15 Halloween Party Games

Each year, I organize a huge Halloween party. We have lots and lots of games for the kids. The kids all have lots of fun!! Today I wanted to share some of the games that we play at our party… Each year I try to change things up a bit, but here are some games that we’ve done in the past. I wanted to share this early enough this year to be useful for those organizing something the week or so before Halloween.

I made a document of all these games and shared them as a free download.  You’ll find that at the end.

We made a lot of our decorations by hand out of old boxes.

Racing Games Station:

Ghost Waiter – Each child carries a paper plate on their hand like a waiter, balance a balloon on top of the plate.  Race to the end and back.

Zombie Daylight Darkness – This is played like red-light green light. One person is at the end. When she faces the kids it is DAYLIGHT and no one can move. When she faces away from the kids, it is night-time. The kids can move forward like Zombies (no running). When the person at the end turns back, if she spots a zombie moving, that player goes back to the beginning.

Eyeball Races – This is an egg and spoon race.  Give each child a plastic spoon and a ping-pong eyeball. Race down to the end and back without dropping the eyeball.

Witch’s Broom Race  – Each child is given a broom and a balloon. They have to sweep the balloon down to the end and back.

Skeleton Bone Race – Each child is given a half a straw and a paper bone.  When it’s time to go, the child sucks on the straw and holds the bone on the end of the straw (NO HANDS!). The child who gets the farthest before the bone drops off (or the ones who get to the end) win that round.

Under the Witch’s Broom– This the game “LIMBO”  Two people hold a broom. Children go under the broom, one at at time bending their back (stomach facing up). The child cannot touch the floor with their hands. If they fall, they are out.

Ghost Waiter – Each child carries a paper plate on their hand like a waiter, balance a balloon on top of the plate.  Race to the end and back.

Ghostly Eyes and Mouth Game — This game was made out of a shoe box.  The inside of the box was painted black. Then a paper ghost was glued down.   Holes were cut out and ping-pongs were decorated to look like 2 eyes and a mouth. The object was for kids to get all three of the balls onto the cut-out space!

Slimy Slug Toss – We purchased stretchy, slimy slugs from Oriental Trading (the kind that stick to the wall). The kids are given 3 slugs and have to toss one of the slugs into the cup. It sounds easy, but those slimy slugs stick to your hand!!

Homemade Candy CornRecipe: When we lived in Australia (when the kids were little), we couldn’t buy candy corn. I looked around for a recipe and found something online that has worked well. Now it’s become our family tradition to make our own candy corn each fall! For the recipe and instructions visit this post: Homemade Candy Corn Recipe
