Halloween costume contest rules for kids

If you are going to trick or treat with your children this year, the two links below might help guide your decisions.

Halloween 2020 provides a map of the virus in your area and this is a link to the CDC social distancing guidelines.

While Halloween will be different this year, children can still enjoy costumes and candy–even if at home. You can do a Halloween parade at home, with parents joining in with their own costumes; you can have a Candy Hunt (like an Easter Egg Hunt); and you can turn the lights down low and tell “scary” stories to get in the Halloween spirit (see, as just one example of many, Halloween Stories).

Our costume contest is one way for children not only to be creative with making their own costumes, or adding to store-bought costumes, or just wearing their favorite costume, but also safely sharing what they decide to wear with other children by seeing what other costumes have been posted!

We look forward to seeing all the creative and fun pictures of Kids in Costumes and wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween!

About the Author: Yvonne Wonder

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, a national hotel and event babysitting service, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. I personally needed babysitting when I moved to San Diego 14 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary babysitting; in reality, there are no state standards or licensing requirements for temporary babysitting. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created strict screening requirements for the sitters we refer. There is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children, especially when traveling away from home. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do. Through the years of working with children, I have been inspired to write three books, and this blog for parents’ and children’s wellbeing. I believe the best way to teach a child is leading by example, with love, honesty, integrity, compassion, perseverance, and personal responsibility. Learning these values and teaching children that all women and men are equal will encourage them to dream big to be anything they want to be! An entrepreneur for over 35 years, I previously spent years running a construction and design company with two offices in California and built million-dollar estates and remodeled existing ones. For three and half years, I was one of the primary designers on HGTV’s Curb Appeal. I have also been published in books, magazines and newspapers, and have been a featured designer in multiple showcase houses.
