Halloween Treats and How to Celebrate Safely

Socially distant trick-or-treating alternatives

Get a Halloween piñata
Halloween is all about the candy and what better way to deliver the treats than with a bang?! Both kids and adults will love to partake!

Go on a scavenger hunt
A spooky scavenger hunt is the perfect activity for kids, with hidden clues around your house or backyard, and a sweet treat as the prize.

Make “boo” baskets
Your child can create their very own “boo” basket with an assortment of festive Halloween goodies. You can even throw in a few toys for an extra surprise!
