Volunteer at a local pumpkin patch – In the south, these are everywhere. Grab a group of members and go volunteer at one in your area. Bonus points if you pick on up for the next activity.
Host a pumpkin carving contest – Simple and pretty cost effective. Just make sure to pick up some of those plastic table cloths to cover everything with or take this activity to the patio.
Desk- or treat for members or member’s children – This is a super fun take on trunk or treat concept. Have members decorate their desks and put out a bowl of candy. This is super fun for adults and kids alike.
Have a costume contest- Honestly one of our favorites. It is so fun to see what people and teams come up with. Pro-Tip: offer killer prizes and you will get an even better turn out.
Have a workspace decorating contest- This goes hand and hand with the desk o treat but is also a fun stand alone event. You can supply the spiderwebs and decor or have members bring it in. It gives an instant halloween-y feel to the space.
Host a no bake pumpkin spice cheesecake / pie making class- Tis the season of pumpkin spice everything. Grab your members and the supplies on one of the lists and get to “no baking”. Pro tip- some recipes are more involved than others. You can short cut the crust step by just buying the premade graham cracker crusts.
Potluck thanksgiving- We’ve all been to a potluck before so the same rules apply. We typically supply the turkey and ham and let the community to sign up to bring the sides!
Progressive dinner- but with private offices or desks- Another food event but this time it leans heavily on the members in team rooms or private offices- this can be done with meeting rooms or differed. Theme each stop/space a step in the meal: Pre drinks, appetizers, First course, second course, desert, coffee/drinks.
