I am a mom to a toddler and I always make a good plan for Halloween party. But still, whenever someone says Halloween, it reminds me of my own childhood days. They used to be so much fun with all my siblings and friends.

My mom used to make us our spooky Halloween costumes that were the best. Also, going with my dad to choose the pumpkin from the lot was always a thing that my sister and I would look up to.

Not just that. The carving of the pumpkin and making our Jack-O’ Lanterns were something that I would cherish forever. The best part of Halloween was the night when we used to play fun games such as solving riddles and going for Halloween-themed scavenger hunts.

If you want to make your Halloween memorable too, you can include some exciting games in your Halloween party. Games such as riddles are not only fun and engaging, but they tickle your brain, too.

You can also ask riddles to all the trick-or-treaters coming to your door and make them giggle.
