Are you ready to have a “spook”-tacular Halloween? This year may be spooky for more than one reason. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has changed how we will celebrate one of Halloween’s most favored celebrations, trick-or-treating. Continue for our tips on how to stay safe while honoring the holiday and all of its traditions.
One of the most effective ways to embrace the season is to decorate your Class A motorhome’s interior and exterior. You really feel as though it’s Halloween when your environment reflects it, otherwise, it feels similar to an average Saturday. Some simple and inexpensive decorations that look great on the inside or outside of your Thor Motor Coach are string lights, signs and removable window decals. Check out your local pumpkin patch or farmers’ market for pumpkins, gourds or squash to spread throughout your campsite and get crafty.
Pumpkin carving is a fun family activity for all ages. Your little one’s creativity will flourish as you create memories that last a lifetime. As always, be cautious when dealing with knives for carving and be mindful if you decide to light candles inside of your pumpkins. Use your personalized pumpkins as decor in or outside of your Class B motorhome. Another benefit to pumpkin carving is that you can save the seeds and roast them as a snack for later. “Bone” Appetit!
Nothing will lift your spirits more than dressing up for Halloween. You and your little ones will love becoming anything you want for one day out of the year, whether it be the classic ghost, witch or a favorite character from a book or a movie. Choose whichever costume will unleash your inner spirit. If you feel comfortable, you can visit your local Halloween shop, or have a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) costume with clothes that you already have in your Class C Motorhome. Once you’re in your costume, it’s time to honor one of Halloween’s most favored traditions, trick-or-treating.
Your face paint is on and your ensemble is perfected, and if you feel safe, it’s time to either chaperone trick-or-treating or to pass out candy from your Sprinter. After you’ve found a campground or community that’s participating, make sure that you are still following safety precautions. Socially distance from other trick-or-treaters and no matter how you’re taking part, make sure to have CDC-approved hand sanitizer on hand and if you want, wear gloves.
At the end of the night, gather at a campfire outside of your toy hauler for some ghost stories, family bonding, s’mores and, of course, eating all of your collected candy. It is the perfect day to eat, drink and be scary. Plus, you can opt-out of the scary stories and take this as an opportunity to unwind at the end of the day.
