Like everything else in 2020, Halloween will be different. I started preparing my kids over a month ago for the fact that they most likely would not be trick or treating this year. Surprisingly, they were not as disappointed as I expected. Possibly because I immediately suggested an alternative for socially distanced Halloween fun.

Simple Treat Bags perfect for Socially Distanced Halloween fun!

Sort of like “boo-ing” your neighbors, our plan is to take the fun to their doorsteps.


We’ve started pre-filling brown paper lunch bags with small packaged snacks and treats for each family.

Prepackaged treats with paper bags and pumpkin labels.

The bags are stapled shut and include a label noting who the gift is from and when we filled the bag. Knowing some of our neighbors are still quarantining pretty strictly for health reasons, I wanted everyone to feel comfortable that the goodies had not been touched in some time. Thus the date.

Since Halloween is on a Saturday this year, our plan is to dress up in costume after lunch. Then walk from door to door leaving the bags on doorsteps and porches (similar to what we did in Easter with crafts).

My kids are very excited about this idea and safely sharing some socially distanced Halloween fun. Yes, it will be a different year, but that doesn’t mean the joy is gone. We just have to be a little more creative.
