10 Face Painting Ideas To Try This October

Now that October is finally here, the smell of crisp leaves and pumpkin spice lattes fills the air. One cannot enter a corner store without encountering pumpkins, bags of candy corn, a black cat and witch trinkets.
Halloween is just weeks away, what better way to engage the whole office than by celebrating everyone’s favourite costume and candy-filled holiday? Halloween Office Party!!

Hosting a Halloween office party for your fellow employees and their families can be an exciting way to show your appreciation, keep morale high and promote work-life balance.


Halloween Party Payoffs

  • It’s all-inclusive. Anyone can participate, but there’s no pressure to participate.
  • It’s a nice break from the day. Employees work really hard, so being able to take an hour break for a costume contest and lunch brought in or if it’s at the end of the day, drinks are an appreciated break from the daily grind. 
  • It’s fun. People really try to out-do each other for creativity. Some go with traditional outfits like pirates, cowboys, sports figures, while others try to come up with something relevant to the company or the latest trends.
  • Since most companies have such a diverse group of people, Halloween is a holiday that everyone can celebrate together, making it an important one for employee engagement and morale.

Read on for some tips for a dead easy Halloween office party celebration that can help ensure the party is a real treat. Here are four tips for ensuring everything runs smoothly and safely this Halloween season.


1. Include the Entire Family

Halloween is a favourite pastime for kids, so it makes sense to commemorate this spooky holiday by including employees’ children in the festivities! It’s a good idea to hold your Halloween office party over a weekend so family members can join in on the fun. When sending out invites, make it clear that all are invited to attend.

2. Add a Costume Day to the Calendar

Depending on your industry and office atmosphere, you can set aside a Halloween costume day to give employees something to look forward to. Better yet, consider creating a costume contest and encouraging your colleagues to vote on the spookiest, funniest and most creative ones.

To drum up excitement, offer prizes like gift certificates, work-from-home days, or paid time off. Just remember, when it comes to dressing up at work, sensitivity, culture and industry matter.

3. Offer Fun Halloween Games

Whether the Halloween games you offer are for employees only or the entire family, choose festive activities that create lasting memories.
Halloween-themed games include creepy Halloween feels boxes, pin the smile on the pumpkin, a “how many candies” guessing game, pumpkin hunts, Halloween bingo, scavenger hunts.
Including entire families especially kids in office Halloween festivities is an excellent way for employees to have fun, maintain work-life balance and bond with colleagues.
An enjoyable, pleasant working environment improves job satisfaction and decreases turnover. So make this year’s Halloween celebration the best one yet!
