Kids love Halloween parties, and what is a party without some fun games? Take a look at 5 Halloween party games for kids we rounded up. These games are fun to play, and frugal for you as well.
5 Halloween Party Games for Kids
1. Monster Mystery Boxes
Take 5 shoeboxes with lids. Cut a hole in the side so that kids can easily reach their hands in, but not see what’s inside. Label each box with the following words: Mummy Cloth, Zombie Eyes, Witch’s Hair, Monster Fingers, and Ghost Brains. For the mummy cloth place some damp toilet paper in the box. For the zombie eyes, use peeled grapes. Use cooked pasta for the witch’s hair, wet carrots for the monster fingers, and some jello for the ghost brains. Let children reach in and feel around the various mystery boxes. Be prepared for screams! If you want, you can even allow the children to guess and label each box after feeling inside.
2. Spooky Spider Webs
Take a bag of spider web and cover a doorway with it. Add some fake plastic spiders and bugs. Let each child get “caught” in the web. Instead of tying them up as prey, you can wrap a treat tied to some yarn around their wrist of ankle. Then, set them free of course!
3. Scarecrow contest.
Divide the children into teams and give them scarecrow making supplies. This includes old clothes, straw, a hat, newspaper, and other odds and ends. Let each team make their own scarecrow. They can even name their scarecrow if they wish! Display them outside for all to see.
4. Easy Edible Spiders
Have fun “eating” spider webs (either licorice rope or cotton candy) then make your own spiders. Poke pretzel sticks into the sides of a large marshmallow. Add a little frosting and candy for eyes. You now have easy, edible spiders that children can chase after each other with before devouring.
5. Frankenstein Feet
Make your own Frankenstein feet monsters. Place some green paint on the child’s foot, and black paint on the toes, and press it to paper. Add eyes with paint or press on googly eyes. You will have a foot print monster in no time. You can also make ghosts using this same technique, just paint the feet white and press. Add eyes.
These 5 Halloween games for kids are so fun and easy to enjoy. Give one, or all, a try at your next Halloween party and see how much fun you can have.
