Halloween is creeping up quickly, and you know what that means: hordes of young ghouls and ghosts will be flocking to the streets to trick-or-treat and attend spooky parties. If you’re planning one of these get-togethers, you’ll need plenty of activities and snacks to keep the mini-monsters engaged. A party catering service can take care of the munchies, but the games are up to you. Here are three activities sure to be a terrifyingly fun time.
What to Play at a Kids’ Halloween Party
1. Pop the Pumpkin
Blow up orange balloons and scatter them across your yard. Just make sure the wind doesn’t blow these makeshift pumpkins away. From there, you can add rules as you see fit. This game can be a race to see who can pop the most balloons, a luck-of-the-draw game in which small pieces of paper inside the balloons tell kids what prize they win, or other variations. Let your imagination go wild and anticipate lots of pops! After running around so much, your guests will be ready for a snack served up by your party catering service.
2. Pin the Tail on the Black Cat
Pin the Tail on the Donkey is a classic party game suitable for kids of all ages, but it doesn’t exactly fit the spooky atmosphere of a Halloween bash. With some changes, however, you can keep the basics of the game while adding a fun, holiday twist. Creating an eerie black cat and several tails from construction paper is one option, or maybe your attendees would like pinning the face on the jack-o-lantern.
3. Toilet Paper Mummy Race
What partygoer will be able to resist the opportunity to make a mummy out of one of their friends? After dividing the kids into teams, have each group pick the team member who will become the mummy. Once you give the word, each team races to wrap their mummy up in toilet paper. This activity will produce lots of great photos. If competition isn’t a theme of the party, you can have a “mummy station” where kids can get all wrapped up instead. But the wrappings might not last too long with the delicious spread from the party catering service ready to be devoured by the little mummies.
