Knowing in these difficult times we cant really do anything....
We cant see our grandparents, go for sleepovers, go to school, attend graduations or go for vacations :(
🎃 WE ALL WONDER HOW HALLOWEEN THIS YEAR WILL LOOK LIKE??🎃
Going door to door, Putting your hand in the same bowl as many others is very dangerous!!
But we cant let our kids or small siblings down who have been waiting the whole year for this special holiday to trick or treat...
WHAT DO WE DO THEN??
Don’t worry, you don’t have to give up the holidays just yet.
Farry Fashion and team came up with various ideas and tips for all of us to enjoy this year’s Halloween while maintaining our Social Distance and Safety :)
We can still have fun without having big expectations, After all Halloween is about being silly, dressing up spooky, laughing, and most importantly CANDY!! 🍭 🍬
1. You Can Always Decorate Your House.
Kids get excited when they see Halloween Display outside your house. This will attract these cute tiny souls towards your house.
Decorate a board at your door and say " NO MASK, NO TREAT" . If you feel safer inside your house, put candy bags (not loose candy) and a tiny hand sanitizer on a table. As you watch the kids from your window, you can always guide them :)
I have posted a DIY Halloween Exterior Décor on my Pinterest !
2. Don't forget to design your costumes!
Just because there aren’t Halloween parties this year doesn’t mean you can’t dress up!
You can always have customized your costume with your masks or get costumes that already comes with a mask ( also gloves is another good idea since its anyway winter). This way there will be less chances of transmitting any germs around.
A good thing about having a mask attached to the costume will be that the children will not be able to eat their candy's. Atleast they can bring it home and you can sanitize the rapper before they open it carelessly :)
3. A Socially Distance Trick or Treat
The idea of CANDY HUNT is Amazing!!
Just like we do on Easter, Set up a candy hunt in your yard or home. With this strategy, the children will be busy hunting for candy's and will stay away from each other. In that way they will enjoy, maintain their distance and enjoy candy!!
4. Home Décor
Either on Halloween or a month prior. You can start some cute DIY Halloween crafts. I am putting a link down below for you all to get a nice simple idea.😁 This can work specially if you want to stay indoor on Halloween, the children can enjoy and create some memories.

8. Halloween Lights Out
Guysss, If you are not feeling well even a little bit then do not leave your house or call others at your place, your safety and others safety is very vital.
If you want to give out some treats, you can always deliver them to your neighbors or as mentioned earlier leave leave the treat bags outside.
The best way not to expect any visitors at your house is to switch off all your lights, that way they will understand and not bother by ringing your door bell.
You can always have your privacy and family fun :)
