Celebrate Halloween Safely

It's Down To Us Social Media (Halloween) Web

Halloween is one of the most exciting times of year for young children as they’re usually taken door to door to enjoy trick or treating.  

There’s no need to cancel Halloween; in fact there are many fun things that you can do to enjoy Halloween as a family, but the usual trick or treat door knocking should be avoided because of the difficulties in maintaining social distancing and the risks of sharing food.

So what can you do to enjoy Halloween as a family?

  • Carve or decorate pumpkins as a family to decorate your house
  • Enjoy Halloween treasure hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors 
  • Hold a Halloween movie night with people you live with 
  • Go virtual and host an online Halloween costume party or contest with friends
  • Organise a treasure hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home.

Its down to us to limit contact with others to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

You can also download a "No Thanks" poster for your window from Leicestershire Police if you'd rather not take part in the spooky festivities.
