Okay my mombies gather your little monsters and let’s make your Halloween party a big hit. I will share with you some fun Halloween games you can have at your party, that’s also super easy to do.
Remember to use your best judgment on which tasks your child can help you with.
Strike Those Ghosts!
What you will need: A ball, six clear or White plastic cups and a black marker
- First create your ghost faces on your cups, remembering to have the opening of the cup face down on the table.
- Once you have completed that you can place them in a corner, stacking them to create a triangle shape.
- Decide where you want the starting line to be.
- Then each person can take a turn to roll or throw the ball to get strike out the ghosts.
Feeding the Monsters
What you will need: Large box, scissors, paint and balls
- With a large box you will create three monster heads, so there are three different eating levels.
- With scissors cut the mouth holes and make sure it is large enough for a ball to be thrown in.
- Then together paint your monsters and add some details. Then once dried, decide where you want your starting line to be and have people take turns throwing a ball into any of the monster’s mouths.
*Fun Tip: You can use glow in the dark paint and put a black light on during the game. You can also add some creative features such as teeth to make the monsters look more realistic.*
What do you feel?
What you will need: Empty tissue boxes, Black paint, foods that would resemble body parts and a blind fold
- First paint your boxes with the black paint and set aside to dry.
- Once that’s done fill your empty tissue boxes with your food ideas. You can label each box with the “item” that you want it to be, for example “eye balls”.
- Once your guests are ready to play have them put on a blind fold and stick one hand in the boxes to feel the objects. Some examples you can use is:
- Noodles with tomato sauce as mushed brains
- Grapes as eye balls
- Jell-O as guts
*If you wish not to use food you can add Halloween items and have them guess what they are, for example, you can put fake spiders in a box.*
Witch Ring Toss
What you will need: Black construction paper, tape, paint, card board and rings
- First cut your Black construction paper into a Triangle shape.
- Then fold the corners together, closing the Triangle shape and creating a cone shape.
- Then with another Black construction paper cut out a circle to complete the witch hat look.
- Together decorate the witch hats with paint.
- Once you have taped the two pieces together and set aside to dry. Once completed tape or glue each of them onto the cardboard leaving some space between each of them.
- Then create your starter line where your guests can each take turns in throwing the rings trying to get it around each witch hat.
Whether you decided to do one of these or all of them, your guests will have a great time at your Halloween party. Remember that sometimes not keeping score can create a more fun, laid back atmosphere and will help you avoid the “competition” conflicts that may arise.
Until next time… Happy Haunting!
