Once you’re done, place your festive works of art on your doorstep for people passing by to admire. Bring out everyone’s competitive side by hosting a virtual pumpkin carving contest for friends and family.
  • Halloween Scavenger Hunt
    • Give your kids a list of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house. This is a great way to check out all of the decorations around your neighborhood as well.
  • Easter-Egg-Style Halloween Candy Hunt
    • Fill old plastic eggs with candy and glowsticks for a nighttime egg hunt. Your kids will have a blast running around in costume, gathering eggs filled with Halloween candy and other trinkets.
  • Virtual Halloween Costume Contest
    • You’re probably no stranger to video calls by now. Show off your scariest and most creative Halloween costumes to friends and family near and far with a virtual Halloween costume contest. Give awards for best homemade costume, most original, best family costume, and best-dressed pet.
