5 Ways To Trick-Or-Treat Safely

Halloween is almost here! And yes, obviously things are different. However, it doesn't mean trick-or-treating has to end. In my neighborhood many houses plan on passing out candy, including ours. But it's important to stay safe since cases are still rising. 


I have tips on how to do that! 





1. Pass out the candy yourself. 



In the past I would allow kids to grab what they wanted. This time I'll be handing it over. 



2. Have sanitizer nearby. 





I plan on using this many times throughout the night to be on the safe side. 



3. Wear masks. 



I'll have a mask on and so will my kids. I hope others will as well. 


4. If passing out candy makes you nervous, put the candy in bags and leave them out on a table. We won't be doing this since I worry someone might take it all, but you can always monitor from your porch. I know several people in the neighborhood are doing it this way. I just personally don't want to waste a bunch of plastic bags. 


5. Don't forget lights! Meaning, have your kids wear glow sticks on their costume so vehicles can easily spot them. Some wear dark costumes so it can be tough to see when the sun goes down. Gregory is holding a lighted spider that you can add to a costume. 




Halloween can still be enjoyable. And if you aren't comfortable going trick-or-treating, that's perfectly okay. Don't let anyone make you feel foolish. You know your family best. If you want to go trick-or-treating, be sure to use caution. I know we certainly will. 


Are you planning on trick-or-treating?

  5. lots of great tips! Due to our daughter being high risk, we are unfortunately skipping trick or treating. We usually have a Sensory Friendly night and I thought it would be a small enough event to try with her but thanks to our cold and rainy weather, we won't get to attend that either. BTW, daughter loves the mask! So sparkly!
