Halloween Party Games


A few simple games are always fun at a party. Here are some great party games from our e-book Halloween on a Dime. You can even take some of your old favorites and put a Halloween twist on them. Instead of pin the tail on the donkey, make it pin the stem on the pumpkin.

For adult parties, have everyone come in a costume that they can’t be identified in. The host and hostess can leave the house, too, and pretend like they are walking in with the other guests so even they can’t be identified. Tell everyone they can’t talk for a certain amount of time during which they are supposed to try and figure out who is who.

It can be very funny with everyone just sitting and looking at each other in those weird costumes. My parents did this once and one of the guest had a mask with no mouth in it. He wanted to eat some of the candy that was sitting on the the coffee table so the whole time he kept placing candy through the nose hole of his mask, causing everyone to laugh.

Here are a couple of more games that both kids and adults will enjoy.

Be sure to check out Halloween on a Dime for more great Halloween recipes and ideas.

Leaf Leap

Hide lollipops, small bags of candy or wrapped treats in a huge pile of leaves. Then have all the kids hunt for them in the leaves.

Halloween Guess It Game

In this game, you challenge the participants to reach into mystery boxes filled with creepy things and try to guess what each item is. The person with the most correct answers wins the game. An example is if you want them to guess “grapes”, you might try to confuse them by saying, “I think it’s eyeballs…”

Cut a hole in the top of a shoe box or laundry box for each item to be used. Cover the box with black spray paint. Decorate each box with pumpkins or spiders for a more festive flavor. Place the following items inside, one per box. Be sure to place enough of each item so the guests can adequately “feel” the guts.

Eyeballs- grapes or peeled cherry tomatoes
Intestines- cooked Spaghetti
Skin- oil a piece of plastic bag
Brains- scrambled eggs
Hair- an old clown wig
Bones- thoroughly washed chicken bones placed in some sand
Vomit- chunky salsa
Fingers- hot dogs cut into finger sized pieces
Teeth- corn nuts, pine nuts or popcorn

Here is a fun Halloween game that I plan on trying at our Church party…


Have all the children stand in a circle. The first child takes a skein of yarn and ties one end around his or her waist, then tosses it across the circle to another child. That child wraps the yarn around his waist and tosses across the circle to a different child. Once all the children have received the yarn, the last child ties it off around his or her own waist and cuts the yarn. Now comes the fun part — trying to untangle the spiderweb without cutting the yarn!!!!!!!
