Play Zombie Games

These are just a few choices from this collection of zombie party games to "liven" up your party.Continue to 5 of 7 below.

Make Zombie Virus
At My Mommy Style, they're not running from zombies, but rather lining up to become them. Check out their super cool zombie party for kids, where guests drink the virus to turn into zombies (complete with facepaint to help the transformation).
The marshmallow shooters are another fun idea, both for hunting zombies and for taking home as party favors!
