How to Make Gross Halloween Worm Apples

These simple and easy to make but effective "Worm-Ridden Apples" make a great table centrepiece for your Halloween party, or if the worms are fixed in securely, use them in Apple Bobbing for an original twist on the traditional game.

Ingredients:

  • Use medium to large apples for best effect
  • A little lemon juice (freshly squeezed or from bottle)
  • Use medium to large apples for the best effect
  • Gummy worm sweets (from Pick n Mix or supermarket)
  1. Use a corer to make two holes in each apple (if you're little, ask an adult to help with this bit). The holes should all reach the core (centre) of the apple, but they should be at random angles, not just straight through from one side to the other.

  2. Brush a little lemon juice on the inside of the holes. This stops the apples from going brown as quickly.

  3. Finally, simply thread a gummy candy worm through each apple, in one hole and out the other. If you have really long gummy worms like the apple in the picture on the right, you might need to make 3 holes and thread the worm in & out.

Halloween Party Games

Here are some of the best Halloween party games that you can play with friends and Furbys!

  • Apple Bobbing
    It wouldn't be Halloween without a game of classic apple bobbing. It's simple - just float a load of apples in a bucket or washing up bowl full of water. Get everyone's hands tied behind their back, and get them to pick out an apple using just their mouth. Biting the stalks is cheating. It's not as easy as it looks!

  • Donuts on a String
    This game is fun and frustrating, but best of all, it's an excuse to eat donuts! The method is this - tie some ring donuts onto pieces of string, and tie the other ends to a rod or pole. Players have to eat the donuts off the string without using their hands. Optional rule - anyone who licks the sugar off their lips gets disqualified!
  • Bowl of Jelly
    This gross sticky game is ideal for Halloween. Get a huge bowl and fill it with jelly. Make sure there's enough space cleared in the fridge for it to set! Once the jelly is half-set, drop lots of gummy sweets into it (Haribo is ideal), so they're suspended in the jelly. Once it's fully set, the game can begin. Each person takes it in turns to dip their head into the bowl of jelly and get as many sweets as they can in 30 seconds!
  • Shoebox Nasties
    Prepare this ghastly game for your Halloween guests to "enjoy"... Get several shoeboxes or small cardboard boxes and cut a round hole in the front of each, just big enough for a hand to fit through. On the inside of each box, glue a flap of fabric so it hangs down over the hole. Inside each box, place a gross-feeling object. Our suggestions are: cooked cold spaghetti (slime), pomegranate fruits cut open (brains), the brush from a dustpan and brush set (bat legs), and lychee fruits peeled and cut open (eyeballs). Of course, you can use your imagination and pick anything you think will work well. Players have to take it in turns to put their hand through each shoebox hole and guess what's inside. The winner is the one who guesses the most items!

Patterns for your Halloween Pumpkin (Jack-o-Lantern)

We all know the traditional "scary face" pumpkin you see everywhere at Halloween, but here are some more original and unusual designs you can try. You can either copy the patterns from sight, or print and cut out the designs as a guide, stick them on your pumpkin, and cut around them. Click pics to enlarge.

The Blue Boys having a chat and a pint of something green...

Either the green stuff has got to Merlin the Wizard, or he's seen something he doesn't like in the bottom of the cauldron!

Chestnut and Toffee, two volunteers, helped to clear up afterwards. They got in a bit of a state with the tea towel!
