- 2 shirts
- 2 pants
- 2 hats
- 2 large necklaces
- 2 pairs of glasses/sunglasses
- 2 pairs of shoes
There are two teams, and each team gets shirts, skirts, glasses, hats, jewelry, and shoes in a suitcase. The first person puts on everything and runs to the other side of the room and says, "Happy Birthday, [girl's name]!" and runs back and takes off everything. When she reaches her team she takes off the outfit as the girl next to her puts on the items she just removed. the next girl goes and does the same. The first team to finish is the winner.
Who has what it takes to make the Fear Squad? This goulish game is very similar to “Simon Says”. Instead of Simon be the leader, chose someone to be Cleo De Nile (the frightening and fabulous Fear Squad Captain). Then have Cleo start playing “Cleo Says” followed by a demonstration of a sweet dance move. The “fear leader finalists” will then have to copy what she says or they are out. The last fearleader standing becomes the captain! (Play as many times as you’d like.)
1. Ghoul Girl Gruel (Worm Pudding)
- 3.9 oz chocolate instant pudding
- 2 cups of cold milk
- 1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip
- 15 Oreo cookies, finely crushed (about 1-1/4 cups), divided
- worm-shaped gummies
This is a fun snack that can even be made by the party guests! If you make the pudding/cookie/whip mixture first you can have them add the additional cookie crumbs and worms! First, beat your pudding mix and milk in large bowl with whisk for 2 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Then, stir in your Cool Whip and 1/2 cup cookie crumbs. Spoon your mixture into plastic or styrofoam cups and refrigerate for about an hour. After the pudding mixture is done refrigerating add the remaining cookie crumbs and gummy worms. (Or have the guests add them as a fun little baking game)
Cleo De Nile Pizza Mummies
- english muffins
- pizza sauce
- black olives
- red or green pepper
- cheese sticks or slices
First, pre-heat the oven to 350º F. For each mummy, spread a tablespoon of pizza sauce onto half of an English muffin. Set olive slices in place for eyes and add round slices of green onion or bits of red or green pepper for pupils. Lay strips of cheese (either slices or cheese sticks) across the muffin for the mummy’s wrappings. Bake your little mummy-muffins for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.
