Kid Games for Halloween Parties
Last year, I had my first experience being in charge of my my child’s classroom parties and I loved it!
Okay, it was a little stressful at times, but it was so worth it to see how much fun the kids were having. But if there’s one thing I learned, it’s to start early!
I always have loved fall and Halloween-themed parties – my birthday is November 2nd, so I had many birthday parties that fell around that time of year. It was one of my favorite things to come up with Halloween themed games for my guests!
Pinterest didn’t exist back then, but I wish we’d had access to some of these fun Halloween games then.
Jack is back in school, and I’ve once again volunteered to be the classroom mom. While I’m waiting a little bit to see if anyone else volunteers to arrange the games for the Halloween party, I’m excited to have some great EASY games up my sleeve in case I have to arrange a couple of them myself.
Below you will find 15 fall and Halloween party games that are great for children. These ideas are from other blogs, so make sure you click over to get the full instructions
Hopefully, this will help planning a fall party just a little bit easier this year!
Not all of them are exclusively Halloween-themed…but honestly, I just kind of lump the two together 🙂 These are perfect Halloween games as well as classic games that are perfect for a Halloween class party!

Halloween Classroom Games
This is a printable game board I made and always puts me in the Halloween spirit! I LOVE the game “Don’t Eat Pete”, and children love it, too. It is one of our more popular free printables. It’s such a fun party game that can be played with small groups including older kids and younger kids as well. Plus I am all about any excuse to get treats!
Halloween Charades – this would make for a fun Halloween party! And is great for your child’s class party with larger groups and is a great way to get kids involved and up and moving-. Charades is a good game that can be part of a virtual Halloween party and garners friendly competition between students. You can download this at the download link below.
This is a personal favorite of mine. If you are the room mom and planning a classroom Halloween party and just want something simple, poke a pumpkin is a great game for that. It’s always a big hit that doesn’t require much effort and would be a great addition that is perfect for kids of all ages. You just need a foam board, plastic cups, rubber bands, tissue paper, and some fun treats – candy or non-candy-based!
Pumpkin Patch Stomp – This would be a really fun one to do outside. Be aware that some children get started by balloons popping, so make sure to know your audience with this one!
Pin the Spider on the Web – A fun twist on a classic party game. Love this idea!
Halloween Scavenger Hunt – So fun!- it would be great for an outdoor-friendly activity with a Halloween twist. No matter what the class size is it would be a fun Halloween activity for young kids! And this is a good game if you want the children to keep a safe distance from one another. This is something we offer on our website –
We did this at Jack’s Halloween party last year, and it was a huge hit and such a fun activity for the kids. It is good for a smaller group or large group.
Fall Scattegories – My kids love this game! This is a free download we offer – click the download button below to get it!
Pumpkin Toss – This is a really simple game that you can throw together. Make sure to have some extra pumpkins to snack on, since you probably won’t want the kids eating them after they’ve gotten their hands all over them!
Pumpkin Memory – A good memory game is always fun for children! This is a really simple one that you can put together. If you want something more challenging, be sure to check out our Cricut Halloween Memory Game.
Candy Corn Toss – Super inexpensive and kids love this game!
We love Halloween Bingo- it is a cult classic and can also be done for a virtual party- one of a few online Halloween games that is easy to do.
Word and Action Game – This is a great game that is a little educational, too!
