COVID-19 is going to put a dampener on this year’s Halloween celebrations, which is totally rubbish. But, with a little planning, you can have just as much fun at home. ‘How?’ we hear you say? Here’s how, we reply via typed words.
HALLOWEEN DONUT EATING RACE!
Everyone loves a donut, but adding a competitive edge makes them even tastier. Dangle some of these ringed treats from the ceiling and try and bite them with all the skill of Dracula!
Bingo, on its own, isn’t that frightening. But with the right lighting and a ghost-like voice calling out the numbers, the pensioners’ idea of gaming takes on a spooky new meaning. House? Haunted house, more like.
HALLOWEEN TRIVIA QUIZATHON!
What’s better than a quiz? A spooky quiz, that’s what.
GHOST STORY COMPETITION!
Grab a torch and instantly transform any story into the creepiest Halloween tale ever! Even The Very Hungry Caterpillar! Remember to the turn the other lights or it will lose impact.
PIN THE SPIDER ON THE WEB!
It’s similar to the pin the tail on the donkey, without the tail or the donkey. And much scarier!
DRESS THE MUMMY!
Do you have loads of clean bandages lying around the house for some reason? See how fast you can wrap a grown up! The winner gets to eat the mummy’s Halloween sweets because they won’t be able to move very quickly. If you don’t have bandages, clean toilet roll will work just as well!
POP THE SPOOKY BALLOON!
This one’s pretty simple and lots of fun to play. Simply blow up lots of pumpkin-coloured – or ‘orange’ – balloons and put a small piece of paper into one of them. The winner who pops that balloon wins a prize. The prize is up to you!
