Halloween 2020

Make it Fun, Safe, and Toddler Friendly

How can you enjoy Halloween with your toddler in year of masks and social distancing? There are lots of ways to have a safe, fun, and not-too-spooky holiday. Let us help.

This Halloween, you can start by having some fun with the kids while watching our not-so-spooky virtual Playdate Videos. Miss Katie and Miss Jen talk about Pumpkins, Skeletons, and Monsters in the most fun and playful way.

At TEIS Early Intervention, our therapists work with toddlers from 0-3 years-of-age and their families in overcoming developmental delays.

Visit our Playdate page to watch our videos, register for our Play Group on October 27th, and learn more about TEIS Early Intervention services.

Along with our Halloween videos, you’ll find a variety of informational videos on our Video Resources page, and even more is available both for kids and parents on our YouTube Channel.

Halloween Options

ZooBoo is a drive-thru event taking place at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium on October 24th & 25th. Dress the part as you embark on a safari to see tigers and bears. Join the costume parade and stop at the many candy stations set up along the Zoo trail to collect treats and enjoy entertainers.

Trick-or-Treat is still planned for communities throughout the region. Pittsburgh has published a list of safety tips, including:

  • Trick-or-treat only with family members
  • Wear cloth facemasks as well as Halloween masks
  • Carry hand sanitizer
  • Distribute candy by leaving it outside, and not have in-person and face-to-face interactions at the door
  • Follow social distancing on sidewalks, and when approaching homes where others are getting candy
  • Don’t attend indoor costume parties

Trunk-or-Treat is a Halloween variation that lends itself to safety and social distancing. Arrange with family members and friends you know to be COVID free to bring their cars to a central location, like a church parking lot. Decorate the trunks, wear costumes, and bring candy. Keeping social distancing and mask rules in mind, take your toddlers from trunk to trunk collecting treats.

Pumpkin Painting. No ghosts or monsters necessary. Instead of looking for the biggest pumpkin, search for the mini-sized ones your toddler can wrap their hands around. Put some finger paints in a bowl and have your young ones brighten up that scary squash by dipping, rolling, or rocking them through a rainbow of colors.

Toddler Friendly Halloween Movies are an option. At Mommy’s Bundle, they’ve put together a list of 10 Halloween Movies Perfect for Little Kids. These mom approved movie picks are family friendly and not-so-scary. Most are only a few dollars to rent or buy from Amazon.
