Top Halloween games for kids

These games for kids are fun, not too scary for the little ones and help pass the time and burn off all that extra energy!

  1. Guess what? This classic Halloween game never fails to get everyone laughing. Prepare some gooey ingredients in a bowl or container and cover them with a cloth. Have fun labelling the bowls with spooky names, for example “eyeballs” (peeled grapes), “witches hair” (bunches of string) or “zombie’s brains” (spaghetti). Have the kids line up and get their hands dirty to guess what’s really in the bowl.
  2. Pass the pumpkin. This one is simple and not too scary for young kids. Prepare some beautifully decorated pumpkins. Get everyone to sit in a circle and pass a pumpkin around to Halloween music. When the music stops, whichever child is holding the pumpkin is “out” but gets to keep the pumpkin. The game continues until there is a “winner”, who gets a prize.
  3. How many lollies are in the jar? This is great game to start off the party. Fill up a big jar with lollies and get everyone to guess how many there are inside. At the end, whoever guessed closest to the correct number keeps the jar.
  4. Ghost stories. Sit everyone down and give each person a pen and piece of paper. Start off the scary story with one sentence and move around the group letting each child add a new sentence to keep the story going.
  5. Zombie tag. Just like the classic “tip” or “tag” with a Halloween twist. Nominate a “zombie” and let the kids spread out. The “zombie” chases the other kids and whoever gets “tagged” turns into a zombie, too. The last kid standing is the winner. This one works best with a bigger group of kids.

Top Halloween party games for adults and older kids

These games will get your guests thinking, laughing and will set the scene for a fun evening.

  1. Murder mystery. This role-playing game is a classic and works best if you prepare with a boxed game set or a scenario. Everyone takes a role and at least one person is the “murderer”. Each person gets a character booklet, a set of questions to ask and scenarios to move through until the “murderer” is discovered.
  2. Halloween trivia. Scour the Internet for inspiration and make up a set of questions about horror movies, folk tales and other Halloween topics.
  3. Ghost story. The “ghost story” can be really creative and intricate depending on the group. If you’re planning a party ahead of time, send out the opening sentence to your party guests and have them come prepared with their own ghost stories for a more elaborate result.
  1. Would you survive a horror film? Write up some common scenarios from horror movies and multiple choice actions to get out of the situation. Read out each scenario and get everyone to choose what they would do.

For example: You are running away from a murderous maniac who is reigning havoc on your weekend getaway. Where do you run?

a) To the car, which you drive to the nearest highway;
b) To the tool shed, where you equip yourself with various heavy-duty equipment to defeat the murderer and save your friends; or
c) Into a dark forest, alone.

Whoever gets the most “correct answers” lives and wins.
