Halloween is traditionally a time for costumes and parties. Guests can participate in a variety of Halloween games and win prizes such as pumpkin pies and candy. Activities can be spread throughout the party hours. Children and adults can participate in the games together. Here are five fun Halloween activities for a large group.
Pin the Wart on the Witch
Create a large-sized witch using poster paint and markers. Large rolls of butcher paper can be purchased from craft supply stores. Tape the witch to a door or wall. Pass out gum to all participants. Blindfold each person and spin them around three times. Then have them place their wart on the witch. Mark each person's wart with his name. The game can be played for a grand prize that goes to the guest whose wart is closest to the witch's nose at the end of the night.
The Mummy Wrap
Divide party guests into groups of two to three people. Designate one person to be the mummy. The remaining team members will use toilet paper to wrap the mummy. Set the game to two minutes or designate the first person to wrap a mummy using two rolls of toilet paper as the winner. Have trash bags handy for toilet paper to be easily picked up at the completion of the game.
Create a variety of ghoulish foods in different bowls. Foods can include cold spaghetti that will feel like worms and peeled grapes to resemble eyeballs. Have guests wear blindfolds as they squish the foods between their hands. Other food suggestions can include cauliflower for brains and dried apricots for ears. Write down guests responses as they wiggle their hands and feel the foods. The guest with the most correct answers wins.
Who Am I?
Write different historical figures, celebrities and cartoon character names on index cards. As guests enter the party, a card is pinned to the guest's back--allowing others to read the character, but not the guest wearing the card. Guests will try to guess who their character is by asking questions ending in yes or no to other party goers. There is no limit on how many questions asked. The game allows for guests to mingle and converse with each other.
Hide 50 witches around a backyard or inside of a home. Designate prizes for each witch found. Winners can include guests who find the most witches. Set a time limit for the witch hunt. Witches can be purchased at dollar stores or simply printed on paper. Other options include using ghosts or pumpkins.
