Halloween may look a little different this year, but the OK Play app is giving families a way to enjoy spooky festivities virtually

The OK Play app uses interactive activities, play prompts, and conversation starters organized into specific routines that parents can use to teach kids important lessons, such as developing social skills, handling their emotions, and learning how to read. Created by the OK Co., an LA-based media and technology startup, the app is now offering a unique way for families to celebrate Halloween safely without sacrificing any fun.

With just a few snaps of the camera, kids can turn their selfies into animations that will appear on top of costumed bodies going door to door in a virtual neighborhood, ending with an adorable snapshot to commemorate the virtual adventure (candy not included). Kids can also create their own silly costumes using spinning randomizers with outrageous outcomes guaranteed to produce a smile and an extremely complicated costume idea for next year. 

The Halloween activities launch on the app today, which is available to download for free on the App Store or Google Play. Families can visit okplay.co for free daily activities or subscribe for $9.99 for full access to haunting virtual activities and more.
