You can submit questions to Dr. Jen on her Instagram @drjashton. Halloween is going to look a little different. Parents will have to do to a pandemic pivot when it comes to Halloween to help kids stay safe and stay within the CDC guidelines. But there's se good news here, there's still plenty of fun to be had. We just have to think creatively. Joining us now with creative and safe ways to celebrate is Julia Dennison. From parents.com. Great to have you back here with us. You have some ideas on how to stay safe outdoors and indoors on Halloween are and let's start outdoors, you suggest going on a treasure hunt instead of going door to door. Sure, so this is a supercute idea. Get everybody dressed up, go outside, make a list of some of your favorite Halloween decoratis. Maybe skeleton climbing the walls or that giant skeleton that you're seeing everywhere, cruise around the neighborhood, for every point you get you get some candy, a specific candy for every item on your list. A window treasure hunt that you can do with your kids. Okay, this next one is really fun I hadn't thought about this, but this is right up my alley. Good ghosting. What is this? Right. It's not the kind of, if anyone's dated, it's not the bad kind. It's the good kind. You ring the doorbell and you leave a special bag of goodies and you run away before they can open the door and see you. But you got the make sure that you put a sign on the bag and you can say something like "You've been booed." You also want to make sure you put your name on it otherwise. All right, for parents who want to keep it even lower risk and keep it indoors in their home, you suggest pulling off trick-or-treating at home, only one door, your front door, tell us how you would make this work. Sure, I think this is a supercute idea. You can actually do trick-or-treating at home. Turn the different rooms in your house, a closet, decorate them with different themes and then have different candy in different rooms of your house and then your kids can go around from room to room in your house and have a trick or treating without leaving the house. That's creative. This next one sounds like a blast, zoom Halloween, please, tell us about this one. Yeah, if you're not already sick of zoom at this point, then -- I feel like a lot of us are -- but no, but this is way more fun than your typical distance learning zoom class. This is just getting dressed up, competitions for best costume, scariest costume, funniest costume, get younds onboard, you can combine it with a dance party, or karaoke, and then prizes, I recommend delivering pizza, send a pizza around to the prize-winning house or some cookies, make it more interactive and not totally remote. Is this like the regular zoom? Only wear half an outfit there Saving money at the same time. Julia, good to have you. Thank you so much. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you for having me. I learned so much about a va. They are so resilient now. It makes sense. They can't baby-sit Sabine anymore, thoh. Up next right here on
