What would a Halloween Party be without games?
If you are planning a Halloween Party then you have come to the right place. I am going to walk you through some really cool Halloween Games you can use that will be so much fun for everybody.
So have a Halloween Party to remember and have the kids talking about it for years to come.
Touchy Feely Boxes
I am going to start with my favorite Halloween Activity
When I was young I can remember going to a Halloween Party where they had boxes you can stick your hand in and touch things inside that you could not see. Each box had a label on the outside that said things like; Eyeballs, Brains, Fingers etc.. When you touched them it really felt like you were touching those things and being young it could get really gross. This is so easy to create, inexpensive and the kids love it no matter how many times they have done it before.
Here is what you Need:
Cardboard Boxes (decorate them if you wish) You can paint them, Wrap in Halloween paper etc...
Plastic Containers to hold all your goodies in the box (make sure it fits in the box)
Scary Goodies for the containers (see Below)
Signs or Labels to stick on the boxes stating what is inside
To make your boxes all you do is put a round hole in the box just big enough for hands to stick in and feel in the container. You can set it up so they stick in their hand through the top or front of the box.
TIP: Make sure you have Napkins or Wipes so the guests can wipe their hands when they are finished. No one wants to walk around with brain goo on their hands all night.
Have those cameras rolling - this gets pretty funny to watch.
Now here are some ideas of what to put inside the boxes:
EyeBalls - Peeled Grapes
Fingers - Baby Carrots or Little Smokie Sausages
Teeth - Feed Corn
Skin - Cabbage leaves with some oil on them
Hair - Corn Husk Silk
Magots - Over cooked rice with some oil or Cooked Orzo Pasta
Bat Wings - Pig Ears for Dogs
Brains - Jelly or Jello
Blood & Guts - Canned Peeled Tomatoes
Rat Tails - Licorice Strings Cut
Worms or Veins - Cold Cooked Spaghetti
Spiders - Pipe Cleaners
Vomit - Pudding with Corn, Peas and other food particles added in
Scabs - Dried Banana Chips
Warts - Raisins
Dried Up Tongues - Dried Apricots

Make your own Halloween Party Game
Here is one I had done for a party
My game was Pin the Eyeball on the Monster. All I did was draw a fun silly monster on Poster Board. I colored it in wiith fun colors. Then I cut out eyeballs that covered the ones on the poster. This way when it was time for the kids to stick them on it would work perfectly. I also made the eyes they were sticking on bloodshot - just to add to the fun. I also created a fun blindfold using a black foam sheet that I cut into a bat. I added details using a white crayon and attached a string for tying on the child. So when on it looked like they had a bat on their face.
You can do the same thing and create your own game poster. You can do Pin the Tooth on the Skull, Add the face to the Pumpkin, Stick a Wart on the Witch etc..
Just get creative and have fun with it. I love to be creative and making my own games for the kids.

The Mummy Wrap
Another one of my favorite Halloween Games
This is the game where you break up into teams and choose one person to be the Mummy. Then on go each team has to wrap that person up with toilet paper and the first one to use all of their toilet paper or to wrap their Mummy first wins.
It is simple and easy, BUT requires lots of toilet paper.
Tips: To choose who will be the Mummy for each team - draw names from a hat and avoid the whining.
Also be sure the Mummy's Mouth, Nose and Eyes do not get covered.

Do not forget The Halloween Costume Contest
Let the kids show off their Costumes
It is so much fun to see the kids dressed up every year. So when you have your Halloween Party give out some fun awards to make it that much more exciting for the kids who are coming. Set up an area where they can walk the spooky runway and work their costume - I think that adds to the fun.
Have awards in many Categories, buy make sure everyone goes home with an award or ribbon so there are no hurt feelings.

Lots of fun ideas. I remember too well being creeped out by the Touch and Feel game as well as a kid. Is there a way of recycling the toilet paper from the mummy wrap?
