to pumpkin carving, Halloween crafts, neighborhood block parties, trick-or-treating, and chocolate chip pumpkin bread … you name it! We do it, and we can still do many of those things as a family.
Many families are looking for alternatives to trick-or-treating this year because of coronavirus. Here are three ideas to keep the fun times and treats rolling this year no matter your quarantine preferences.
Halloween Candy Scavenger Hunt
No worrying about going door-to-door with this easy candy-hunting adventure. Hide clues around the house, each one paired with a piece of candy. Kids will burn some energy and use their brains trying to figure out the clues and find the next one.
For families that have joined learning pods or have a small group of families you are interacting with, this is a great way to celebrate together. Each family can bring a game or craft. You could also host a pumpkin-decorating contest.
Here are links to a lot of easy games you can make and modify:
Halloween Movie Marathon
If you prefer to stay indoors, count down to Halloween with a movie marathon! Pick up a special treat from a local bakery or make your own to enjoy as a family!
However you choose to celebrate fall, I hope it’s full of treats!
