A simple game with enduring appeal. Can’t beat ‘throw a ball/bean bag into a bucket’… especially a Halloween bucket!
Buy some orange buckets from B&Q (they are only a couple of quid and are a party regular for us. They work for similar games with different themes – you’ll get your money’s worth). Cut out pumpkin faces to stick onto the buckets in black card.
At the party:
Split the children into teams. Give the teams a number of balls, or bean bags and ask them to take turns to try and throw their balls/beanbags into the bucket. The team who gets them all in first wins.
We put all the older children together & put their bucket a lot further away than the one for the younger ones. We’ve done it both inside for a smaller party when the kids were younger and outside for more people and mayhem!
