One classic Halloween game that never goes out of style is the Mummy Wrap. Divide the kids into teams of two and give each team a roll of toilet paper or crepe paper. One child becomes the mummy, while the other child wraps them up from head to toe, leaving only the eyes visible.
The team that finishes wrapping their mummy first wins! You can also have a creative twist by providing some additional accessories like fake spiders and bats to make the mummies scarier.
This game puts a Halloween spin on the traditional game of bowling. Set up a bowling alley in your living room or classroom using empty water bottles and decorate them as spooky ghosts. Use a small pumpkin as the bowling ball. Let the kids take turns rolling the pumpkin to knock down the ghost pins. To make it even more fun, you can add glow sticks inside the water bottles to make them glow in the dark.
Create a witch-themed ring toss game by using cone-shaped party hats decorated as witch hats. Place the hats at various distances and let the kids take turns tossing rings or bracelets to land on the pointed part of the hat. Assign different point values to each hat, and the player with the highest score at the end wins. This game not only enhances motor skills but also adds a touch of Halloween magic.
Turn your living room or classroom into a spider’s lair with a spider web scavenger hunt. Using white yarn, create a web pattern by attaching it to different furniture, door frames, and other stationary objects. Attach small plastic spiders to the web using tape.
Hide Halloween-themed treats or small prizes around the room, and let the kids follow the web to find them. The child who collects the most treats wins! This game encourages problem-solving skills and adds an element of mystery.
A Halloween twist on the classic party game Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Draw a large pumpkin on a poster board or use a ready-made pumpkin cutout. Blindfold the kids one by one, spin them around, and let them try to pin the stem in the correct spot on the pumpkin. You can make it more challenging by cutting out stems in different sizes or shapes. The child who gets the closest to the right spot wins a spooky prize!
