If 2020 hasn’t been terrifying enough, Halloween is just around the corner. Are you wondering How To Celebrate Halloween in Lockdown? Keep reading, we’ve rounded up a few ideas.

1. Make a spooky snack

How to Celebrate Halloween in Lockdown

Since you might not be able to do traditional Halloween activities like going to a haunted house or trick-or-treating with friends, you can channel more of your energy into creating a stunning spread of spooky snacks.

2. Carve pumpkins.

It’s a classic Halloween activity for a reason. Grab pumpkins for the whole family (grocery stores tend to sell them if you don’t feel like venturing out to a patch). Then you can either free-hand a design or print out one of the many templates floating around the interwebs. Or you can host your own virtual pumpkin carving contest with family and friends

3. Decorate Your House

Choose either a cute or ~spooky~ aesthetic and then fashion your digs appropriately. Grab a scarecrow, decorative gourds, and maybe even some hay to elevate your porch.

4. Have a Halloween/scary movie marathon.

There’s no more classic Halloween activity than watching a classic Halloween movie or a scary one. Make a night of it by preparing some popcorn and candy and setting a spooky scene. Here are a few ideas:
1. Scream (1996)
2. Halloween (1978)
3. Halloweentown (1998)
4. The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
5. Hocus Pocus (1993)

5. Attend a Trunk-or-Treat

How to Celebrate Halloween in Lockdown

Trunk-or-treating is one of the trends bussing this year in terms of socially distant trick-or-treat substitutes. An organized event
usually held in a school or church parking lot, trunk-or-treating entails decorated vehicles, and kids go trick-or-treating from car to car. You can host this in your neighborhood, too, with neighbors setting up trunk displays in the driveway and passing out candy. Note: Consider having designated adults (who commit to applying hand sanitizer) give out the candy rather than encourage lots of little hands to reach inside the bowl.

When the coronavirus pandemic ends, you and your child can return to the trick-or-treating, haunted houses, and other Halloween celebrations you love. But until then, we will give you a few new ways on how to Celebrate Halloween in Lockdown, have fun trying out new traditions – you may find some to bring back next year.
