Halloween Party Ideas For Kids
Halloween is one period where you put your stress aside and have all the fun of your life. Every event needs prior planning to make it successful and exciting.So check out our ideas for Halloween party ideas for kids .
Halloween Games And Activities
Donut Eating Race
Eating donuts has never been so fun! Hang several donuts with string from a tree branch or a sturdy rod. Blindfold the contestants and, on the count of three, have each player try to eat their donut — the first one to finish wins!
This is a great pre-party craft that doubles as a game. Have your kids help you with this easy-to-make piñata, fill it with candy and small toys, and decorate it as a spooky ghost or jack-o’-lantern. At the party, have everyone take a swing until it breaks, and then go to town collecting the loot.
This game will leave you all wrapped up!. Divide your party-goers into teams of two, and give each a roll of toilet paper, white crepe paper, or fabric. At the sound of the music, one team member must wrap the other from head to toe (leaving the head free and not binding the arms to the body.) Once completely wrapped, the “mummy” must run to cross the finish line before the others.
Mr. Skeleton Relay Race
This game takes a bit of prep work before your party begins. Buy (or draw) a simple skeleton on sturdy poster board or cardboard, and cut out each of the bones separately. Make enough so each relay team has a full set of skeleton parts.
Divide your players into teams. Place each set of bones at the opposite end of the room or yard. Have the first member from each team line up, and, at the whistle, race across to grab a piece of skeleton, race back, and tag the next team member. The first team to get every piece and assemble their skeleton together correctly wins!
Bobbing for Apples
No Halloween party is complete without this classic game. Fill a round, shallow bucket with water, add some apples, and let the fun begin. And remember — no hands allowed!
It’s like bowling, only better! Simply set up some flat-bottomed veggies (think squash or ears of corn cut in half) the way you would bowling pins. Use small, round pumpkins as the “balls” and you’ve got a great seasonal game to play at your next Halloween party.
Tips for organizing the Harvest Bowling
- 5 small dried gourds
- Masking tape
- 1 or 2 small round pumpkins
Help develop your child’s motor skills while exposing him to some fall vegetables. Your child will enjoy exploring the different colors and interesting textures. Look for gourds that are shaped like bottles, with a wide base and thin neck.
- Set the gourds up like bowling pins.
- Stick a strip of masking tape to the floor to make a start line. This should be quite close to the gourds, as the pumpkins will not roll very far.
- Show your child how to roll the pumpkins to knock down the gourds. Don’t worry about keeping score.
A scarecrow contest is a great way to bring out everyone’s creative side! Provide all the supplies you need to build a scarecrow (hay, old flannel shirts, burlap bags, etc.), pair off into teams, and have everyone get to work building the most creative scarecrow they can in the time allowed.
