Click here for the free printable Halloween Charades – Costume Edition game.
What would a Halloween party be without fabulous costumes and fun games, right?! These fun Halloween Charades mix both costumes and games into one fun package.
This charades game is a little different than the usual charades game. Instead of just acting out charades, teams will break into smaller groups of 2 and will pick one of these fun charades ideas out of a pail. They will then have a short amount of time (say 1 – 2 minutes) to create a Halloween costume to help the rest of their team members guess the right answer.
For example, let’s say you have 2 teams of 5 people – Team A and Team B. Team A chooses 2 players from their team to pull a charade out of the pail. Let’s say these 2 people pull “Witch Riding a Broom” as the charade. They then grab their box of costume supplies (I’ll provide ideas for these supplies further down in this post) and will go into a separate room where they’ll have a specified amount of time to dress one of the 2 of them into a witch costume.
After the timer rings, these 2 people then come back into the playing area to reveal their costume. Team A (the remaining 3 players) would get 1 guess as to what the charade is simply based on the costume. If they get it right – they get 2 points (1 for guessing the right answer and a bonus for guessing it before the charade begins). If their guess is incorrect, then the player starts acting out the charade. The team members from Team A who have not seen the answer begin to guess. If they guess the right answer before the timer sounds – great! The team gets 1 point. If they don’t guess, Team B gets 1 guess at the right answer.
Your box of costume supplies could include items such as:
- wire hangers
- steamer paper in various colors
- feather boa
- pipe cleaners
- face paint
- stuffed animals
- duct tape
- anything else around the house that would come in handy while making a fun & quick costume
Do you have a costume planned for this year?
