Virtual Spooktacular Halloween Fun for Kids

by on 20/10/2021 2667

Spooky season is here and just because we still have to remain socially distant does not mean kids have to forgo Halloween. Below are a few simple virtual Halloween games and activities to try for some not-so-scary fun. 

1. No-carve pumpkin decorating party

Ditch the carving kits. Instead, let kids paint and decorate their pumpkins with easy designs such as twine to make spider webs, craft foam and googly eyes to create silly faces, or permanent markers to draw a variety of patterns. Perfect for all ages. Then drive-by each other’s houses to view the finished jack-o’-lanterns from a distance.

2. Zoom Halloween costume contest

Host a dress up and show off costume contest online. Create a few categories, such as “Scariest Costume”, “Most Original Costume”, “Funniest Costume”, and “Best Group Costume”, so that more people will have a chance to win. And prizes can be delivered right to their doorsteps thereafter, like fast food meals, baked treats, cash vouchers or gift cards.   

3. Spooky campfire story time

Dim the lights, hot chocolate in one hand and S’Mores in the other, play a continuous loop of creepy sounds in the background, and say “Alexa, tell us a spooky story!” Well, if you don’t have Echo speakers, there are plenty of great Halloween books to read together. Some of our favourites include The Itsy-Bitsy Pumpkin by Sonali Fry, Spooky Pookie by Sandra Boynton, The Littlest Witch by Brandi Dougherty, and Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich by Adam Rex.     

4. Virtual Halloween games and crafts  

There are many other easy virtual games that bring as much fun as trick-or-treating in person. Keep the little monsters entertained with exciting activities like: Bingo (using virtual Halloween-themed cards to play); Halloween charades to get everybody thinking on their feet; musical statues with songs about pumpkins, skeletons and friendly ghosts; or get crafty together making paper handprint bats, kneading air-dry clay Halloween ornaments or weaving string spider web paper plates (send the list of materials and prep them beforehand).
