Halloween Party Games for Kids

If you’re planning on hosting a Halloween party for kids or families, it is always good to have various Halloween party games for children to keep them entertained. Send out invitations to your guests and tell them to come dressed in their best Halloween costumes. Next, decide on a few Halloween games for kids or activities that you think will compliment the party. Here are a few ideas:

  • Bobbing for Apples: Apple bobbing is a fun Halloween party game for kids as well as a classic fall and Halloween activity that is entertaining for all ages. Fill a large kiddie pool or bucket with warm water and crisp apples. Tie each participant's hands behind their back with a hankerchief and let the fun begin!
  • Mystery Jar Guessing Game: Fill a glass jar full of either candy corns or Halloween candy and let your guests try to guess how many pieces are in the jar. The one who guesses closest gets to take the jar home with them as a prize!
  • Pumpkin Bowling: Pumpkin bowling is another fun Halloween party game for kids or adults. Set up plastic bowling pins or empty plastic bottles filled halfway with water. Use a small to medium-sized pumpkin as the bowling ball. Have prizes like Halloween-inspired toys or candy bags for whoever can knock down the most pins.
  • Witch Hunt: A witch hunt is a great game to play if you’re hosting a party for children. Fill small Halloween bags with candy. Place pictures of witches on each bag and hide them either around your house or in your back yard. Then, have the kids search for the “witches” and let them take the goody bags home as a Halloween treat.

All of these games will make your party exciting, memorable and fun for guests - big or small!
