Halloween is just a couple weeks away, and now is the time to start planning if you are having a party for the spooky holiday. Here are some fun game, decoration, and food and drink ideas we know you and your guests will love.
Toilet Paper Mummy-
How to play- Separate into teams of 2 and the first team to wrap one person with a roll of toilet paper first wins! Mummy made!
Witch Hat Ring Toss-
How to play- Set up a couple witch hats on the ground a few feet from those competing, and the person to make the most rings on their witch hat in a set amount of time, wins! You can cut out the center of paper plates and use the outside as the rings.
Donut Eating Contest-
How to play- Set up a long string from one wall to another, and have multiple strings hanging from that, and tie donuts to those strings. The first one to finish their donut wins.
Bean Bag Toss- Use the carved pumpkins you have to use to toss bean bags into.
Bobbing For Apples- You can do this, but instead of everyone sharing a bucket, everyone has their own small bucket to prevent the spread of germs.
Pumpkin Stomp- Blow up orange balloons and scatter throughout the yard, then whoever stomps the most until they are gone, wins!
Eyeball Hunt- Just like an Easter egg hunt, but put out small plastic eyeballs throughout the yard, or inside the house and let the kids get to hunting!
Pumpkin Bowling- Use a pumpkin as a bowling ball, and you can se up tin cans, toilet paper rolls, or whatever other creative things you can think of, and get bowling.

Painted Pumpkins- Instead of the typical orange pumpkins, why not mix it up and paint them? You can do one color, or mix it up with black, purple, and greens.
Spider Web- You can never go wrong with spider web, inside and outside the house, this is fun to get creative with!
Candles- If you have a fireplace mantel or safe space for them put out a bunch of candles, and if you don’t mind it, let the wax drip down to give a really spooky effect. This looks the best with an array of sizes, and halloween colors, like black, purple, and orange.
Witch Hats- Hang witch hats from the ceiling, all over the home or party area. If it’s outside, hang many fishing lines crossing over each other, and hang the hats from those.
Food & Drinks-
Mummy Dogs- Wrap crescent roll strips around hot dogs and bake until golden brown. Once done, put a couple small dots of mustard or ketchup for eyes.
Mummy Brie- You can use the same crescent roll mix and wrap strips around a brie block, and get creative with the eyes.
Pumpkin Deviled Eggs- You can make deviled eggs, but when you fill the egg with the yolk mix, slice a few stripes down to make it look like a pumpkin. Use a cilantro or other herb stem to make the pumpkin stem.
Graveyard Enchilada Dip- Make an enchilada dip, and stick oval shaped crackers in the dip sticking up.
Syringes filled with Bloody Mary or red jello inside. These are not only creepy looking, they are also fun to drink from.
Blood Bags- You can order fake blood bags online and fill with your choice of red drink.
Black Jello Shots- Use grape jello to make black jello shots. You can even add cream or layer another color of jello, like orange or red.
