The Best Halloween Party Games

The Was To Make Your Spooky Party More Fun

Donut Eating Race: If you’ve never participated in a donut eating race, you are missing out! It is a great game not only for Halloween parties but birthday parties too.  If you can get the adults to participate, your stomach will hurt from all the laughing, I promise!

Candy Corn Guessing Game: Fill a jar full of candy corn and let each kid guess how many are in the jar. The winner can take the jar home with them at the end of the night.

Witch Hat Ring Toss: You can make your own ring toss game or buy one that is so cute here.

DIY Halloween fun challenges

Classroom Halloween Party Games for Kids

Poke the Pumpkin: This looks like fun, similar to the balloon pop game!  Possibly even easier to put together, since instead of blowing up balloons, you’re just wrapping orange tissue paper around a paper cup and securing with a rubber band.

Marshmallow Toss Game: Easy and fun- you can use mini marshmallows and paper cups or large marshmallows and some of those little tin buckets from the dollar store would be great too!

Pumpkin Patch Stomp: Any Halloween Party can be made so much better by popping a few balloons for prizes! Before blowing up the balloons, stuff with money slips of paper, or squish-proof candy

Halloween Bingo: Halloween Bingo is always a hit, I especially love this for classroom Halloween parties or playdates. You can find tons of free printable Halloween Bingo cards online.

Classroom Party games

Budget-Friendly & Free Games for Kids

Toilet Paper Mummy: This toilet paper game is budget-friendly (who doesn’t have toilet paper) and loads of fun, it’s sure to have everyone laughing like crazy! The way the game works, is you pit several teams of 3 (one mummy, 2 wrappers) against each other, and the team that finishes wrapping their roll of toilet paper around the mummy first, wins!

Halloween Charades: Another great Halloween game idea? Charades with a Halloween theme!  So many laughs and so easy to play. Grab the free Halloween Charades printable here.

Pumpkin Toss: Another budget-friendly DIY Halloween Game for your party. This one is especially great for toddlers. It’s easy to put together as the pumpkins are just toilet paper wrapped in felt and you can get the baskets from your local craft or Dollar Store!
