How to Celebrate Halloween During Covid-19

The tradition of Trick or Treating can be difficult while we are battling the Covid-19 pandemic. To stay safe by social distancing and staying home, you and your family can modify your typical Halloween activities with the following suggestions.

Stay at Home Halloween Activities


We all know that candy is one of the best parts of Halloween. Making your own only adds to the fun. There are plenty of great recipes that you can create at home. This is also a great option for kids with food allergies or health issues because you can tailor make candy that avoids allergens and dietary triggers.


There are tons of fun, DIY projects you can do at home for Halloween! One idea is to have your kids go outside to collect fallen leaves, then iron them into wax paper for a fun, fall display. You can also make fun crafts and other decorations out of various items such as creating “mummies” by wrapping toilet paper on cardboard cutout shapes and adding a pair of googley eyes. You can also google “Halloween craft ideas” and see what other ideas you can have fun with, all from the safety of your home.


Making costumes with your kids is a great bonding project and helps them express their individuality and creativity! Letting your child design and create their own costume is a safe way to let them still enjoy one of the most exciting parts of Halloween without possible exposure to Corona Virus.

Connections with Friends & Family:

Due to the pandemic, If your kids are not able to go trick or treating, another option is to create a fun event at home. Let your kids put on a “play” or “show” in their costumes. They can pretend to be their favorite character, express creativity and you can even live stream the “play” on social media for grandparents, relatives and friends to be a part of the fun too!

Whether you are creating your own costume, cooking some yummy treats or just enjoying the fun of Halloween, you are creating lasting memories.  We here at Mary Tylor Naturals wish you a spooktacular Halloween!
