The Halloweens of our childhood are drastically different than what we have now that we’re all grown-up. And don’t get us wrong, there’s a lot of great qualities to being an adult. We don’t need to canvass the neighborhood in search of candy – at literally any point we can go to the nearest store and drop some cash for all the sweets we could possibly shove in our faces.

That doesn’t mean you can’t still bring some spooky cheer into your virtual meeting. You’ve likely heard of various Zoom team-building ideas that you can use at any point in the year, but here at Kabloom we like to keep up with the times. Because of that, we’ve gathered our own Halloween Zoom team-building ideas, some of which you can do on your own, and others we would love to help lead!


Change Your Background

This is by far the easiest thing you can do to show some spooky spirit. There are many options when it comes to a Halloween virtual background – we actually talk about some potential prompts here. The basic gist is that, whether it’s your favorite film or your greatest fear, your Zoom background has the potential to start a fascinating conversation!


Halloween Costume Contest

Invite your team to put together a costume for your next remote meeting, and turn an otherwise normal session into a bona fide costume contest. You can give them some notice ahead of time, or you can challenge them to make a costume from things around the house – the sillier the better. And once you’re all together, you can snap a memorable screenshot or even host an impromptu costume contest!


Build a Scary Story

This next choice is one of the easier virtual icebreaker games. It has its roots in improv and long car trips, and it’s to incorporate at the beginning of your virtual team meeting. All you do is take turns telling a scary story a sentence at a time, with the challenge coming from getting from the beginning to the end as a team.


Host a Movie Night

Your workforce works hard, so in honor of the holiday you may want to engage with your remote team by hosting a Halloween-themed film screening. Many platforms like Netflix and Amazon offer a “watch party” feature where you can gather to stream a movie all at once. It’s a great excuse to unwind a little bit, and you can use it as an opportunity to learn more about the scary movies that really stuck with your team members.


Make a Challenge

Does your virtual team like to get a little competitive? If you have some hot-headed enthusiasts with an even sharper intellect, you can use Halloween as an opportunity to test their knowledge on any scope. What kinds of candies can they recognize? What scary movie quotes can they place? The sky is the limit, but if you’re short on time to think Kabloom offers a Halloween Trivia Night that’s sure to please!


Be Creative!

If you work remotely with the more artistic type, you might want to take advantage of that innate ability through some kind of group activity. You can arrange to carve pumpkins together, or you can collaborate on any number of Halloween crafts that will also function as great decorations. If you’d like a chance to flex your imagination without any prep work, you may be interested in our Monster Mash, where you’ll not only learn about famous monsters from around the world, but get the chance to design one yourself! 

Holidays feel a little different through screens and webcams, we won’t lie. But you can still use Halloween as a chance to separate from the normal routine and have a little fun. Your team will appreciate it, and we think you’ll find it refreshing yourself. And when you work with Kabloom, we can handle all the nitty-gritty details so all you have to do is relax.
