2. Witch Seat?

What you will need:

  • Witch hat

Have children sit on the floor in a circle. One player sits in the center of the circle, wearing the witch hat. She sings out, “I’m a little witch, looking for a seat. If I call your names, get up upon your feet.” The witch then calls out two of the children’s names. Those children must exchange their seats in the circle. If the witch gets to a seat first, the person left out becomes the witch and puts on the black hat, sits in the center of the circle, sings the song and the game continues. Originally from Yahoo!

9. Ghostly Waiter


What you will need:

  • Two cookie sheets as trays
  • White balloons

The Ghostly Waiter relay race is as fun to watch as it is to play. You only need a few simple materials to creative this fun Halloween Game. You will need two trays or cookie sheets and a handful of white balloons. You will also need to create a start line and another line as a turn around point for the race. Divide your party guests into two teams. The first person on each team will balance an inflated balloon on their tray. At the word “GO”, the two guests will make their way to the turn around point balancing their balloon on the tray. If the balloon drops, they have to go back and start over. When they make it back to their team successfully, they will pass the tray to the next player. The race continues in this way until all members of a team cross the finish line. Have some extra inflated balloons in case one drops and pops. Your guests will quickly learn that this is not a race of speed, but a combination of balance and grace. Originally from Squidoo.com {here].

10. Witch Tag

What you will need:

  • Broom
  • Magic wand

In this witchy version of freeze tag, one child is assigned as the wicked witch and another is designated the good witch. The wicked witch has a broom that she must fly around on as she chases players. The good witch has a magic wand. The remaining players must run from the wicked witch. Anyone she tags has to freeze in place. The good witch must tap frozen players with her wand to set them free, without being caught by the wicked witch. After two minutes, play stops and anyone who is still frozen is turned wicked. Those who have escaped are turned into good witches. Change the players and play again until everyone has had a turn at being one of the “it” players. Originally from About.com {here].

11. Pumpkin Questions

One person stands in front of the crowd and tries not to giggle while the group takes turns asking them questions. The catch is that the person must answer every question by saying the word “Pumpkin.” It’s very difficult to keep a straight face. Some great questions are “What’s that between your eyes and lips?” or “What do you think your boyfriend’s head looks like?” What’s your favorite gift to find under a Christmas tree” “What’s that under your hat?” Get the idea? If the person laughs they loose their turn and someone else stands in front. You can use other halloween words too. Originally from Yahoo! Answers {here].

12. Halloween Eyeball Bounce

What you will need:

  • 3 Pumpkin containers or buckets
  • Ping pong balls
  • Sharpie markers; colors: red, black, blue and green
  • Candy

To make the eyeballs: Using the blue or green sharpie marker, make a round dot for the iris of the eye. Using the red marker, make veins radiating from the colored part of the eye on the white. When these dry, make the pupil of the eye with the black marker. For this fun activity, you place candy at the bottom of pumpkin containers and place them around the floor. Give the player 3 to 5 ping pong eyeballs and have them try to bounce the ball into a container. If they make it in the container, they get a piece of candy from that container. When you have the group of teens ready, send them off to hunt for pumpkins with a loud, “Go!” When a teen find a pumpkin, they get the prize that matches the number on the bottom. Originally from About.com {here].
