Halloween is around the corner and we’ve got some good and exciting Halloween recipes because we all love this day right? Due to the current pandemic situation, I’m sure many parents will be looking for alternatives to traditional Trick-or-Treating.
While some neighborhood parties will continue with their traditional parties, so many may not happen due to regulations in some states that limit outdoor gatherings to no more than 250 people.
Check out these fun alternative ideas:
- Haunted House: Could be set up at home
- If you don’t have kids at home, like me, perhaps leaving a bowl of candy along with some hand sanitizer at the end of your driveway! Wave at trick-or-treaters from your front door.
- Set up a piñata for your children in your own yard with some of their favorite candies and or toys
- Watch together scary movies and ghost stories.
- Do a candy scavenger hunt at home
Nevertheless, it is a perfect time and excuse to decorate our homes with frightfully fun Halloween decor and treats! If you are like me, I’m sure you want to taste all those delicious desserts, spooky treats of fall.
