Also you can change rules. The person wrapping mammy can be blindfolded. It’s harder but you can make a lot of nice pictures!
4. Zombie Daylight, Darkness.
Make 2 lines. Select someone to be the zombie hunter. This person will be stand just on the other side of the finish line. The zombies (other players) start behind the starting line and their goal is to be the first zombie to cross the finish line and then become the next zombie hunter.
The game begins when the Zombie Hunter turns person back on the zombies and shouts, “Darkness” person then turns around and counts to 3. While the Zombie Hunter is counting, the zombies moving with their hands out (like zombies walk) and move towards the finish line. When the Zombie Hunter has finished counting to 3 he shouts, “Daylight!” and turns around quickly.
The zombies must freeze instantly. If the Zombie Hunter catches anyone moving, that zombie must return to the starting line. Play continues until one of the participants crosses the line while the Zombie Hunter’s back is turned. That player then becomes the Zombie Hunter.
5. Halloween Corners Game
Stick up large Halloween themed pictures (witch, spider, ghost and black cat, ) in the four corners of a room. Play some music and when it stops, each child runs to a corner (if you have small numbers you can limit the number of children in each).
The dj without looking then calls out one corner or pulls a piece of paper from a hat and the image on the paper identifies which the corner is out of the game. Continue to play until there is one person left and they win a prize.
6. Halloween Who Am I?
When a guest arrives a name tag or piece of paper is placed on their back and they are told that by the end of the party they must guess what it says. This game can be adapted for any age group 3 to 93, just increase difficulty with age.
This is done by asking other guests ‘yes’ or ‘no’ questions about what the paper says. They are not allowed to read it themselves, nor are they allowed to ask someone else what it says. When they guess correctly, they win a present.
For example, for young children Pumpkin, Witch, Vampire, Ghost, red paper, big black eyes. For teens and adults – any heroes from horror movies, tales.
7. Witch’s Stew Game
You need straws, construction paper, bowl instructions.
Before the party, ask your kids to help you cut 10 Halloween shapes, such as ghosts, bats and pumpkins from construction paper. Each shape should be about the size of a silver dollar. Place the shapes in a pile beside a small bowl.
Using the straw as a vacuum, each contestant tries to pick up a shape and place it in the bowl to create the Witch’s Stew. Time the players to see who can get all ten in the bowl the fastest.
Cut out several sets of shapes and let the players race head to head.
8. Bat Walk Game
You need crepe paper, mirror, cardboard, tape or tacks.
Tape or tack a winding route of crepe paper around the ceiling of your party room.
Find a mirror about 6 inches in diameter and affix it to a larger piece of cardboard (this will block out some of the floor, allowing kids to concentrate on the upside down route).
To find their way through this bat cave, children must look down at the mirror and follow the route reflected from the ceiling. They will find themselves gingerly stepping around light fixtures, open doors and any creepy decorations you have hung from the rafters.
Enjoy and have fun!
