Trick or Treat from 6 Feet
You know that anxiety in the back of your mind trying to figure out what the heck you’re going to do for trick or treaters this Halloween? Scared of offending your neighbor’s kids with a closed door, or not having a safe way to get them candy? Well move aside anxiety, XDA [the experience design masters] has got the solution for you.
The Halloween Candy Free-Throw Game: Score a candy in your basket and have a little distanced fun with your neighborhood trick or treaters.
Instead of ringing doorbells this year, we’re bringing trick or treat to your street, with a game-kit that includes printable sidewalk signs and instructions on how kids can safely grab their candy on October 31st!
How it works:
PRINT the custom game signs and game instructions (IMPORTANT: Make sure to print extras and circulate the game signs and instructions around your neighborhood. Maybe even share the link on the NextDoor app, the more participation the better!)
PLACE the game signs at the designated distances from your door. (Remember to always stay at least 6ft away from your Halloween guests and choose a well-lit spot to intercept all would-be trick or treaters.)
As the Trick or Treaters approach, the welcome sign will stop them in their tracks to introduce the Halloween Free Throw game.
The 3 game signs will direct them to place their candy basket beside one of the 3 signs and follow the prompts below:
- Game Sign #1 (6ft): “The Free Throw” FOR ONE PIECE OF CANDY: Yell “trick or treat” as loud as humanly possible (make sure you’re wearing your mask)!
- Game Sign #2 (8ft): “The Jump Shot”: FOR TWO PIECES OF CANDY: Yell “trick or treat” + act out your Halloween character!
- Game Sign #3 (10ft): “The 3-Pointer”: FOR THREE PIECES OF CANDY: Yell “trick or treat” + guess what candy is in your host’s bucket and/or hand!
Whether your shot is on point or not, you’ll REVEL at the fun and connection this experience will create for you, your kids, and your neighborhood this Halloween.
