6 Spooky Halloween Games

6 Spooky Halloween Games

Planning a Halloween party? We’ve already given you great ideas for Halloween food and a free printable spooky garland to decorate. Now its time for the party games!

Bobbing for Apples

A classic game but a good one. You just need a bowl/bucket of water and some apples. Let each child try to get a apple just using their teeth. You may want to have a few towels on hand to dry off and cover the floor.



Bobbing for Marshmallows

This one is a little bit messier but so much fun. You need plain flower and white marshmallows. Cover a large plate in flour and mix in the marshmallows. Each child has to find a marshmallow in the flour just using their teeth.


Halloween Mystery Boxes. 

We love this game from Christina’s Adventures. Lots of fun to be had with these boxes.

Wrap The Mummy

To play this you need lots of toilet roll! Spilt the children into two groups. One of them will be the mummy and the other children have to wrap them in tissue. The first group to cover their mummy wins.
