From costume contests to traditional Halloween games, there are countless options to keep children and adults alike entertained. Here you will find some new and some traditional games to spice your holiday up.
Who doesn't remember that game? Simply fill a tub with water and add some apples. The only rule: NO HANDS. Player must put there hands behind their back and use their teeth to grab an apple. Have 2 or more players at the same time and whoever gets one first wins!
You're going to need plenty of toilet paper for this one. (No, it's not to tp someone's house!) Have a few small groups of 2 or more people and a couple judges. Each team will need to decide who they are going to wrap. The players remaining will be doing the "wrapping". The judges will give a set amount of time and when the timer goes off everyone stops and the judges will decide who they think looks like the best mummy.
Traditionally known as "pin the tail on the donkey", there are so many different versions you can use for Halloween.
Pin the Spider on the Web
Pin the Teeth on Dracula
Pin the Eye on the Monster
Pin the Heart on the Skeleton
Pin the Stem on the Pumpkin
Pin the "Boo" on the Ghost
With this game, all you need is a jar and a whole lot of candy corn (and of course someone willing to count them). Put the candy corn in the jar after counting them and have your guests try and guess how many there are. Whoever is the closest wins the jar of candy.
Pass out paper and pens to your guests and see who can find the most words from the letters in Happy Halloween. The general rules are usually no duplicating letters (you can only use the letters provided) and words have to be 3 letters or more to qualify.
There are so many games that you can just simply change one or more words of the name of the game to make it fit with the holiday like: Three Legged Monster Race, Ghost or "Boo" Bowling (just use rolls of paper towels as your pins), Halloween Charades, Pumpkin Hunt (instead of Easter Egg Hunt), and so many more.
There are so many ways to entertain your guests or classroom during this holiday, the only hard part is deciding which games you don't want to play.
