Halloween Season is fast approaching and it’s just right around the corner. Traditionally, we Filipinos are very fond of our “ber month” seasons because there are a lot of events happening from time to time.

7. The Candy Hole Tunnel

Although the pandemic is still here and we have to accept the fact that this is the new normal, we cannot restrict other kids from enjoying and celebrating the spooky season. This Candy Hole Tunnel is a lot safer and relevant to today’s environment because you do not have to worry about giving treats to kids that will knock on your front door. You’ll need two things to create a Candy Hole Tunnel– a tape and large poster paper or Carolina. Form a hole-like tunnel and tape each side for support. You can add Halloween designs, or stickers to the tunnel so that it will look like a Spooky Candy Tunnel. So, when someone knocks on your door it’s gonna be a lot simple and safer sliding the goodies in the tunnel. To add a little play to the tunnel, you can either slide treats or Halloween spooky stuff like spiders, bats, or eyeballs so that kids wouldn’t know if it’s trick or treat for them.

8. The Spider’s Candy Web

This Spider’s Candy web is just right on time! Kids will just have to pick whichever they like in the spider’s web as they step in your front door. The trick, you can actually have a remote control spider or moving spider display that is placed near the candy web. For the game, you can put a timer or alarm in 30 seconds so that other kids can get candies too. Once the 30-second alarm has started beeping, let your moving spider move across the kids to let them know that the spider has arrived and they are not allowed to get candies anymore. This is a super easy craft with only a few supplies! You’ll need the following items; long branches, a skein of yarn, tape, and a bag of candies. Putting this Spider Candy Web is definitely eye-catching to the kids, so better stock a lot of candy bags and expect that your spider candy web will be out of hand soon.

9. The Candy Garden Gang

Another safer trick or treat for the kids is the Candy Garden Gang. These Treats are so easy to make as you will be needing 3 items– clear tape, candies, and a stick. If you’re worried about a kid getting hurt if they get a little excited about taking the candies, you can use either popsicle sticks or a plastic spoon. Put some scary scarecrows or giant pumpkins in front of the candy garden and put some notes like “Take 2 candies or the guards will take you” or any note that will remind them that someone from the garden is watching them. The Candy Garden Gang is so cute and simple that you can prepare it in less than an hour. It’s interactive and fun. By doing this it can push people to think of a new way to do Halloween Trick or Treats– not just because of COVID, but because it’s different and fun and more exciting for the kids.

10. Pumpkin Pinata

Lastly, we have a Pumpkin Pinata to add a little excitement this spooky season. The fun game is that they have to put 5 candies in a separate pumpkin bowl as an alternative for their “ticket” to play the piñata. Once surrendered, they now have the chance to play the pinata and win a lot more candies. Other kids can play too, just make sure that everyone is paying attention with social distancing and they must wear a mask during the game. If the kid breaks the pinata, he or she will receive the candies in a separate pumpkin bowl and one big bag of candies. The trick? The Pumpkin Pinata doesn’t have candies inside it, instead of Halloween spooky crafts and stuff. This can avoid the crowding of the area and kids wouldn’t have to get candies in the middle. Those who took the risk in putting 5 candies as their ticket will really pay off once they broke the pinata.
