Alternative Activities And Ideas For A Covid Halloween That Won't Spook You!

It's scary! It sure is a game-changer this year in every way, Halloween is no different. 

Covid Halloween 2020 Ideas & Activities

So, with that in mind, many of you are wondering how to handle Halloween this year.  Many grapple with whether to take your children out trick or treating or to holiday parties.  We hear that gatherings are a source of the Coronavirus virus spreading, and touching another source. It's obvious that many people do not want their kids putting their hands in bowls of candy and many home-owners don't want to hand candy out. How do you social distance and still have fun & keep the tradition? Make a new tradition! 

What SPOOKTacular things can you do for a Covid Halloween?  

Here are some alternative ideas for a safe and fun Halloween for your family, classmates and friends. Some of them so great, you may want to incorporate them every year! 

In each case you can have the kids help make Halloween themed treats, serve Halloween candies, dress up in Halloween costumes, give prizes, whatever you can dream up.

  • Have a Family Halloween Party at home: Serve a special dinner or dessert Halloween themed. 
  • Have a Halloween Movie Night: Choose a Halloween movie you all will enjoy!
  • Have Halloween Dessert Party: Easy as pie! Ghostly treats, fun to eat!
  • Have a Halloween Candy Scavenger Hunt: Hide candy around the house or yard.
  • Have a Halloween Drawing Contest: Fun for the creative crew.  Display them all month!
  • Have  a Halloween light show & decorating event.  Not just for Christmas anymore! Do a drive by or walk by with neighbors (social distancing of course).
  • Have a Zoom Halloween Party:  This will work for family, friends or school classmates. Show off your costumes, decorations, artwork and treats!
  • Have a Halloween Craft Night: Choose some creative crafts, be a Planetpal and RE-use them to decorate next year!
  • Lots of Halloween Craft and Food Ideas in Planetpals Halloween Journal, too. Don't miss one Boo-tiful thing!

As you can see there are lots of alternatives.  Who knows they may be so much fun taht they can become a tradition for years to come. 

Happy Hal-OHOH-ween!

Happy Healthy Hopeful Earth Day 2020 50th Anniversary!

As we approach today's 50th anniversary, it is with sadness that our Earth is experiencing such trying times with the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic.  As the world stands still, however, the planet and nature are returning to a more natural and stress free state.


Happy Healthy Hopeful Earth Day 2020 50th Anniversary!

Let us all learn from this, how precious our lives are and the planet that we live on is!  Let's try to continue to use less of everything, spew less gasses in the air and dump less on our lands.


Perhaps we can find a happy medium between consumption and need,  and above all, not enter upon greed. 

So, to this we say, Happy Healthy and Hopeful Earth Day!

Pandemic Waste: With Coronavirus The Gloves & Wipes Waste Unimaginable


Covid 19 has our health system as well as all of us working backward. We are tossing materials out like mad for fear of contamination.

Single-Use Unneccesary Disposal - What Can You Do?

That doesn't just include hospitals using gloves and gowns, but individuals tossing single use gloves, masks, and wipes on a daily basis!  

Not only is it a recycle mess it's a social mess! People are afraid of the contaminants and just disposing of them everywhere. In shopping carts on the street, in the parking lots.

Hopefully, stores, businesses, gas stations, etc will place disposable recycle boxes outside their exit doors for gloves and wipes to help us recycle.  Gloves and wipes have to be disposed of differently than toilet paper or tissues. 

Here are a number of topics and solutions I found. Some solutions for small businesses and large and information guides: 

Recycle Disposable Wipes 
Recycle Gloves
Terracycle Disposable Boxes
Kimberly Clark Right Cycle 
Clean Hands Eco Friendly Alternatives

Be green! Think Clean EARTH. Be a Planetpal!
