Tween Halloween Birthday Party

Tween Halloween Birthday Party

Every year I give Jordan (11) and Leah (12) one big birthday party together, since their birthdays are so close together. They are cousins but have been close from the very beginning. I have run out of games to play with them. Any ideas will be great appreciated.

Tween Halloween Birthday Party Response:

Hi Terri!

Since I don't know what games you have already played, I hope I won't reiterate them. I'm also not sure whether you are looking for active or quiet games.

One fun active game is an outdoor Halloween scavenger hunt. I have one on my Scavenger Hunt Fun site that would be perfect.

If your looking for more quiet indoor games a Ghost Story Mad Libs is a lot of fun. You could also pull some popular lines from Halloween movies and have your guests guess what movies they came from.

Teen Halloween Birthday Party Decorating Ideas
by: Anonymous

Ok. I have some decoration ideas for you.

One is that you can cover the lights with black construction paper to dim the lights (use safety precautions. Paper should not be close enough to potentially get hot and catch on fire).

Also, you can buy lots of spiderwebs and put them around your house.

Next, rip up garbage bags and hang them in doorways.

Finally, Here are some activity ideas:

-ghost in the graveyard
-mummy wrap
-scavenger hunt
-candy wars (same thing as m&m wars)
-corn maze

Hope this helps!

Halloween Scavenger Hunt
by: Anonymous

My b-day is on October 30 and on my birthday we are having a halloween theme scavenger hunt and what it's like is... you create a list of things you need to find like a brain or a pumpkin with a black dot on the bottom. You give every station a theme like one is a zombie and in that station you might do a fun or scary game. You keep making different stations with a theme for fun.

12th Halloween Birthday Party
by: Anonymous

Okay, I have a b-day close to Halloween and I'm pretty sure I have it planned out! Here's what I am thinking!

  • 1. An awesome Halloween themed cake that I will be making.
  • 2. A bunch of random games light ghost in the graveyard and other night games.
  • 3. Awesome snacks! I'm sure if you looked in your library, or a store you will find a book that has scary treats in it.
  • 4. Scary movies! Most of the scary movies are PG-13, so make sure everyone can watch it!
  • 5. Give your friends a treat and get an awesome Pinata!

I'm sure it will be wonderful!

Throwing a Party
by: Gr.7

Hi! I'm 12 and I'm throwing a party. I'm inviting my whole class which is all girls. I already have some games like Manhunt, Mission Impossible... stuff like that, but I really need some more ideas so I can impress my friends! Please help!

by: Lia

This is a game I learned from my friend recently. If you are playing this with little kids make sure you cover all sharp edges and such with padding or something.

So you split the room into two sides. Name them whatever you want or nothing at all... just A and B.

Then split the party into teams. Then with a cellphone or iTouch or something hide it at each end of the room. Then when someone yells go i.e. parent they turn out the lights and everyone tries to grab the iTouch or thingy from the other side. But once you are on the other side you are able to be tagged.

If you have older kids I recommend having a referee or someone to make sure people don't get rough when fighting about who grabbed what and blah blah blah. The best way to do this is when every one is on the other side trying to grab your thingy, go to there side when the person they left behind isn't looking, crawl and go and get the thing. Once you have it RUN back. DON'T crawl or else you run the risk of getting tagged easily. Also I need some ideas that aren't like kiddy, but not too scary.

Hello im 14(as so I am allowed a party with out mums), and I am 15 in about 3 weeks. I have been dwelling ideas for Halloween parties and would like to help (being part of the technological age i got these off the internet)......
1. I found pouring water in a glove tying it an freezing makes a good addition to the punch bowl.
2. oh this is kinda for people my age but... making some humus and placing it on a plate looks like poo, but if you want it to look better add a baby on the side!
3. ahh wick fingers can be made out of cocktail sausages with a bit of onion or yellow capsikon.

kk hope this helped( sorry about my spelling),

Halloween party game tween girls
by: Anonymous

My friend gave me this idea. Split the girls into teams of 3 or so girls. Give each group a roll of toilet paper and one piece of tape. Each team chooses a model and the other girls make an outfit for the model out of the toilet paper. Then the models show their outfits on the "catwalk" and the judges (parents) pick a winner. My friend said this was a big hit at her party for 12/13 year old girls.

Music really makes or breaks the party - if it is too quiet everyone will be VERY bored. Rent a karaoke machine and have a TON of fun Halloween music on hand - fun Halloween foods and music and you're good to go!

scavenger hunt
i personally love scavenger hunts their so fun

Pumpkin Easter Egg Hunt
this is like hunting for Easter eggs but with pumpkins and its really fun

for those of you who are looking for ideas, here is what im doing so far
-costume contest w/ different categories
*scariest,most original, etc.
-scavenger hunt from above *thanks for that one!!*
-infiltration.infiltration is a fun game for the night, which is when my party is... ok so you have home base, and 3 or more other bases. also some kind of token. if its dark, then have people on the bases get flash lights. then, your other guests try to get up to the bases. if you shine the light on them while they are moving, they have to go to home base and start over. if they get to touch the base, give them a token, which they bring back to home base and put it in their teams bucket. if there are no teams, have each person put their tokens in a pocket.

Tween is such a getting "cool" age, lol. This will be my third Halloween tween party with two girls. We had 33 girls show last year. The games they keep asking for are... Mummy wraps Lots of T.P. and teams of 3 or 4 girls and time the wrap to 1- 2 minutes. Use a leaf blower to move the mess to a pile for pick up. Body parts... Used a large black trash bag spread along a wood pallet, with white spray paint for body out line, cut slits for access to dishes of goo for girls to guess, did this in teams as well. Piñata are always a hit this eliminated gift bags after first year.
Straws to suck up mini marshmallows to move from one chair to another but while they move like Simon says to. I put an easy up with Halloween music for a dance area to help rid of excited energy, girls had a blast. Also had a guest appearance from Dark Vader (my husband) with photo ops, you would have thought the Jonas Brothers were there. I placed the girls in a big circle and let them place buttons to show their favorite costume among the guests and handed out trophies for winners. This one back fired but will consider at the end of the night? with hands behind their back, a small plate of whip cream with a small piece of chewing gum hidden, the first to find and blow a bubble wins. This made for some great pic?s. This is also fun with mini doughnuts with yarn tied along a clothes line.

I'm ten and having a Halloween party. Here are some games I like to play with my friends!:D
1. Ghost in the Graveyard!
An outside game. At least three players. So, there is one ghost, and the rest are people in a imaginary graveyard. The people pick a pose and the ghost will try to memorize them. Then, the people count for some seconds while the ghost hides somewhere around the house. When somebody spots the ghost, they yell "Ghost in the graveyard!" and run to there spot in the grass. They pose, but if the ghost holds the person's pose first, that person is the ghost.

My daughter is also in grade 7. She is very concerned about it being 'cool'. We are having my 9 year old daughter and her friends as well.
Have you come up with any game/movie ideas that would suit everyone?
GOOD LUCK!! And just remember.. it is already very cool that you are making the effort to have this party.
Have a BLAST!!
