COVID has just messed a lot of things up for everyone. Especially our kids. Milestone birthdays, significant times of the year, weddings, etc. My oldest son turned 13 in June, right in the middle of the pandemic. We did everything we could to make it fun for him, but a lot of things weren’t open and it wasn’t as big as it could have been.
I decided to create a few ideas of things you could do to have some Halloween fun at home.
- The first thing is one that I’m doing. Create a Halloween scavenger hunt at home for the kids. I plan on decorating the house and hiding candy and prizes all over the house. My husband and the kids will have to figure out the riddles and find the prizes. There will be a monetary grand prize. Not only is this fun and creative, but its safe and completely socially distanced. Thanks to my Dad for the idea.
- Pumpkin carving is ALWAYS fun! The pumpkin patch experience is fun, but if you’re like me, saving money is necessary especially during COVID. Well, we were able to find pumpkins at Lidl for about $1.99! You can’t beat that. You can print pumpkin stencils from the internet and pin them on the pumpkin for some family fun. (They also make great hiding places for the first idea.)
- Family Trunk or Treat – This could be a good idea to do with close family and friends. If you have a place to meet up and do this, that would be perfect! Meet up and have a great time!
These are fun ideas and I hope you enjoy them and participate. Tag us in pics!
