Trick or treating, dressing up in scary or creative costumes, and decorating the house and yard are always fun Halloween traditions for the whole family. And, fun is something we could all use more of right now! That’s why Oriental Trading is providing innovative solutions for a fun and safe Halloween this year.
“As cities start deciding how they want to approach traditional trick or treating this year, we want parents and kids to know that Halloween 2020 doesn’t have to be cancelled, and that there are lots of ways to celebrate safely. Whether you’re celebrating with just your immediate family or you’re including a small group of friends or neighbors, we’re excited to share ideas with you for low-contact Halloween fun,” said Steve Mendlik, President and CEO of Oriental Trading Company.
Oriental Trading’s low-contact Halloween ideas include:
- A candy graveyard where kids can run through to collect candy in a contactless manner
- A no-contact candy hedge that can be refilled between groups
- A costume parade with tables in the driveway filled with goodies
- No touch candy grabbers or creepy gloves
- Socially distanced trunk or treats
If local trick or treating is cancelled or families don’t feel comfortable, here are some alternatives to still make Halloween extra special:
- Do an Easter egg hunt with Halloween candy complete with glow-in-the dark eggs
- Make “You’ve Been Booed” door drops for your neighbors
- Create a neighborhood drive through haunted house
- Virtual Halloween costume parties with a free downloadable Zoom background
- Frightfully fun family movie nights
- Get crafty with cute Halloween projects and craft kits
All of the company’s ideas can be found on Fun365.com – Oriental Trading’s inspiration destination.
In addition to fun activities for families, Oriental Trading also offers a large selection of affordable Halloween décor, making it easy for families to celebrate inside and outside their homes. From an entire line of one-of-a-kind skeletons, featuring mythical creatures like a dragon, unicorn and a 6-foot mermaid, to Halloween bulk kits that provide everything you need with one-click shopping.
“The National Retail Foundation projects that Halloween spending will be up this year and we think yard décor will make up a big part of that. Families can enjoy driving around looking at Halloween displays, similar to looking at holiday lights, as a contactless and fun activity. We want to make it easy and affordable to be that ‘awesome house on the block’ and our bulk kits are the perfect way to do that. Whether you’re looking to go stylish with a black and orange porch décor set or you tend to go scary like with our Halloween groundbreaker kit, or anything in between, we’ve got you covered,” said Mendlik.
Oriental Trading’s mission is to make life more fun; and the fun doesn’t have to stop in 2020. Whatever way you choose to celebrate this year, you can still ‘Halloween your way’ with safe solutions.
