Looking for ways to have a fun and safe Halloween? Keep reading to discover our top 5 social distancing activities for Halloween this year!
1. Have A Spooky Movie Watch Party
Get together with your friends virtually for a Halloween Watch Party! Teleparty (formerly known as Netflix Party) is a browser extension that allows you to watch Netflix, HBO, Hulu, and Disney Plus in sync with friends and family. The app even adds group chat to your favorite streaming sites. Our Halloween must-watch picks are Hocus Pocus and the Haunting of Bly Manor.
2. Virtual Halloween Costume Contest
Just because you’re not going out doesn’t mean you can’t get dressed up! Host a virtual Halloween costume contest with friends through the magic of Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Skype.
3. Leave Candy Out for Trick-or-Treaters
This year, it’s encouraged not to open your door to Trick-or-Treaters. Instead, place a bowl of small goodie bags or single pieces of candy on your front porch while you stay inside. Remember to wash your hands before putting out any candy or decorations that children might touch!
4. Pumpkin carving/painting
Pumpkin carving can be a fun way to show your Halloween spirit. Have a virtual pumpkin carving contest with family and friends. If you have little ones at home, then painting pumpkins is a less messy alternative that will allow them to express their creativity.
5. Halloween Decoration Sightseeing
Go for a drive around your neighborhood and take in all of the Halloween decorations. This activity is perfect if you’re looking to get out of the house and still practice social distancing responsibly!
