Selwood staff have been playing Halloween party games, these are just a handful that were enjoyed with there kids.
This game will leave you all wrapped up!
Divide your party-goers into teams of two, and give each a roll of toilet paper, white crepe paper, or fabric. At the sound of the music, one team member must wrap the other from head to toe (leaving the head free and not binding the arms to the body.) Once completely wrapped, the “mummy” must run to cross the finish line before the others.
No Halloween party is complete without this classic game. Fill a round, shallow bucket with water, add some apples, and let the fun begin. And remember — no hands allowed!
Guess The Ghost
Sit the kids in a big circle. Put some music on and take it in turns for one child to be blindfolded and walk around the circle, touching the other children’s heads. When the music stops, the child that the person who is ‘it’ has their hands on must let out a ghostly wail.
The person who is ‘it’ must try and guess who it is. If they guess correctly they swap around. If they do not guess correctly they go around the circle again.
What’s the time, Mrs Witch?
This is a simple variation on the ‘What’s the time, Mr Fox’ game. Elect one player to be Mrs Witch. They can put on the witch’s hat and hold the broom. Each of the other players stands at one end of the room with the witch at the other, with her back to the other players.
The players ask: ‘What’s the time, Mrs Witch?’ and the Witch shouts out a time, eg. 7 o’clock. The other players take the corresponding number of steps in the direction of the witch. When the players get close to the witch the witch can then should out ‘midnight’ and chase the other players. Whoever the witch catches is out of the game.
A ‘dead’ easy take on the party game standard and a great one to calm the kids down if they’re getting a little over excited! Everyone – the ‘monsters’ – lies down on the floor.
When somebody moves they’re out until only one player remains.
