What are you doing for your kids for halloween?

What are you mamas doing with your kids for Halloween this year? My city is not recommending trick or treating this year, and this would be the first year my daughter could participate. I’d love some alternative suggestions!


Our community center is doing a drive thru boo. It’s like trunk or treat but drive thru style.

We’re trick or treating :woman_shrugging:


Scavenger hunt around town…

When we were little my mum drove us around to the houses of people we knew to trick or treat. And some who couldn’t afford to give out anything she dropped off the candy there earlier so it was there for us

We were planning on trick or treating but we have the Covid so will play it safe.

We will be having a in the dark candy hunt, watch movies, and have a Halloween themed dinner.

Maybe something along the lines of an Easter egg hunt, but halloween themed? Hide little goody bags full of candy around the house/yard and let the kiddos find them!


Halloween party for the family

We are doing halloween buckets similar to Easter baskets and painting old Easter eggs orange/black then hiding them. Also doing some Halloween/fall themed crafts. We might go to a local trunk or treat but not if a ton of people show up. Some local hiking trails are being decorated with non scary items just for fun so we might go on a hike also

Ask people in your neighborhood if they are passing out candy. If not, set up a little candy path outside for her. We are doing a full meal- meatloaf (monster feet) monster mash (green mashed potatoes) witch fingers (green beans) blood (code red)

We’re dressing up and doing an Easter egg hunt! All through the yard and house. We’re also going to let him knock at our door so he can at least get to say trick or treat! I think it’ll actually be better for him because he’s only 3

Drive her around to see relatives if possible. Grandparents love little visits and love their costumes

My kids are going to dress up for a home party. We’ll play games, do crafts, make treats. They’ll earn tickets from the games. They’ll then use them to buy popcorn, candy & drinks from the “snack bar” & watch a movie. I’m incorporating sight words & math.

Halloween movie night just the 3 of us. Also putting little cauldrons of candy on the neighbors porches of our complex (the ones i know that have kids and i personally know) just in case their kids aren’t going trick or treating.

It’s my sons first Halloween this year. Were staying home, doing Halloween crafts, baking, having a spooky dinner, doing a candy find (picture Easter egg hunt), and doing a costume photo shoot with the family. Our area is recommending against trick-or-treating as well

We bought costumes to stay home each getting a bag of their favorite candy to watch movies and sit at home!

What we normally are.

We are still trick or treating. Our neighborhood is mostly young couples with kids and I will do like I did last year and have a table decorated that has candy, snacks with sensory/ allergy friendly options that my neighbors can grab and go… that’s what most of us do.

We’ve done halloween "egg hunts "when it was crappy weather . Once they got older we upped the difficulty to doing it in the dark or making it a pirate treasure hunt using a map and clues

We are making good bags with candy in them and then putting glow sticks in them hiding the bags around the yard when they find one they have to do a silly dance

Were having a Halloween party with family

My kids are going trick or treating just within the house. My parents and grandmothers will be at each door in the house and my kids will knock on bedroom doors over and over to trick or treat.

For those who are thinking scavenger hunt here’s a few that are less Easter like.

I’m basically doing spooky Easter :slight_smile:

I’m letting my kids carve pumpkins, I’m gonna buy them candy. For our town I believe they are doin trick or treating I just don’t want to take my kids out and then they get the covid-19 so we are staying put. For our neighbor kids I am planning on making candy bags for them and take them to all the kids.

My son decided that he would have fun drawing with glow in dark paint on a white shower curtain. So we will open our garage and have a few of his friends come over and help paint. So that they can have fun and enjoy the evening in a safe environment.

We are buying lots of candy and snack, new pajamas for each kid, and watching “scary” movies all night


We’ll be trick or treating indoors ! We have all doors in our home decorated (bedrooms/bathrooms) even closets and garage, so the kids will be going door to door as if they would house to house. We also have games and prizes setup in the yard to keep them busy and occupied. We’re gonna make the best of it.


We arent going either but my town doesn’t care if we trick or treat… we are buying tons of Halloween candy, watching scary movies making Halloween treats


We’re having a Halloween movie night. I’m going to be stopping at the dollar store and pick up some random Halloween stuff to put in a bucket. I’m also going to make some Halloween treats


Bought candy for my mom and dad and grandma and aunt for the kids to go by and trick or treat at their houses only

We are going camping and boo buckets

I’m currently working on Boo Basket’s for the kiddies just in case. Where we live is on the fence about trick or treating. If we can’t we will do a candy hunt, watch Halloween movies and do Halloween crafts.

Still doing trick or treating I don’t care if they recommend it or not everyone said they are still handing out candy so off to trick or treating we go

Giving birth hopefully


Kaitlin Worley following for ideas!

Alot of towns are offering drive thru trick or treating maybe something worth looking in to.

Halloween movies, make cupcakes, games etc

Pj costumes, movies, popcorn and candy. My husband and I weren’t sure as we have an infant now so better safe than sorry and there’s always next year!

We WILL be trick or treating for real house to house like every other year but with masks on and hand sanitizer
