Halloween - Games


Halloween Games

Haunted Houses
Draw a haunted house on a piece of 8 ½ x 11" paper
with lots of windows and doors. Make copies and give each guest one.
Provide markers, crayons, Halloween stickers and an assortment of small toy plastic skeletons, spiders, bats, bugs, pumpkins, etc. Along with glue sticks and imaginations, guests will create their own creepy scary haunted house.

Get Together Time
Spread out a blanket and gather the guests into a circle sitting around
the edges. While conducting the name game and Halloween Hullabaloo,
have a helper, friend or spouse hide small Halloween novelties for the
Witches' Brew Hunt.

Evil Spell Name Game 
Pretend that an evil ghoul (toy or homemade cloth
ghost) has cast a spell and in order to break it the children must recite this rhyme and say their name when they catch the ghastly ghost or ghoul:
Hair of a bat
Witches brew
Tell us your name
First have all the guests recite the rhyme with you. Tell the guests that on the final "BOO" you will toss the ghost. The person who catches the ghost says his or her name. Start by throwing the ghost to the birthday child. The birthday child says his or her name, then everyone recites the rhyme again. On the last "BOO" the birthday child tosses the ghost to one of the guests. Continue the game until all the guests, and you too!, have said their names.

Halloween Hullabaloo
Still sitting in the circle, show guests the assortment of Halloween figures and toys selected by the birthday child (floating eyeball, wicked witch, rubber monster face, vampire hand, creepy spider, black cat, scary pumpkin, ghost, bat, etc.) There should be as many items as the birthday child's age. Place them on the floor in front of you and name each item. Then cover the items with a "magic" scarf, perhaps a "Halloweeny" one. Instruct guests to say the magic words chosen by the birthday child-- i.e.,"Skala Kazam," "Boogedity Boo" or "Halloween Hullabaloo" --while they wave one hand in front of them.   Conceal one item as you lift off the scarf and ask the guests, "What's missing?" Call on a guest to name the missing item. After the guest has named it, return the item to its original spot. Continue the game using stronger magic by waving two hands over the scarf and repeating the magic words. Conceal two items as you lift off the scarf. Ask two different guests to each name one of the missing items. On the final round, shake both hands over the scarf while saying the magic words. This time conceal all the items as you lift off the scarf.

Witches' Brew Hunt 
Bring a plastic black cauldron or large soup pot to the Get Together Time blanket and instruct guests to retrieve their Boo Bags and return there also. "Boil, bubble, toil and trouble." Witches sure need some strange things for their brews! Pull each plastic or rubber item (what was hidden in the yard) out of the pot to show guests what they must find to add to the brew -- creepy crawly
creatures, fingernails, eyeballs, skeletons, snakes, spiders, fingers, bats, flies, frogs, rats, etc...Have the birthday child lead the guests with boo bags in hand to the hunt area all the while chanting:
Stirring and stirring and stirring our brew
ooooooooo oo oooooooooooo oo
Stirring and stirring and stirring our brew
ooooooooo oo oooooooooo oo
Tiptoe, tiptoe, tiptoe, BOO!
