Normally at Let’s Go Out we suggest places to go for fantastic days out around the UK, but we know that sometimes there’s no place like home. So with autumn in full swing and the spooky delights of Halloween just around the corner, what could be better than gathering your friends and family for some frightful fun and games?
Here’s five ideas from the Let’s Go Out team for your Halloween party – all treats, no tricks!
Guess the Scary Film
There are hundreds of scary films to watch at this time of year, but do you know your Freddie Krugers from your Norman Bates? Divide your guest into teams and play some short scary film clips from YouTube (you might want to turn the screen around so they can only hear the audio) – the team to guess the most correctly wins!
Apple bobbing is a very popular fairground game, so why not give it a Halloween theme by using mini pumpkins? Fill a couple of large plastic containers with water and some mini pumpkins. Players have their hands tied behind their backs and have to get as many pumpkins out as possible using just their mouths! The player with the most pumpkins wins.
Skeleton Treasure Hunt
Challenge your guests to find the bones that have been hidden in your house and garden, when they find them all they will create a whole skeleton. You can buy a cardboard skeleton and just cut out the different parts to hide away. If you’ve got the time you could lay out clues for them to follow, or have two teams racing each other.

Pin the Wart on the Witch
A spooky twist on the classic pin the tail on the donkey – players are blindfolded and try to correctly place the wart on the witch’s face. All you need is a blown-up picture of a witch and a bit of pink bluetac for the wart. You can give out points depending on how near they get to the correct place.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Halloween without dressing up in silly scary costumes. Make it a real competition by saying that all costumes have to be home-made – shop-bought costumes are no fun! You could have a theme like ‘80s horror films’ or ‘comic book villains. Or say that all men have to dress as a female character and vice versa! Take a vote to see who has the most popular get up.
