Mom Comes Up With Clever 'Ghost Hunt' Idea For Safe Halloween Fun

We all know that Halloween isn't going to be the same this year — especially when many trick-or-treat activities are canceled.

It's understandable that some people don't feel comfortable doing the usual trick-or-treat tradition. So, this mom came up with a genius way for her kids to still enjoy Halloween in the safety of their own home.

Ashlee Nicholas decided that Halloween wasn't canceled this year as far as she was concerned.

But she still wanted her kids to be safe while trick-or-treating. Therefore she came up with a fun "ghost hunt" they can do instead.

The premise is quite simple actually.

All you have to do is wrap some candy, or other treats like apples, in white tissue paper and tie them with ribbon. Then, you can draw a face to make them look like a ghost.

After you're done wrapping all those treats you then need to hide them around your house for the kids to find.

It's kinda like a take on an Easter egg hunt. It's still really fun but super safe of course.

The kiddos will get so much joy out of finding the special treats in places they normally wouldn't think of looking for them, ha, ha.

And, best of all, they can still dress up and wear their costumes while hunting for ghosts. Am I right or what?

Ashlee got the idea from a fellow mom who posted about it on Instagram and she pretty much ran with it.

This mom didn't want to hand out candy to kids, so she wrapped apples in the tissue paper instead.

Just how cute is this scene?

This little fairy is ready to get some sweet Halloween goodies. It's so cool that parents are still coming up with great ideas for the kids to be able to partake in Halloween activities safely.

You can also do this outside around your house.

That way the kids will still feel like they're out and about. And in addition to wrapping the candy in tissue paper, you can also add glow sticks to make the treats glow in the dark.

Isn't that such a fantastic idea? I totally dig that.

You can also decorate your house to look like a hunted house. This will make the kids that much more excited to go outside to search for their favorite treats.

So what do you think of this idea?

I know it may not be ideal but it's way better than just giving up on Halloween altogether. Don't you agree with me? I think the little ones will still be able to enjoy that a lot.
