Given the current crisis, it’s hard to look forward to a favorite holiday, Halloween! I thought you might find some inspiration into how we’ve managed to celebrate, have fun and still be safe!
Think Easter egg hunt with a Halloween Theme. The Kid decorated the house to set the mood. On Halloween, The Family will hunt for tricks and treats, inside the safe confines of home sweet and scary home. Appropriate music will be played, of course. And cake will be enjoyed.
A Visit by the Great Pumpkin!
To stay connected with the neighborhood, participating families are packing little treat bags, filled with wrapped only candies and a few trinkets. Individualized treat bags – one for each child -- are “delivered” to mail boxes, by none other than The Great Pumpkin himself.
Of course, what’s a Halloween Party without scary tales! A few of our favorites this year include:
Skeleton Hiccups, by Margery Cuyler. (Margaret McElderry Books; Reprint Edition. August 2005). A skeleton and his ghost friend try to cure his case of hiccups. Check out this site for book activities for Skeleton Hiccups!
