Top Tips For Celebrating Halloween Safely.

Halloween might look a little bit different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate spooky season at home and have just as much fun. Keep reading for our top tips on how to enjoy Halloween safely this year.

Pumpkin in the Window

A little bit like the NHS rainbow campaign, this year communities are asking for people to get involved by decorating a pumpkin and displaying it in their window at home. Instead of trick or treating, families can walk around their neighbourhood and give the little ones a treat for every pumpkin they see.

Spooky Scavenger Hunt

A scavenger hunt with your household is also a great way for the little ones to get out and about safely this Halloween. Simply write up a list of items or decorations they have to spot while walking around the neighbourhood, count them up at the end and see who the winner is.

Treasure Hunt at Home

Don’t fancy venturing out? Celebrate from the comfort of your own home by setting up a terrifying treasure hunt. Decorate your garden or house and hide treats everywhere for the little ones to find. Think sweets in the spiders or chocolate in the cobwebs.

Haunted House

Decorating the house is also an exciting way to enjoy Halloween safely this year. The kids will love carving pumpkins, baking spooky treats or getting creative with paper and pens.

Sweets on Sticks

Staying safe this October means trick or treating may be off the cards, but if you still want to give out treats to the kids this year, we’ve got a perfect tip. Use sticky tape to secure cocktail sticks to sweets and leave them in your front garden, spaced out, so children can pick them up as they pass.
