Halloween Fear Factor Game For Kids & Craft Idea!

A fun Halloween Game for kids! Feel Factor is just like Fear Factor, but all about reaching into a box to feel and guess! Creepy, and Fun! Makes a great craft, too! KidFriendlyThingsToDo.com

I guess this is kind of a two for one post, today! A Halloween craft idea, and a Halloween party game idea! Nice!

Tomorow, I have the pleasure of hosting my fifth grader’s class Halloween Party. Being fifth graders, they’ve pretty much done all of the cute carnival games, and they’ve seen their share of crafts. So, I have to up my game…literally! We’re not allowed to give the kids food of any sort, so Jelly Belly Fear Factor is out. That’s why I came up with a fun alternative to tasting – feeling…blindfolded! I’m calling our game Feel Factor! I’ve decorated three Kleenex boxes as Halloween characters, and I plan on stuffing them with some pretty gross stuff, well not really gross – but they won’t know that! Come on in, and I’ll show you how I made the boxes, and I’ll give you the down low on the game!

Here are the boxes that I’ve designed for the game! The game will be 6 boxes total – My partner in crime for this event is designing 3 more. But, I was thinking that you could easily just double up on this design. You don’t really need to have a new character for each box.

I was lazy last weekend, and only had white spray paint! So, I went with it! The kids helped me think of all of the white Halloween characters, and Voila’ The mummy, The ghost, and The skeleton Kleenex boxes were born!  3 White characters for Halloween! 

For These Boxes, You’ll Need:

For All:

  • Tissue Boxes – I used the small, but tall! Such as Kleenex
  • White Spray Paint
  • White Foam Paper
  • Scissors
  • Warm glue gun and glue sticks

Additional Items For Ghost:

  • White Felt cut into a 16 x 16 in. square
  • Black Foam Paper, cut to the size of one of your box sides

Additional Items For Mummy:

  • Wiggly Eyes – about 1 in. wide
  • Gauze – I used one roll (from the Dollar Tree)
  • Optional – Red Puffy Paint

Additional Items For Skeleton:

  • Black and Red Puffy Paint

  • Spray your boxes white. My husband just loves it when I don’t cover up the grass. 😉 I told you I was lazy last weekend
  • Cut your foam squares out to match the size of your box top, then fold them in half and cut a V shape
  • Open the fold up, and cut another couple of slits
  • Glue to the top of your box

Ghost

  • I centered my felt, and glued it down
  • Then I cut a couple of ovals out for the eyes, a bigger oval out for the mouth, and a couple of angry eye brows
  • I decided it was too cute for fifth grade boys, so I ran down to my craft section, and grabbed some black foam. I cut that to size, and glued it down. It did the trick! He’s mean looking!

Mummy:

  • I unrolled my gauze, and at the top of my box, I added a dab of glue
  • I stuck the end of the gauze to the glue, and started wrapping the box!
  • About halfway through my roll, I glued the eyes down, and then kept wrapping, covering portions of the eyes
  • Try to go in different directions when you wrap – diagonal, then straight across, then back to diagonal, etc…
  • And, add a little dab of glue every once in a while to help secure the gauze. You don’t want an unwrapped mummy!
  • I finished him off with a little red stitch made with puffy paint

Skeleton:

  • I did this all free hand, and tried my best to make him scary! 
  • My older daughter said that I looked like I had no idea what I was doing on the mouth! The truth is…I had no idea what I was doing on any of him!  I just kept adding more black cracks to try to fake the kids out! 
  • Good luck on this one…when in doubt, add more cracks!

Onto the Game:

Rules for the game:

  • The kids will have to come up – 6 at a time, 3 from each team to sit in our Feel Factor Chairs
  • They’ll be blindfolded, and asked to feel the contents of the box. I think before they start, I’m going to play it up a bit, and talk about potential creepy crawly stuff to feel for! 
  • They will have to guess the Halloween item inside – you can have them whisper to the adults or guess out loud
  • After the kids have all gone – we will tally up the correct guesses, and whichever team guessed the most correctly – wins!!!! 
  • I’m thinking with a class of around 30 kids, this should take up about 20 minutes

What will we fill our boxes with?

These are the ideas we are using to fill our boxes:

  • Peeled cucumber, quartered, then sliced  – witch’s tongue! Picture a long U shape for each slice! 
  • Peeled grapes –  the kids will have to guess, eyeballs!
  • Pipe cleaners, cut into small sections and bent into a V shape – the kids will need to guess spider legs
  • baby carrots wrapped in gauze – for mummy fingers
  • carrot sticks – cut into spears – for witch fingers
