There’s no denying it – it’s been a spooky year and in classic 2020 style, celebrating Halloween this year will be different than ever before. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be just as, if not more fun and memorable! Here at Vavavoom, we have compiled a list of our favourite Halloween games and ideas to inspire you to make the most of the spooky season.
So, grab the family, housemates, or make the most of it and host a video chat party! Whoever you’ll be celebrating this Halloween with, join us in making the most of the occasion!
1. BLINDFOLD AND SCREAM
This one is sure to make you squeamish! Make up a few disgustingly delightful bowls of all foods gooey, stinky and slimy (we recommend spaghetti, mashed bananas, and boiled eggs!), and each guest will take turns being blindfolded and having to eat or feel what lies within.
2. PASS THE PUMPKIN: TRICK OR TREAT?
The iconic “pass the parcel” game from our childhood parties, but with Halloween vibes. Get some pumpkins (removing gooey insides optional) and place some sweets/treats/mushy peas/ inside, play the music and whoever’s holding it when the music stops, gets whatever’s inside (queue evil laugh).
3. HAUNTED MUSICAL STATUTES!
The ultimate twist for the classic party game that’s sure to have everyone in high spirits. Stick on your fave Halloween themed playlist and get dancing, when the music stops everyone must freeze! (or else…).
4. TRICK OR TREAT INDOORS!
A winner for the kids (or kids at heart). Trick or treating around the street may not be happening for most this year, however, that doesn’t mean you can’t make it your own at home! Decorate the doors in your home, dress up, and get creative. Leave treats (or tricks) behind some doors and have other household members behind others! All the fun of knocking on doors without the cold – winner all round!
5. SCARY MOVIE NIGHT!
Grab some popcorn and hot chocolate and curl up on the sofa for a scary movie marathon! Cosy up with your childhood favourites such as ‘Halloweentown‘ and ‘Hocus Pocus‘, go vintage with’ Frankenstein‘ and ‘Psycho‘ or, make your blood curl with more modern horrors like ‘The Conjuring‘, ‘Saw‘, and ‘IT‘. Whatever your movie style of choice, a movie night snug in blankets with the lights off is always a win.
