This Halloween Dart Game is fun for the whole family and very entertaining at parties.
For: Ages 8 – adult
This game is a variation of the familiar busting balloons with darts game that can often be found at carnivals. It gets it’s Halloween appeal by using orange balloons and by the explosion of confetti that is inside the balloons.
You’ll want to set this up in a playroom or den with a floor that can be easily vacuumed- it will get messy. For safety, it is a good idea to stretch a string between two chairs to create a safe zone between the players and the target.
There is some debate as to whether Halloween is more of an adult holiday or a children’s holiday. Personally, I don’t see why it can’t be both! Adults and Children both love to dress up and show off the new personality that a costume encourages. And who doesn’t love a party?
With all the responsibilities and school work that modern children have these days, a Halloween party is a good way to get together with their friends and have a different kind of fun. And because it is a Halloween party, there are fun games to play which keeps everyone participating and having fun.
Here is a selection of both Traditional Halloween Games and more modern ones. (more…)
Here are three ideas you can use for your Halloween costumes.
The first is Titanic Survivor. For a man playing this role buy a dark suit and trousers and a white dress shirt, as cheaply as you can. Now mess it it up a little bit, perhaps cutting the lapels. Make a life preserver with polystyrene foam. You can find circular ones that are used for packing wreaths. It should be big enough to fit over your head for the best effect. Now glue some very light fabric on the outside and let it set overnight. You can spell out words on it saying “RMS Titanic” using some black tape. Now cover your face, hands and neck with white make up and some blue colour around your eyes for a haunted look. Place the life preserver over your head and you are complete.
Knife in the back This is a classic type of effect. Buy a large rubber knife from an online store. Next, cut some thick cardboard to about 8 x 6 inches. Obtain a bandage, a shirt or jacket with a slash in the back for the knife to stick through. Push the knife about 4 inches through the cardboard and stick it to the cardboard with strong tape. Also tape the knife on the other side of the board as well. Now attach the cardboard and knife ensemble to your back by wrapping the bandage around it several times. Finally fit the slit in the shirt or jacket over the knife. The effect is complete.
Post-it Note Cut a 3 foot square piece of cardboard and paint it yellow. Put a stripe of diluted green paint across the top to make it look like glue. Write a big note across the top with a magic marker and tie the cardboard around your neck with some string.

These party games from Better Homes and Gardens are for more ambitious folks.

With plenty of Halloween game ideas to choose from, you should have no difficulty incorporating several into your Halloween festivities. Be sure to mix in some non-competitive games too, so that none of the party goers feel left out of the fun.
For a novice event planner, nothing is more daunting than the question, “Mom, can I have a Halloween party?” There are Halloween decorations, costumes, recipes and activities to plan, which can be a big task. To throw the best party, try to keep the group small (10 is ideal) and organize Halloween fun games. Whether you’re planning for a teenager, a pre-teen or a young child, there are a number of fun and affordable games to keep the entertainment rolling!
Halloween party games for younger kids can range from silly Halloween fun and getting-to-know-you games, to spooky ghost story telling and puzzle solving. An easy first game is “The Name Game,” where index cards with monster or Halloween character names written on them are affixed to the back of each guest.
Then the person asks another guest “yes or no” questions until the right answer is guessed. Some kids love “pumpkin golf,” which is a homemade golf game made out of a cardboard ramp, a carved pumpkin with an extremely large smile and a mini-golf set. “Ghost hunter” scavenger hunts always go over well for grade school children.
First wrap lollipops up like ghosts using white tissue paper and a black magic marker. Then hide them around the house and write clues about where they could be. To make it more competitive, create teams, such as “the witches,” “the goblins” or “the werewolves,” and have each team race back to place their lollipops into a bin as they find them, awarding a special prize to the winning team.
Or you may want to put a letter on each ghost that will form ten different Halloween words and award prizes as the kids guess them. You can also turn on “The Monster Mash” and have kids dance like monsters, freezing when the music is stopped. This will definitely have them cackling at the Halloween fun! Check out “Party Game Central” for more do-it-yourself ideas.
If you’d rather buy a few games than make them, then here are some Halloween party suggestions. Little kids will love the “Halloween Role Play Game,” which can be purchased for .99 at Oriental Trading and plays up to six kids. The game includes a 10″ spinner, 6 each of 8 assorted character cards, 6 “surprise” cards and instructions.
They’ll spin, pick a card and do an action, such as making bump sounds with their feet, talking like Frankenstein, doing the Monster Mash and acting like they’ve been zapped! Oriental Trading also has “Halloween Bend Game,” which is an awesome seasonal version of Twister that kindergartners to teenagers will love!
“Color Your Own Halloween Bingo” is another great game you can purchase for almost any age. “Inflatable Halloween Limbo” or the “Inflatable Spider Ring Toss Game” are sure to add Halloween fun to your child’s party. Ouija Boards are always creepy Halloween fun for teens. “Halloween Jenga” may be more your speed, with red and black blocks, custom rules and a special glow-in-the-dark die.
If you roll a “pumpkin,” then the direction of play is reversed; roll a “haunted house” and remove any piece or roll a “bat” and you can only remove an orange block. The Harry Potter “Scene It” DVD game is another fun one, testing kids of ages 8 and up with trivia from the Harry Potter movies.
One of the best Halloween Party games for adults is the “murder mystery dinner.” Each party member will receive an advance invitation with instructions on the role they’ll be playing. In your kit, you’ll receive instructions on Halloween recipes to cook, what Halloween decorations to set up and even how to dress.
Usually, character booklets, scripts and CD or DVDs will guide you through the plot to discover whodunnit. A few recommended murder mystery games include: “Lethal Luau Murder Mystery Party Game” with a Hawaiian theme, “A Taste for Wine and Murder” with a Hollywood theme or “A Murder on the Grill” with a summer of 1950s theme. All are from Bepuzzled.
If you’re planning a Halloween party this year, a fun selection of Halloween games is a sure way to keep guests happy. And even if you just want something to keep the kids entertained after they’ve come back home after a busy afternoon’s trick-or-treating, having a stock of amusing games on hand is a great way to get all the family involved in the Halloween spirit.
There are Halloween games that be enjoyed by children and adults of all ages — and one of the best ways to celebrate the season is to find activities that are suitable for all the family. The reason why many of the traditional, classic games have stayed so popular — like bobbing apples — is because they foster a spirit of communal entertainment, as well as fitting in nicely with seasonal themes such as the fall and the harvest.
If you’re looking for games to settle your excited revelers, why not collect some pens and pencils and sit down to a round of printed Halloween games? It’s a great way to keep the party going and perhaps get your guests ready to enjoy some more spookily delicious Halloween treats and recipes after a few rounds of your favorite game.
There is no need to put yourself to a lot of trouble to get this ready — just look online for some downloadable Halloween games that you can print and have ready in just a few moments. And you don’t need to reinvent the wheel here! Some of the most enjoyable games are the simplest ones, and there are many that appeal as much to grown-ups as to kids.
Is your party geared toward a younger age group? If so, here are a few ideas for games that they may enjoy:
* fun activities, like a treasure hunt or a variation on the classic game of “Pin the Tail on the Donkey”
* easy coloring games, drawing pumpkins or other Halloween images
* picture bingo or some sort of Halloween guessing game
* Halloween word games such as word search grids and jumbled word puzzles.
And when your guests are more mature in years or outlook, these rather more adult Halloween game ideas may be just what you need to break the ice and help everyone to get to know each other:
* sleuthing games or murder mystery games: set up a ‘whodunnit’ scenario and let your guests play detective
* general knowledge games with a Halloween or other seasonal twist
* word games that require a wider vocabulary or use of language, such as word scrambles or crosswords.
Keeping a supply of easy but entertaining Halloween games in reserve is a smart way to keep your guests amused and ensure that your party is a memorable evening of fun.
