Halloween Activities and Games
Halloween Bingo and Other Halloween Games
A fun game to play for the whole family at Halloween night.
List of 30 Halloween words
Plastic Jack-o-lantern, witch hat or other Halloween container
Lotto sheet for each player
Pumpkin seeds or candy corn
Print out Halloween Lotto Sheets (one for each player). Print and cut Halloween words slips. Fold each word slip and place in the plastic Jack-o-lantern. Give each player a lotto sheet and a handful of pumpkin seeds or candy corns. Dim the light and put out some tea light candles to set a spooky mood. Call out the words one at a time from the slips of paper. If the word called out and the picture of the word is on a player's lotto sheet, the player covers it with a pumpkin seed or candy corn. The first player to cover all pictures in a row (up or down) and calls out "Happy Halloween !" is the winner and gets to pull out words the next time around.
Spray paint soda bottles white. Let dry and draw eyes and mouth with permanent black marker. Add a bit of sand or rice to each bottle. Set the bottles up. Create teams and let children roll the pumpkins to try to knock down the "ghosts." If children get a strike, they receive another turn. If they get two strikes, they receive a prize.
Halloween Pumpkin Hunt
Hide pumpkins in the room or outside and have children find the pumpkins.
- First child to find and bring a pumpkin back to the start line wins.
- Hide numbered pumpkins that correspond to a prize.
- Hide lots of pumpkins. The one who brings back the most pumpkins in five minutes wins a prize.
- Divide children into teams. Have one child from each team find and bring a pumpkin back to the start line. Then the next child goes, and so on. The first team to have all the players find a pumpkin wins.
Bobbing for Worms
