Trick or Treat

“Trick or Treat

Give me something good to eat

Give me candy

Give me cake

Give me something good to take!”

Celebrating Halloween in the midst of a pandemic doesn’t have to compromise fun! With social distancing in practice, trick-or-treat this year may look a little different. Nevertheless, there are still many low-contact ways to make our candy hunt safe and exciting for all… especially our little kiddos.

  1. Create a No-Contact Candy Pick-Up Zone
  2. Plan a Candy Scavenger Hunt
  3. Drop a Halloween Surprise

1. Create a No-Contact Candy Pick-Up Zone

It’s time to transform your front yard or driveway into a spooky set. Forget about the usual candy buckets that you bring out when a kid knocks on your door. Instead, get creative with your Halloween decorations this year by setting up a cute candy booth that consists of individual goodie cups. Since you’d want to minimize contact anyways, these individually packed candies will allow your little visitors to grab and go!

2. Plan a Candy Scavenger Hunt

Do your kids love treasure hunts? To keep them moving and entertained, you can consider hiding candies around the house, the backyard, or even the neighborhood! Depending on their age, you can adjust the complexity and difficulty of your personally planned scavenger hunt – and perhaps drop some hints to where they can find the biggest stash.

3. Drop a Halloween Surprise

Drop a Halloween Surprise

Instead of going door-to-door, take the kids around the estate to drop some candies off at your neighbors’ doorstep. While reducing face-to-face interaction, you’d also get to surprise your beloved friends with some sweet Halloween treats, along with a greeting card to send your regards. Who knows? You might also come home to a pile of candy on your doorstep!

Let’s all do our part to maintain a safe social distance and practice good hygiene habits. It’s important to keep the candies individually wrapped, and sanitize any exterior packaging if possible. From all of us at AireSone, we wish you and your loved ones a happy and safe Halloween!
