5 Ways to Safely Celebrate Halloween in 2020
Halloween is right around the corner but it's also 2020.. and we're also in the middle of a global pandemic - how is this going to work?! Lucky for you, LivBar has done all of the hard work and has come up with ways you can safely celebrate Halloween in 2020. We believe you can make the best out of times like this with the result of creating lasting memories for the whole family!
1. Family Pumpkin Carving Contest via Zoom
One thing we love about fall and Halloween is pumpkin carving. It's a fun activity no matter your age! So why not have a pumpkin carving contest via zoom? Simply organize a day you and your family members can spend carving pumpkins. Afterwards, set up a zoom call and have everyone present their carved pumpkins with a fun backstory and all. At the end, all of the family members will vote on who has the best carved pumpkin/story. If you want to take it up a notch, have an incentive like a gift card or a variety pack of LivBars to create more of a competition!
2. Decorate Halloween Themed Face Masks
Who would have ever thought this would be a fun family activity? 2020 is full of surprises! This is a great way to occupy kids and is just as fun as carving pumpkins. It can also be a great incentive for wearing masks as it can be difficult for the younger ones to understand why they need to wear one. So why not make it fun?! We suggest looking for safe-to-use non toxic fabric paint as well as sustainably made face masks.
3. Make Your Own Halloween Treats
There's nothing kids love more than sweet treats. We suggest saving the candy splurges for Halloween night, however that does not mean you can't make some Halloween treats in the meantime! LivBar wanted to hop on this train so we created these Homemade Halloween Candies that are so cute, customizable, and oh so yummy. You can use any toppings you'd like for this activity, and kids can make their own! Pro tip suggestion: help little ones handling the sprinkles - that could be a disaster. Moms & dads, you know what we're talking about.
4. Trick or Treat Scavenger Hunt
Since trick or treating this year will be at an all time low, create a scavenger hunt around your house for the kids instead of going door to door. This is a safe way to ensure your kids still get a memorable Halloween. Hide treats around the house in various spots, and leave clues for the kids to figure out where their beloved candy is. This is an awesome team-building exercise as well - um, parental win?! Don't forget to make sure they are decked out in their Halloween costumes and ready to trick or treat!
5. Halloween Movie Marathon
This covid-friendly Halloween activity is suitable for any age. There's nothing better than the Halloween classics: Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline, and more. If you're making this a family-friendly evening, we recommend excluding movies such as IT from the lineup. Take the movie night up a notch by making a fort, stocking up on popcorn, movie snacks, and of course, apple nachos!
