Halloween Games For Kids

While adults may be jumping on​ the​ Halloween bandwagon,​ first and foremost Halloween is​ a​ kid's holiday. Besides trick-or-treating and costumes,​ Halloween parties are one of​ the​ many activities that kids can look forward to​ each Halloween. if​ you are thinking of​ jumping in​ and hosting your own kid's party this year,​ one thing that you will need to​ think about is​ the​ games.

When planning kid's party games,​ keep in​ mind that many games will only have one winner. So be sure to​ play enough games that every child can be a​ winner,​ or​ consider providing second and third place prizes to​ help avoid hurt feelings. if​ you don't want to​ use candy for prizes,​ Halloween party favors and small toys also make great prize ideas.

Ghostly musical chairs

Almost everyone is​ familiar with the​ game of​ musical chairs,​ so you probably won't need a​ detailed expression of​ the​ rules. All you need is​ one chair less than the​ number of​ kids attending the​ party (so 9 chairs for 10 kids,​ for example). Cover the​ chairs with white sheets and paint some eyes and mouths on​ them to​ make them look like ghosts. Line the​ chairs up or​ arrange them in​ a​ circle. to​ play the​ game,​ play some music while the​ children walk around the​ chairs. When the​ music stops,​ the​ child left without a​ chair is​ out. Remove a​ chair,​ and keep playing until there is​ only one child left.

Dress the​ scarecrow

If you have some of​ dad's old clothing lying around the​ house,​ this is​ a​ fun game for kids. Divide the​ children into small teams,​ and give all teams some clothes for their scarecrow. Jeans or​ overalls,​ flannel shirts,​ boots,​ gloves,​ and a​ straw hat are typical,​ though you can use whatever you have on​ hand. One child in​ the​ team is​ the​ scarecrow,​ and has to​ stand still while the​ others of​ the​ team put the​ clothes on. the​ first team to​ complete a​ scarecrow is​ the​ winner.

Meet my mummy

For this one,​ you will again want to​ divide children into small teams and have one child volunteer to​ be the​ mummy (preferably a​ child who was not the​ scarecrow if​ you play both games). Give each team a​ roll of​ toilet paper,​ and have them wrap their mummy with it​ (you can also use rolls of​ streamers in​ Halloween colors if​ you would prefer). the​ first team done wins.

Pin the​ nose on​ the​ jack-o-lantern

Create a​ large pumpkin out of​ cardboard,​ or​ make one out of​ construction paper and pin it​ to​ a​ bulletin board. Paint or​ glue eyes and a​ mouth on​ the​ jack-o-lantern,​ leaving the​ area where the​ nose should be empty. Cut out several yellow triangles,​ writing the​ child's name on​ the​ front and placing a​ small piece of​ double-sided tape on​ the​ back. Blindfold children and have them attempt to​ pin the​ nose where it​ belongs. to​ make the​ game more difficult,​ spin the​ child in​ circles several times before having them pin the​ nose on.

Almost any child's party game can be converted to​ a​ Halloween game with a​ little creativity. of​ course,​ leave plenty of​ time for snacks and the​ ever-popular costume contest.
