Collect points by drawing pictures and guessing what scary words the pictures stand for.

 

Materials:

Plastic pumpkin (or other container), drawing board, slips of paper.

 

Directions:

1) Pictionary is a game played by two teams of people. One team sends a person up to a board to draw a word in picture then the team must guess what it is. This is a Halloween version of that game.

2) Before the party, make slips of paper with Halloween words such as Mummy, Tombstone, Bats, Vampires, Jack-O-Lantern, Spider, Witch, Black Cat, Candy Corn, etc. Place them in the container. Divide the partygoers into two teams. One player from the first team starts by picking a slip of paper from the bowl. Use a drawing board and pen to draw items related to the word, players cannot write the word. Their team tries to guess the word. Set a 2-minute time limit. The other team goes next. Keep rotating until everyone has a chance to draw.
