Mummy Wrap

All you need for this game is either a few rolls of toilet paper, some white fabric, or white crepe paper. It is a really fun and easy game that doesn’t require spending a lot of money. When you get stuck inside due to rain on Halloween night, or you want to have fun with the kids during your Halloween bash, it is perfect! For the Mummy Wrap game, take the group of people playing and split them up into two teams. One person on each team will be wrapped, and the others will wrap him or her. Set a timer and the team that manages to cover their mummy first wins the game. You can also add to it by having the mummy run to a finish line to win.

Pumpkin Painting

One of the easiest ways to keep partygoers entertained AND provide them with a souvenir to take home is Pumpkin Painting. Provide each guest with a mini pumpkin. It can be a real one purchased at your local farmers market or grocery store – or – you can use plastic decor pumpkins instead. With plastic pumpkins, their unique creation will never rot!  Set up a decorating station so that guests can come and go whenever the creative mood strikes them. Provide paint pens, permanent markers, stickers, glitter glue, and more.

Bob For Apples – with a twist!

This is a fun apple-bobbing game, but with a twist. You are going to get a large bucket or bin to put the water and apples in first. Put all green apples, but one red apple. The red apple is going to be the ‘poison’ apple from the Evil Queen. Everyone playing is blindfolded and will be bobbing for apples. The twist is that the winner is the one who manages to get the poisoned red apple.

Skeleton Race

You can also play a little relay race in your backyard before it gets dark on Halloween. To make it themed for Halloween, you are going to have a skeleton race. What you are going to do is make two large skeletons with the same number of bones. They should fit on large pieces of cardboard. Two teams will need to run to the other side of the yard to grab one bone at a time, return it to the cardboard, and tape it up in the right spot. They keep going back and forth until the firs team with a finished skeleton wins.  Pro Tip:  Save time by using a pre-made hanging paper skeleton – All bones are ready to go!

Pin the Wart

Here is an alternative to the Pin the Tail on the Donkey game. You need a large printout of a witch, but you really just need her face. (Not up for drawing it yourself? Use this printable witch mask) Cut out circles from green construction paper as the warts. Blindfold the party guests and have them take turns trying to to pin (use tape) their wart onto the witch. The closest one to the tip of the witch’s nose wins.
