Newspaper Monster Toss

1. Newspaper Eating Monster Toss

Halloween party games bring plenty of excitement! Here’s another fun and easy toss game you can incorporate into your next Halloween party. This is an especially great game for preschool (pre-k) children as young as three years old, kindergarten, and grade one and grade two. A couple of simple embellishments + a bucket = squeals of delight when you call it “feeding a monster.” Hang on to those old newspapers and use them for this thrilling newspaper-eating monster toss game. Great for home or school parties and carnivals, too.

Halloween Party Game Spider Web Walking Game

2. Spider Web Walking Halloween Game 

This game gives “searching the web” new meaning. It actually requires balance and problem-solving, with a few spiders thrown in for excitement. Painter’s tape is used to create a web on the floor. Plastic spiders and a prize (in this case, a glowstick) are placed around the web. Kids have to stay on the web and collect all the items and make it back to home base to win!

3. DIY Halloween Bubbles 

Chasing bubbles is fun for kids of all ages. A simple, homemade DIY idea, you could use them as favors at a Halloween party, take them to your kid’s classroom party instead of candies or even hand them out to Trick or Treaters.

4. Pumpkin Bowling

Starring Toilet Paper as Ghost and Pumpkin as the Ball, this uncomplicated game can entertain little ones for ages. We bet you’ll have all the supplies on hand to create this bowling game. You’ll use a black sharpie marker to create the faces on toilet paper and pumpkin before allowing kids to go “bowling”.

5. Pom Pom Popper Ghosts

Simple white cups are transformed into cute ghosts and pumpkins with the help of a marker. Balloons taped to the bottom help create fun with this game. Kids can fill their pumpkin or ghost cups with little pom-poms and then use the balloon to make them fly!


Party and Fun

6. Poke A Pumpkin 

Orange cups, napkins, and rubber bands hide tricks AND treats in this fun game that puts a new spin on treasure hunting. You can create your own version of this thrilling Halloween game by hiding prizes inside orange cups and affixing napkins over the tops using rubber bands. Hot glue the cups to a piece of black foam core in the shape of a pumpkin. Treats could include things like candy, stickers, and small toys. Tricks could include toothpaste, socks, and gag gifts.

7. Pop Goes The Pumpkin 

Are you looking to kick off Halloween with a bang? You don’t have to buy your fun when you can make it. This pop goes the pumpkin game will keep the Halloween “boos” at bay! Confetti and candy-filled balloons start the party off with a bang! This Halloween party game is great for older kids up to 10 to 12 years old who won’t be alarmed by the loud popping of balloons. Bonus—this classic balloon pop game also makes a festive wall decoration for your party!

8. Witch’s Hat Toss 

Such a great game to play! The witching hour definitely calls for a wickedly fun party game. Everyone’s favorite carnival game of ring toss is given a twist by using witch hats instead of cones. Are you feeling crafty? You can make the witch hats out of craft paper and glue. Short on time? Pick up some ready-made witch hats.

Halloween Can Game

9. Halloween Can Bowling Game 

Dress up a few empty tin cans as Halloween characters and you’ve got a great knock ‘em down game. Kids as old as 10-12 years will enjoy this activity. Old soup cans are cleaned and decorated for this fun activity. Some cans are painted, some have felt pipe cleaners, and some have fabric. Faces and googly eyes are added as well, then it’s time to play. We think creating this Halloween bowling game would be just as much fun as playing it.

Spider Halloween Corn Hole

10. Cornhole Halloween Game For Kids 

Step one: make spiders as a craft activity. Step two: spiders scurry to hide in dark holes, with a little help from your kids. This fun Halloween version of the classic cornhole game is sure to deliver lots of fun and laughter at any Halloween party.

Halloween Party Game Pumpkin Picking

11. Pumpkin Punch Hole

Another punch-hole idea, but this version can be reloaded with prizes to keep the fun going. Kids as old as 4th or 5th graders will enjoy it, making it a great option for a class or school party. Pieces of orange felt are decorated like pumpkins before being attached to the frame. Kids can keep the prize they select, or you can make it more challenging by having them match up items before they win, or by adding different textures.

12. Pumpkin Golf

Halloween Witch Pitch Game

13. Witch Pitch

Candy corn and cauldrons make perfect game partners. Mini plastic cauldrons are hot glued to a giant piece of black cardstock. Kids are given their own stash of candy corn to toss into the cauldrons. This is sure to create lots of giggles as they work to fill up the cauldrons!


Halloween and Party

14. Pumpkin Balloon Stomp 

All you need is a pack of orange balloons and some small candy or small coins. Before you blow the balloons up, slide the candy or small coins inside. After all the balloons are blown up, you can let the kids get creative and go wild as they try to pop the balloons and catch the prizes inside.
