By now, we all know Halloween isn’t looking the same as it did in previous years. We always plan our costumes with our kids, and go out trick-o-treating around the neighborhood. Because of the pandemic, Halloween activities have been limited to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Here are 5 things to do with your kids this Halloween to keep them busy!
This is a fun activity to get your kids in the Halloween spirit! You can use all kinds of food like grapes or even pasta, the object of the game is to be able to guess the body part blindfolded. If your kids are older, and less squeamish, you can even add a little red food coloring.
Make Halloween themed slime with your kids! It’s easy! All you need is
-8-ounce bottle Elmer’s white school glue
-1 1/2 – 2 Tablespoons contact saline solution, more as needed
-1 tablespoon of baking soda, and Halloween themed food coloring.
This is the perfect way to stay safe this Halloween, while being safe. Call up your neighbors, put candy in drawstring bags, and line your cars in a circle for your kids to go car to car, like they’re trick-o-treating at different houses!
