Kids have been in quarantine, denied face-to-face social interactions, and trapped for hours at a time in front of computers learning remotely. But now finally they have a reprieve—Halloween. A holiday that is seemingly designed just for children. Some politicians suggest skipping Halloween this year because of Covid-19.
Parents are under a lot of pressure to “normalize” their children’s lives and allowing kids to reconnect face-to-face with friends is essential. Watching a movie, doing a candy scavenger hunt, or dressing up the dog are enjoyable ways to spend time with your children, but right now my kids want to be outdoors, and they want see their friends. And that means Trick-or-Treating. Chances are your children want to celebrate Halloween similarly and bring home as much candy as they can carry.
