The Queen of Halloween (or at least Princess) friends want me to do their make-up, I even scared Captain America as a Mummy!

Halloween Greets

Halloween may be known more as the sugar & cavities holiday but forfamily and friends some celebrate by giving one a gift. I've always loved halloween and still do. My Mother even gives me a gift, (she knows its my fave holiday & that's above my birthday). Some of these gifts have been Halloween themed Novelty socks, or even a t-shirt one in particular all orange with a wicked Jack O'lantern face, another shirt says I kissed a vampire & I liked it (spoof off of I think a Katty Perry Song).

I had seen this cute rubber duck set it had a vampire, Frankenstein, Mummy & I think Werewolf themed Rubber Duckies with a story book, so when I jokingly showed it to her she takes it out of my hand & says that wil be your Halloween present! LOL so some of them are gag gifts of storts.

Here I have wrapped up a coffin full of Games and activities for you and family. I hope you enjoy

Bobbing for Apples was once one of the time honored halloween activities for any party,as it is harvest time, now I have not seen nor heard.

I love halloween, and more so I love doing anything halloween related. I wish when I was in school my teachers made things more fun or at least holiday related (if it was) tying the holiday in with our work. If you are a teacher, if you still plan to do your usual subjects on this day, there's a few math as well as reading & writing items coloring pages for art class & a few other things on here for the classroom as well as some fun pages for coloring, and so on. As for science Homemade Slime

10 Halloween Experiements * Witches' Brew

Wicked Games for all

If you don't want to used the boxed variety, make up your own! A traditional Halloween game is bobbing for apples. Know those party 'coolers' they put all the ices and beer in, & looks like a basket of sorts? Those are great! Fill up with cool -loke warm water & some apples, I'd say start at 1 - 2 dozen (depending on how many people are at the party.)

Place an Orange piece of paper over a dart board (or as one) & Appoint Points for hitting Eyes, Nose & Mouth! Nose would be the biggest amount say 100, Eyes 50 & Mouth 25.

About Halloween

Honestly they say Halloween is a 'funny' event. Quite frankly that's jsut so they don't scare the kiddies. Read any of my other lenses (especially Horrifically Everything Halloween for origins and history)

From Young to adult

Halloween is suppose to be fun for ANYONE

besides these you can also have a Bobbing for Apples

magic 8 ball as well

Bingo can be for family or party & the Bones game is like Jenga so that's for any age group the 3 others are more for the children, but I suppose as long as you are limber enough the Bone Bender (like twister) is for anyone

Halloween Bone staking game

STACK the BONES skeleton skull & crossbones STACKING
STACK the BONES skeleton skull & crossbones STACKING

Think of this as Jenga for Halloween or Day of the dead.

For those not familiar with the game you set them up where they are balanced, I know jenga was like 3-4 blocks in a row) You have to carefully take one out, and place it on the top without toppling the tower. The own who does loses.

Hand or Homemade

The best gifts are hand made & homemade. They show the love & have MUCH more thought to them than buying something

Make a Halloween Advent Calendar for your kids (or you or friend) Get small treats of candies and even maybe a ring or other things Halloween related for costumes etc. Even mini plush animals & figurines.
