 Party Games No# 1 Children to Tweens

Ghost in the Graveyard

Ghostly run after victims

Materials Needed

  • an old white sheet you can cut two eyes in for the ghost

How to Play

Designate a homebase from where everyone will begin from. The ghost who is dressed as your traditional ghost has to count from 1to 20. While she is counting, have the rest of the guests run and hide somewhere inside or outside of the house. If the ghost spots a hiding person, they can then run after that person and try and catch them. That person must make a dash back to homebase while yelling,"There's a ghost in the graveyard." If they are caught before they reach the homebase that person becomes the ghost and they quickly swap costumes.

Flashlight Tag

Materials Needed

  • each player should have a flashlight or torch

From the homebase, the tagger should count to 20, while the rest of the party guests run and hide. After he counts to 20 he will go and find the other guests using his flashlight/torch. He can find people with his torch rather than him tagging the actual person. Once all people have been found that is the end of the game.

You can play the game with him using the torch and tagging with his hand if you wish.

Freeze Tag

Select a playing area and set boundaries for the children. Not too large nor too small. You can set some small cones or bags or shoes to depict the playing area. The tagger should stand at the designated home-base while the other players spread themselves along the outside playing area lines. He or she on the word 'go' should try and tag the other players. Once he/she has tagged someone, they must freeze on the spot. The other players must try to 'save' the frozen person by doing a crazy dance infront of them saying 'You're unfrozen now." Then both can run off again. If the tagger catches both of them, then they are both frozen until a free person comes to save them.

The last player to be tagged can now be the tagger.
