Halloween Party Game Ideas

Here are a few Halloween party game ideas for you to chew on and plant the (pumpkin) seed to make up your own games...

Pass the Pumpkins
Similar to musical chairs, simply have your young goblins sit in a circle and pass small pumpkins or gourds while scary Halloween music is playing. When the music stops, the child without a pumpkin is out. Keep playing until there's a winner. Reward them with Halloween treats...

Build a Scarecrow
Form two teams and have a variety of thrift clothes, old pillowcases for heads, and magic markers and newspapers. Give the teams a 20-minute time limit to make their scariest (funniest, silliest. etc...) scarecrows. Have the scarecrows judged by a non-participant and have prizes ready. Once they are complete, you can put them outside to help decorate your yard.

Halloween Candy Hunt
Just like an Easter egg hunt: Buy plastic eggs and paint them in Halloween colors. Put candy inside the eggs and hide them. The prize can be the candy inside or some of the eggs can contain notification of winning a small prize or party favor.

Halloween Corners Game (Good for ages 3 - 8)
Stick up large Halloween-themed posters or pictures (ie witch, bat, ghost and black cat) in the four corners of a room. Play some scary Halloween music and when it stops, have each child run to a corner (if you have small numbers you can limit the number of children in each corner). Then, the person running the music - without looking - calls out one corner (the cat corner, the witch corner, etc...) The kids in that corner are out. The last person left is the winner.

Stay tuned for more fun Halloween games coming up...
Until then,

Hi - I would like to contact you about a small party paper plane website that I am trying to launch:)

I think you would really like it since you are a paper plane lover.

The site is www.partypaperplanes.com.

I would really like to see what you think about the planes and also any suggestions you have to get this off the ground and soaring high.

The aviation references are too good to ignore!

Since I am new to website strategies and etiquette, please let me know if contacting you through your blog is ok.

When you look at my site, I have a Halloween design. If you like I can send you some.

Thanks very very much.
