Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #1: Visit a large library and check out old maps selections (you’ll probably have to go to their Reference Section.) These maps can be photocopied there, then blown up onto very large sheets of paper (2’ x 3’) at your local copy center. When you blow them up from a smaller original, they might get a little ‘grainy’ – which might even improve its look (depending on your own preference.) These look FANTASTIC and can be hung just about anywhere. Look for some maps of Transylvania (modern day Romania) – they look great hanging on your walls!

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #2: Of course, it might go without saying to utilize candles and open fires to illuminate your event. If lighting is an issue, try using very low wattage bulbs instead.

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #3: Flowers are full of life and look great as centerpieces at parties…but not vampire parties. Instead, try using DEAD flowers, instead. These are easy to procure (I can do it without even trying…just see my home…) If this isn’t quite the look you’re looking for, visit your local dollar store and pick up some fake roses. Poke the stems through some aluminum foil or cardstock all the way up to the bud. Now, spray paint them black (flat black paint works best). These also make for nice, macabre floral centerpieces.

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #4: Hang a poster of all the different ways to protect yourself from a vampire. Ways to include are: garlic, holy water, juniper berries, holly, wolfbane and wooden stakes, strings tied in knots (it was believed that vampires are compulsive creatures and can’t resist stopping what they are doing to obsess over untying a knot). In the same way, mustard seeds were carried and sprinkled around so that should a vampire come, they’d compulsively feel the need to pick them all up.

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #5: Visit your local Wal-Mart or other discount store and check out their light bulb selection (hardware stores are also a great place if you can’t find the colors you need…it’s just that hardware stores, I’ve found, sometimes charge a little more for some reason…) A red lightbulb in the right lamp can really add a lot of ambience to your party where there might otherwise be very few decorations. Play around with it and see what you come up with. Purple is another color to experiment with. For a couple of dollars you can change the feel to an entire room!

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #6: Using a stencil and black construction paper, cut out numerous sillouettes of bats to hang on the walls and from the ceiling. This is a great activity for pulling in the children to help out.

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #7: For a more Transylvanian village feel, do your best to get your hands on some scrap wood (the wood can be weathered or new, depending on your preference or what is available.) Often times we can look on the sides of our own houses to find a few scraps left over from past projects. This wood is perfect for creating great looking signs. You can either nail a few together or let them stand alone (depending on their sizes and your own uses). With black acrylic paint (or a wide, black, permanent marker) write the names of different structures in town (i.e. blacksmith, church, bakers, livery stable, stagecoach, etc.) By placing these strategically around your event, you can easily create a small Transylvanian village (with the help of other mentioned decorations, as well). With these signs posted in the appropriate places, you can give easy directions as to the exact locations for each of the activities. Simple maps can also be created using the names on the signs. These signs can either be mounted into the ground, nailed to trees, or hung with rope to name only a few options. If you can’t get your hands on any wood, cardboard from brown boxes would also work. Of course, there is also the famous and foreboding “I’d turn back if I were you…”

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #8: Either days before the party or during the party itself (sometime early on) collect from different people their all-time worst nightmare - one that perhaps plagued them for a long time. Then, allow your guests to figure out who had which nightmare. You see, it’s known that vampires haunt dreams of its victims just before they are attacked…

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #9: For a darker, more macabre activity (which works best with groups of guests who know each other), have each guests draw another party guest’s name out of a hat to write a eulogy for (as they are all the undead…) Now, at first you might think that this would be a real ‘downer’ of an activity…however, what you’ll find instead is that it will be very uplifting as each guest thinks of kind words to say in ‘rememberance’ of the other party guest. Make sure to limit the eulogy to one minute (or less) depending on the number of guests present.

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #10: For larger groups, award a prize for the reddest hair in the room (as red heads were historically thought of as the most likely candidates to turn into a vampire after they die.)

Vampire Theme Party Games And Activities #11: If you are going for more of a ‘vampire hunters’ feel, have your guests make their own wooden cross stakes. From your local hardware store, purchase the needed number of small fence stakes (usually about 1.5 feet long), unpainted. Additionally, while you are there, pick up some rough, course (but strong) rope twine. Each guest will need two pieces of the fence wood to lay in a cross fashion and several feet of the twine to wrap around the joint to secure it. It will look old and rustic…and perfect protection in Transylvania!
