Girls Halloween Games: Take Back Fright Night With Glamor

Girls everywhere are taking over Halloween this year. Halloween has long been feared by many girls as the night where their brothers or neighbors are allowed to terrify them with scary faces and costumes and get away with it. They are saying no more. No more are they going to dread Halloween and the horrible frights awaiting them. Girls are taking back their Halloween and doing it in glamorous style.

No matter what the ages of the girls 5 - 105 girls love glamour. And what says glamour more than a party. A Halloween party that is. A Halloween party is a great time to choose a theme that fits your guests and allow the glamour to begin. Glamour can be added to your Halloween party by decorating with glitter and sparkle. You can add to the glamour by serving foods and beverages out of fun colored or glittery bowls and cups. Many come in fun shapes such as glass slippers or crowns, even some shaped like diamond rings. Napkins can add a drop of glamour also.

Games can really add the finishing touches to your party. With the idea of your guests going away looking marvelous and glammed up we have perfected the following party games.

Costume Contest

Award prizes for costumes. On your Halloween party invitation state the theme of your party and what costume prizes will be awarded. Example; Theme: Movie Stars Prizes for: Best Live Star, Best Dead Star, Best Child Star, Best 40?s Star, Best 70?s Star, Best Silent Picture Star, Best Action Film Star

Prize: Movie Tickets

High Heel Race

Set up a course for girls to run. Have each guest complete the course and time them or have the guests form teams and race each other. This depends on how many guests you have and what works better with your party venue. You may need to bring some old heels for guests to use.

Prize: Basket with foot care items including foot lotion.

Glamorous Cupcakes

Provide frosting (great flavors such as peppermint or butterscotch are fun) and glamorous decorations for guests to have fun decorating a cupcake. Decorations can include edible sparkles, colored sugars, edible beads, etc. Many of these items can be found in a cake decorating store. Provide a paper doily for each guest to write their name on the edge and set their cupcake on it to be judged. Provide a fancy cupcake holder or plate to showcase the decorated cupcakes and allow guests to judge them.

Prize: Everyone eats their own cupcake

First Prize: Gift certificate for a bakery that makes glamorous cupcakes.

Finish up the night with gift baskets or bags for each guest. Continue with your theme and add candy rings, candy necklaces and candy bracelets. Matching hair clips glammed up with glitter or feathers make a fun memory of the party. If you are able, take a group picture and email it or print it out on your home printer to include in the bag. The point here is that girls take back Halloween and have fun with it. Halloween should be looked forward to by everyone even the glamorous girls who could not be scary looking if they tried. Have a glamorous Halloween girls!

The Truth About Dress Up Halloween Games

Having trouble getting guests to agree to come to your Halloween party dressed in a costume? Then you are not alone, many guests are replying back that they are willing to attend Halloween parties but will not be attending in a costume. This is disturbing news to a Halloween party host because hosts need the party guests but a guest attending the Halloween party without a costume tends to ruin the atmosphere that the host worked so hard to achieve. If you are suffering from the dilemma of whether to allow guests to attend your Halloween party out of costume we have come up with a solution for you that will not only have all your guests in a costume but allow your guests to overcome some of their fears.

Through much research we have found that most party guests that are not willing to come to a party pre-dressed in a costume will put a costume on at the party if given the chance. Many times guests are afraid that they will be the only one dressed in a costume or that others will laugh at them and the costume choice that they made. You, as the party host, can take that fear away by having costumes ready for those guests through games at your party. These games will take many of the guest?s fears away because everyone will be dressing up before their eyes and everyone will know that they did not choose the costume themselves. If other guests laugh it will not be their fault, it will be yours.

So let?s play! The idea here is to have pieces of costumes that each guest will wear. How far in depth you go with the costumes you provide will be up to you and your budget. Start early with introducing a piece of the costume at the door. Have each guest reach into a bag and pull out part of a costume. If the costume piece is too large or does not work to have in a grab bag then have each guest draw a number and give them the costume piece that was stored. This is a nice ice breaker and will get people into the mood of wearing a costume before your first game begins.

At this point it is time to mingle and play a few games. Keep the games simple and have everybody win a prize at the end. The prize is a second piece of the costume. It is a good idea to start with little pieces of costume that are easy to wear, such as jewelry or hats, crowns, etc. Play as many games as you need throughout the party to have guests in a complete costume before the party is finished.

It is also fun to have guests make part of their own costume as a craft at the party. For example, if you were having a royalty party, each guest could decorate a crown or a sash to wear. Crowns can be easily found at party stores made out of plastic or paper. Sashes can be made by cutting silky material into strips or using paper such as streamers or even paper bags. If you have the time you can always make the costume pieces especially for each guest even putting a name on the sash or a special nickname. The more personal you make the costume, the more fun it becomes for each guest.

As far as games to play keep them simple and child like. Pin the face on the pumpkin, Monster Freeze, musical chairs (with scary music). The idea here is to keep it simple and about getting the next piece of the costume not so much about the game. Once the costumes are complete take out the cameras and get a few shots. There are some that will be shocked they had so much fun dressing up.

Adult Halloween Games: Have A Scream Of A Time

Lots of Halloween party hosts are agonizing with the idea of adding games to their adult Halloween party. Planning a Halloween party for adults can be tricky. There is a fine line between an adult Halloween party and a boring Halloween party. But as many hosts are figuring out that line is hard to see. There are many games for adults that are intellectual and have their place for a weekly game night but this party is no game night it is a Halloween party. Get rid of those boring adult games for the night and add a few of these game favorites for adults. The line between boring and fun will be clear as day and your party will definitely be on the fun side.

Great Pumpkin Weighs?

Have a large pumpkin serve double duty as a decoration and a game. As guests arrive at the party have them write down their guess of the pumpkins weight and their name. Collect the guesses in a Halloween themed box or bowl. The winner is the guest that is the closest to the pumpkins weight.

Pumpkin Golf

Carve a pumpkin with an extra large mouth. Give each guest three chances to putt a golf ball into the pumpkins mouth. Each ball that enters the pumpkin?s mouth earns the golfer a special piece of candy or treat.

Guess Who or What

This is a great ice breaker. Before the party make name tags with names of monsters or other Halloween related things. As guests arrive have them draw a name tag and place it on their back. The idea of this game is to get guests mingling. Each guest will ask others questions about who or what they are. Once a guest has figured out who or what they are they win a prize of a special drink or a treat.

Halloween Scavenger Hunt

This is an old one but with cell phone cameras we have added a new twist. Have guests divide into teams. Set the boundaries for where teams are allowed to go. Boundaries can be inside the party venue, around your block, the mall, a park, you decide. Give each team a copy of the same scavenger list that you created and copied before the party. If guests have a cell phone with capability of picture and video don?t just have them bring items back but get pictures and video of scenarios being played out - for example; a male guest trying on a pair of high heels and walking around in a store. Once guests return it is pure entertainment to look at pictures and watch the video to find a winner.

Pop the Balloon

Divide your guests into two groups. Have one team tie a balloon around their waist hanging as a tail or around their ankle depending on their costume. When you start playing fun/scary Halloween music the team without the balloons will try and pop the balloons on the other team using only their bodies and costumes. When the music stops count how many balloons are left and award those points to the team that wore the balloons. Now teams switch roles. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins. You decide how many times to repeat by the interest of your guests.

Your Adult Halloween party will be a scream when you add these games. Try one or all five. Happy Halloween.
