Socially Distant Halloween Activities For Kids

With Halloween approaching, there is a lot to look forward to! The anticipation of Halloween is an exciting time for your little ones whose lives have likely been shifted due to social distancing. While Halloween may look a little different this year, we have 4 great socially distanced activities that will make October 31st memorable for your kids!

Costume Contest

Keeping my kids connected to their friends has been so important during this time of social distancing. Zoom playdates have been a mood lifter in the house! So, for Halloween this year, a Zoom costume contest can be a great activity for your kids and something fun to look forward to! Let them know weeks in advance so that your child can have ample time to plan out his or her costume.

Pumpkin Carving In The Park

Pumpkin carving is a great socially distanced activity for your children! They can sit on a blanket or towel spaced over 6 ft from their friends, yet still have a fun interactive activity. This can be done over zoom too if that makes you feel more comfortable in your Glenwood kitchen or terrace! For younger kids instead of using a pointed utensil, try a paint kit or sticker set for the pumpkins!

Trick Or Treat In Your Apartment

Go On A Halloween Scavenger Hunt

If your neighborhood loves to decorate for Halloween, it will be fun to set up a Halloween scavenger hunt for your kids! First, do a loop around the block and find the buildings or townhouses that have the best spooky decor! Next, make a list of items for your kids to find and check off their list as you loop around a couple of blocks! For each item they find, when you’re home, you can give them a piece of candy or a treat!
