Due to the unfortunate fact that we are still stuck in quarantine when Halloween is just around the corner, here are some things you can do while you’re stuck at home this Saturday evening:
1. Pumpkin painting
If you’re feeling creative and want to do some sort of activity this Saturday instead of pumpkin carving, try pumpkin painting! All you need is a pumpkin and some paint in order to have some fun. The best part of this is that it doesn’t matter if your pumpkin is the best looking or not, but if you were able to do something that you felt was enjoyable and festive!
2. Have a Halloween movie marathon
If you have absolutely nothing to do on Halloween, binge watch all your favorite movies. Take a break from all the school and the homework that you might’ve been bombarded with all week and take the night to yourself to watch Halloween movies or shows!
Even if you wouldn’t consider yourself the best baker, go to the store and buy some ingredients so that you can make some sort of “spooky” looking treat. The best part of this is that you can enjoy your snack while you watch your favorite Halloween movies or shows! If baking really isn’t your forte at all, just get some candy instead and call it a day!
4. Go to a haunted house
If you are able to spend your Saturday with a few of your friends, what’s better than visiting a haunted house on Halloween? Make sure to take precautions by wearing a mask and social distancing while going out to ensure the safety of yourself and the people around you!
I asked a few students from Boonton High School what they did for Halloween this year under the circumstances that we’re in and they said:
Interviewee #1: “I spent the night with my friends and we watched movies and baked pumpkin cupcakes.”
Interviewee #2: “I baked Halloween treats and gave them to my friends while wearing a mask.”
Interviewee #3: “I didn’t do anything special. I watched Netflix like always.”
Interviewee #4: “I decided to take my siblings trick-or-treating while we social distanced and wore masks.”
