It’s that time of year again! The leaves are falling, the air is getting crisp, and Halloween is just around the corner. For many kids, this is the most exciting time of year. But if you live in a condo, you might be wondering how to make the most of trick-or-treating. Never fear! There are plenty of ways to ensure that your little ones have a spook-tacular time.
1. A Safe and Spooky Way to Trick-or-Treat
The safest way to enjoy trick-or-treating is by traveling together as a group. Going door to door with other children in the complex or community can also make the holiday more exciting for kids. If you’re worried about knocking on strangers’ doors, consider setting up a “trunk-or-treat” event in your complex’s parking garage. This is where residents decorate their car trunks and hand out candy from a safe social distance. You can even have a contest for best decorated trunk!
2. Get Your Condo Complex in the Halloween Spirit
Decorating your condo unit is always a great way to get into the holiday spirit. But this year, take it one step further and decorate your whole complex! Organize a decorating committee (virtual or otherwise) to come up with some spooktacular ideas, then put out a call for volunteers to help make it happen. Getting everyone involved will help spread some much needed Halloween cheer throughout the complex.
3. Hold a virtual costume party or scavenger hunt
If you’re not comfortable going out trick-or-treating this year, why not hold a virtual costume party instead? You can do this easily over Zoom or another video chat platform. Just make sure to have some fun digital backgrounds prepared to set the scene! You could also hold a virtual scavenger hunt using an online platform like Geocaching.com. Hide candy around your complex (outside only!) and give clues via email or social media. This is a great way to get kids moving while they search for their sweet treats.
A great way to enjoy trick-or-treating is by traveling together as a group. Going door to door with other children in the complex or community can also make the holiday more exciting for kids. If you’re not sure who in your building would be interested in joining forces, consider sending out a mass email or posting a signup sheet in the lobby. You can also talk to your strata council about organizing a building-wide event.
There are plenty of ways to ensure that your little ones have a spook-tacular time this Halloween, even if you live in a condo. From going door to door as a group to hosting your own Halloween party, there are plenty of ways to get into the festive spirit. So don’t let living in an apartment building put a damper on your trick-or-treating plans – bring the community together and create some new traditions this Halloween season.
