Halloween Activities

It's Fall! (2)

 

Halloween is quickly approaching! Are you ready? Whether you are a parent of little ones, or just want to have a good time, how should you celebrate? This year is a little different due to Covid-19, but we have compiled a list of some ideas to help you keep the spirit of the Great Pumpkin alive while social distancing.

  1. The first and most obvious activity you can still do is trick or treating. Be sure to check that your local area is allowed to participate. It’s on for Kent County!
    • The CDC recommends that you avoid participating in the traditional trick or treating where treats are handed to kids at the door. While you can still hand out candy, here are some ways to help limit exposure for both yourself and the kids:
      • Keep it simple and leave a bowl of candy out on your front porch or down by your driveway for the kids to grab themselves.slide
      • Take the bowl of candy a step further and prepare individual bags for each trick or treater. You can even consider having a small hand sanitizer station set up for them (they may not use it, but it’s the thought that counts, right?).
      • Construct a candy chute like this one pictured! Check out this easy tutorial to make one yourself. The cool thing is that it’s easily customizable to fit your needs and style.
      • Set up a fun scene in your yard with candy all over for the kids to pick themselves. It helps you social distance and gives the kids a fun experience!
    • Check out this cool website that’s been put together for this year. It gives you an idea of who in your neighborhood will take part in trick or treating, and how they will be participating.
    • If you’re looking for a safe trick or treating event, stop by our complex on Friday, October 30th anytime from 9:00am-5:00pm as we hand out candy with C&M Custom Homes and Diamond State Pole Builders (7344 S Dupont Hwy, Felton, DE 19943).
  2. Complete a Halloween-themed scavenger hunt. Walk around the neighborhood with a list and see how many you can check off. You can easily do this while trick or treating, or if you want a take an evening walk with your family. To make things even easier for you, check out this list we made for you!
  3. Stay indoors and have yourself a Halloween movie marathon. Here is a list of some classic Halloween films to watch while you eat your way through popcorn and hot cider. Plus, let us face it: You cannot ever go wrong with Hocus Pocus!
  4. With coronavirus still affecting our communities, pump up the Halloween flare by decorating your home! We are not just talking about some pumpkins on your front porch – deck the halls with spooky décor. Nothing is wrong with having a little too many ghosts or spider webs here and there. Here are some ideas to give you some inspiration.
  5. Carve pumpkins! Make a day out of it – head over to your local pumpkin patch, eat some apple cider doughnuts, drink some cider. Get creative with your pumpkin carvings. Below are some ideas on what you can create!
