Halloween Party Ideas
Monster Footprints

With a magic marker, draw a footprint in a big sponge. Cut out the footprint. Pour washable paint in an 1/8 inch aluminum pan. Press the sponge in the paint and sponge footsteps up your sidewalk to your front door for trick-or-treaters to follow, or around the side of your dark, spooky house. Flip the sponge upside down to stamp the other foot.

Crumple up a piece of tissue paper into a ball. Place it into the center of a flat piece of tissue paper. Pick up the corners of the flat tissue and twist it around the ball. Tie a twist tie or a piece of string around the ghosts's neck. Draw a face with a felt pen. You can hang them up all over the house! You can also glue on yarn, and make a black hat and cape from colored paper to make a witch!

  Body Parts

This is a good decoration for a dimly lit room at party time. Have several bowls of body parts displayed to horrify your friends. Cut up a bunch of hot dogs lenghwise for severed fingers.Cook some spaghetti noodles and add some red and blue food coloring for veins. A bunch of cocktail onions rolling around in a bowl looks like eyeballs. Fill a red balloon with warm water and spread it with strawberry jam. Invite your guests to touch your brain!

Sound Effects

You can record several scary sounds and play it back during the festivities. A very large sheet of poster board or sheet metal makes great thunder. Uncooked rice poured onto a cookie sheet sounds like rain. Crinkle a handful of cellophane for a roaring fire. To get a good scream you can, well -- scream. Snap carrots in half for the sound of breaking bones. Flap a plastic bag in front of the microphone for the

sound of bats. Slowly blow bubbles with a straw into a bowl for that bog sound. Hunt around your house and the garden to find a squeaky hinge somewhere and tape it before someone gets to it with a can of oil.

When you have everything so dimly lit it's a good idea to have some reflective tape over the Exits. A black light bulb is always a good effect, especially if you are dressed as a skeleton!

Halloween Game Idea – Ghost Hunting!

At a kid’s Halloween party once, I participated in a cool game that would make a great addition to any party, kids or adults. It’s goofy enough to get in some good laughs, and kids will go wild with fun! I call it Ghost Hunting, and it involves you, a ghost, and some stomping. It’s just you and your ghostly ally…. against the WORLD!! For best results, have at least five players. The more the merrier!

Here is what you need:
Black Marker
Glow sticks that can wrap around you like a bracelet or a necklace.
Glow-in-the-dark balloons/white balloons and a black light.
First, grab a balloon and blow him up. Next, draw the creepiest ghoul face you can muster. The scarier the face, the more likely your opponents will wet themselves, and therefore give you more time for stomping! Also, don’t forget to name him. Something not too out of the ordinary… Dexter, William, Casper or Gretchen.

If by any chance your little friend should fall due to the enemy during combat, you are obligated to call out your ghosts name and ask why. I shall demonstrate for you… “POP!! No, Dexterrrrrrrrr! Whyyyyyyyyy???!!!!”

Next, tie your scary teammate to your ankle. Don’t have too much string between the two of you, or he will be near impossible to defend. However, you don’t want him right on your heal either, unless you like bleeding heals

Finally, throw on some glow sticks to avoid crashing into each other, and hit the lights! If using a black light to make the white balloons glow, turn that one on now. If you start feeling something touching you but don’t see any glow sticks nearby, stay calm, you are merely being groped by an actual ghost. So be sure you all decide on a safe word before you hit the lights… Tee Hee!!
No grabbing or holding any opponents.
No non-ghost allies.
No covering your ghost.
Once your ghost has passed on to the next world, you must sit out. Do not attempt to stomp anymore ghosts.
The partner of the last ghost standing wins!
Have multiple ghosts attached per game. Three on the same ankle for example.
Team ups. Four vs. four for example. (Two Ghosts and Two Humans.)
No glow sticks. (This is a more dangerous version, and therefore more awesome!)

Good  hunting!!
