We keep hearing this question – did COVID cancel Halloween? 

This question varies based on your location but regardless, this year will look different, especially when it comes to Trick-or-Treating. If you’re changing it up this year and staying home, we want to share a few stay-safe ideas with you!


Bake some Halloween shaped sugar cookies and get messy decorating them with orange, black and purple icing. This is a great opportunity to get creative and enjoy a sweet treat with those you love.


Make Halloween interactive with these fun family-friendly games. 

Ghost Bowling: Cover bowling playset with toilet paper or paint soda bottles white to use as pins for Ghost Bowling.

Pumpkin Ring Toss: Line up your pumpkins and throw glow stick necklaces at the stems 

Pin the bones on the skeleton: Similar to pin the tail on the donkey but with a Halloween twist.

Pumpkin Patch Stomp: Blow up a pack of orange balloons with treats inside. Allow your kids to stomp and pop the balloon to redeem the treat inside.


Grab your candy and Halloween themed snacks to create an extraordinary movie night.

Family Friendly Movie Suggestions:

Hocus Pocus

The Addams Family



Treat Halloween like Easter with a Treat Treasure Hunt. Hide candy throughout your house and wait for your kids to find it. 

With a little creativity and searching for some ideas online, the whole family can have a fund Halloween this year!
