Boo Bash Box

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Halloween is going to look very different for many children in 2020, including here at VDM where we have decided not to host our annual Boo Bash family carnival. The spooky season is one of our favorite times of the year, however, so we invite you to join us in keeping the magic and excitement of the holiday alive with a Boo Bash Box party pack to enjoy at home. But beware: Five days of frightfully fun activities ahead! From Monster Mash to Candy Craze to Frankenstein’s Lab and more, enjoy a full week of thrilling themes with their own devilishly delightful games, electrifying mad science experiments, and kooky crafts for the whole family.
