I know it's ages away yet, but I have promised DD age 5 that she can have some friends round for a halloween party (mainly to avoid them going trick or treating!). I am racking my brains for some suitable games to play, as a lot of the ones I can think of with a halloween theme will give them nightmares. I don't think that would go down too well with the other parents! Any ideas for age suitable activities?
Spooky pictures to colour in, Pin the nose on the witch, Face painting/tattoos, apple bobbing, putting your hand into a slime bucket to see what you can identify, trying to pick out a sweet with your teeth from a tray filled with flour (dd1 managed to do it without a dot of flour on her, other dcs went around looking like they'd seen a ghost) any of those do?
Can't wait for Halloween, dh and I will celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary on it this year.
Standard party games with a slight halloween twist (like suitable music) - apple bobbing, all the stuff niche said which all sounds good.
Be a bit careful though - DS went to a halloween party and they had someone dressed as the invisible man (bandages + hat) opening the door and saying 'boo' to the DC as they arrived. One little boy had complete hysterics and ended up having to be taken straight home again - quite a few others were scared too - and they were mostly 6 or 7...
