Family Quiz for Halloween

The Start of Family Quiz Zoom

For people who don’t know me, I am Kitty Smith, was born in China and now live in the UK with 2 of my kids and a Scottish husband. When I’m not working, the most important thing for me is to do fun activities and be with my family members.

The start of the family quiz was from COVID19 lockdown time. I found it difficult not able to go and visit the other half of my husband family. So we decided to do a weekly Zoom meeting instead, just like a lot of people. The idea of having Zoom meeting is quite normal to me, as I use it for work remote meetings, as well as video call with my mum, who lives in China permanently.

The significant idea of having family zoom meeting, is that you show your willing to connect with the family, and extend that caring mind to go across to all the family members. It involves 2 of my kids and hubby, hubby’s mum and her husband, hubby’s sister and her 3 kids. This forms the member of our family quiz league.

We first started the family zoom meeting to virtually meet family members, instead of our usual face-to-face meet up once or every other month. Then we found out the whole family enjoy a good quiz night! Hey, so exciting! So we started to do quiz in terms, so each family get to do it once a month. We count up the scores and give the winner team a big cheer!


This Year’s Halloween

It’s really sad if you think about it, at this time of the year when it’s Halloween, instead of families having fun and kids dressing up, going around the neighbourhood for Trick or Treat’, this year, we get to do NOTHING – because of COVID19!

Where I live in Lancashire, we are the highest the risk tier group, so we are literarily are house-bound even it’s Halloween! So no ‘Trick or Treat’, we are just having a Zoom meeting in front of a computer, this is our Halloween!

I know I sound very depressing, but I did make an effort to create a Halloween PowerPoint quiz.


The Free Quiz Download

I always like using PowerPoint for work, so for a few family quiz we had this year, I actually created our family quiz in PowerPoint format. Then the thought came to me – there must be family readers like myself, who would use my PowerPoitn quiz with your own kids, family or friend!

So here we go, I designed this free download here for you, it’s absolutely free! Go ahead and let me know if you like it!


The Make-up

My daughter is pretty specialised in doing make-up. So getting her to do my make-up this Halloween is just a natural thing. Here’s a Time-lapse video of how she was doing it. In the end, I’m a scary vampire!

Love the Vampire/Witch Tradition

I always enjoy a good vampire or witch film or story – I know you might be the same, but to tell you the truth, my hubby doesn’t like them and he’s even scared of some of the witch film or TV program I watch LOL.
