Keep the kids busy with a Halloween scavenger hunt. It’s a great addition to any Halloween party!
When I was a kid, I can remember the excitement of dressing up and eagerly waiting for dark so I could go trick-or-treating.
My aunt would bring her girls over and my cousin and I would literally run from house to house in competition with our sisters seeing who could get the most candy.
We weren’t into having Halloween parties until we were older, but we won’t discuss that now.
A Halloween scavenger hunt is a great addition to a kids Halloween party for several reasons.
First, it’s fun, obviously.
Second, it allows kids to bond and make new friends and teaches them to work together.
And third, it gives moms a chance to socialize (assuming you aren’t crazy enough to take the kids by yourself).
Older kids who are too ‘mature’ for trick-or-treating can also have fun with this on Halloween night.
It will give them a chance to run around having fun with their friends and help keep them out of trouble, hopefully.
Make sure everyone has their own copy, or have them work together in groups. And don’t forget the pencils/pens!
When the players find what they’re looking for, have someone take a picture of it as proof, then they can check it off their list.
The player/team who finds the most items wins.
A fun way to end the game is for everyone to decorate cookies, because who doesn’t love cookies?
