7 Ways To Enjoy Halloween With Your Family During a Pandemic
Many family members around the world are searching the internet looking for ideas on celebrating Halloween in 2020. Traditionally, hitting a Trunk-or-Treat at the local churches and Trick-or-Treating around the neighborhood has been the thing to do! However, many people are looking for a new way to celebrate while staying at home.
The guidelines in place exist to safeguard our lives, but they should not in any way be a reason why we cannot have maximum fun when celebrating Halloween this year. So, if you are looking for ideas on how to safely celebrate Halloween from home, here are seven things that should make your end of the October party a memorable experience.
1. Host Halloween Virtually From Your House
For this to work you need to get every member of your family on a group Facetime or Zoom. A memorable part of the process will be to teach your grandmother, who lives miles away and has never owned a smartphone, how to use the apps.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to imagination, and we are certain you will plan the first-ever unforgettable virtual Halloween party.
2. Have A Costume Dance Party With Your Family
Nothing can stop you from dancing away the frustration of not being outdoors trick or treating. So, throw a little costume dance party! Be sure to play Halloween songs like Monster Mash! Here are a few more to jam out too:
- Thriller by Michael Jackson
- Running with the Devil by Van Halen
- Werewolves of London by Warren Zevon
- Boris the Spider by The Who
- I Put A Spell On You by Jay Hawkins
3. Challenge Your Family Members To A Video Game Tournament this Halloween
In the past few months, video games have instantly become a favorite pastime for everyone because of the pandemic. People of all ages have broken out the gaming systems and found themselves playing video games as a safe indoor hobby. Find a video game that other members of the family can learn and play together as a family. A little friendly, family competition is a great way to spend your Halloween, especially if you can dress up like Post Malone while doing it!
4. Binge On Halloween Themed Movies And TV Series
Watching a scary movie during Halloween is the most cliché activity out there but it is also a thrilling way to spend time with your family during this holiday. Before the movie starts you could rally the other family members into wearing costumes related to that particular film because that will make the experience even more surreal.
5. Sing Your Lungs Out With A Halloween Karaoke Session
Children enjoy playing pretend and so it would be entertaining if you prepared a mini-concert for them where they only get lyrics on a screen and a beat in the background. Give it a competition vibe as a way to up the stakes for the participants and offer candy as a prize for the winner.
6. Online Trick Or Treating
Here you will be inventing the rules as you go. It would be a lot of Halloween fun if you and your family members used smartphone apps to play tricks on those that don’t treat you. The foremost advantage of this is that there is that the children will be safe behind the screen of their phones.
7. Participate In An Online Charity Drive This Halloween
Begin to look up online if there are any online charity drive events going on this Halloween. A great way to celebrate a holiday is by giving back to others! Try it this Halloween and be grateful for the opportunity to celebrate!
