I will be absolutely heartbroken if Halloween is canceled.
All of our children have had such a weird year and deserve some resemblance of normalcy.
I really feel like there are ways to make Halloween still happen, even for those that are nervous about the virus.
The people from Wicked Makers on YouTube designed an amazing Halloween candy slide that you can build!
The idea of the candy slide keeps the 6 feet social distance, but allows the kids to still collect candy from you!
All they have to do is hold their candy bag or bucket at the end of the slide and the candy will fall right in! They don’t have to touch anything or even get close to people.
The DIY Halloween Candy slide is made with PVC pipe and fittings, spray paint, mummy wrapping, and a fake skeleton!
They were going with a mummy theme, but I am sure you could come up with other designs as well.
Maybe you could make it a neighborhood competition for the best candy slide!
It seems super simple to build! You don’t even need power tools, although that would make it faster!
You can cut PVC with a hacksaw and they do demonstrate that in the video.
You can watch the video below to see how it’s made!
