Planning A Safe Halloween In Your New Home
Halloween in Oklahoma is a time of family fun. Usually, you spend it decorating your home, trick or treating with your children, and mingling with your neighborhood friends. However, if you're new to your neighborhood, it can be hard to know what's expected - especially in the era of COVID-19. With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to start prepping and thinking ahead for the occasion! We've put together some tips for making this Halloween the safest and enjoyable Halloween ever in your new neighborhood in Oklahoma!
COVID-Safe Trick Or Treat
For those that want to keep as safe as possible while the pandemic runs its course, trick or treating might not be in the cards this Halloween - but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. If you don’t feel comfortable trick or treating around your new neighborhood in OKC you can set up a scavenger hunt in your garden for your kids instead, similar to an Easter egg hunt, but make it spooky! Or if you’re dying to explore your new neighborhood in Oklahoma and your kids want to show off their costumes, you can go on an outdoor hunt. Walk around your new neighborhood and give them a piece of candy for every pumpkin they spot, this way you can get to know your neighborhood and the people in it while giving you kids that trick or treat experience and still being COVID-safe!
A Halloween family activity like pumpkin carving is a great way to enjoy the spooky season. Grab a pumpkin and a carving kit and have some fun! If you’re a whizz in the kitchen, you could use the leftovers to make pumpkin soup and hand it out to your new neighbors as a friendly gift. Make sure to be careful when it comes to lighting your pumpkins. It might be best to avoid using candles and instead use a safer alternative like glow sticks or battery pack lights, after all, you don’t want to accidentally burn down your brand new home! Ask your new neighbors to get involved and carve their own pumpkins, you could even host a carving competition and give the neighborhood's best pumpkin a prize!
Socially Distanced Neighborhood Parade
If you live in a private community or a tight-knit neighborhood, you could try a socially distanced neighborhood parade. It’s the perfect opportunity to get out and about your new neighborhood in OKC and start making some friends! If everyone agrees, you could have a grab-and-go stall filled with candy for the kids at the end of the parade while bystanders can clap and cheer from the sidewalk as the parade takes place. It’s up to you if you want to advise masks to be worn, but it could make your parade even safer if you do so. As the parade is outdoors and provided everyone keeps to the socially distancing rules, you should have no problem having a safe and fun Halloween community parade!
