How to safely celebrate Halloween for your kids during Covid


It’s the time of the year to prepare our celebration for Halloween and probably it is the most looking forward day of the year for the kids besides Christmas. This year everything is going to be very different because of Covid-19, just like our everyday life now. Since the kids are still very excited about Halloween, LabelBubble has come up with some ideas to celebrate Halloween 2020 with your kids safely during Covid.

Candies Hunt

With cases over 600 in Ontario, 1,000 in Quebec, it’s best to stay home whenever you can to prevent the spread and for our hard working front-line workers. We do not recommend any trick or treat at the mall or in the neighbourhood door by door this year. So, where can they get their candies this year?

Similar to our ideas for Easter egg hunt in April while we were all still in the pandemic, we can hide some candies inside the house and let the kids find them. The wonderful part of this is - they can keep all the candies they found!

A Spectacular Halloween Light Show

You may have seen it on Facebook or parents talking about it in groups. If you live in the GTA area, it is a fun activity for the kids to enjoy the Halloween spirit with over 700,000 LED lights of animated Halloween theme lights. LabelBubble is recommending this place because it is a drive-thru experience, so that you and your kids are safely kept in the car while enjoying the “Halloween Nights of Lights”. Remember to tune into the radio to enjoy the spooky Halloween tunes during the drive-thru.

We have sourced two deals for you to enjoy discounts for this event, and please be hurry as discount offering may end soon:

The Costume!

How can we forget about the costume? Besides wearing this year’s costume to do the candies hunt, we can create a Zoom Halloween costume contest. And, the winner gets a bag of candies! I guess it’ll be easier for each parent to prepare their own bag of candies, so every kid wins! We’ll take turns for the kids to introduce what they are this year and do some Halloween music background and all the monsters, princesses, superheroes, Paw Patrol (that’s my son’s favorite this year) etc to have a Halloween dance together.

Customize your labels with style

Halloween Crafting

Even though we aren’t able to go out and do a trick and treat, we can still spend some time and decorate our home for Halloween. Yes, another Halloween spirit is the Pumpkin crafting with the kids. I have to be honest with you that I have been lazy in the last two years and only been decorating our pumpkins by drawing on them and buying the faces from Dollar Tree and sticking the eyes, nose, and mouth onto the pumpkins. But, whatever works for you as long as it’s fun!

There have been discussions around our neighborhood on Facebook groups that if parents are giving out candies or putting out at the doorways for the kids to trick or treat with an honest system. However, with the raises of case numbers, it is best to stay home and enjoy the Halloween fun with the ideas we mentioned above. Keep safe, healthy and prevent the spread!
