Halloween Games, Decorations, Crafts - Fiendish Fun That Will Liven Up Any Halloween Theme Party

Halloween crafts, games and decorations - Halloween brings to mind a variety of Halloween images and sounds that can be scary as well as fun. Halloween is the night of ghouls, little witches, ghosts and sneering Jack O'Lanterns perched on the porch of creepily decorated haunted houses. It is an opportunity to turn your house into a haunted house and to dress it up as much, or as little as you want, and to invent a selection of Halloween games, activities and crafts to entertain the young, and young at heart, for the entire spooky evening with Halloween lights, Halloween special effects, and use a variety of Halloween decorations outside too.

One of the most important jobs for a Halloween party host is creating the perfect Halloween atmosphere. Strategically placing the Halloween props, producing a creepy atmosphere by using a wide range of horrifically ghoulish decorations, playing eerily spooky background music, and providing a variety of frightfully freaky food and devilish drinks all help to guarantee that the guests at the Halloween theme party will have a great time.

Halloween Decoration Ideas for Outdoors

Putting Halloween decorations outdoors will convert any plain house and front yard into a wonderfully weird and scarily spooky haunted house! If you have a particularly large yard you may want to erect some horrendous Halloween head stones with a dilapidated graveyard gate or similar haunted house scenery. You can finish the whole creepy effect off by dangling spooky skeletons, cob webs, or ghosts from the branches of trees. Or if you live in a condo, or an apartment, then you can always use other types of haunted house decorations such as a frightening warning sign, or mini orange pumpkin lights around the door and windows.

Halloween Decoration Ideas for Indoors

Once you have decorated the outside of your house with Halloween decorations, then you can move onto the inside. It is extremely easy to recreate a haunted house atmosphere filled with floating witches, ghosts, goblins, and other spooky shapes. All you need is some imagination, and a few props. There is no need to spend ages decorating either, because you can easily create the perfect haunted house party atmosphere with some spooky displays and Halloween decorations, a few scary Halloween special effects, and some deliciously devilish Halloween food. You can use some haunting Halloween lighting, including candles, black or orange light bulbs, or indoor mini-lights. Fake cobwebs are also great for adding that terrifying touch. Always bear in mind the age group that you are catering for when you are planning your indoor Halloween decorations, because you want it to be a fun evening, and not give them nightmares for weeks to come!

Halloween Crafts Ideas

There is a wide range of Halloween crafts that are perfect for any Halloween party. Actually planning your Halloween activities for a kids' Halloween party is almost as much fun as watching the little monsters working on them. Kids love being creative and showing off their creepy Halloween craft creations, and it is a good idea to plan some Halloween crafts for them to do at their Halloween party. You can make things easier if you set them up before hand, and make them quick to clean up afterwards. It is important to make sure that you consider the ages of the kids who are going to be doing the Halloween crafts and make sure that you pick them at the right level. If they are too difficult, or even too simple, then the little ghost might really turn into little monsters! Always make sure that all of the materials that you use are non-toxic, especially the pens, paints, and glues, and that they are washable too.

Halloween Party Games

Everyone loves Halloween games; not only are they popular with the younger guests at your party, because they love getting prizes, but the older Halloween party guests also enjoy them because they can show off their skill and have some fun. You can adapt traditional favorites into Halloween games to keep the little ghosts and ghouls occupied. For example, you could transform an Easter egg hunt into a Halloween treat hunt, or a spooky scavenger hunt, or play pin the mouth on a Halloween pumpkin instead of pin the tail on the donkey. Older kids, and adults, would enjoy a game of charades with a Halloween theme, where all of the items acting out have to have a Halloween twist to them, such as scary movies, or books. You can adapt almost any game to cater for any age group and turn it into a Halloween party game.
