Halloween can a lot of fun, but it is also a day full of plastic decorations and many visitors to your front door. Here are Halloween tips on how to make your décor more eco-friendly as well as how to provide socially distant trick-or-treating options for your home.

Socially Distant Trick or Treating Ideas

Create a candy graveyard. Drop individual candy bags throughout your yard making it also fun with a scavenger hunt

Grab and go. Keep the kids on the sidewalk and place a table of goodies for kids to take.

Create a candy chute. Just add any kind of chute at least 6 foot long and send your candy flying to kids at the other end. You can purchase PVC pipe to make your candy chute, but also think of other materials you may have already around the house such connecting multiple wrapping paper innertubes or even gutters or down spouts -- just make sure that they are cleaned thoroughly!
