Want to scare up some fun this Halloween?
A Halloween party wouldn’t be complete without the ghoulish games to entertain.
We’ve put together a list of our favourites, including traditional Halloween games and much more. Petrifyingly perfect for the entire family to enjoy.
Let’s get the party startled.
Apple bobbing has been a traditional Halloween game for hundreds of years.
This fun game is played by filling a bucket with water and placing the apples into it. Apples are less dense than water, so will float to the surface.
Each player must try to grab an apple using only their teeth. Ready, steady, bob!
Witches hat ring toss
This classic Halloween witch hat ring toss game is so easy to follow. And, you can create the DIY game yourself.
- Using thick black paper or thin card, fold into a cone shape. Stick the sides together with Sellotape or glue.
- Make a circle shape base using black card for the bottom. Stick the cone shape into the centre of the circle to create the witches’ hat.
