Air Quality Alert: 6 New Ideas for Indoor Resident Events

Look out your window right now.

Smoky city shutterstock_1812099811 If you’re in New England, Northeast and even some parts of the South, it might look like a post-apocalypse dystopia. It’s oddly quiet, and everything is cast in a bleak sepia tone. If you date to crack that window, you might smell burnt toast.

Turns out, this is all being caused by Canadian wildfires. The New York Times is reporting that there are health alerts in many areas of the country warning people of poor air quality.

In other words: Stay inside.

Hopefully this will dissipate soon. If you’re in one of the affected areas and you had an outdoor resident event planned, you should probably cancel it. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still plan some fun indoor events!

After all, we all learned during the COVID lockdown that, if anything, we are adaptable—and this time people can actually be in one place together!

Here are some indoor resident event ideas for when it’s raining, snowing, hailing, or if it looks like the last 10 minutes of a zombie movie outside.

Make your own cupcake/sundae/hot chocolate bar. OK, this isn’t really a new idea, but you can’t mess with a classic, and anything with free food is a classic! The possibilities are practically endless when it comes to food, and there are no bad options. (Wait. No. A “make your own salad” bar would be bad. I refuse to come to that, and you can’t make me!)

Host a headshot session. You can set up a photo studio and hire a photographer (or maybe even one of your residents who is good with the camera), and take headshots that people can use on their LinkedIn profile or for other professional events. This type of event is already gaining popularity at some multifamily communities!
