Your guide to a safe and ‘spooktacular’ Halloween
With Halloween fast approaching, Hampshire County Council is offering some ‘top tips’ for how to stay safe and enjoy the spookiest of holidays – while limiting the spread of coronavirus.
- Instead of Trick or Treating this year, why not try some of these alternative Halloween activities at home:
- Costume dress-up: become a ghost, vampire or witch for the night. Perhaps hold a competition with prizes for the scariest and funniest outfit
- Have a spooky indoor picnic: test your culinary skills (eye of newt, anyone?)
- Decorate the house with fake cobwebs, balloons and glow-in-the-dark skeletons
- Carve pumpkins: get creative with Halloween’s most traditional activity
- Spot the pumpkin: take a walk around your neighbourhood and see who has a pumpkin in their window
- Treasure hunt: hide Halloween treats for the members of your household to find
- Enjoy a Halloween movie night: there’s never a shortage of spooky movies on our TVs at this time of the year that are suitable for all ages
