This twist on the classic newspaper fashion show game/challenge will delight Halloween party-goers of all ages. This activity can hypothetically be done for about $15 provided that you already have enough scissors and a newspaper subscription. It can entertain party-goers for about an hour.
What You’ll Need:
- One pair of scissors per team
- One roll of masking tape per team
- Two weeks worth of thick newspapers (about a week of only NY Times Sunday paper size)
- A hat or bin
- A blank piece of paper
- (Optional) construction paper and/or glue and/or glitter and/or markers
Write/print the following list onto a piece of paper and cut out each prompt. Mix up the prompts and stick them in a hat or a bucket.
The good witch
The wicked witch of the west
The wicked witch of the east
The candy witch
The rich witch
The pumpkin witch
The Southern belle witch
The movie star witch
Before the party starts, make sure that you have enough scissors and tape for each group. Divide up the newspapers equally for each group. Split the party up into equal groups. Have a member from each group pick a witch prompt from the hat/bucket. Give them about 15 minutes to brainstorm and about 30- 45 minutes to create. At the end, have the witch models walk down a designated runway to Halloween music and have the group explain the design.
Optional: give prizes such as ‘wicked,’ ‘most creative,’ ‘cutest,’ ‘funniest,’ ‘judge’s pick,’ and ‘most likely to cast a spell on our hearts.’
