Fun Quarantine Halloween Ideas

Happy family celebrating Halloween. Grandmother, mother and children at home.

This Halloween has the potential to be epic: the holiday falls on a Saturday (which means we get an entire day of candy and costumes and there will even be a full moon (so spooky!). That said, there are a few things that will set Halloween 2020 apart from all other years — most notably, the pandemic and everything that comes with it. But just because we need to remain socially distanced this year doesn’t mean Halloween is canceled — it just means we need to brainstorm creative quarantine Halloween ideas.

Here’s a list of some fun ways to safely celebrate Halloween in 2020. Forget everything you know about how October 31 is traditionally celebrated; these quarantine Halloween ideas will help you have a spooky socially distanced celebration right at home. All you need to do is put on your costume, eat some candy, and get ready for a haunting Halloween house party.

Go ghosting
What’s that, you ask? It’s when you create a treat bag of goodies for a friend or neighbor and leave it on their doorstep with a note inside.
Make some spooky sweets
Treat yourself and try something creative like witch cupcakes, black cat cookies or pumpkin ice cream sandwiches.
Do a Tarot card reading
Light a few candles and see what’s in the cards for your future. Or you can hire a professional to do your Tarot reading on Zoom.
Put on a Halloween playlist
Make Halloween festive with your own spooky playlist, think Thriller, Dead Man’s Party and more!
Watch a scary movie
It wouldn’t be Halloween without watching a scary movie. Cuddle up, make some popcorn, and prepare to be scared!

Attend a trick-or-treat parade
Check out your local newspaper to see if there will be an outdoor Halloween parade or some other socially distanced celebration. You may be able to find parades, trunk or treats and drive-through events going on.

Host a virtual party
At this point in quarantine, we’re all pros at hosting virtual get-togethers. Put on a costume, get your Halloween playlist ready and invite your friends to attend on Zoom.

Your friends at Apollo Insurance Services hope you have a Happy Quarantine Halloween!
