It’s a Whimsical Wicked Week at the office…where it’s fun to go to work! You’ll enjoy a fun-filled week of dressing up, connecting with your co-workers, playing games, and decorating the office to make it Spooktacular. Just take the advice from our board members – Mr. Mummy, Mr. Dracula, Ms. Witch, and Mr. Frankenstein.
Monday is Mummy Monday!
This mummy got a paper cut and had to fill out a work injury claim form. As you can see from the extensive bandage, it was a pretty serious paper cut!
Clothing: Ask your co-workers wear white.
Coworker Connection: Purchase mum flowers (either real or artificial) and give one to each employee.
Game: Mums the Word
- Choose a certain word and anyone caught saying that word has to give up their mum to the person who caught them saying it.
Décor: Toilet paper wrap. Teepee your boss’ office.
Food/Drinks: Serve vanilla milkshakes.
Tuesday is Tombstone Tuesday!
Dracula has been sucking on too many Hot Tamales, so he called in sick.
Clothing: Ask your co-workers to wear black.
Coworker Connection: In honor of the Grateful Dead, give your coworkers a compliment or let them know how they’ve helped you out in regards to your work.
Game: Graveyard Greats (click on link below)
Décor: Find a spot in the office to create a graveyard. Ask employees to decorate their own cardboard tombstone. Award the person with the most creative tombstone.
Food/Drinks: Serve cheese & crackers (made to look like tombstones).
Wednesday is Witchy Wednesday!
Finding her parking space was a breeze for this Witch, since the company offers employee parking spaces.
Clothing: Ask your co-workers to wear a witch’s hat.
Coworker Connection: Those witchy boots are made for walkin’, so take a walk around the block with your coworkers.
Game: How many movie / television witches can you come up with?
Décor: Brooms aren’t just for riding…they’re for cleaning as well. Dedicate one hour to cleaning out your desk, drawers, or files of all the unnecessary cobwebs.
Food/Drinks: Serve chocolate covered pretzel rods. While the chocolate is still warm, sprinkle crushed Shredded Wheat on it, so it resemble a broom stick.
Thursday is Blood Thirsty Thursday!
Quench your thirst at the office water cooler with dark cranberry juice. It’s very refreshing.
Blood Thirsty Thursday
Clothing: Ask your co-workers to wear red.
Coworker Connection: Take a 10 minute break with your co-workers and meet at the water cooler or break room.
Game: Name that candy bar.
- Cut up some candy bars and ask your blindfolded co-workers to identify the name of the candy bar.
Décor: Decorate your break room or an area within the office using only the color red.
Food/Drinks: Serve colorful drinks such as cranberry juice, tomato juice, Naked® green machine juice, or grape juice.
Friday is Frankenstein Friday!
It’s Friday and these little monsters are munching out on nuts and chocolate bolts.
Clothing: Today is the day to wear your Halloween costume.
Coworker Connection: Mystery Monster revealed (similar to a Secret Santa).
- The week prior to Frankenstein Friday, employees will draw names (of another employee). Throughout the Whimsical Wicked Week, they should secretly leave small gifts on the desk of the coworker’s name they drew. At the end of the week, everyone will reveal whose name they drew.
Game: Play musical chairs or hot potato to Halloween music.
Décor: N/A as the office should be fully decorated.
Food/Drinks: Host a Halloween Potluck.
Here are some easy DIY Halloween treats to give away to friends and co-workers.
