When you throw a Halloween party, games are the center of attention. Sometimes, however, you want the fun of a Halloween party with just your close friends and family. Maybe Mom, Dad and the kids want to enjoy a little Halloween party games fun without all the stress of a party.
If you like to play games as a family, here are some awesome Halloween party games to enjoy with one another throughout the scary season:
1. Sweep the Pumpkin
This is one extremely fun Halloween party game that is fun at any age. Simply buy some cheap orange balloons and paint some fun pumpkin faces on them. Each person takes one balloon and a broom or mop and tries to maneuver it through a backyard obstacle course of your choosing. This is fun because it is tougher than it looks and a popped balloon is always a possibility!
2. Make Your Own Horror Movie/Play
What is more fun than writing and acting out a play or movie as a family? Have one person in charge of each area of the movie or play and have fun with it! You can easily video the production with a basic camera or video cam setup.
3. Make Me a Scarecrow
This frugal game is the perfect Halloween party game for families because it uses things already found in the home. Gather up all the things needed to build a scarecrow including newspaper, old clothes, pillowcases and stuffing of any kind. Take some magic markers and various other items to snazz it up and compete in teams to make the best scarecrow/witch/whatever.
4. Wrap That Mummy
Toilet paper is not ultra cheap, but it is cheap enough (especially if you are using your coupons) to have some fun with. Give teams of two toilet paper rolls (2 per team) and race to see who can cover their mummy first. Nothing can show except the eyes, nose and mouth in the end to win. To make it particularly challenging, you can cover both people. The person that covers the second person has to do it while draped in toilet paper making it especially fun and challenging.
5. Zombie Races
Everyone has a zombie walk. You know the one… straight legs, moaning sounds and arms reaching forward. Determine ahead of time what qualifies as a zombie walk and then race doing exactly that. Trust me when I tell you that you need to videotape the ensuing fun. There are bound to be plenty of funny moments.
These frugal Halloween party games for families are far from the only ones out there, but they are certainly some of the best. Give them a try on a random weekend and you will see that Halloween fun can be for the entire family!
