Halloween 2020 Things To Do (Free Scavenger Hunt Printable)

Estimated reading time: 11 minutes

Halloween 2020 doesn’t have to be boring, so I’ve devised different ideas for the family, including an awesome Scavenger Hunt printable.

Halloween was a big deal for us when our son was born, so we would bring him around to meet the neighbors at age 2.

This was when I started to get into this spooky day; although I’m not a fan of giving out treats, Mrs. CBB does that.

It’s Halloween Day, and we’ve been busy preparing our home for the little goblins over the past three days. 

Halloween 2020 will differ greatly from any other Halloween due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Our son is a massive fan of Halloween, as are we, and we both decided that we’d keep the tradition alive.

Creating A Halloween 2020 Bucket List

Mrs. CBB and I got to work coming up with ideas for making Halloween 2020 memorable for our son. 

We created a list of Halloween 2020 activities we could do, including going out trick or treating.

I want to point out that we respect all our reader’s decisions on how they plan to tackle trick or treating. 

Everyone has different thoughts and concerns about what is happening and understands that not everyone will see eye to eye.

The extent of our trick-or-treat excursion will only be on our street, which is a crescent with about 35 homes.

Since we chat with our neighbors, most will be handing out candy this year, but just slightly different. 

As parents, we discussed COVID-19 and felt our son would be protected if he wore his mask gloves, and we brought hand sanitizer.

When we return from our journey around the street, we will keep the Halloween treat bag in the garage for 24 hours before bringing it in. 

I’m not sure how that will help, but I read something about it somewhere that the cold will kill off any bacteria.

How true is that? Ask a doctor. 

Yesterday, we spent a couple of hours decorating our property, and it was nice to have neighbors walk by and smile.

A few even stopped to say how spooky our yard looked and asked our son what he wanted for Halloween candy.

Clip the baggies of Halloween Candy to our sanitized clothing rack, which we will keep on the porch. 

Turn on the outside lights and fire the pumpkins and other battery-operated spooky Halloween decorations.

Put on our Halloween 2020 costumes, which will be Spider-Man this year, and we are going as an old couple, haha!

Trick or treat with our masks, gloves, and costumes, which we love.

Bring along our filled-out Halloween 2020 Scavenger Hunt with a prize if he finds all the items. (download free on CBB)

Return From Trick-or-Treating

Come back and eat some chocolate bars we bought so our son can enjoy a Halloween chocolate bar. (his favorite is only chocolate since he hates candy.)

Roast the pumpkin seeds in the oven with one baking pumpkin yet to get cooked and then freeze for baked goods. 

Make coffee for Mrs. CBB and me and chocolate macadamia nut milk (buy it at Costco, so good) for our son.

Discuss and Enjoy Halloween 2020 Goodies

Chat about what we liked about Halloween 2020 and if we saw any fabulous Halloween costumes or Halloween decorations we wanted.

Ask Alexa to play us a Halloween song in the background to keep the mood spooky. Michael Jackson’s Thriller song will probably be a top hit from the ’80s when Halloween music flourished.

Review the Halloween scavenger hunt to see if we found all the items. (We will, ha)

Serve the Spooky Witches Finger cookies I made yesterday and a keto version of Witches’ fingers for Mrs. CBB.

Search Halloween Movies on Netflix suitable for kids and pop some popcorn with butter. I might make some caramel popcorn for me.

Put our tired little guy to bed; Mrs. CBB and I will watch a Halloween horror movie and then retire to our grave. I mean bed. Haha! 

Next Day: Eat more chocolate, take all the Halloween decorations down, and put them away for another year.

Inside Our Home

As you know, we’ve been busy decorating for Halloween and roasting pumpkins and pumpkin seeds.

I had the inspector come by to see what I’ve completed in the basement and was truthful that I didn’t get it all done.

He will return in a few months to check in to see if it’s up to code since I’m doing the work myself.

Finished Basement Jealousy

I’d love to have a finished basement.

Do you have a finished basement?

Please tell me what it looks like if you use it often and any pros and cons.

I’m writing a post on finishing the basement and why basements are essential to some and not others.

Growing up, I never had a basement, so walking into many when we were house hunting was mind-blowing.

I remember one had an open toilet in the laundry room. Honestly, there was just a toilet.

Were they taking a poop and folding laundry at the same time? Haha.

Gardening and Work

The leaves are mulched with the mower as it’s good for the soil

I’ve worked three days a week and gone into work two, and I’m still unsure if I like it as much.

I miss the interaction in the morning over coffee the most, but no complaints otherwise.

It has been a learning curve for all of us. Embrace change, right? That’s how I keep motivated.

Plus, If I had a toilet in the basement, I could work and take a poop simultaneously. Hahaha!!

Blog Update

My blog mechanic (haha, she will kick my butt for that, maybe) has risen and almost caught up with her business.

She’s doing things here and there and is making plans for 2021 to be my blog mechanic, as her planning and timing were affected this year.

Thankfully, the blog didn’t blow up, or I would have cried.

No, seriously, if you see how much stuff can go wrong and you cry if you don’t know anything about computers.

So, I’m happy she’s up and running in my background again.

Changes To The Blog

Also, if there are any changes *not advertising, as I can’t change that with my publisher or the pop-up subscription) Please let me know.

  • Am I missing something on the blog, perhaps a blog category?
  • Do I have too many categories?
  • Maybe you think I should change the name of a page, and you have ideas.

Let me know; this blog is for you and me, and I appreciate your feedback.

Enjoy your Halloween.
