Are you planning a fun Halloween party for the kids? It doesn't have to be too scary even if it's Halloween! Here are some game ideas that are spooky while remaning fun and totally safe for small and bigger kids!
You will want to play too!
1. Find the candies!
Without using their hands, kids have to find candies hidden in whipped cream. Messy but so fun!
2. Erase the pumpkin
A great game for the outdoors! You will have to draw a pumpkin on a chalkboard, then have kids throw a damp sponge on the board until the pumpkin is erased!
3. Gourd Hunt
Simple: Have the kids hunt for gourds in the garden!
4. Spider Web Activity
Here's a great game you can play indoors. Make a spider web on the floor using painter's tape while making sure to leave a space for start and finish. Then, add some prizes (candy!) and spiders around the web. Have the kids pick up the prizes while staying on the spider web! As soon as someone takes a step off the tape, they are out the game!
In this game, instead of the typical balloons, use orange cups and cover them with a napkin using a rubber band to secure them. Kids can poke a small hole using their fingers! Inside, you will put either a trick (toothpaste, socks, mustard, etc.) or a treat (small toy, candy)!
6. Candy Corn Game
Probably the easiest game for a children's party! Fill a large bowl with candy corn candy and have the children guess how many there is! The winners get a small gift of your choice.
7. Fill up the Pumpkin with Popcorn Races
A race where you have to fill the pumpkin with popcorn in relay!

You can buy one already made or make one yourself! An easy game that is loved by everyone!
