Quarantine Safe Ways to Celebrate Halloween
The corona virus pandemic has most of the world in quarantine right now. With a lot of us stuck at home, it can be difficult to find ways to celebrate events such as Halloween. Below is a list of ideas on how you can still have a happy Halloween during quarantine.
DIY Halloween Decorations
There are tons of fun, DIY projects you can do at home for Halloween! One idea is to have your kids go outside to collect fallen leaves, then iron them into wax paper for a fun, fall display. You can also make fun crafts and other decorations out of various items such as creating “mummies” by wrapping toilet paper on cardboard cutout shapes and adding a pair of googley eyes. You can also google “Halloween craft ideas” and see what other ideas you can have fun with, all from the safety of your home.
We all know that candy is one of the best parts of Halloween! Making your own only adds to the fun. There are plenty of great recipes that you can create at home. This is also a great option for kids with food allergies or health issues because you can tailor make candy that avoids allergens and dietary triggers.
Making costumes with your kids is a great bonding project and helps them express their individuality and creativity! Letting your child design and create their own costume is a safe way to let them still enjoy one of the most exciting parts of Halloween without possible exposure to Corona Virus.
Make a Virtual Family Event
Due to the pandemic, If your kids are not able to go trick or treating, another option is to create a fun event at home. Let your kids put on a “play” or “show” in their costumes. They can pretend to be their favorite character, express creativity and you can even live stream the “play” on social media for grandparents and relatives to be a part of the fun too!
