If Halloween is your favourite holiday, you can still celebrate it in a safe way. If you’re looking for some alternative but equally as festive Halloween activities, we are here to help!

5 Spooky “Safe” Halloween Activities

#1 House Decorating |

One of the best ways to celebrate Halloween this year (and stay safe) is to decorate your house with your family. Go big this year; invest in a fog machine or incorporate some speakers that play scary music to help your neighbours feel the Halloween spirit despite the current COVID-19 situation.

#2 Halloween Candy Hunt |

Tis the season for HALLOWEEN CANDY… Hiding candy and having your children find it is a great indoor activity that your entire family will enjoy. It is a great alternative to trick-or-treating Halloween night. This way your children can still get candy without interacting with people outside of your bubble and they can enjoy a fun and safe evening.

#3 Scary Movie Marathon |

Even though we are still dealing with COVID-19 and it isn’t ideal, we have to make the most of the situation. The BEST way to get into a Halloween mood is to watch scary movies!!!

Pick out your favourite scary films and snuggle up for a Halloween movie marathon. OR check out the Inniskillin Movie Night, an outdoor movie experience with spooky scary movies!

#4 Virtual Pumpkin Carving Contest |

Carving pumpkins can easily be a socially distanced activity, so this year, you should schedule a virtual pumpkin carving evening for friends and family. Coordinate a Zoom meeting for everyone to join and carve pumpkins together in a safe way!

#5 Virtual Costume Contest |

Although it may be tempting to get together with a few friends or family members to show off your one of a kind, Halloween costumes, make it COVID-19 friendly and opt for a Zoom call instead! Make it even more fun by hosting a contest by voting for the best costume with the poll function on zoom!

Don’t let COVID-19 ruin your Halloween fun this year, stay safe and enjoy your time by trying out our unique Halloween activities. Also, check out some creative ways to entertain your family
