Halloween is a time for scary outfits, trick or treating, and a whole lot of fun in between. You might have your Halloween costume ideas sorted and ready to dish out plenty of scares, but why stop there? If you’re hosting a party with friends or celebrating with family, you’ll need some fun Halloween games to add to the mix.
Whether you’d prefer to play outdoor Halloween games, or rather stay indoors, we at SweepSouth have come up with some awesome games to make the day tons of fun! Get ready to suit up in your Halloween costumes (the more creative, the better), and immerse yourself in the 5 Halloween games we’ve listed below.
When Is Halloween?
Before looking at the different Halloween Games you can try, here’s a quick reminder that Halloween is celebrated every year on October 31. People usually celebrate and go to Halloween parties on the closest weekend to the day, but some people enjoy a whole week of celebrations and call it ‘Halloweek’.
What Games Can You Play For Halloween?
- Mummy Egg Relay Race
- Pumpkin Carving Competition
- Charades Or Pictionary – Halloween Style
- Spider Web Twister
- Pumpkin Balloon Pop
1. Mummy Egg Relay Race
Looking for a fun and festive way to celebrate Halloween with your family and friends? Why not try a mummy egg relay race? The goal of the game is simple: using only toilet paper, players must wrap their partner up like a mummy. Then, each team must race to the finish line while balancing an egg on a spoon. The first team to cross the finish line without dropping their egg is the winner! Not only is this game a blast to play, but it’s also a great way to get everyone into the Halloween spirit. So go ahead and give it a try – you’re sure to have a spooktacular time!
2. Pumpkin Carving Competition
One of the best things about Halloween is getting to carve pumpkins. It’s a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy, and it’s also a great way to get into the Halloween spirit. If you’re looking for a way to make your pumpkin carving even more fun, why not turn it into a competition? You can invite friends and family over to see who can carve the best pumpkin, and you can even give out prizes for the top three winners. So if you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate Halloween this year, be sure to consider hosting a pumpkin carving competition.
3. Charades Or Pictionary – Halloween Style
Charades is one of our favourite games at SweepSouth, but to make it extra festive, we like to base the charades on Halloween movies or TV shows. For example, one person might act out “Stranger Things” while another person guesses. Or why not pull out the drawing board and give Halloween-style Pictionary a go instead? The possibilities for spooky drawings are endless! So next time you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate Halloween, consider trying out one of these classics with a twist.
4. Spider Web Twister
What’s better than playing a regular game of Twister? Playing a Halloween version where the mat is designed to fit the theme. Simply take some string and secure it to a white mat in a spider web shape using tape or Prestik. You can also cover it in spiders for an extra scare! As you attempt to follow the instructions, you’ll have to dodge and weave your way around these creepy crawlies. But that’s all part of the fun. With this mat, you can add a whole new level of difficulty (and excitement) to the classic game of Twister. So if you’re looking for a terrifying twist on a classic game, look no further than spider web twister.
5. Pumpkin Balloon Pop
Pumpkin balloon pop is a simple game that can bring about lots of fun! The object of the game is to pop balloons with a piece of paper inside them that tells you what prize you’ve won. The prizes can be anything from candy to small toys, or even one or two larger prizes for adults. To play, you’ll need orange ‘pumpkin’ balloons and a piece of paper for each prize. Write the name of the prize on each piece of paper and then fold it up and put it inside a balloon. Inflate the balloons and tie them off. Then, mix up the balloons and get popping! Pumpkin Balloon Pop is a great game for kids and adults alike, and it’s sure to get everyone into the Halloween spirit!
If you’re looking for a fun way to celebrate Halloween, but don’t necessarily feel like going out, you can stay home or head to a friend’s place for a full day of Halloween games. If you need help preparing for the games or cleaning up afterwards, remember to book a professional cleaning service with SweepSouth. Have a spine-chilling Halloween!
