Easy Halloween Party Games and Craft Ideas for Kids|/274488/halloween-games/@center/1006806/halloween-parties|269871

If your child has an October birthday, it's the perfect opportunity to throw a Halloween-themed party, or you may simply want to take Halloween night up a notch with party games for the kids. From easy DIY's to affordable pre-made party games, here are some great Halloween games and activities for kids. *This content contains affiliate links. Pictured above: Pop Goes the Pumpkin Halloween balloon dart game by Martha Stewart. Pumpkin Decorating: Buy enough mini pumpkins for each guest to have his or her own. Supply each guest with craft supplies like stickers, googly eyes, paint/markers, etc. If it's a costume party, make sure the supplies are all washable or provide t-shirts or craft aprons for guests. For pre-packaged pumpkin decorating, use pumpkin face stickers (pictured right), and to make painting prep and cleanup quick and easy, use glitter paint pens. *Note: The pumpkin face stickers do not include the pumpkin. You can use them with real mini pumpkins or supply orange craft paper so they can cut out paper pumpkins. The Jack-O-Lantern stickers with paper pumpkin cut-outs is a great Halloween craft for a large crowd or a class party.

2. Graveyard Golf: Set up a mini putt putt golf course with foam tombstones and plastic cups turned on their sides. Use a bone prop as the putter and a plastic eyeball as the ball. You can get the tombstones at Dollar Tree for just $1 a piece. Secure them firmly to the ground with bamboo skewers. Pierce the bottom of each gravestone with two skewers, halfway onto the skewers, then stake the exposed part of the skewers into the ground.

3. Pumpkin Bowling: I've seen some great posts for DIY Halloween bowling that involve crafting ghosts out of paper towels or stacked pumpkins out of reused plastic containers, but if you're pressed for time, simply use real pumpkins for the pins and the ball. It works just as well, and the kids have just as much fun.

4. Bobbing for Apples: Bring back this traditional Halloween game. If you want to avoid the ick factor and prevent spreading germs, swap out one big basin for small ones. Each child can have his or her own small bowl filled with 3-4 small apples, and the person who gets all of the apples out first (using only their teeth) wins.

5. A Halloween Pinata: Nothing says Halloween like candy. You can find pinatas in all kinds of Halloween designs, like a witch, Frankenstein, or a bat.

6. A Candy Bar: Have the children make their own party favors by arranging various candies in jars and giving them each a Halloween treat bag to fill with whatever they want. Use Halloween-themed candy and Halloween bottle labels on the candy jars for a festive touch.

7. Witch Pitch Game: There are all kinds of candy pitch and bean bag toss games you can do for Halloween. However most of them involve quite a bit of crafting. For a simple yet equally fun version, simply use a black poster board and mini witch cauldrons. Place the poster board flat on the floor and arrange several mini cauldrons on top of it. Have guests toss pieces of candy and try to make it into the cauldrons. Let them keep each piece that makes it into a cauldron. If you're not into crafting, you can get a pre-made Halloween bean bag toss game for around $20.

8. The Mummy Wrap Game: Pair guest into teams of two or three and give them each two rolls of toilet paper. Each team wraps one member up to resemble a mummy. You can choose a winner by the quickest or the best, or by both.

9. A Monster Mash: It's simple--put on some fun Halloween dance music and let the kids have a dance party. Especially if you have mostly girl guests, this activity will keep them busy for a long time!

10. Witch-Hat Ring Toss: This is another game I've seen as DIY projects, but for the busy mom who needs something easier, you can provide the same game using real witch hats from Dollar Tree and rings made from large glow stick necklaces.
