Toss a Chocolate Candy in a Halloween Bucket - Contd.

Subsequently, hand out 5 or 10 chocolate candies to every single contestant. Remember to have those candies identical, alike and easy to throw. You can use the ones that come for Halloween sale loaded with goodies.

Halloween games for Kid’s Party

Hold a Rope Halloween Game

The kids and the adults can have a gala time with these simple Halloween games for a party. Select 2 kids or adults dressed in a spooky Halloween costume to hold a rope steadily at a height of 4 to 8 feet. Each of these kids holds the end of the rope and keeps it straight so that people can pass underneath the rope. The higher the better, it looks like a bridge which the participants have to cross under the rope without letting their heads touch the rope.

Start the Halloween spooky music, while the music is on; each of the participant is required to go under the rope dancing to the music without letting his head touch the rope. The player whose head touches the rope is out. Next round, lower the rope by 10 to 20 cms and ask all the participants to go under the rope one by one.

The candy tossing and the rope ducking appear like fun, safe ways to organize Halloween and Halloween Eve parties for children, juveniles and adults.

Going under a progressively lowered rope makes me think of the Caribbean limbo dance that involves going from standing to almost crawling under a progressively lowered bar. But the doer manages the limbo dance to limbo music.

Which would you be likelier to have at a Halloween or a Halloween Eve party: dancing under a bar or rope, ducking a rope or tossing candy? They all would be great ways to combine non-scary fun with non-scary exercise ;-D!
