Updated on January 20, 2015

Let all the walking dead gather at a zombie party!

Birthday, Halloween or just a random party, zombie theme is always fun to have! Read through some ideas on walking dead party food, party games, decorations, props, party favors and party supplies.

You will find fun ideas and tutorials for cake and cupcake making, horrific finger foods, how to dress properly for this party and much, much more both for kids and adults.

I like zombies a lot! There's always time for a good zombie movie or a board game (and more and more of them are emerging). I love the fact we already got and will be having more zombie movies (even one with Brad Pitt) hitting the cinemas this year.

Party Games

Zombie party games for kids and adults

Fun for everyone

Pin the limb on the zombieA variation of pin the tail on the donkey. Kids (or adults) are blindfolded and try their best to pin the body part to the body as accurately as possible.Do the walking dead danceSlow zombie like dancing. Be sure to not break a limb.

Tag, you are a zombieOne person is named a zombie. The others are humans. Zombie needs to chase the humans (if the game is played outdoors he can run, if it's played indoors they can do the slow zombie walk) and when he or she touches the human that human too becomes a walking dead. Now we have two zombies hunting humans, everyone they touch becomes a zombie and joins them with the human hunt. The last human standing is the winner.

Shoot the zombiesHave some cardboard zombie cutouts and have the guests shoot them with balls, water balloons or anything else until they knock them out.

Party Decorations and Props

Brain Toss - Who can throw it further?

A fun brain tossing game! You can either compete who throws the brains the furthest, who hits the target, or just pass it around and try not to drop it.

Brain Latex Prop

      Very creative ideas, we are actually throwing a zombie party for my son in a few weeks and one of the ideas that we came up with, is instead of doing a zombie game, we are going to use the AMC walking dead app. to allow everyone to dead themselves and we bought photo paper and everyone will get a chance to sit down and get one made and take it home in a frame that we also purchased, Sounded super fun to me.
