Have a fun and safe Halloween!👻
Like almost everything in our lives, due to the Coronavirus, our normal traditions and ways of doing things have changed quite a bit.
We are all doing our best to roll with it and if you’re like me and trying to soak up every bit of advice on how to still celebrate and join in on fun events like Trick or Treating while staying healthy, then you’ll surely appreciate this readers tip.
Check out Hip2Save reader, Drew’s, awesome idea on how to enjoy a safe and candy-filled Halloween!
This year, Halloween is going to be different due to COVID-19, and that kept me thinking about how I can hand out treats with no contact and kids can grab goodies safely.
First, I made individual goodie bags, so kids can grab an individual bag without digging their hands into a bucket full of candies. I needed a big flat tray so all the goodie bags are easily accessible. I simply wrapped a cardboard tray that I got while shopping at Costco. The purple tissues have been repurposed from Tarte cosmetics (My eyeshadows came wrapped in these tissues when I took advantage of a deal posted on Hip2Save a few months ago). My kiddo was more than excited to decorate the wrapped cardboard with stickers. The treat bags and all non-candy goodies in them are from my 90% off Target haul last year.
Best of all, it cost me nothing to make the tray and I will simply dump it in the recycle bin after Halloween without having to sanitize it. I will leave the goodies on my porch!
Thank you, Drew, for sharing this idea with us! This is a fantastic way to still participate in Trick or Treating and I must say, I am very impressed with the repurposing of your Tarte Cosmetics tissue and hanging on to your treat bags from last year’s Target sale! This treat box looks so festive and fancy and I also love that your kiddo was able to join in on the fun too! Awesome!
