Children’s games for Halloween parties
Last year I had my first experience hosting my kid’s class parties and I loved it!
Okay it was a bit stressful at times, but it was worth seeing how much fun the kids were having. But when I’ve learned one thing, start early!
I’ve always loved Fall and Halloween parties – my birthday is November 2nd, so I’ve had a lot of birthday parties that fell around that time of year. Developing Halloween-themed games for my guests was one of my favorite things to do!
Pinterest didn’t exist then, but I wish we had access to some of these fun Halloween games back then.
Jack is back at school and I’ve volunteered again to be the classmother. While I’m waiting a little longer to see if anyone else volunteers to organize the games for the Halloween party, I’m happy to have some great EASY games up my sleeve in case I have to organize a few myself.
Below are 15 fall and Halloween party games that are great for kids. These ideas are from other blogs, so click for full instructions
Hopefully this will make planning a fall party a little easier this year!
Not all of them are exclusively Halloween-themed … but honestly I’ll just sum the two up 🙂 These are perfect Halloween games, as well as classic games that are perfect for a Halloween class party!

Halloween Don’t Eat Pete game board to print –
This is a printable game board that I made and it always puts me in the Halloween spirit! I LOVE Don’t Eat Pete, and kids love it too. It’s one of our favorite free prints. It’s such a fun party game that can be played with small groups including older kids and younger kids. Plus, I appreciate any excuse for getting goodies!
Halloween charades – that would make for a fun Halloween party! And is great for your child’s class party with larger groups and is a great way to get kids involved and moving -. Charades is a good game that can be part of a virtual Halloween party and create a friendly competition between the students. You can download it from the following download link.
Put in a pumpkin
This is a personal favorite of mine. If you’re the housemother and you’re planning a classroom Halloween party and just want something simple, a pumpkin stuck is a great game for that. It’s always a big hit that doesn’t take much effort and would be a great addition that is perfect for kids of all ages. All you need is a foam sheet, plastic cups, elastic bands, tissue paper, and some fun goodies – candy or non-candy based!
Pumpkin Patch Stomp – This would be really fun to do outside. Be aware that some kids start out with popping balloons, so make sure you know your audience about it!
Pin the Spider on the Web – A fun twist on a classic party game. Love this idea!
Halloween Scavenger Hunt – So much fun! – It would be great for an outdoor friendly activity with a Halloween twist. No matter how big the class, it would be a fun Halloween activity for young kids! And this is a good game if you want the kids to be a safe distance apart. We offer this on our website –
Spider Race –
We did this at Jack’s Halloween party last year and it was a huge hit and such a fun activity for the kids. It’s good for a smaller group or a large group.
