One of the games we played was mummy wrap. The kids loved it. You pair the
group off. Then, one person is the mummy-to-be while the other person wraps
them in toilet paper.
The “guess what this is” game someone mentioned was a hit with the kids.
For decorations we had tin can holders for candles and replaced all outside
lights with black light bulbs. I used Vienna sausage cans painted black
screwed to painted dowel rods inserted in the ground to resemble torches. We
water in soup and veggie cans then froze them. After freezing, punch a pattern
in them using a hammer and nail. Unfreeze, paint and hang from trees or place
on table with tea or votive candles in them. If you hang them be careful.
Use wire not string to hang them.
I served grave yard cake, spider hot dogs, popcorn hands and punch with
The grave yard cake was made with chocolate cake topped with chocolate
frosting. Crumble up some Oreo cookies and spread on top to look like dirt.
worms and Brach’s cream pumpkins. When my sister made it she used gramcrackers
to resemble tombstones. She used icing to write RIP.
To make spider hot dogs, think of the hot-dog as divided into three sections.
Leave the middle section uncut. Slice each end in half from the middle
section to the end. Then rotate it and cut in half again. When finished, the
dog should have an uncut middle with each end cut into fourths. When these
cook, the ends curl up creating a spider like effect. The kids got a kick out
To make popcorn hands I used clear plastic food handler gloves. I filled the
tip of each finger with corn candy to resemble fingernails then added the
popcorn. You can add spider or bat rings to one of the fingers.
I think someone else already mentioned how to make the frozen hand punch.
Another idea would be to use a cauldron and some dry ice for a bubbling brew
