I feel like Halloween gives everybody an awesome opportunity to be creative: costumes, decorations, weird food concoctions, you name it. And if you’re planning a Halloween party this year, then you’ve come to the right place! Earlier this week, I shared a classy Halloween party invitation design, and today I’ve got some fun games that you and your party guests are sure to have a hauntingly good time playing! Check out these printable Halloween Bingo cards and follow this tutorial for a simple DIY game called “Grab the Ghost.”

Bingo is a classic for any holiday! It’s perfect for larger groups and varying ages, and these black, white, and gold Bingo cards go perfectly with the Halloween party invitation I shared earlier this week.

Grab the Ghost is a kind of a family classic for me. I remember my mom teaching us how to play it when I was little, and now, we’ve kept the tradition going each year when I throw a halloween party for my little siblings (I’m the oldest of 10, so I still have siblings in high school, junior high, elementary, and even one who is only 8 and a half months older than my little guy—pretty crazy, right?).Grab the Ghost is fun for a wide variety of ages, and SUPER easy to put together.

What you Need to Make the Ghosts

  • Paper towels
  • A Permanent Marker
  • Yarn
  • Scissors

How to Make the Ghosts

1. Ball up a small sheet of paper towel.

2. Place the ball in the center of another paper towel, and wrap it around, leaving the ends loose to make the “body” of the ghost.

3. Tie one end of the yarn around the paper towel, just below the ball—separating the “head” from the “body.”

4. Draw a spooky ghost face. (I like to add eyelashes to a few to make girl ghosts)

What you Need to Play the Game

  • A funnel, bowl, or large cup
  • A die
  • Some sort of tokens (coins, checkers, paperclips, candy, etc.)

How to Play

At the start of the game, each player is given 5-10 tokens. One player is chosen to be the goblin. The other players sit in a circle, lay their ghosts in the center, and hold on to the yarn attached to their ghost. The goblin holds the funnel/bowl, upside down, at least 2 feet above the ghosts.

The goblin chooses two numbers on a die, announces them to the group, then rolls. If either of the chosen numbers appears, the players try to pull their ghosts out of the circle before the goblin can slam the funnel down over them (if most of the players are older, you can change the two numbers each round, but if there are younger players in the group, I suggest selecting the same two numbers to use throughout the game). If a player is caught, he must give the goblin a token. If the chosen numbers do not appear, but the players panic and yank their ghosts out of the circle anyway, they have pay a token to the goblin. If the goblin touches any ghost when he/she didn’t actually roll the number then they must shell out a token to each player. After three rolls of the die, the next player takes over as goblin. Play is over when one player runs out of tokens. The player with the most tokens wins.
