You’re never too old to have some frightful fun with Halloween party games. Even if you’re not used to games at any other holiday party, Halloween is the perfect time to put on a mask, let loose, and try to pin a bone on a skeleton. Or, you could try the classic Bobbing for Apples game that’s great for monsters of any age. If you’re having an adults-only game, change it to Bobbing for Apple-Flavored Vodka. Replace apples with nips of your favorite apple-flavored vodka. If you love DIY projects, make this Witch Pitch game that’s fun for kids and adults with a foam board cut into the shape of a witch’s hat, miniature plastic cauldrons, and candy corn. For those living in warmer climates, Pumpkin Bocce is a popular game to play outside on your lawn.

No Halloween party is complete without frightening food to keep your ghosts and ghouls happy. This is the perfect chance to show off your creative side by making frightening fruit or whole wheat witch fingers. The possibilities are endless when it comes to frightfully fine dining for your Halloween party. You can even sneak in some horrifyingly healthy snacks! For a truly unique and terrifying spin on the classic caramel apple, try this poison toffee apple instead. The shiny, black coating around these apples makes them dangerously appealing.
