Make a collaborative playlist in Spotify or Apple Music, join a group Zoom call, have one teammate 'Share their Screen > Share their Computer Audio' and get down with the get down!

Affirmation tag day
Andrew Stinger
👍
0
Slack a compliment about one of your teammates to a totally different teammate. Then that person slacks the complimented teammate a compliment for a different teammate, and so on and so on.
Example
Aaron Slacks Courtney a compliment about Bert
Courtney Slacks Bert a compliment about Danielle
Bert Slacks Danielle a compliment about Eric . . . etc.

As the saying goes, "If you want a gossip culture, say negative things behind someone's back. If you want a supportive culture, say positive things behind someone's back."

Everyone doesn't have a costume laying around, so make one! Maybe it's a hat out of recycled cardboard, or a scarf out of aluminum foil, or an entire costume. Go nuts!
