Halloween Party @ Sellers Library!

Halloween fell on a Friday this year, which worked out perfectly since I wanted to have a Halloween party on a Friday night at the library! We had 18 teens show up, many most in costume, to play some Halloween themed games, make some Halloween themed crafts, and of course, eat Halloween themed pizza.
...Okay, the pizza wasn't actually Halloween themed in any way, but it is still an essential for a Halloween party!

We started out the night with a simple Minute to Win It game where each person has one minute to inflate a balloon, then use the air from the balloon to blow a row of 15 plastic cups off the table. Then we played another Minute to Win It game, Dizzy  Mummy, which was a hit at last year's party too. Everyone gets into teams of two, with one person trying to unwrap an entire roll of toilet paper over the other person. The team to use up their roll first wins! I also brought out a Nerf gun and zombie targets for some target shooting.

One of my favorite things about Halloween are the movies, and throughout the party there was a projector playing a YouTube playlist of Halloween-y clips for people to enjoy. Classics like Thriller, Dracula, Frankenstein, and Nightmare Before Christmas were playing while people enjoyed pizza. Overall it was a really fun night, and I'm already looking forward to next Halloween!
