Halloween Gift Ideas for Children
Children look forward to the month of October, given all the fun around Halloween planning and eating all the pumpkin pies. However, as we continue to live with COVID-19, trick or treating this year cannot be the same as every other year. The CDC and WHO have recommended that going door to door can be dangerous and spending a lot of time outdoors can increase the risk of contracting the virus. Consequently, Halloween becomes an in-house celebration but that does not mean that one cannot have any fun! In this article, we will cover some gift ideas for children to give either before or during Halloween to keep their spooky spirits alive.

This could be an ideal gift to let your kids know that Halloween is not canceled due to the pandemic. Pinterest has a ton of quick videos for making DIY easy costumes and decorations where you can get inspiration from.
Treat your kids with a variety of Halloween candies that they could otherwise get had they been able to go door to door trick or treating.
