With a new baby this year, along with COVID-19, our family has been trying to stay indoors more.

Phillip has been working from home, we’ve cut out a lot of our homeschool activities, and we sanitize like crazy. My Crohn’s disease and the treatments for it put me in the high-risk category.

So understandably, the idea of trick-or-treating this Halloween makes us nervous! Going to a stranger’s home, putting your hand in a bowl that dozens of other kids have touched, and then putting what’s in that bowl in your mouths is a disaster waiting to happen.

Because of this, we’ve been trying to come up with some Halloween trick-or-treat alternatives so that it can still be fun. And we still plan to hand out some of our favorite non-candy trick or treat items to kids who come to our house.

In thinking about those non-candy trick or treat items, I remembered how we do the same thing in our Easter eggs.

And then inspiration struck – why not have a Halloween egg hunt?!

Amazingly, there are Halloween-themed eggs on Amazon. Who knew?

They’re also stupidly expensive, and as of right now the shipping date isn’t until after Halloween is over. So I decided to make some myself so we could have a Halloween trick-or-treat alternative this year.

I dragged out our Easter egg bin and picked out all of the orange and purple eggs. Then I used a Sharpie to draw fun faces and designs on them.

I also put glue on some eggs and put glitter on them to be dragon eggs. You could also make spider eggs if you wanted, or even a bunch of other fun names.

I like it! I would suggest putting some coins or small denomination dollar bills in the eggs for a personal finance twist. Then you can teach kid about money too.

I have been converting most of my other holiday traditions into Halloween ones. Mostly because I’m ready for Christmas but my husband won’t let me. I love the egg hunt idea!
