Like everything else in 2020, trick or treating is different this year.  This gives families a chance to get creative and invent some new fall traditions! It’s also a great opportunity to show a positive spirit and model flexibility because if you’re excited and having fun, your kids will have fun, too. 

Here’s a few suggestions about having fun and staying safe (Healthychildren.org)

  • Use video chat to share costumes or have a virtual costume party 
  • Have a family spooky movie night 
  • Make Halloween themed treats 
  • Have a candy scavenger hunt in a safe place 
  • If you do go out to trick-or-treat, maintain the six feet guidelines and make a Covid safe mask part of your child’s costume. 

Watch the video below for more ideas in celebrating safely with your kids.
