Episode 102 Halloween in 2020


Halloween is likely to look different this year. My local community is not doing trick or treating which makes me really sad because my twins are 13 and this likely would have been their last year trick or treating.

2020 is a year my kids will remember and I am working hard as a mom to create good memories in the midst of disappointment. Our family has many Halloween traditions. Some of them we will keep and some we will skip this year.


We plan to have our traditional chili and chicken noodle soup dinner. (Odd considering episode 101, but it is our reality.) We will also decorate and share pumpkin cookies.


We are considering having an “Easter Egg” hunt with Halloween candy or a scavenger hunt with clues leading from place to place in the house and yard.


A big part of Halloween is connecting with your neighbors. Here are a few ideas to build community.

-Show an outdoor movie

-Do a “Ghost Hunt” where neighbors put paper cutouts of ghosts in their windows so kids can walk by and look for the hiding ghosts.

-Do a pumpkin carving contest on your block. Drop off a flyer and 2 flags at each home on your block. Families can “vote” on their favorite carved pumpkin by putting a flag in the yard of their favorite pumpkin.


Create new memories by trying to make some of your favorite Halloween Candy. I have not tested these recipes, but it could be a fun activity to do with your kids.


Marshmallow Peeps

Almond Joy

Peanut Butter Cups

Pay Day


Heath Bar

My mother suggested doing old fashioned activities like making caramel apples or popcorn balls.


No matter what, the key is to have fun and build memories.
