27 Halloween Party Games for Kids and Adults

Halloween was meant for parties. And while getting dressed up in a costume and standing around eating candy is fun in itself, we like to go the extra mile around here to make sure all revelers are fully entertained. So, in the spirit of Halloween fun for kids and for grown-ups, we’ve got all the games you need to ensure your spooktacular shindig is a Halloween hit.

1. Candy Corn Piñata: You don’t have to fill this entire thing with candy corn, but it is highly encouraged. (via Brit + Co)

2. Witch Pitch: This makes for a really cute tabletop game for the little ones. If you could find large cauldrons, it could even be a yard game with beanbags instead of candy corn. (via Chica and Jo)

3. Clue: Your classic murder mystery makes for a great party game when you act things out rather than limiting the events to a board game. (via Camille Styles)

4. DIY Halloween Bowling Set: Kids will have fun playing and creating this one. (via Evite)

9. Pop-Up Mad Laboratory: Ready for some “ewwwwwws?” Stick some funky-textured food in jars and let your guests guess what’s really in them. (via Eighteen 25)

10. Donuts on a String: We’re not quite sure why or how this became a Halloween tradition, but we’re not complaining. With adults or kids, it’s delicious and fun to watch. (via Small Fry)

11. Fortune Telling: Whether you dress up like a crystal-ball reader yourself or hire a professional, this is sure to be a party hit. (via Matsutake)

12. Halloween Karaoke: By the end of the night you may hear a a dozen versions of Monster Mash and Thriller, but that’s kind of okay. (via KJ Paul Karaoke)
