Without games and activities that have a Halloween theme, a party wouldn’t be a party. All of these enjoyable activities are interesting, amusing, and fun for your guests to partake in.

  • Bobbing for Apples: It is a classic Halloween party game that everyone enjoys playing and watching at the same time. Participants attempt to snag floating apples with only their teeth while circling a sizable tub of water with their hands behind their backs. It is one of the fun outdoor Halloween party games for adults and kids alike.
  • Mummy Wrap Race: In teams of three or four, one team member is entirely wrapped in toilet paper or white streamers. Teams compete against one another to see who can wrap the package up first.
  • Pin the Wart on the Witch: It is a game similar to Pin the Tail on the Donkey, but instead of a tail, it has a huge poster of a witch’s face and a wart! The group had fun while wearing blindfolds.
  • Monster Mash:  It is a dancing competition where brave participants dressed as monsters perform their best impersonations. The most believable, wackiest, scariest, etc., get awards.
  • Pumpkin Carving Station: Grab as many medium-sized pumpkins as you can, give your guests a tonne of carving tools, and watch what they can come up with. Even better, you can rely on Picnic People’s Mobile Pumpkin Patch if you don’t want to organize this part of your evening! We’ll conduct the complete pumpkin carving event at your venue.

Now that you are well aware of the fun outdoor Halloween party ideas, you can easily make the arrangements for the celebrations. Hope, you and your family have a great time arranging everything.
