Fun Halloween Game Ideas
Halloween Anatomy Challenge
A great game to play with your kids is the Halloween Anatomy Challenge Game. Create cards with the name of different body parts on them. Hide different foods in a box or bowl and have the kids feel the “food” and guess which body part it goes to. Some examples include:
- Peeled grapes or canned mushrooms for eyeballs
- Lunchmeat / bologna for a tongue
- Canned pear for a stomach
- Noodles for intestines or veins
- Pickles for toes or fingers
- Cauliflower coated w/ slime or Jell-O for a brain
- You can even make it a contest with the kids for them to create their own body parts and then see who can guess what they are!
Hide mini-pumpkins around the house and go on a pumpkin hunt. After all the pumpkins are found, decorate them with markers and make silly faces.
Once it gets dark, go outside in your backyard with a flashlight. Try to find as many “creatures of the night” (insects, lizards, spiders) as you can. These animals are called nocturnal, because they sleep during the day and are awake at night.
Once you have trick or treated and collected all that yummy candy, see how fast you can sort it into different piles. You can sort your candy by type (chocolate, gum, etc.), package color or size. Count how many types of candy you have in each pile. Challenge a friend to this sorting game to see who can organize their candy the fastest.
