Socially distant family fun!
It is almost Halloween, a night so many children across the land have been looking forward to all year. The dressing up, the sweets, the ghoulish fun – we all love it.
But 2020 is not any normal year, and so while traditional trick-or-treating might be out, families across Ireland (and the world) are having to think up new ways to celebrate the day in a safe – and socially distant manner.
The good news is though, that despite Halloween being a bit different this year, people are still decorating their doors and front yards and gardens with pumpkins, ghosts, bats and witches – meaning there are tons of Halloween fun to be found – right on your own street or estate.
And so this year, we at Herfamily.ie are suggesting a Halloween Scavenger Hunt!
In other words, the kids still get to dress up and still get to go outside – but instead of calling to doors for tricking-or-treating, you print out our Scavenger Hunt List, and go hunting through your neighbourhood/street/estate for the following:
Once you find the items (note: you might have to bring your own barm brack!), your kids get to tick it off on the list, and voila – you give them a treat in their buckets!
We think a Halloween Scavenger Hunt ticks so many boxes – the kids still get to put on their costumes, still get to go outside – maybe even as it is starting to get dark! They still get their sweets – and they get to see all the cool and spooktacular decorations in their community.
