7. Do a Halloween Scavenger Hunt
This is what my family is doing this Halloween! Think an Easter Egg Hunt meet Trick or Treating, and you have my vision for a Halloween scavenger hunt.
For older kids, you could make this a proper scavenger hunt, with a little bingo card of items they need to find.
For my toddler and pre-schooler, we're going more the easter egg hunt route. In a local park, we'll be hiding little pumpkin buckets with candies, Halloween pencils, stickers, etc.
Each child will get a little trick or treat basket, and they'll have to find the buckets hidden behind trees and rocks and benches and fill their little baskets with the treats they discover.
We'll probably end the festivities with a costume fashion show, or some Halloween coloring with free printables I've saved to our Halloween 2020 Pinterest Board.
This will be such an interactive and exciting activity for them that I honestly think it will be more fun than trick or treating.... all the treats, minus creepy neighbors in lawn chairs drinking beer and yelling BOO and my children. Yes, please.
