Halloween can be a touchy subject here in The Bahamas, but if you’re sad about missing out on the fun this year, here are some suggestions for how you can still have a Safe, Fun & Memorable Halloween

Host a neighborhood drive-by trick-or-treat or reverse trick-or-treat.

If you have a yard and the weather allows, talk to your neighbors about scheduling a car parade on your block: Kids (with adult supervision) stay in their own yards while neighbors drive past slowly and gently toss treats out car windows, parade-style. Or have family and friends drop off treats for your child at your doorstep – a contactless twist on the trick-or-treating tradition.

Create a Quarantine-O-Ween scavenger hunt.

Instead of your child trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, they can trick-or-treat around the home or yard. Hide treats, create clues, and send your child on a spooky scavenger hunt.

Plan a scary (or not-so-scary) movie night.

Host a full-length feature with a theme that ties to Halloween or your child’s costume, or plan a marathon of Halloween-themed TV episodes.

Have a Halloween-themed reading hour.

Check your library for book suggestions! Many offer curbside pick-up during COVID-19. (And if you need help getting your child excited about reading.

Have your child “art direct” a Halloween family photo shoot.

Make planning part of the event. Invite your child to brainstorm several locations to take photos, and make a list of any props you’ll need to have on hand. Then let them “art direct” the photo session – setting up family members in different funny or scary scenes based on their costumes. For extra fun spend some time creating the costumes with your kids.
