“We’re staying in, dressing up and doing a halloween candy scavenger hunt!” – Host mom Liz
“We are dressing up and I am pre-arranging trick-or-treating at 5 neighbors’ houses that we know. We are also having a Halloween party in our homeschool pod.” – Host mom Tricia
“We’re planning to have the kids dress up and go trick-or-treating within the house. They will knock on all the doors of the house. A grown-up will be behind the door and open it like they are a stranger and give them some candy. They could do this in multiple rounds and the grown-up can wear a little disguise each time they come to the door and pretend they are a different person.” – Host mom Claire
“Our town has nixed trick-or-treating and, instead, it is holding a house decoration contest. Decorate the house, take a picture and send it to the town and they will pick the winners.” – Host mom Carol
“We are planning a backyard ‘spooktacular’ with 2 other families who we have been socializing and doing yard dance lessons with this fall. Haunted play house, arts & crafts, obstacle course, etc. We are going to project Hotel Transylvania outdoors after dark.” – Host mom Amelia
“We are planning to do a Halloween candy hunt in the backyard (think Easter eggs) and ‘boo baskets’ filled with some Halloween treats and goodies. We are also planning a outdoor family movie night within our court using a projector and screen and each family brings chairs spaces far apart and the kids are dressing up for it.” – Host mom Paulette
