Inside: The most thrilling teenage Halloween activities
With Halloween around the corner, it is time to start planning a party. What is the most important part of a Halloween party(besides the candy)? The activities!
If your kids have now blossomed into sassy new teenagers you may be wondering what to do for them to still have fun…well, I have just the thing for you!
What do teenagers like to do for their Halloween activities? Essentially the same things they liked to do as kids. They are teens, not aliens.
They still enjoy the things they liked as kids but now they are able to be challenged a little more.
So I created an epic list of the best teenage Halloween activities that will help to ensure that your Halloween is just as fun as it was when they were kids. Let’s get into it!
Simple Halloween Activities
For this first list, I thought we would keep it simple. So read on to get some inspiration for your up-and-coming Halloween shindig. There are so many awesome ideas to choose from.
1. Ghost stack – A ghost stack is essentially where you take clear plastic cups and draw eyes on them. You then stack them up and see who can get a tower of 6 up and down first.
2. Blind Mystery – Tye a blindfold around the teen’s eyes so they cant see. In front of them will be different sensory bowls filled with creepy things like organs(cooked cold sausages) and eyeballs(peeled grapes).
3. Spider Race – Take a tiny plastic spider and give the teens a straw. Line up on one else of a table and then see who can get the spider to the other end by simply blowing.
4. Truth or Scare – Truth or Scare is a play on the classic game of truth or dare. The difference is if they choose scare they have to do something spooky like watching a scary video.
5. Apple Dunk – This is a classic Halloween game. Fill a big tub with water and apples and see who can pick one up by only using their mouth. Hopefully, no face paint is involved.
6. Werewolf n Villager – This game is actually played all year round. The gist of it is that half of the people playing are werewolves and the other half are villagers. When someone screams the villagers close their eyes and the werewolves have at them. They have to try and guess who killed them when they open their eyes again.
7. Movie Marathon – Try your hand at a scary movie marathon. Watch the classics like Chucky, Nightmare on Elm Street, and many others.
8. Candy Swap – This is another classic and time-honored tradition among kids and teens. After a long night of gathering the goods, everyone dumps theirs out and trades to get their favorites.
9. Make Popcorn Balls – These are surprisingly easy and fun to make!
10. Halloween Musical Chairs – Like regular musical chairs but the only difference is you use Halloween music!
11. Scare Challenge – Have one person at the beginning of the night be ‘it’ and tasked with scaring everyone for the rest of the night.
12. Squid Games – Squid games were scary, you simply cannot tell me otherwise. So have your own version of red light green light where the losers get sprayed with a squirt gun.

45. Mummy Maker – Set the timer for 1 minute and see who can make the fasted mummy out of toilet paper.
46. Pumpkin Bowling – Get yourself some tall squash and line them up like bowling pins, then you use a small round one to let it rip. See how many you can get down. Do I see a strike in your future?
47. Eyeballs and Organs – Cook some spaghetti and get yourself some plastic eyeballs. Mix the eyes all in the spaghetti and blindfold your contestants. The person who gets the most eyes out after a minute wins.
48. Poke a Pumpkin Cups – Put sweet treats in half of the plastic cups, and tricks in the other half. Then you cover them with tissue paper and have your guests poke in there to get tricked or a treat.
49. Pumpkin Decorating – How could I not include this one? It’s perhaps the most important Halloween activity of all.
50. Throw a Costume Contest – Make sure you include different categories like ‘best scary costume’ and ‘best cute costume’ that way more people can win,
51. Zombie Walk Contest – Have everyone line up and see who can do the best impression of a zombie. The most convincing undead is the winner!
52. Fear Factor – This is essentially the TV show but makes it PG-13. No need to scare the teens. You can put things like “stick your fingers in a cup of worms” and so on and so forth. Lots of fun!
53. Pumpkin Checkers – For this, you will need to wither a table set up with the checkerboard or a comedically large check board, and mini pumpkins. The pumpkins act as the checkers for this cute twist on a classic game.
So…are you pumped for Halloween? I know that I am. There are so many other awesome ways to make sure that your teens have a good Halloween, this is just a start!
