The Halloween costume provided a disguise from the harmful spirits.
A great Halloween Game is to have a costume party parade. Award prizes for best Halloween costume, Scariest costume or best couples costumes.

Halloween Food is a big part of the Halloween activities and have been included to add more fun.
Toffee apples or taffy apples, as they are known in the USA, are common Halloween treats. They can be eaten on a stick or hung on a string. The hands are tied behind the back, so the apple can only be eaten using the teeth. Very tricky but lots of fun, especially if it is a race. Alternative foods to hang on a string which add to the fun of the Halloween party, is scones soaked in treacle or syrup or you could try jam donuts....Yummy!
In Ireland, Barmbrack is baked, this is a yeast bread, with sugar and sultanas.
Candy Corn is used in America, it is a confectionery which is candy and is made of corn syrup and sugar, with a little bit of salt, and it mimics corn.
Other favorites are roasted sweet corn and of course a variety of pumpkin foods such as pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie and pumpkin seeds.
Consider utilizing these food ideas as part of your Halloween party games.
