How Do You Say Merry Christmas? A Fun Trivia Game on How the World Says Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad, Joyeux Noel all say the same thing but in different languages.

This Christmas Trivia Game is like taking a trip around the world and sharing the spirit of the holidays with everyone.

Merry Christmas Around The WorldWhen I was reviewing Merry Christmas Around the World, I was able to get about one third of the answers before I became stumped and had to start thinking which Merry Christmas went where. For me that is a sign of a good trivia game, when you get enough to get started and then are challenged to figure out what goes where.

I can tell you this, I did not score a 100% on Merry Christmas Around the World, but it was fun even though I got 4 answers wrong.

This Merry Christmas party game is good for Language Classes, Groups that do International Foreign Student Exchanges, Church Groups, Teen Sunday School Classes and anyone who enjoys a challenge. A nice little extra is that you can Personalize these game for your group, party or holiday event.

Plus this party game is so unique that it should be a challenge for your Christmas trivia experts and enjoyable as you score the results and pronounce the answers.

My only disappointment with Merry Christmas Around the World is that there should be a pronunciation key so when you reveal the answers you know how to pronounce them correctly.

Merry Christmas Around the World is a printable game you purchase and print out from your computer. You can purchase just this game or get the entire Christmas Game Collection that includes 70 other games the range from Winter, Christmas, Christian Christmas and New Years party games so you have fun activities for the entire winter break.

A Dinner Dare turns into a Fun New Christmas Game Idea for Kids

Recently at a networking event, the people at my table ask what I did and I said I run a Party Games web site. Then they said you think up party games? I said yes.

Then cam e the challenge can you come up with a party game using things on this table? Well I looked around and thought, hmm and then I said lets select three items and I will have a game for you by the next meeting.

The items from that were selected for this Party Game challenge were a:
1. Dinner Plate
2. Drinking Straw
3. Paper

Well a week went by and I kind of ignored my commitment, but then I saw a straw and when I was out to eat and started thinking how could I make a party game from a these three items.

I was a little stump, by then it hit me while watching a Christmas Holiday Special. Snowflakes.

Yes Snowflakes were the key to making a Christmas party game for kids.

And then the next challenge, how do you tie the straw and plate into a party game that is both fun and challenging. So I had to basically, make paper snowflakes, grab a straw and get a dinner plate and lay them out.

Once I did that it came to me, you must use the straw to get the snowflakes on the plate. This Christmas party game seemed simple and in my mind was easy. You just blow on the snowflakes, they fly up and land on the plate. Easy!

Then I took my idea and tested it, I blew on the snowflakes and they went under the rim of the plate. I used the straw to blow under the snowflake in order and the snowflake still didn't lift the snowflake.

Kid's Christmas party Game Ideas - Snowflakes on a Plate
Hmm, so far I had Christmas party game but it I couldn't make it work and therefore it wouldn't be any fun to play. Would this challenge end in a lame game or failure?

After some careful thought and a few test runs I hit upon how you could get the snowflake up and try to land it on the plate. Plus with snowflakes fluttering in many directions, it now became interesting and silly too. The game was coming together.

The next step was to create the rules and how to play instructions for this new Christmas party game and name it. The name was easy Snowflakes on a Plate, which is the objective of the game. The rules came easy to plus we came us with variations of the game based on whether you play as an individual or as teams.

The Game is now done so Check out the game details for Snowflakes on a Plate here and let me know what you think. We even added a video on this one too, it's a little silly but it was fun to make.

So now when I go to this month's networking meeting, I can show them the party game idea they helped me create, Snowflakes on a Plate. I hope they like it because I do.

Be sure to check out Party Game Ideas for over 50 other Christmas Party Games.

Make Your House Decorations the Life of the Holiday Party

You've seen videos of houses that set the Christmas lights to music and it looks amazing, but how can the average person set this up so that their house is part of the Christmas Party?

Well we stumbled across 2 Options
GE Wireless Light and Sounds of Christmas which is a synchronized light and sound system.

This systems comes with 44 Christmas tracks and plays in three modes light show, unison and lights steady on. Hmm as a bonus there are some Halloween tracks to so you can use it for another holiday.

I love the idea of the music and lights but I wish it could be connect to any song you want rather than holiday songs. The set up seems easy, but we haven't seen a review. The list price is $299, but Christmas Light system is currently (Today 12/4/12) on sale for under $170 and when I was on the site there was a promotional code to get shipping for $1.99. Please note I cannot guarantee pricing, discounts or quantity available.

The other outdoor Christmas Light musical system (can work indoors too) is Mr. Christmas Lights and Sounds of Christmas.

Mr. Christmas offers two different products. The Mr. Christmas Lights and Sounds of Christmas runs around $130 plus shipping and offers a main controller and six outlets which can each handle 1,200 lights and is not wireless. It offers 20 holiday songs from which to choose from.

This model is cheaper but you'll need to string all your lights to a central for this one which could be a bit of a headache. Amazon had 44 reviews with an average rating of 4 stars, so most users are happy with their purchase.

The Mr. Christmas Wireless Christmas Light system appears to be the GE system. I checked all the specs and they match. Amazon prices ranged from $170 - $180 plus shipping. The reviews for this model and disappointing compare to the $130 version, but most reviews are from 2 - 3 years ago, so things may have changes and it appears that replacement parts are now available where before it seemed to be an issue.

We like the idea of adding music to your Christmas lights and it sounds like it would be great during a party, but after reading the reviews consider whether going wireless is worth it as you might be able to save money and put on a holiday show for less.

Martha Stewart is Ruining Christmas Parties

I love Martha Stewart and her crafts, cooking, decoration tips and her show, but Martha Stewart is ruining Christmas parties!

There I said it and here is why.

There was a time when people would host a Holiday or Christmas party, invite guests, decorate house, make finger foods and offer holiday beverages. However with Martha Stewart it just seems that the bar is raised to perfection that anything else is a failure.

1. First Martha Stewart claim is "It's Easy"
Almost everything Martha does on the show is easy or simple. Well of course it is when, you a. have a staff to prep things for you and b. don't have a house full of kids that live in the house.

2. Nature is Free and at Your Door Step
In a recent centerpiece idea, it was noted that you just need to walk outside and collect branches about this big. Well I well out to find branches and I couldn't really find any, (I guess my neighbors yard workers are very good.) Overall it took me going to two parks, being barked at by several dogs and stepping into a big puddle just to 20 sticks that would work. Yes, it was free but no fun to collect.

3. Her Finished Product Always Look Amazing
Often Martha Stewart will take a the finished product and place it on a table that is set perfectly for this item. The plates, the napkin holders and accent pieces all work, but when I placed my craft project on my table it didn't look like the picture at all.

My BIGGEST problem is after I invest all the time and effort, which recently was able 4 hours for a centerpiece project, it killed my mood, spirit and made me feel like a failure.

After doing the project and hoping for a Martha Stewart moment, ta-da "It's Beautiful" my mood and attitude  sunk because I focused so much on making it that it carried over into making the food.

I just wasn't having fun making the food and socializing in the kitchen, then I had to remind myself that the centerpiece isn't the reason for the food or the joy of Holiday Party and that Martha Stewart doesn't rule my happiness and maybe, just maybe next time...

I need to purchase a centerpiece, except that I don't have to be perfect or ask the kids or guests to make something, so I can enjoy being the Happy Hostess at my party.

Happy Holidays

12 Ideas to Improve Your Holiday Party

Is your Holiday Party stuck on repeat?

We'll here are 12 ideas to Shake Up your Holiday Party!

1. Beverage Tasting Holiday Party
Skip the White Elephant Party and ask each guest to bring a unique beer or wine to the holiday party. Once most of the guests arrive, let each guest introduce why they selected their beer or wine, then label each beverage with a number. Then give each guest a slip of paper and ask them to write down their favorite beer or wine by the end of the night and place in the box. And that person wins - A Prize, Prestige or all the left over beer.

2. Charity Wish Party
Be social, be merry and be giving. Instead of spending money on a gift ask guests to do to things; a. Place the amount they would spend in the jar or container, b. Submit a charity they would like the money to be donated. This type of party is a great way to spread joy during the holiday season.

3. Dress as....
Fill in the Blank... Ask guest to Dress as Elves, Santa, Reindeer or their favorite Holiday Cartoon Character.

4. Feeling Lucky Christmas Party
Yes, this is the Scratch off Lotto themed party, where you ask guests to purchase a specific dollar amount of lottery scratch off tickets and each set is placed into the gift pile. Then randomly determine who gets to go first, scratch and see if they got lucky or not! Play until everyone has scratched away.

5. Random Acts of Kindness Party
Want to through people off their game and send guests off on scavenger type adventure. This works best if you live in town and don't have to drive. Ask everyone to have $10 for a New Holiday Tradition. Then once all the guests arrive, you divide them into teams of 3 - 6 people (or at least 3 - 5 teams and you'll want a smart phone for each team) and let them know that the $10 dollars they have must be used to record a random act of kindness for a stranger.

Estimate about 10 minutes per random act, an hour is usually enough time to complete the mission. However, teams cannot repeat random acts, only one member per team can do a type of act. Ask guests to take pictures and when they return share the stories.

6. Make is a Murder Mystery Holiday Party
Different and Fun it is sure to be fun for guests. We pulled together a few of our favorite Holiday Murder Mystery parties here.

7. Caroling Christmas Party
There was a time we all had to get on stage and sing Christmas carols and some of us even ventured around town Caroling. Well add bring it back with with caroling trivia, sing-a-longs, karaoke or what is the next line of this Christmas carol game.

8. Crazy Scarf Party
Tired of the Ugly Sweater ideas well change it up and ask guests to wear a Crazy Scarf or one of those hats that look like animals and objects instead.

9. Holiday Ornament Making Party or Exchange
Ask guests to bring a ornament for an exchange or create an ornament making table that includes all the basics. Here is a site with lots of Christmas Ornaments and here is a dough ornament recipe which is fun for kids.

10. Cookie Exchange Party
If you haven't had one it is well worth it as you get to sample and share great tasting cookies. Tips on how to get started. How to Host a Cookie Exchange Party.

11. PJ Holiday Party
This may not be right for the office crowd but is a fun Holiday twist this is the party to through. And to keep in the holiday spirit we encourage a reading of Twas the Night Before Christmas during your party.

12. Change up your Gift Exchange
Throw in a Group Hobby, Trivia or to Change things up we offer several gift exchange ideas that help you make your event unique and just right for your group.

The year change things up and try something different for you Holiday party, who knows you may start a wonderful tradition that you'll enjoy for many years to come.

Hidden Danger of The Doughnut Tree Game, What Parade's Pippa Middleton Article Didn't Tell You

I enjoy getting the Sunday paper. It's such a great way to start the day, relax with coffee, clip coupons or check out sales and plan out my week, but today the cover of Parade caught my eye and not in a good way. When they had a wonderful picture of Pippa Middleton and a child playing the game doughnuts on a string or as they call it "The Doughnut Tree". See pics below:

Just seeing the picture, reminded my of an email I received many years ago warning about the chocking hazard of the game "Doughnuts on a String" as children race to be the first person to finish a doughnut.

Email noted that the angle of the head and race to consume  doughnut as fast as possible is a dangerous combination that increases the risk of choking.

While I am not a fan of the Doughnut Tree game, I don't mind that they list how to play "The Doughnut Tree" game in the magazine.

The Problem I have with it is:
 They FAILED to Mention or even warn they this could be a CHOKING HAZARD!


While this game has been played at many parties over the years without any problems, it is one game that does have a history of causing choking. My concern is that many Parade readers will see this and think, "What a fun idea, let's do this game for Halloween," without being aware of the danger.

At the least Parade should have included a warning for the The Doughnut Tree like; "Not recommend for children under 5 years old as the game may present a choking hazard. Parent / Adult supervision required."

And since they didn't I just did.

After years of writing and creating party games for kids, it is never a good thing to mix young children like the one shown in the picture in a game situation where you may be encouraged to eat food at a strange angle as fast as he or she can to win a contest. Just eating a doughnut with your hands is hard enough, why make it a race that just increases the risk of choking.

At Party Game Ideas, we know party games can be a challenge and risks are involved however we try to place a warning or note concerns to the games so the user can decide whether the party game might be right for them.

While I do give Parade Magazine a Thumbs Up for the Pippa Middleton interview, they get a Thumbs Down for not properly informing their audience of the Real Dangers of the Doughnut Tree game.

If you are still looking for Halloween games for kids, teens and adults Party Game Ideas invites you to check out over 80 different Halloween game ideas for you sorted by age groups. So you can select just the right party game for your Halloween events.

Please have a Safe & Happy Halloween

Halloween Bowling - Be Creative for Halloween Fun

I don't know how I come up with these game ideas, but while replacing the paper towels it hit me.

Paper Towels would make excellent bowling pins for Pumpkin Bowling, while I recommend using play bowling pins or 2 liter soda bottles this idea comes in handy if you don't have those items. Plus, the paper towels will be used in the future so you are not wasting anything.

And to make sure you don't ruin the towels you can print out Halloween pumpkins faces from the internet and simply tape them on for game play. Then once the game is over just remove the Halloween faces and they are ready for cleaning up spills.

Yes, my ideas are sometimes strange like Jello Halloween Centerpieces or Candy Corn Lighting but it's fun and creative uses for things I already have around my house.

Here are the Pumpkin Bowling Photos - I thought you might like.

Don't Let Hurricane Sandy Ruin Your Halloween Party, Our Party Checklist Will Keep You on Track

It never hurts to be prepared, when hosting a Halloween or any event and based on the weather forecast for the Northeast it is time to have a Halloween Party Plan Checklist in case the weather turns frightful..

With Hurricane Sandy and a strong cold front, the Halloween weather forecast looks downright scary for Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and maybe even Halloween!

With that being noted, if you live in the Northeast and have outdoor Halloween events and activities planned, you need to be prepared with alternative Halloween games and party activities.

Halloween Party Bad Weather Checklist
1. If you need to move activities inside, is there room for everyone?
While not everyone can fit in 1 room, consider multiple areas and determine whether your garage or basement could work to handle overflow. Garages often provide space, but if you plan on using it, now is the time to plan a Saturday clean up.

If you still don't have enough space, then consider a location back up plan. Talk over options with friends and be ready to take action and announce changes so that everyone gets notified via text or phone call hours in advance of your event. While it is not recommended for children's parties, last minute changes tend to be ok for teenager Halloween parties.

2. Should You Change the Date of your Halloween Event?
If the weather turns really nasty where power outages are reported in your area and / or guests may be in danger due to flash floods then you need to consider cancelling or postponing moving your Halloween party. There is no reason to put guests in danger.

3. Prepare Decorations, Party Supplies & Food
Since weather can be hit or miss (ie if #HurricaneSandy heads out to the Atlantic rather than towards land) and storm paths can often change course, place and box decorations, party supplies and food so it is ready to go outside if the weather is good or inside if bad. Basically, you want everything together and organized so you can quickly set up indoors or outdoors if needed.

4. Clean!
Yep, when you thought everyone would be outside there was no concern over cleaning the house. However with a small army of zombies, witches and superheros in your house, it is time to get prepared and dust, vacuum and sweep. Also it is does rain, make sure you have one or more door mats ready to make the sure the water and mud from outside doesn't end up tracked all over your house.

5. Halloween Activities and Party Games, What Now?
If you were planning a Pumpkin Hunt, Halloween Scavenger Hunt or outdoor game, can you move it inside? And do you have the room to play it? You'll have to be creative to come up with teen Halloween games, but for younger kids you can often adapt outdoor Halloween games indoor or replace them with printable games  and simple challenges. Check out our Halloween games list by age to see what options might work. The key is not to panic but to review ideas today, so that you aren't caught off guard if bad weather hits.

Right now the forecast is for Hurricane Sandy and this cold front to cause problems from Sunday through Wednesday with wind, high surge and rain. Many people love Halloween and the parties that go with the holiday, but remember safety first. To all my friends in the Northeast stay dry, safe and warm.

Spooky Halloween House Decorations Pictures from Our Neighborhood

Halloween is a week away and last night I was able to head out and one of my communities favorite neighborhoods to see what they are doing for Halloween.

While not every house decorates fro Halloween there are a few that really do wonderful Halloween decorations. The only down side to walking and taking pictures at sunset is that you can only visit a few house to take good pictures while walking.

What I really enjoy about Halloween house decorations is that while you can admire large, elaborate displays , sometimes simple items with jsut a few key accents look wonderful in a yard or entryway.

These homes have created a wonderful Halloween displays in our neighborhood and I am grateful, because I can't put up Halloween decorations.

Jello Halloween Centerpiece Idea - Easy, Fun and Colorful

Hosting a Halloween Party and want an easy and colorful Halloween Centerpiece?

We thought about using jars, water, adding coloring and then placing the items inside, but several of the items floated to the top and we once the lid was on the mason jar you really couldn't see the eyeballs we placed inside.

However you could see them if you picked up the jar and turned it in your hands, then it looked pretty cool, but we wanted a Halloween Centerpiece that would look cool and not be touched or picked up by guests.

Then the idea hit me, what about Jello!

It's colorful, should hold things in place and allow light to seep through offering a cool glow.

So I headed to the store and picked up orange and green jello mixes.

Once home I gather up items I felt would create a spooky scene, while keeping it simple.
a. Tall glassware to give the centerpiece height
b. Plastic spider that sank in water
c. Squishy eyeballs leftover from a party game idea
d. Orange Jello

From there I set out to create 3 different scenes in each of the glasses, for this example. a. In glass 1, I placed a spider at the bottom and let the eyeballs bunch at the top and placed a spider on top them. b. Glass 2 - A spider and eyeball were at the bottom and more eyes further up near the top of the glass. c. Glass 3 included a spider at the bottom and several layers of eyeballs.

The trick it to let the Jello start to thicken so that the eyeball (which floats) would be held be the Jello and then add layer upon layer until you have completed your glass.

One idea that came to after I completed this process was that I could have used thread and a needle to go through several eyeballs and then tied the thread securely to stones or glass beads and place them at the bottom of the glass. Then position the spider like the string is its web. It might be an option worth trying.

Once complete, you have a cool look from all angle and an item that can be back-lite with flameless candles to create your Halloween Centerpiece. This Halloween picture shows each side of our glasses.

Once you have finished making the Jello centerpieces, store them in the refrigerator and remove about 30 minutes before guests arrive and let them sit on the counter.

As the Jello warms to room temperature, condensation will form on the glass. After about 30 minutes, you should be safe to wipe off the condensation and then wait another 2 - 3 minutes to make you got it all. Once the condensation is gone you are ready to place your Halloween Centerpiece and add your accent lights or flameless candles. (I like using them because they are safe and the glow is soft.)

Add in Halloween decorations and tableware to create your own unique Jello Halloween Centerpiece!

Nightmare Halloween Costume Adventure - The Endless Search for Elusive Costumes

It all started innocently enough.

At 1:25 pm - I asked my adult son what do you want to be for Halloween? The reply seemed simple, an Assassin's Creed costume or this "Robin Hood" costume that looks like an assassin.

I said great, I will swing by the one of the Halloween stores and pick it up.

Then Came More Information & Rules:
1. There are several Assassin's Creed costumes so this one and if not this then Robin Hood
2. Make sure we can return it if it doesn't fit
3. Look for it in the video game or renaissance section

Ok, got it.
Normally I would insist they come along but d he would soon have to head into work. It seemed like an easy task and I was up for this pretty standard challenge.

By 1:50 pm - I gathered up Halloween store coupons and headed out.

First Stop: Party City Store #1 - Time: 2:10 pm
- No Assassin's Creed, but Robin Hood costume in the right size.
- Decision: Since this was the 1st store, I can check the 2 other stores and return if needed. No Purchase Made

Second Stop: Spirit Halloween - Time 2:35 pm
- Poorly Organized, but No Assassin's Creed and No Robin Hood

Third Stop: Halloween City - Time 3: 25 pm
- Chaotic Arrangement, but no Assassin's Creed but found 1 Robin Hood in the correct size
- Decision: I had a Coupon for Party City $10 off and the line was over 10 people long. I will head back to Party City, save $10 and be done.

Fourth Stop: Party City Store #1 - Time 3:55 pm
- Head to the costumes, get a salesperson to assist me, walk over to the costume to place the order and the LG Costume Size Sticker has been removed! They Sold It since I was last in the store.
- Decision: Return to Halloween City and purchase the costume. Yes, but I want to save $10. So I use my phone to check the web site and yes there is a $10 coupon but I need to print it. Ok, running home and printing it will take 10 minutes. Let's do it.

Fifth Stop: Halloween City - Time 4: 15 pm
- I return to Halloween City with coupon in hand and I head right to where the Robin Hood costume was and... it's not there. I look around and I don't see it. I ask the attendant at the dressing room if anyone tried it on and they say no. I want to kick myself, I hand it in my hands but for $10 I didn't take action. I leave the store.

Now Frustrated and Angry, I am upset that my thriftiness cost me a costume, but now I am more determined than ever to find the requested costume.

Now I call another Party City store and Success they have the Robin Hood costume in the Size I want and it is placed on hold. I have the Halloween Costume Success is Mine!

Sixth Stop: Party City Store #2 Time: 4:50 pm
- I arrive at Party City and head to the costume pick up area and they tell me that my costume is at the front of the store at check out. perfect.
- I wait in line patiently and finally after it's my turn. I tell them my name and the costume. The clerk checks the items set aside for customers and returns with a Woman's Sexy Robin costume!
- I said that this is not the right costume they said they were holding Robin Hood for me. She looked around and with a take it or leave it look said "This is all we have for you. You can check in the back for Robin Hood." Inside I am fuming, outside I just said ok and headed to the back.
- I check and No Assassin's Creed or Lg Robin Hood

Time 5:20 I do a Google Maps Search and Find 2 Halloween Stores within 5 miles and call the 1st temporary Halloween Store and ask if they have either of the costumes I am looking for the answer. The answer "We may have them." I asked her what that meant and she said "We have a lot of costumes and we may have those, there isn't a way for me to check. So it's better if you just come to the store."

Well Thanks for nothing. After that heartfelt conversation, I decided I would visit Halloween Megastore. It sounded big and was 3 miles away, so off I went.

Seventh Stop: Halloween Megastore - Time 5:30 pm
- Success I found 4 Assassin's Creed costumes! Who cares about Robin Hood now. Victory will be mine.
- After reviewing them, the sizes looked hit or miss and the price was $30 more than online.
- However, I was ready to purchase a $150 costume when I asked "What is the Return Policy?"
- If you buy it you can exchange it or get store credit.
- The fear of purchasing the wrong size and then returning tomorrow to discover they sold out of the other sizes, stopped me in my tracks and I had to walk away with nothing.

Eighth Stop: Home 6:15 pm
- Finally at home, I was frustrated, anger and a little bitter than I had accomplished nothing all afternoon and I became so focused on finding this costume, I didn't even run my own errand!

After calming down and doing some research online I found what I thought was the costume and but need the one person who was at work to confirm it because I had viewed to many costumes to remember which was the preferred design. In the end, I called it a night and went to bed early.

This Morning
Over breakfast, I reviewed may day and how a favor turned into a nightmarish quest that remained unfilled. He pulled up the Assassin's Creed costumes online and I noted the one I almost bought for $150 and his response was "I didn't want that one, I want this one."

For the first time since I left the house yesterday, I felt a little sigh of relief. I didn't spend $150 on a costume he didn't want (even though he would pay for it).

And it got better!
We found the costume he wanted, it was $130 and 35% Off. We added 2 day shipping and it was still under $95!

Here is what I learned:
1. If you find the costume and can return it. Buy It!
- If you find something better return it the same day.
2. Ask they accept competitor's coupons or will allow you to use the web site coupon via your phone?
- It never hurts to ask!
3. If you know what you want, shop online first. Use codes and if needed pay extra to get your costume on time.
- FYI - Always Confirm (Click On) Shipping before finalizing the sale. I learned the hard way today and had to cancel an order when the default shipping was everyday standard and the Free promo would have it to my house by Friday. Just to be safe I upgraded to 2 day.

While My Halloween Costume Adventure Started as a Nightmare, it ended up a success story. 
1. I didn't buy the wrong costume and lose $150
2. We ended up saving $55 off the store price.

I hope you don't have such a daunting tail to tell while looking for Halloween costumes and recommend checking out Buy Costumes (banner below) a good store where we found what we wanted.

Zombie Old Halloween Costumes for a New Walking Dead Look

Struggling to come up with a new Halloween costumes this year?

Well we have an idea Zombify Old Halloween Costumes! Turn that old costume into new costume by making it a zombie.

The Walking Dead is huge and let's face it according to the Walking Dead people who were once alive are now most likely dead. So you can take just about any costume you never plan to wear again and zombify it. Fireman, Witch, Officer, Prisoner, Monk, Clowns and more.

To turn an old Halloween costumes into a zombie costume you should do the following:
a. Add rips and cuts to the clothing (Zombies would  have done this to you.)
b. You'll need scratches, scars, wound marks and zombie makeup for your face
c. Dirty up the costume with blood (red dye) and fray the sleeves and pant legs.

Get more ideas by reviewing zombie costumes.

Here are a few photo examples where they added a zombie face to the costume:


Lady Gaga as a Zombie

We like Lady Gaga but are you going to wear this again? But you can take any celebrity's costume and turn it into a zombie. Any just check your closets and see you is hiding in there and then take action.









Next Zombie Captain America
Yes we all know that Captain America should be able to survive a zombie attack but it only takes one bite or scratch to become infected! And if just one Superhero got bit, then it might be over for the entire group. Now we did see some Zombie Robin and Batman costumes that were produced for Halloween and we even saw a Zombie Storm Troopers (How did zombies get to outer space?) so pretty much the sky is the limit.



We found these recycled zombie costumes at Zomboween.com and thought that it was a good idea. We asked them if we could reuse some of the images and they said yes as long as linked back to their web page where the have a few other recycled zombie Halloween costume ideas.

Dollar Store Halloween Party Game Challenge Completed!

The Challenge: Go to the Dollar Store and Target and find mostly $1 items that can be turned into party games for Halloween.

While we had high expectations, we also had a few rules.
1. We could not purchase a ready to go Halloween Party Game
2. Try to keep the total out of pocket expense for any one game from $1 to $10

We ended up purchasing 5 Halloween items from which to create our party games.
1. Reflective Halloween Stickers
2. Gross Gummy Body Parts
3. Colorful Halloween Containers
4. Vampire Teeth
5. Squishy Eyeballs

The result is the Dollar Store Halloween Party Game Challenge below:


Here is what the learned from our challenge:
1. Once you have an party game idea, it doesn't always work. We really thought the game Skeleton Eyeball Toss, where you throw the eyeball at the skeleton's head, would work. However after we could get them off our finger without really working at it and one ended stuck to the ceiling, we knew our game idea could be a disaster. Plus I feared pets would try to eat the eyeballs and that would be a disaster. We still like the idea of Pin the Eye on the Skeleton, but just not with squishy eyeballs. Finally, as a result we changed the eyeball game to an eyeball drop.

2. DIY games can take time. Creating a graveyard target game takes time and reflecting on cutting through cardboard and the additional work, our sample took over an hour. One thought after we completed this was to consider using a piece of wood and hole saw drill bit to cut the holes if this is an option. Then you could add length to the game by lining up another board, so there is distance between the holes and rolling the ping pong ball becomes a challenge. Plus once you create a master board you can use it again for rolling or tossing games. However this would also break the $10 rule.

3. Crafting items and ping pong balls are useful accessories. Let's face it, if you already have paper, markers and a glue gun, you'll have more options than if you need to buy them.

4. Sometimes a Ready to Go Halloween Party Game will cost less! Yes, I said it. If you can pick up a ready to play out of the box game or a printable Halloween game that takes less than 15 minutes to set up, it could be worth it if you don't have the time. The trip to the store, purchase, planning and extras took a few hours, while it was fun consider whether you have 2 hours to work on a diy Halloween party game or if it is easier to spend $5 - $20 for something ready to play.

Overall we really enjoyed the Dollar Store Halloween Challenge and hope you enjoyed coming along for the experience. Several of these games will be making their way onto the Party Game Ideas web site in the Halloween Party Games section.

Here are links to party games and pages notes in the Dollar Store Challenge video:

Quick Halloween Table Lighting Idea that is Easy and Fits any Halloween Party

You want a spooky Halloween table for your guests and to set and eerie mood, but how?

Well we came up with a quick solution to use things that most family's already have: Glasses, Candy Corn and Flameless Candles 

Put them together and you add an eerie glow to your Halloween table or add simple Halloween accents, safely to any location.

And we say SAFELY because fake spider webs, gauze and many Halloween costumes with torn fabric pose a risk of catching fire if you use real candles, so for the safety of kids, pets and all your guests flameless candles are a must for Halloween accent lightning.


This Halloween Lighting Idea is simple
:
1. Get glasses or glassware - You can use any glassware but we suggest you keep it simple.
2. Add candy corn as a base to add color
3.Place flameless candles level near the top
4. Fill in the space between the candle and the glass with candy corn


This is perfect for Halloween buffets at the office, the Halloween party snack table and a great way to accent Halloween decorations and displays. Here are some sample photos and video we got using this lighting.

Zombie Gnome

Play around with lighting to see what works best

A Jointed Skeleton makes for a great backdrop in low lighting


































This is also a great way to stage photos that you can use on your Facebook, Pinterest and other social media pages. We did a short video on Halloween lighting, it is a little dark but you get the idea.

If you are going to host a Candy Corn Guessing Contest this Halloween, then check out our web page so you can do something different and more creative. (Please note, that since I just added the page, it seems odd to re-state everything.) So here is one of our photos from the page.

Test Their Zombie Knowledge with this Printable Zombie Party Game

Between the Walking Dead, Zombie Runs and growing interest in Zombie everything, it's no surprise that Zombie Trivia would become a popular idea for Halloween parties in the office and among friends.

If you are a huge fan of The Walking Dead you can create a Zombie Trivia just from the show, however if you have friends who think the Walking Dead might be a band then creating a Walking Dead trivia game might leave them feeling a bit, left out in the cold.

Well good news there is no reason to lose and arm or leg thinking up Zombie Trivia, in fact the easiest way to get this work done is to use your computer, iPad or smartphone and printer and have all the work done for. Yes, it will cost a few bucks but unless you have lots of free time to do the work it is worth it.



This Zombie Trivia Game challenges the living to answer questions about the living dead movies! Now you tell your Zombie infected friends to show there true colors and find out whether they will survive the Zombie Apocalypse as a Zombie Hunter or be a feast for the zombies.

Zombie Mania
Takes about 5 - 8 minutes to play
Perfect for Adults & Zombie Movie Buffs
Takes minutes to purchase and play

Clean Bachelorette Party? This Game is a Little Messy, But Entertaining Too!

So you want a fun Bachelorette party but also want it to be clean?

Well how can you live on the edge and still make the bride blush, consider playing Decorate the Private Parts  game.

This game is relatively safe but does have a dark side twist and it works well for Bachelorette parties held at someones home.

All you need to have guests do is decorate a cake.
That's it. Easy, fun and a little messy!

Penis Cupcake Molds

However, it's not your ordinary cake, it's a cake of a man's private parts. The best part about this is that you real can have your cake and eat it too.

One great thing about this Bachelorette party game is that you can adapt it to make these little or big guys, happy little guys or dirty devils. I think it would be fun to have a Silly Willy decorating contest where the Silliest Willy wins, but you can choose your own theme.

One fun idea for bachelorette's that are nervous about her Bachelorette Party being to dirty, is to try to keep this bachelorette party activity a secret and joke around with her that something big is in store for her.

Erotic Penis Cake Pan

Then just when she think's she is going to be exposed to something she doesn't want to see and she turns her head to look away, turn on some stripper dance music like Janet Jackson's Nasty Boys and say "Bring Out the Penises for the Bachelorette to Judge!" Most likely she'll be mortified and turn bright red, but when she sees that these are cakes or cupcakes, hopefully her fear will turn to laughter.

Once she sees these decorated private parts she can then pick out her favorite and the person who decorated that cake wins a prize.

Note you can have individuals decorate cupcakes or groups of two or three work on a big cake, either way this Bachelorette game is sure to be very entertaining for everyone involved.

Get more details on Decorate the Man's Private Parts and other Bachelorette Party Games.
