Halloween at Home
A Message from your Happy Haunts at FAM
From all of us here at the FAM Foundation, we are wishing you and your family a happy holiday season. While no one pictured these circumstances for their 2020 Halloween, it is important to make the most of the time we are able to spend together as a family. For those of you that are opting out of a traditional Halloween this year, and for those who are able to carry on as normal, we wanted to provide easy, last-minute activities that you can do with the kids at home. Every craft and activity in this blog-post can be done with items you probably already have around the house. Stay safe and spooky this Halloween!
The perfect activity for your little one(s) at home. Using items you already have at home (paper towels, string, marker, and candy/prize). This activity is a twist on the classic Easter egg hunt, and takes just minutes to make!
1.Take a paper towel and put a piece of candy, or a prize, in the center.
2.Bunch the paper towel together to resemble a traditional sheet-ghost, with the piece of candy/prize as the head.
3.Cinch it together at the base of the head with a string,
4.Hide the ghosts around your home, or in your backyard, and let the ghost hunting begin!
If you’re a parent, you know your child has probably received lots of paint sets over the years. Let’s put them to use; this is a fun(and surprisingly less messy) alternative to pumpkin carving. When you paint a pumpkin, it is able to last a lot longer outside, and it allows you to spend time being creative with your friends and family!
Add a twist to a paper snowflake! By using black construction paper, you can create spooky spiderwebs!
Start with a square piece of paper
Fold into triangle
Fold triangle in half 3-4x(making corners touch)
Create your own cut outs to form your custom web!
Trick or Treat Safety
If you are participating in Trick or Treat, consider these safety tips.
When handing out candy, consider making goodie bags to prevent hands from going in the bowl of candy. Wash your hands with soap and water before making.
When going door to door, consider wearing a mask when gathering at the door.
Try to maintain 6 feet of distance between you and other trick-or-treaters
It’s always important to bring hand sanitizer.
Only approach homes that have their porch lights on.
Kids, allow your parents to inspect your candy first.
Consider giving your child a SABRE Personal Safety Alarm, that conveniently clips on to their bag or zipper; available on Amazon(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BD4YVXY/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_8grNFb966DEHS)
