Given that a new season is beginning, if you postpone scheduling your Halloween stuff now, you may find you are unable to get just what you are hunting for. Even if it is just games you will need, it is never too early to begin putting together the perfect Halloween party. The following are five games you may want to think about when giving the most truly ultimate Halloween party:1. Halloween Scavenger Hunt - cool for all age groups... kids and adults alike. You choose what you want them to find. Seeing as all neighborhoods are different, you can customize their list for the area you are in... or just send the guests to the local mall and ask them to hit up the stores and shoppers for their random objects.2. Scavenger Art Contest - Take the objects you collected from the scavenger hunt and instruct the participants construct something "freaky" from them. Provide extra craft tools, like scissors, glue, etc... and see what happens. Best art project wins.3. Pin the Skin on the Skeleton - Eeew! Just like pin the tail on the donkey, but not the same game. Instead of a donkey, get a paper skeleton and put it on the wall. Mark a spot on the skeleton for the players to "re-skin". You can use flesh colored material and a push-pin, or if you really want to freak people out, buy a chicken and use real chicken skin. Blindfold them and let them try and hit the mark. Closest wins.4. Bobbing for Apples - a distinct standard for any Halloween bash, so why not throw in a surprise? You can do more than use just a standard black cauldron and red apples. You can try coloring the water, or depositing some rubber spiders, snakes or worms. You can also discover a few other gross things to toss in the tub too, like severed fingers and fake eyeballs. Surround the cauldron (safely) with chunks of dry ice or an Ultrasonic Water Mist maker for a Halloweenish fog effect.
5. Guess What This Is! - the most horrible touch & feel game you can participate in. I do not know if this game has a name other than that, but that is what I call it. This activity happens to be my favorite for freak-out entertainment. Here is how it plays out: Ahead of time, you get a box, where on one side you pick really nasty smelling items and place them there, then match them with something slightly less harmless to feel on the other side (like doggie doodoo and a ripe banana...yuk!) The main point of this game is that you are instructing the teams to identify the item they touch. The trick is, you are encouraging them to smell something other than what they are touching to jumble with their minds. Feel open to get extremely creative here. This event can be extremely enjoyable, pleasureable to watch, and makes for great entertainment.Need further information on Halloween ideas, great costumes or supplies?
