How to Safely Celebrate a Happy Halloween with the Kids

The Holidays are coming up and the pandemic made it a little challenging for us to celebrate. Many parents came up with creative ways to make each day fun and interesting for kids at home. For Halloween, here are some ideas to make that spooky Halloween celebration a memorable one.

Create Spooky Treats At Home

If your kids love creating and tasting delicious dishes then this one is up your alley. Make your regular recipes a bit more spooky with some gooey red syrup (strawberry or grenadine). You can add this to your baked good and drinks.

We tried a quick Butterbeer recipe with strawberry syrup. Kids will definitely love this!

Drive-Thru Trick or Treat

Missing the outside world? BGC is celebrating Halloween with ‘Spook Street’. From October 30-31, you and your family can go through a spooky tunnel and get some Halloween loot!
