It’s true Halloween is often associated with all things spooky and scary, but we’re here to tell you that it is possible to have a frightfully good time this Halloween season…without a single fright!
Today, we’re sharing our top 5 Halloween games that are kid-friendly and sure to have your little trick-or-treater screaming…but with delight rather than fear! Best of all, most of these games can easily be created at home with just a few items from your local craft or seasonal Halloween store.
We love this game for so many reasons—the monsters on the cards are cuter than they are scary (think Sully from Monsters Inc.), and the entire game can be printed (for free!) from the comfort of your own home. All you need to provide are bingo markers (we love the creator’s suggestion of using Halloween candy like candy corn or Brach’s Candy Pumpkins…which look adorable but no one seems to want to eat).
The crafting gurus over at Joann Fabric have come through in a big way, serving up a detailed tutorial for this darling hoop toss game with a fun Halloween theme.
We’re not going to lie…this project is a bit more labor intensive, but the kids (and likely the adults) in your life are going to love it!
Here’s another game that is perfect for littles and comes together in minutes! Simply purchase plastic cups in seasonal colors, draw on a few silly faces, then stack them up and let your child use a water gun or squirt bottle to see how many they can knock down.
This game is perfect for all ages, including tweens, teens, and adults (we know how competitive some of you can be!).
All you need is enough people to divide into teams and one brave soul to serve as the “mummy”. The rest of the team uses toilet paper and, upon “go”, rushes to wrap the mummy from head to toe in paper. The team who completes the job the fastest (or who gets the most paper on their mummy in the allotted time) wins!
Who doesn’t love a good scavenger hunt? We love them so much we’ve come up with a couple of options for you depending on the age of your participants.
For the younger, non-reading crowd, this cute printout uses fun illustrations to tell little hunters what to look for. These are great fun to take along while you trick or treat since they’ll see most of the items on the list either as costumes or yard décor.
For the older crew, try this Halloween Text Scavenger Hunt. Simply create a group chat or text with the kids, then use the downloadable list of keywords to send text suggestions to the group (words like “candy” “a real spider” or “Halloween mask”). Everyone must find an example of the keyword (in real life…no screenshots of online images) and reply to the group.
And there you have it—five games that prove Halloween activities don’t have to be scary to make the most of the season.
