CDC has Halloween 2020 Ideas!

Sam’s husband Dan, carving pumpkins with power tools = low risk(?)

My youngest was born the day before Halloween, so it’s been a favorite holiday of ours for awhile. All her parties were pumpkin and candy themed, and we almost perfected power tool pumpkin carving! As with lots of thing in 2020, Halloween will look different. Most importantly: old fashioned Trick or Treating is considered a Higher Risk activity, but the CDC has some ideas:

Lower risk activities

  • Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household and displaying them
  • Carving or decorating pumpkins outside, at a safe distance, with neighbors or friends
  • Decorating your house, apartment, or living space
  • Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house admiring Halloween decorations at a distance
  • Having a virtual Halloween costume contest
  • Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with
  • Having a scavenger hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house

There are still plenty of ways to have fun with Halloween! May I recommend breaking out the power tools?
