Fun and easy Halloween games for kids

fun games for Hallowen

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (well, besides Christmas!)

Halloween is a great time for kids to have fun with spooky and entertaining games. Here are some Halloween games suitable for children:

  1. Bobbing for Apples: Fill a large tub with water and float apples in it. Kids must try to grab an apple with their teeth, but they can’t use their hands.
  2. Pumpkin Bowling: Set up a bowling alley using mini pumpkins as pins and a small ball as the bowling ball.
  3. Pin the Nose on the Pumpkin: Similar to “Pin the Tail on the Donkey,” blindfolded kids try to pin a paper nose onto a poster of a pumpkin while being spun around.
  4. Halloween Scavenger Hunt: Create a list of Halloween-themed items for kids to find around the house or yard. You can also use clues for older kids.
  5. Ghost Freeze Dance: Play Halloween-themed music and have the kids dance. When the music stops, they must freeze like ghosts. If they move, they’re out.
  6. Mummy Wrap: Divide the kids into pairs. Give each pair a roll of toilet paper. One child in each pair becomes the mummy, and the other wraps them up in toilet paper as fast as they can.
  7. Witch Hat Ring Toss: Set up witch hats at different distances and have kids toss rings (you can use plastic rings or make them from cardboard) onto the witch hats.
  8. Spider Web Walking: Create a “spider web” on the floor with tape (sticky side up). Have the kids walk across it without touching the tape, pretending they’re spiders.
  9. Halloween Charades: Write Halloween-themed words or phrases on slips of paper and have the kids take turns acting them out while the others guess what they’re doing.
  10. Monster Freeze Tag: Play a game of freeze tag, but when a child is tagged by the “monster,” they must freeze in a spooky pose until someone else tags them to unfreeze.
  11. Pumpkin Ring Toss: Set up carved or decorated pumpkins and have the kids try to toss rings onto the pumpkin stems.
  12. Monster Mash Dance Party: Let the kids have a dance party to the “Monster Mash” and other Halloween songs.
  13. Candy Corn Relay Race: Divide kids into teams and have them carry candy corn on a spoon from one end of the yard to the other. If they drop it, they must start over.
  14. Halloween Coloring Contest: Provide Halloween-themed coloring sheets and crayons. Have a contest for the most creative or spooky coloring.
  15. Halloween Storytelling Circle: Sit in a circle and have each child contribute a sentence or two to create a spooky, collaborative Halloween story.

Remember to consider the age and comfort level of the children when planning these games to ensure they are suitable and enjoyable for everyone. You can also adjust the difficulty level or rules as needed to make the games more or less challenging.
