TRICK or treat fans have been told to celebrate the season 'in your bubble.'

Worcestershire County Council says this is the safest way to enjoy a treat and has put together ideas for families to try out.

These include:

• Watch a scary movie together

• Carve pumpkins

• Decorate your home

• Have a Halloween hunt in the back garden (Like Easter but with pumpkins or treats)

• Make Halloween themed food

• Dress up

There will be a full blue hunters moon on October 31.

You could also go out for a spooky walk in your favourite Halloween costume with people in your bubble -with the council encouraging anyone doing so to don a face covering.

Dr Kathryn Cobain, director for Public Health in Worcestershire, said: “2020 has been difficult for all of us and we need to have some fun to cheer ourselves up. With a bit of creative thinking and a few changes we can all have a spooktacular but safe Halloween.

“Please enjoy 31 October in your bubble at home.

"If you do go out for a special Halloween walk, please be a Covid-buster, follow the rule of six and keep a two metre broomstick length away from others to stay safe.”

The council has put together a Worcestershire spooks safely pack with lots of things to do including colouring in and games to play.

It includes some ideas such as Halloween Bingo, where whoever spots a line of spooky creatures or the whole bingo card, gets a treat from a grown up. You could have a neighbourhood decorating contest to make everyone’s walk more enjoyable. Children can also colour in the characters from the fun pack and pop them in a window for everyone to see.
