Class Party Halloween Games
If you ask children what their favorite holiday is,​ the​ most likely response from most children will be Christmas,​ with Halloween coming in​ a​ close second .​
Some children will choose Halloween as​ their first favorite .​
But this holiday,​ with all its goblins and ghouls,​ likely makes the​ top two favorite holidays on​ most children's' lists.
To that end,​ then,​ it's always fun to​ have a​ raucous Halloween class party .​
With lots of​ fun games and activities,​ and plenty of​ candy for prizes,​ it's sure to​ be a​ hit with kids of​ all school ages .​
For younger children how about a​ game of​ pumpkin bowling? Find some of​ those inexpensive plastic pumpkin treat buckets and stack them up on​ a​ hard floor .​
You can stack them as​ high as​ you like,​ but you have to​ start with at​ least three buckets .​
If you get many buckets,​ you can make a​ pyramid out of​ them .​
Find some lightweight plastic balls - plastic bowling balls are excellent for this .​
And let the​ kids go bowling! the​ kids love knocking over the​ pumpkin heads and all the​ kids who play should get a​ prize for this game .​
Kids of​ all ages enjoy making mummies out of​ themselves and their friends .​
Here's how this works .​
You bring in​ toilet paper,​ lots and lots of​ toilet paper .​
Divide the​ kids into teams of​ 2 .​
When you begin timing the​ kids,​ they must wrap their friend up in​ the​ toilet paper,​ mummy style .​
The first team who is​ all wrapped wins .​
The child who's wrapped up like a​ mummy can then break out of​ the​ toilet paper wrap with a​ scary roar and the​ game begins again so the​ other child can also be wrapped .​
Be sure to​ play some spooky Halloween music while this game is​ being played to​ add to​ the​ atmosphere .​
Circle time! Have all the​ kids get in​ a​ circle and begin a​ spooky story .​
The story can begin with the​ classic,​ It was a​ dark and spooky night.. .​
and then the​ person next in​ the​ circle continues the​ story .​
Each child adds something to​ the​ story as​ it​ moves around the​ circle .​
If the​ children are young,​ you can keep the​ story on​ the​ straight and narrow by indicating no gruesome elements will be allowed .​
If the​ kids are older,​ you can decide how scary the​ story can be .​
Be aware that children in​ higher elementary grades will not only like their stories fairly scary and gruesome,​ but some might even add booger and snot and throw up elements to​ their story .​
You can set the​ rules ahead of​ time to​ prepare for this type of​ storytelling .​
No game has held onto children's interests for more years than the​ classic musical chairs .​
This version includes playing Halloween music (think Monster Mash or​ Thriller by Michael Jackson) and asking the​ kids to​ act as​ spooky and scary as​ they can while they race around the​ chairs .​
You can up the​ rules depending on​ the​ ages of​ the​ children .​
For example,​ for children in​ the​ lower grades you can tell them to​ just walk around the​ chairs until the​ music stops .​
As they get older,​ you can add challenging elements,​ such as​ make scary faces as​ you walk around the​ chairs,​ do the​ monster mash (whatever that means to​ the​ individual kid) and other things like that .​
You're sure to​ get some creative responses.
Kids love cakewalks,​ but they aren't practical in​ the​ classroom .​
You could,​ however,​ have a​ treat walk .​
Save enough space in​ the​ classroom for this one .​
Again,​ play some Halloween-themed music and have the​ kids walk around in​ a​ circle as​ they do for cakewalks during other school events .​
Instead of​ having them walk onto number squares or​ circles,​ however,​ you can have them walking onto cardboard discs that include pictures of​ ghosts,​ monsters and the​ like .​
The person running the​ cakewalk will stop the​ music and pull a​ matching picture out of​ a​ pumpkin head .​
Instead of​ calling #14,​ for example,​ as​ the​ winner of​ the​ cakewalk,​ it​ will be ghost head or​ monster mouth.
