Last Minute Stay-At-Home Halloween: Virtual Party Tips
It may seem like everything has been postponed by COVID-19— 2020 could very well be Halloween. Speaking of Halloween, this year we are celebrating this much-anticipated event in a different way. Door-to-door Trick or Treating and spooky parties may be restricted in some states, but this doesn't mean the spookfest has been canceled! There are many ways to still get in the Halloween spirit. Hello, virtual parties and stay-at-home activities!
Halloween is a perfect excuse to get together with family and friends. Don't let social distancing take away the fun. Thanks to technology we can now host or join parties from anywhere in the world. Which means, it's easier to reach loved ones from long distances, while you're staying at home!
Here are 5 Ways You Can Make Your Virtual Halloween Party Spook-tacular:
Choose where you want to host the virtual party.
Make sure that you're hosting the party on a platform that everyone can access. Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Houseparty, Google Meet, or Facebook Rooms are great options for your Halloween virtual parties. Send out virtual invites to your family and friends.
You can also decide whether you'll choose the theme or create a poll for everyone to vote on the Halloween party theme they like.
Don't cancel Halloween costumes.
Is it even Halloween without the costumes? Part of what makes it exciting is how you dress up into something scary or dramatic. But since Halloween is going virtual this year, you'll probably only have to worry about dressing up from waist up.
There are many Halloween costume inspirations online. Are you going for scary? crazy? or lazy? Whichever it is, make sure you get to showcase your costume on screen.
Recreate trick or treat.
Ask your family and friends to come up with Halloween jokes, riddles, and questions to give trick or treaters. How can you tell if a vampire has a cold? Because of the coffin!
Treats could be gift vouchers or credits for app downloads, etc. Be creative!
Horror movie marathon online
Sad that you can't spend Halloween movie night with your horror-movie-buddies? You can still watch movies together— online. Host a watch party via video chat platforms such as Zoom, Skype, or Netflix Party.
