Tip: Those spiderwebs you haven’t gotten around to cleaning during this very strange year? Leave ’em! They’re festive.
3. Put on your Zoom party pants 🤡
If you’ve been itching for a party, it’s time to plan a virtual get-together that you’ll remember for years. Have everyone dress up, do a costume contest, and play some Halloween-themed Zoom games!
4. Give ‘em pumpkin to talk about 🎃
Good news: Pumpkin carving is one of the few activities that has earned the Centers for Disease Control’s approval. Woohoo!
But if using a knife to carve a giant gourd sounds like a horror story waiting to happen, skip it and try one of our Halloween pumpkin painting ideas instead!
