HALLOWEEN GAMES FOR ALL AGES
For some people, the scariest night of the year is Halloween. For others, it’s party planning!
Halloween is a great time to spend with your family and friends, spooking up the evening. It’s a time to get dressed up in costumes, go trick-or-treating, and have fun with friends. But if you’re throwing a party or hosting one at your house, it can be hard not to fall into the trap of following tired trends like pumpkin carving contests. Let’s be honest when we were teenagers we didn’t really want to play Pin The bow on Mr Bones either. Similarly. when we were young, I’m sure we wanted something more than just chips and dip, so why would anyone expect any different now? We wanted something fun! Something that will get everyone up off their bums and involved in the festivities.
