As we begin to dive into the fall season, we want to get ready for the spookiest time of the year: Halloween! This yearly celebration takes place on October 31st and is filled with sweet treats, people dressing up in their favorite costumes, and spooky, yet fun, events.
This day involves huge gatherings of families and/or friends spending the night showcasing their favorite costumes while sharing and munching on their favorite sweets. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 there have been many restrictions on having large gatherings. Luckily, an alternative way to celebrate this wicked holiday is through virtual platforms! Now that we have transitioned into an online environment; planning and hosting events online has never been easier.
Here are a few Virtual Halloween event ideas that you and your friends, family, or team can enjoy while following COVID-19 protocols:
Spice up your office or home by carving or painting your own Pumpkin! Whether it’s with your family, friends or team, you can organize a virtual call and spend the time sharing your creativity on how you would like to decorate your pumpkin. To add some competition into this event, members can vote together on who has the scariest pumpkin design.
Idea: Send Pumpkin Carving Kits or Halloween themed painting supplies to those who want to participate in this virtual event. Mini gift baskets or gift card can also be given out for those who want to make this event into a fun competition.
Spend this spooky holiday with an online magician! You and your family, friends or team can watch a variety of different magic tricks through many online platforms. Awe your audience with Alan Hudson, the Magician, as this event allows teams to book a Virtual Magic show for your team over Zoom.
