A Couple Made a DIY Candy Slide for Socially-Distanced Trick or Treating

At this point, it’s probably not shocking to say Halloween will look different in 2020. But you can keep things somewhat normal in a safe way. A couple on YouTube has made a DIY candy slide that’s perfect for socially-distanced trick or treating.

The pandemic has upended a lot of normal activities this year. From enjoying a meal at a restaurant, to end of summer Labor Day pool parties, we’ve had to forego a lot. Fortunately, though, this has forced creative thinkers to come up with some people innovative solutions.

Enter Jaimie and Jay, the Wicked Makers. The couple imparts their decorating and building knowledge to the masses, along with clever DIY ideas, on their YouTube channel. Their latest ingenious idea might just save Halloween.

The pair created a skeleton-themed candy slide that allows you to drop candy into trick or treaters’ buckets, while remaining socially distant.

All you’ll need is some PVC pipe, power tools (although, hand tools work, too), a decorative skeleton, and the time and energy for quite a bit of work. The result is a freestanding candy slide that combines spooky ambiance with safety and is the perfect way to trick or treat in 2020.

So, check out the video and spread some fun this spooky season!
