In fact, I remember so vividly playing this Donuts on a String Halloween game as a child at my neighbor’s Halloween party.

I played it again in high school during our Halloween Dance date.

And most recently, it’s become a favorite game at our annual family Halloween parties like our Hocus Pocus – themed Party.

WHAT YOU NEED TO PLAY DONUTS ON A STRING HALLOWEEN GAME:

  • mini donuts (you can use large ones but little ones work better in my opinion)

DIRECTIONS FOR PLAYING DONUTS ON A STRING:

1. Attach the donuts to a string. Then tie the strings with the donuts attached to the pole.

2. Give each person a try or have a race to see who can eat the donut off the string (without hands!) the fastest.

3. Repeat. It will be just as much fun to watch as it will be to play!
