5 EASY Halloween games for kids including ghost bowling, candy guess game, pumpkin toss, punch a box and pin the spider on the web. These games are perfect for any Halloween party with kids!
Since my daughter has a birthday in October, she decided she wanted to go with a Halloween theme this year. We had fun planning it together and these are the Halloween games we came up with. The kids all loved them!
- 9 plastic cups
- black marker
- mini pumpkin or ball
Instructions: Simply draw a ghost face on the cups and then stack 3 cups on the bottom, 2 in the middle and one on top. Use the pumpkin or ball to bowl.
Candy Guess Game
- glass jar
- bag of candy
- free printable jar label and guess cards (download below)
Instructions: Fill a jar with candy. Next, count the number of candies that are placed in the jar and keep that number a secret. Then lock the jar and have your guests write down how many they think are in the jar. The winner who is the closest gets to keep the jar filled with candy. Free download for the tags below.
Pumpkin Balloon Toss
- orange balloons
- free printable green leaf (download below)
Instructions: This game is easy and fun for the kids to play. Blow up several orange balloons and then if you’d like, tie on a green leaf (free download below) with a string to look like a pumpkin. Then have all the players grab a partner. Have each group toss the balloon back and forth. The group to keep the balloons from touching the ground the longest wins.
Punch the Box
- cardboard box
- free printable punch the box label (download below)
- box cutter
- plastic cups
- tissue paper
- rubber bands
- candy or toys
- spray paint (optional)
Instructions: Trace the cups onto the cardboard box. Then use your box cutter to cut out the circles. You want to cut inside the circle, leaving about 1/8″ space from the drawn circle. You may at this point spray paint your box if desired.
Next fill your cups with candy and/or toys. Then place a piece of tissue paper over the cup and secure with a rubber band. Then stick the cup into the hole. Secure with tape or hot glue if needed.
Let your guests each take a turn to punch through the cup and claim their prize.
Pin the Spider on the Web
- free printable spider web (download below)
- paper spiders (download below)
- blind folds
Instructions: Print out the spider web below (we printed it on a large engineer print). Then give each guest a spider and have them place a blind fold over their eyes and try to place the spider in the middle of the web. You can use sticky spiders or the free printable spider below with a piece of tape behind it. The spider closest to the middle wins.
