Top Ten Halloween Games and Activities


We love Halloween!  We start to plan at least a month in advance of what costumes the kids will have and how we'll decorate the house, and we get so into the spirit of things that we just want to play Halloween games and learn with Halloween props every day.  So I've rounded up our top ten Halloween games and activities to share with you!

We love this really easy Halloween activity using some cute pumpkin buckets, the Halloween ball toss is such a fun way to play with things that you've already got in the house for Halloween.

This Halloween match up from Happy Hooligans is so cute and I could definitely see it keeping the kids busy for ages, and even suggesting new Halloween images that you could make for them to match up.

My kids are going to absolutely love this water squirt Halloween game from Mommas Fun World.  Playing with water, counting, stacking and with a pumpkin theme, what more could they possibly want?

We love bowling games, so of course I'm very excited to try out this ghost bottle bowling game from No Time for Flashcards!  The bowling pins and the ball are Halloween themed and the kids even get to help to make the pins, I love it!

Last year we made a witches brew, Ethan absolutely loved this simple way to play outside in costume and mix up something fun!

Clearly I do love a good throwing game as I've also added Pumpkin Chuckin' from B-Inspired Mama to my list, as she geniously uses rolls of toilet paper to make the cutest little pumpkins to throw.  And this Ghost Toss from Mess for Less which uses balloons in a rather clever way and has a fantastic ghost shaped target!

We're very into Lego in our house, so I think that this Halloween Lego game from Teach Mama is right up our street.  I can't wait to get creative with our Lego building for Halloween!

If you're looking for a bit of pretend play to prepare little ones for Halloween, we loved doing this trick or treat imaginary play to get Ethan excited and ready for his first proper Halloween.

And for a bit of sensory play we're definitely going to be trying these Halloween jelly hands from Adventures of Adam.  Ethan and Ivy are going to love making a mess to get the treasures of the jelly hand, and I'll definitely be following the tips for making the jelly set better.
