Party, Party, Party Games

We love to throw kids’ parties around here. My kids have recently wanted to have their birthday parties at gymnastics, Tae Kwan Do, or bowling alleys. That’s all good and well, but I was thrilled when they wanted to have a Halloween party for their friends at our house.

Here are a few of the games we played, in case you’re looking for ways to entertain your little ghouls and boos!


We wrapped empty water bottles in construction paper and tied them with bakers’ twine to make bowling pins.  Then we used a smallish round gourd as a bowling ball. Fun!


We tossed plastic acorns into these buckets for points. And I got to use my Silhouette to make the numbers, so that’s a win.


We played Boo-go with this inexpensive game set from Target.


Even my little monsters balked at putting their faces into water with GERMS in it, so we suspended apples with twine and they “bobbed” for them…it was just as entertaining, and no one ended up wet or swapping germs.


I forgot to take photos of “Pin the Hat on the Witch,” but these small containers of Monster Slime served as prizes. Yes, everyone ended up getting a prize for something or other!

Partygoers also decorated spooky bookmarks from a craft kit, and then we ended the party with a pinata…I think that counts as a game, since the candy is the prize!


I was a little worried the kids would be bored, but we hardly had time for the things we did…and we still ran over on time while making s’mores!

However you celebrate, I hope you have a frighteningly fun time!
