Halloween Party Game Ideas

The Mia Maids are going to put on a Halloween Party for the Activity Day Girls the week of Halloween. I have been searching the internet and these are some of the ideas that I found. I thought it might be helpful as Halloween is quickly approaching!

  • Broomstick Relay Races - Set up an obstacle course and the participants have a broomstick that they ride through the course
  • Face Painting
  • Cupcake Decorating
  • Cake Walk - you can use the cupcakes that were decorated as the prizes and some lively Halloween music
  • Pumpkin painting, carving or just plain decorating - this can be made into a competition
  • Musical Tombstones - musical chairs decorated like tombstones with Halloween music playing
  • Taffy Pull - find a good recipe and let them take theirs home as a treat!
  • Mummy Wrap Game - split the group into 2 teams, each team picks a mummy from their group which they wrap in one roll of white crate paper (not covering their face) as soon as they are done, the mummy has to hop over the finish line
  • Boo am I? (Halloween version of charades) - Prepare white balloons with a piece of paper inside each with a Halloween character written on it and blow up, divide the group into two teams, each team picks one person who has three minutes to pick out a balloon, pop it by whatever means necessary, read the clue inside and act it out until her team guesses it correctly. They keep going until each team member has a chance to participate. The team to finish first wins!
  • Witch's Stew Game - Using construction paper cut out Halloween shapes about the size of a silver dollar. Place shapes in a pile beside a small bowl. Using a straw as a vacuum, each contestant tries to pick up a shape and place it in the bowl to create the witch's stew. Time the players to see who gets it done the quickest. Side note: we've played a game similar to this using skittles and let them keep the skittles that they get in their bowls and it changes turns when someone rolls doubles with dice.
  • Halloween Bingo - either use pictures or words
  • Ring the Witch Hat - Using a witch hat and paper plate rings painted toss the rings over the witch hat
  • Apple Bobbing
  • Donut on a string - using only your mouth try to eat a donut hanging from a string
  • Ghost waiter - Using white balloons draw a ghost face on it, divide the children into teams, and set up a course for the race. Each child has to balance their balloon on a paper plate while walking the course, if they drop their balloon they have to walk it backwards, when they get from point a to b and back again the whole team shouts "Waiter, there's a head in my soup!" The next person goes and so on until the whole team finishes. The first team done wins!
  • Pin the nose on the jack-o-lantern - post a jack-o-lantern on the wall, blindfold the participant and hand them a nose to put on the jack-o-lantern, the closest wins!
