My children love dressing up for Halloween and giving treats to monsters, ghosts and scary creatures who knock on our door on 31 October every year. Last year, after they pleaded for ages and ages, I gave in and took them trick or treating in our neighbourhood. We all really enjoyed it, got to chat with neighbours we had never met before and we had a sweet feast that night.
The children were desperate to reiterate the experience this year, but we are away this week and on Halloween, we will be in a remote lodge in the middle of the Scottish countryside, so we did not even pack costumes.
What I packed, though, were a couple of games we received on Friday. As soon as they spotted them after school, the children wanted to have a go. They needed quite a few batteries so I was glad I had just stocked up. As they were waiting for me to read instructions and put in the batteries, Beanie and Crevette started having fun.
We turned off the lights and tried Ghost Hunt Evolution first. The aim of the game is to shoot the ghosts and bats Billy Bones projects, using a laser gun. Brilliant!
Creepy Hand is a game of ‘truth and dare’ with a twist.
Players are in a circle and the creepy hand moves around the table until it points at its victim. We loved playing it!
