I'm throwing a Halloween party for DS and 7 of his friends after school the Friday before Halloween and would welcome any ideas please.

Thought I'd bring them home, shut the curtains and put some battery powered tea lights on and let them watch a suitable DVD (any suggestions?) then do tea and them some games. Has anyone any ideas for games that don't involve too much space?

Traditional apple bobbing?

The mummy/loo roll game? For which you need some tame adults to be the mummies, and the children are supplied with loo roll to wrap them to look like mummies. First team to complete wins, you can add a prize for best wrapped too. (And then be using re-rolled loo roll for weeks afterwards!)

We'll definitely do apple bobbing. Tried the mummy game before but they all seemed to find it really difficult and heir looo roll kept tearing. Maybe I need to buy more expensive stuff?!

I seem to remember from my childhood an activity where you tell a story with gory props like peeled grapes for eyeballs but I can't remember any more about it.

Find the eyeballs in the bowl of brains using only your feet ...

Put lots of cold cooked spaghetti in a large washing up bowl/similar, put in a couple of spoons of oil to make the "brains" nice and slimy

Hide a couple of marbles in the "brains"

2 players take off their socks, have to find the eyeballs/marbles with their feet and pick them up with their toes, first one to get one is the winner!!

That sounds suitably revolting narniasnarnia grin Thank you!

I reckon ketchup for blood would go down well in one or other game?
