15 Easy Halloween Games For Kids in 2021
Trust me when I say that you don’t even need to spend $10 for playing these games. Just the items that you have in your home and you are good to go. There are two hunts, three poking games, and your kids will have treats after every one of these Halloween games for kids. So, are you ready?
1. Mummy Toilet Paper Race
Divide the kids into two teams. Give each team a toilet paper roll. The kids have to wrap the roll around a member of their team. Whoever does it first wins the game. Mummy Toilet Paper Race is the easiest one in the Halloween games for kids. Your kids will love it and you will also have fun with them. This might even end up being a super fun Halloween costume.
2. Eat Hanging Donuts
If you have never played this game then you have missed out on a lot of fun. Simply, hang the donuts with a strong string from a weighted surface. Make sure the kids are not using their hands to eat the donuts. You would want to play this game after you see your kids enjoying it so much.
3. Ring Toss On Witch Hat
It’s a pretty common game among all the Halloween games for kids. The kids just have to toss a ring on the long and scary witch hats. Whoever scores the most amount of rings, wins the game. You can make DIY witch hats and use paper plates to make rings. Again, a budget-friendly game but a lot of fun.
4. Pop The Balloons
This one of the Halloween games of kids is more like a treat for them because they will get gifts in the end. A teenager can easily set up this game. You have to blow around 30 balloons out of 15 will have some gifts for them (small toys). Stick the balloons on a wall and let the kids pop them with a pin. Whoever pops a balloon with a gift will have that gift and whoever pops an empty balloon will not get anything.
5. Halloween Scavenger Hunt For Kids
You can get a Halloween Scavenger Hunt from a local shop. Place the clues in different corners of your house and let the kids blast the place while tracking them out. You can give treats to whoever finishes the hunt first. Candies and toys will be a great option. To be true it’s my favorite game out of all the Halloween games for kids.
6. DIY Bowling
You’ll need some old plastic bottles, toilet paper, glue, and water. Make a mixture of glue and water. Strip small pieces of toilet paper in the glue mixture and cover the bottles with the wet toilet paper. When the bottles get fully covered in toilet paper, you can also color them. Stick googly eyes on the top of them and play bowling with a small bowl. This sixth game on our list of Halloween games for kids is creative and entertaining.
7. Pumpkin Bowling
We assured you all the Halloween games for kids are DIY and this one is proof of it. You only need a bunch of toilet paper rolls. Make ghost faces on them and make a tower with the rolls. Give kids a nice pumpkin and let them break the tower with all their might. Easy, right?
8. Eat and Guess
Halloween will lose its essence if there isn’t a pinch of spookiness in everything. Wrap a tie or cloth around the eyes of the person. Give them something to eat, like eyeball candy, or grapes. You’ll be amazed to see their scared expressions and they have to guess what they just ate. I know, these Halloween games for kids are getting super interesting.
9. Catch The Balloons
This is my personal favorite game for Halloween. Last year, my Halloween was all about scary Halloween zoom backgrounds. Kids love balloons and I am sure your kiddo also has an enormous amount of fun with them. You can blow some balloons, give your kids some cones (you can make them easily), and let the kids catch the balloons. Sounds easy? You have no idea how much your kid will enjoy playing this one of the Halloween games for kids.
10. Guess The Movie | Halloween Charades
A perfect game to play with kids and adults. You know the rule of dumb charades. Just like you guess the movies in dumb charades, now you have to guess the horror movies or cartoons with your kids. Trust me, it won’t be as easy as it sounds.
11. Poke the Cups | Trick Or Treat
Just like ‘Pop The Baloons’ this time you are going to make the kids play with cups. It is super easy. Just take some plastic cups, fill them either with some treat or with chits that have something funny written on them (get creative people!). Cover the top of the cups with pumpkin-colored cloths and keep it in a place with rubber bands. Now, stick the cups on a board and let the kids poke the cups. Whoever gets the treats becomes lucky!
12. Halloween Themed Slime with Eyeballs
Who can forget the kids’ favorite slime? It is the most wanted toy among the kids and I am sure they even have got it stuck in their heads at least once. However, this time it will be different. Firstly, you’ll give your kids an orange or dark-colored creepy slime, and then they will add googly eyes in them to make it extra creepy.
13. Stomp The Balloon Patch
Inflate orange-colored balloons and fill them with candies and treats. the kids will stomp over the balloons and burst them with their feet. If they get lucky they’ll have a lot of treats and candies and that’s exactly what every kid wants after playing all the Halloween games for kids.
14. The Googly Eyes Hunt
