6 Ways To Up Your Quarantine Halloween Game, October 2020

October 27, 2020by Taylor Dodson0

Halloween is a favorite holiday for many – and this year, it seems like it will be quite different than usual. But “different” doesn’t have to be so bad – in fact, this could be the perfect opportunity to find a new Halloween tradition you adore. Below are some of our favorite ideas for how to make the most of a Quarantine Halloween.

Put on a playlist, and get crafty!

There are dozens of songs both old and new that are fitting for a Halloween playlist. Queue up your favorites, whether they’re classics or contemporary, and get yourself in a spooky state of mind! Then, put your creativity to the test with pumpkin carving, DIY decor, or a coloring contest. Or, take the time to bake some themed treats, decorated to your heart’s content.

Leave surprises at the door - literally.

There’s a new kind of “ghosting” in town – and it doesn’t involve leaving someone on read. “Ghosting” or “booing” involves creating a little bucket of surprise snacks and stealthily delivering it to a neighbor, friend, or relative. Think “ding-dong-ditch,” but with a twist. This is simply a silly way to leave a little happiness with someone else this Halloween – while keeping your distance, of course.

Set up a contactless Trick-or-Treat display.

Whether it’s a simple setup on your porch or a more extravagant DIY display in your lawn, there are plenty of ways to leave candy out for trick-or-treaters this year without putting yourself at risk of viral exposure! Wave hello from your window or leaving a note outside can add an additional personal touch and sense of interaction while simultaneously keeping all parties safe.

Have a spooky scavenger hunt at home.

If you happened to stock up on candy or have a hefty supply of treats at the ready, consider hiding them throughout your home and yard! If you’re up to the task, you could even write up some clues leading your hunters along a specific route – or let everyone loose and see who can find the most pieces!

Explore local Halloween lights, displays, and experiences.

Some towns have “haunted” drives or decor displays in different areas, such as at nearby pumpkin patches or farms. Even if that’s not the case in your city, chances are you have neighbors who have gone all out with holiday lights and inflatables. Getting out and about and taking in the sights and sounds can really help get you into the Halloween spirit. Plus, it’s always nice to get some fresh air – especially nowadays.

Bonus points for wearing a Halloween-themed face mask when you go out!

Settle down with your favorite Halloween movie.

From Frankenstein and Scream to more age-appropriate flicks like Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown, there are hundreds of films that make for the perfect close to Halloween night. Don’t forget to put on some cozy PJs, curl up with a fuzzy blanket, and grab any leftover candy before pressing play!
