Whether you're answering the door and giving out candy or out taking trick-or-treaters around, sometimes it can get a little dull, especially if you're waiting for a long time. There are plenty of games you can play on Halloween to help pass the time. Here are a few ideas.
Judge the Costume. My husband and I love to pick our favorite costumes of the event as well as the month since we usually go to so many Halloween festivities. My favorite of all time was Little Dead Riding Hood. The costume must be in person (not on TV or a magazine) to qualify.
We recently discussed how just about any game can be made into a Halloween game with the right spin, props and some creativity. Cosmopolitan has released a list of 15 fun Halloween games to try at your next party and some of them look like a lot of fun.
If you're looking for a super scary twist for game night, find the scariest place in your state or area and head there for some fun (if you can!). You can bring your own games to enjoy in the spooky area (and flashlights if you can do it in the dark!), or you can just act like silly kids and play the kind of games you played when you were ten years old.
Happy Independence Day! Are you looking for some fun activities to do throughout the day? Here are some great Fourth of July games and ideas.
Sign your own Declaration of Independence, learn to fold the flag and make an edible flag!
Play Fourth of July BINGO, red white and blue tag, and these other fun games.
Have a Valentine party coming up? Plan a few easy games to have fun and celebrate the holiday. You don’t need a bunch of supplies, either. Here are some fun, inexpensive games to play.
Cake Eating Contest. Bake a few heart-shaped cakes and see who can eat them fastest—or slip secret candies inside and see who can find the candy the fastest.
I like to make really personalized gifts for the holidays. This year I got so behind that I didn’t make much at all, which is too bad because I had so many good ideas—from this homemade owl puppet set for my daughter (which is totally going to be in her Easter basket) to personalized BINGO cards for my family.
If you’re planning a Christmas party, you may be way behind the curve. Many people who want to throw a Christmas party have already sent out invitations and received RSVPs. While many parties are planned right up to and including Christmas Eve, most begin the first week of December and continue through the weekend prior to Christmas.
I received my first Christmas party invitation today. I was surprised—to say the least—but I suppose I really shouldn’t be. After all, Christmas sales are being advertised that exhort customers to choose gifts now and place them on lay-a-way to be paid off for Christmas. Now to be sure, my party invitation did not indicate that this was a Christmas party. Rather, the title of the invitation was “Holiday Party.”
