Children’s Halloween Party Games
- Apple Bobbing: An absolute classic, apple bobbing is a favourite at any party! This is best to do in teams of two so you can bring some friendly competition. Add more Halloween mischief by drawing jack-o-lantern faces on your apples.
*If you’re happy to make a real mess, then we suggest apple bobbing for sweets hidden in flour*
- Mummy Wrapping: Divide the children into two teams and have them select one representative from each team to become the mummy. The remaining teammates should form a single-file line. When the signal is given, each person will take turns wrapping the mummy with toilet paper, ensuring they are completely mummified. After finishing their wrapping, the players should sit down on the floor. The team that successfully unwraps their mummy in the shortest time will be declared the winner!
- Haunted Hunt: Elevate the excitement of a classic scavenger hunt with a fantastic Halloween twist! Take your guests on a spooktacular journey through your party by splitting them into teams, giving them a cauldron to collect their spooky items, and setting them on a scavenger hunt. Have them search for items including bones, fingers, fake blood, spiders, chocolate eyeballs or spooky tattoos.
- Giants, Wizards Trolls: This game is very similar to “Rock, Paper, Scissors”, but much more active! Divide your guests into two teams and get them to gather at opposite ends of the room. Each team decides which creature they want to be for the first round: either Giants, Wizards or Trolls. The whole team must be the same creature. When both teams have decided, they line up facing the other team, and everyone together yells “Giants! Wizards! Trolls!” and then whatever creature their team has decided to be. For example, a team who is Giants would yell: “Giants! Wizards! Trolls! GIANTS!” There's a small twist, when you step forward you must also perform the action: For Giants, raise your arms high overhead. For Wizards, extend your arms in front of your body as if casting a magical spell. And for Trolls, crouch down and curl your arms inward.
Now, here's the rule: Giants step on Trolls (meaning Giants defeat Trolls), Trolls tickle Wizards, and Wizards zap Giants. In each round, the team that successfully "defeats" the other team must chase the losers back to their side of the room. If any player from the losing team is tagged before touching their wall, they switch teams and join the other side. In cases where both teams end up as the same creature, it's considered a tie, and a new round begins. Keep playing until most of the children belong to a single team, creating an exciting and competitive game!
