Halloween Game to Play
Whether you are hosting a kids Halloween party or one for adults we have a huge supply for you!
I don't know about you but I love Halloween. I get to dress up in a cool costume and act goofy.
My kids love the candy, and so does my husband!
My favorite part of course is to get the house all decorated and throw a wild party. We have a good list to pick a halloween game to play from. The games can spice up your party!
There are always fun witch fingers to carmel apples and everything in between. And if my treats don't work out-hey just put some candy out and no one will be the wiser.
If you are throwing a kids halloween party my suggestion is to have it earlier in the day. Before trick-or-treating. That way they are still excited, instead of exhausted. Try Two Heads Are Better Than One!
In addition to finding a Great Halloween Game to Play. You can do all kinds of activities with kids like decorating cookies, or making candied apples. Eating donuts off a string or telling ghost stories are old classics that work every time. For more games go to our kids section.
If you are throwing an adult halloween party, later in the evening is a better time. It's more festive if it's dark outside. For an adult party don't forget the best costume prize and a pumpkin carving contest. These things only get better with age and experience.
If you are giving an intimate party try a Murder Mystery party
Everyone loves a good murder on Halloween!
For a larger party use some of our adult games. They are sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Personally I like relays to keep the excitement going!

Good luck and Happy Haunting!
Looking for some fun trivia for your party? Or just to appease your curiosity. Here are some fun facts and history about Halloween. In addition to that special Halloween Game to Play these facts will be great.
*Halloween, referred to as All Hallows Eve, was originally a pagan holiday in which they honored the dead. It was celebrated on October 31 since this was the last day of the Celtic calendar. The celebration dates back some 2,000 years
*The ancient Celts thought that spirits and ghosts wondered the streets on all Hallows Eve so they began wearing masks and costumes in order to not be recognized as human
*The jack-o-lantern tradition comes from an old Irish folk tale about a man named Stingy Jack. It was said that he was unable to get into heaven and was turned away from the devil because of his tricky ways. So he set off to wander the world looking for a resting place. For light, Stingy Jack used a burning coal ember in a hollowed out turnip. When the Irish immigrated to the U.S. during the Great Potato Famine of 1845-1850, they found that turnips were not as readily available like they were in the homeland. So they started carving pumpkins as a replacement for their tradition.
*On Halloween, Irish peasants would beg the rich for food. For those that refused, they would play a practical joke. So, in an effort to avoid being tricked, the rich would hand out cookies, candy, and fruit – a practice that morphed into trick-or-treating today
All Things Edible
