PVC Pipe cut at 6 feet is pretty inexpensive at any home improvement store. Decorate it up in your favorite style and slide the treats down the tube.

Similar to the traditional Easter Egg Hunts, we could replace the eggs with certain colors or glow in the dark eggs.

Sticks of Candy

packages Of skewers from the grocery store or orange wood sticks from a beauty supply store are pretty cheap. However it may be a little time consuming to tape all the candy to the sticks, but this would allow kids to come and pick out sticks of candy without contact.

A zip line candy drop would be an awesome way to social distance and trick or treat at the same time.

Create a punch board using plastic disposable cups, place treats inside and tape tissue paper over the opening of the cup. Kids get to punch through the paper to get to the treat. Paper and cups are all disposable and perfect for social distancing.

Use a tri-folding poster board, glue on some clothes pins and decorate!! Super easy and great for neighborhoods with few kids.
