11 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 by itself, we like to go the extra mile around here to make sure all revelers are fully entertained. So, in the spirit of holiday fun for kids and for grown-ups, we have 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. Costume Contest: Who wore it best? Make a game of it by having your guests grab mug shot-style photos. (via Brit + Co)
3. Ghost Piñatas: It’s almost a shame to whack this adorable piñata family with a bat, but that’s the name of the game, right? (via Demetres)
4. S’mores Pie Find: Hide a plastic ring or skeleton bone in the pie. Whoever finds it in their slice gets to be king or queen of the party that night and decide the best costume! (via A Kailo Chic Life)
5. Mummy Bowling Game: The budget set you found for your nieces and nephews gets a new (undead) life once a year with some gauze and googly eyes. (via Giggles Galore)
7. Favors and Stuff Design Scary Movie Trivia ($8): See how well you and your guests actually know Halloween, pop culture, and more! Whoever wins gets an extra goody bag for the road.
8. Serial Killer Match Game: Ok, this one is more for the adult crowd. See who can match up the killers with their correct names. (via The House That Lars Built)
9. Classic Ouija Board ($22): This is a classic and very likely to spook everyone in attendance. Do you dare?
10. Spin the Ghost Slime Bottle: Slime or not, this game has lasted through the ages for a reason! (via Handmade Charlotte)
9. Murder Mystery Game: Here’s another one for the adults. As part of your event invite, include a character sheet and a description of the plot. The game is afoot once the last guests arrive. (Photo via Getty)
10. Halloween Bingo: Who will complete their card first? Bonus points can be allotted for creative interpretation of the squares. (via Studio DIY)
11. Karaoke: You don’t need a fancy machine to get this one going. Just grab a microphone, YouTube lyrics, and speakers. Who doesn’t want to do the “Monster Mash”? Or “Thriller”? (Photo via Getty)
