While Halloween may seem different this year, you can still help your children have fun. Here are a few ideas for those who want to take their children trick-or-treating and those who want to brighten kids’ days by still having trick-or-treaters.
- If you wish to keep things safe, stick to only going to houses of individuals you know. Before you head out, check with those individuals to make sure they are home.
- If you’re out trick-or-treating in town, keep a safe distance from other trick-or-treaters and wait for any group ahead of you to leave a house before you approach.
- Keep sanitizer on hand and use it periodically throughout the night.
- While this may cause a few tears, avoid from having your children sample any of their candy until the next day.
- Avoid having children ringing your doorbell by setting up a table outside with individually wrapped treat bags. Relax on your porch to check out all of the fun costumes, but remember to keep your distance.
- Be sure to sanitize your doorbell throughout the evening and maybe even offer a sanitizing station outside your door with a large bottle of sanitizer on it.
- Most of all, make it fun! Make the children that come trick-or-treating at your house feel special and excited about the holiday!
As always, remember to make sure your homeowner’s insurance is up-to-date. You never know when you will need it!
