This year Halloween is going to be a little different to us all. It is more important than ever to remain safe on 31st October 2020. Take a look at our top 5 alternative ideas to enjoy Halloween 2020 whilst keeping safe!


  1. Mask:

A Halloween mask is not an appropriate substitute for a face covering as it does not offer enough protection and breathability. Do not wear a mask underneath a Halloween mask as this will restrict your ability to breathe comfortably. Instead, incorporate your mask as part of your costume by using face paint on the forehead or making a mask out of a breathable Halloween style material.


  1. Trick or Treating:

Knocking door to door poses threat of spreading covid-19. Instead communities across the UK are discussing putting Halloween drawings in the window much like the NHS rainbows. Once a child spots a decoration on Halloween night the parent or caretaker can place a treat in the child’s goodie bag.


  1. Halloween Party:

Unfortunately, Halloween parties are more than likely to be off limit this year due to social restrictions. Instead, why not have an online Halloween party that you can invite all of your friends and family to. An online spooktacular quiz, movie marathon and best fancy dress competition are all things you can still do safely from your own home.


  1. Pumpkin Picking:

Visiting a pumpkin patch is still a relatively low risk fun Halloween activity for you and the children to enjoy. Remember to wear your mask and sanitise your hands before and after visiting to stay as safe as possible. If your area is in a local lockdown why not order a few pumpkins or root vegetables in with your shopping and hide them around the house as a pumpkin scavenger hunt for the kids (big and small)!


  1. Halloween Donation Box:

Food banks are struggling more than ever during this time. Many have had to close down or relocate so finding them is a struggle. Why not get the whole family involved in decorating a box with Halloween spookiness and fill them with tinned and long-life food to donate to your local food bank. Find your local food bank with the Trussell Trust here!

Everyone’s health and safety is a priority right now so please ensure you stick to your local guidelines if they differ from our advice whilst celebrating Halloween to ensure we all do our bit to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.
