This year, I asked my 3-year-old what she wanted to be for Halloween. Across the room, my husband gave me a “look.” All parents know the one. It’s the “maybe you shouldn’t be talking about this right now” look. But honestly, based on all of the heavy topics we could talk about, Halloween seemed like the best bet.
Halloween has always been my favorite holiday. It’s simple and creative. You knock on a door, get some candy, and call it a night. Very few memories will be greater than Halloween in the late ’80s and early ’90s, when my sister and I would dump our plastic pumpkins on the living room floor, sorting the contents by tastiness. And, of course, making sure none of the candy had razor blades stuck inside. That was a big fear back in the day. These days, other types of fears are taking over.
I told my husband that Halloween isn’t canceled. Nothing will stop my daughter from dressing up in an elaborate costume. No virus can keep the fun-sized candy bars out of our house. It may look a little different, and we may not get trick-or-treaters, but the holiday remains.
Here are a few fun activities you can do if you’re still trying to keep the spooky spirit alive.
