Si su familia celebra Halloween, es posible que se pregunte cómo divertirse y mantenerse a salvo este octubre. Debido a la pandemia, muchas actividades de Halloween, como fiestas grandes, desfiles y trucos o dulces en el vecindario, no son seguras y aumentarán la posibilidad de contraer COVID-19.

Aunque algunos niños pueden sentirse decepcionados por estos cambios, hay otras formas de divertirse este año. Con un poco de creatividad y pequeños ajustes en las actividades tradicionales de Halloween, hay muchas cosas que puede hacer para que sus hijos no se pierdan la diversión de esta celebración espeluznante.

Actividades seguras para toda la familia

Organizar celebraciones virtuales
Planifica fiestas y concursos de disfraces virtuales. Invite a amigos y familiares a unirse en línea para lucirse y calificar los disfraces de los demás. Invite a los amigos de su hijo/a a participar en una fiesta de baile o canto espeluznante a través de la cámara web.

Organice un concurso virtual de tallado o pintura de calabazas. Puedes hacer que tus amigos tallen su calabaza en casa y luego envíen fotos de sus creaciones. Publica un álbum de todas las calabazas y vota por la calabaza más creativa.

Crear una búsqueda del tesoro de Quarantine-O-Ween
En lugar de ir de vecino a vecino para pedir dulces, haga que sus hijos hagan trucos o dulces en casa. Puedes tener una “búsqueda de huevos espeluznante” en familia escondiendo golosinas en la casa. Para los niños mayores, puede ocultar pistas para una búsqueda del tesoro espeluznante.

Sea astuto juntos
Ayude a sus hijos a hacer decoraciones de Halloween como siluetas de papel de construcción para colgar en las ventanas y cadenas de papel para envolver el buzón. Llame a los vecinos y pregunte si quieren hacer un concurso de las mejores decoraciones caseras.

Hornee golosinas con el tema de Halloween en familia. Puede congelar las galletas para que parezcan murciélagos o telarañas, y pelar mandarinas y decorar con menta para que parezcan calabazas. Mezcle opciones dulces y saludables.

Pase tiempo con la familia
Planifique una noche de cine de miedo (o no tanto) con su familia. Puede hacer que su hijo/a elija un tema para la noche de películas según su disfraz o simplemente mire películas clásicas de Halloween. Para asegurarse de que sus selecciones sean apropiadas para su edad, consulte commonsensemedia.org

Organice una noche de lectura con temática de Halloween. Muchas bibliotecas ofrecen servicio de recogida en la acera durante el COVID-19 para que pueda reservar sus libros favoritos de Halloween o historias espeluznantes. Ayude a su hijo/a a construir un fuerte en la sala de estar y traiga linternas para leer libros juntos.

Estos nuevos cambios en su celebración de Halloween no significan que no habrá mucha diversión este año y puede ser una oportunidad para comenzar nuevas tradiciones que pueden continuar durante los próximos años.

¡Que tengas un feliz y seguro Halloween!

Hazel gets students the right support quickly
During the pandemic, a high school student was having a hard time coping. He was sad about COVID-19 impacting his senior year, and he was worried about the state of the world. The student was also struggling with some personal conflicts, and he felt he didn't have the right support at home.

After discussing his feelings, a Hazel doctor connected him with resources that he described as “life-changing.” He was very grateful and shared that he didn't know where to go for help before Hazel.

Hazel expands Health Services at school
A child came into the health center with a sprained wrist. The school nurse helped her ice the injury, but she was still in pain. A Hazel doctor helped the nurse put the student’s wrist in a splint and gave her over-the-counter medicine to help relieve the pain.

The school nurse expressed how grateful she was that Hazel could help her care for the child. She shared that before Hazel, she could not give medication to students, and the health office did not have splints available. She thanked Hazel for helping her do more for students in need of care.

Hazel is convenient and fast for families
A mother noticed her son was getting low on his asthma medication. She tried to schedule a visit with his doctor to refill his prescription, but all of the available appointments required her to take off from work, and her son would need to miss school. She needed to get her son to the doctor so he wouldn't run out of medicine, so she reached out to Hazel.

Hazel was able to see her son and send the refill to a local pharmacy within one day. The mother was happy that there was no need to interrupt school or work to get her son to a doctor for his medicine. She was also amazed at how easy and fast the entire process was.

Parent Story
Shortly after COVID-19 began, a student began to develop tics. Her parents took her to a neurologist, but they wanted to get her into counseling as well. The student’s mother was having a hard time finding answers to her questions and didn’t know where to start the process, so she turned to Hazel.

The Hazel doctor listened as the mother shared her concerns and frustrations. Hazel reassured her that they would find the right services for her child. After the initial visit, the Hazel doctor partnered with the school counselor and the student’s mother to identify resources and counseling services that are a good fit.

A physical health visit leads to an important discovery
A student came into the nurse’s office because his vision went blurry. The Hazel doctor looked at his eyes, but he did not see any injury. As he asked him questions about his symptoms, he started to sense that he was down about something. After a few minutes, the student shared that he was really sad because his mom was recently diagnosed with cancer. He explained that he feels worried, and it’s hard for him to focus.

Hazel called home, and the student’s mother confirmed her diagnosis. They discussed how to help manage the child’s stress, and Hazel offered to connect the child with counseling resources through the school. The mother was very grateful for the guidance and was eager to get her child help during a stressful time.
