This Halloween will look different from ones in the past. Yet, mamas can still make the day memorable for their little ones. Read this guide on how to throw a virtual Halloween party this year so that the day is still magical for the kiddos.
Set Up an Online Room
Send out invitations way before the big day so that everyone can get in on time. Make sure to include some spooky rules and regulations in the invite so that parents know what to expect. On the day of, make sure you’re as available as possible in case anyone has trouble. Hopefully, everyone gets in okay, and then the fun can begin.
Costumes Are a Must
Halloween wouldn’t be the same without spooky costumes. Kiddos can still dress up even though the festivities are taking place via the computer. Mamas who are still uncomfortable going to stores can try making their kids’ costumes this year. Be sure to get the kids’ input, though; there’s nothing worse than a meltdown inspired by a lack of love for a costume.
Candy & Treats
What’s Halloween without candy? Consider sending out bags of treats before the soiree so that everyone can munch together during the virtual festivities. Also, consider putting delectable recipes in the treat packages you send so that everyone can enjoy the same sweets when the party starts. Now is the perfect time to think outside the box, too. Try making a unique recipe like saffron cream popsicles with dark chocolate that the kiddos will eat right up.
Decorations & Music
Another way to drive the scary theme home is to decorate the space. Hang spider webs and dim the lights to create a terrifying atmosphere. Another idea is to play Halloween music in the background where kids can dance around. Everyone will have a blast jamming to The Monster Mash and Thriller. Parents should all make sure to have cameras ready to record a video.
Follow this guide on how to throw a virtual Halloween party if you’re unsure of what to do this year.
