  1. Create the ultimate Halloween Candy Graveyard this year where kids can trick-or-treat from a safe distance! Simply turn your front yard into a graveyard with treats in front of each stone. You can use cereal boxes to create the gravestones and Easter eggs to hide the treats in! 
  2. Create a cute and colorful Monster Themed Halloween Table that kids will love! Set up a long table that kids may approach in family groups to select a goodie bag of monster candy! 
  3. Hold a neighborhood costume parade! Family groups could walk together and wave at everyone on their porch. I know we love seeing the costumes the kids pick out every year! And what a wonderful way to get to know your neighbors! 

4. Make a DIY pick your own candy hedge. Set up a fake hedge or bush and clip or tie the candy to the bush. 

5. Create a pick your own Halloween treat bag! Create bags of candy and tie them to long yard sticks to set in the front yard. No contact at all for anyone! Bonus points if you make the candy bag resemble a cute ghost or monster!
