10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - Tipsaholic

 

Halloween is a favorite among kids – all the costumes, candy and fun crafts and treats give them lots to love!  If you’re hosting a Halloween kids’ party this year, are in charge of games for your child’s classroom or just want to play some fun games at home, there are tons of Halloween themed games you can find around the internet.  Here are our top 10 fun Halloween games for kids to get you started.

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games1. Pumpkin Toss Game – All you need is a cardboard box and some poster board to create this fun target toss game.  Use orange ping pong balls or tennis balls for ammunition – or if you’re playing outside you could even use tiny pumpkins!

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games2. Ghost Cup Stack – Turn inexpensive plastic cups into ghosts with a black sharpie!  It takes literally seconds.  Then you can play the game one of two ways.  Divide into teams and race to see which team can stack their cups into a pyramid the fastest, OR use a beanbag to try and knock the stack down!  (The link above has tons more ghost party ideas for you as well.)

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games3. Skeleton Scavenger Hunt – The scavenger hunt described at the link used plastic skeletons broken into pieces and hidden around the neighborhood, then snapped back together as they were found.  But you could do the exact same thing using cardstock skeletons you’ve created yourself and hiding them anywhere you’d like.  Then use tape to put the bones together.

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games4. Unwrap the Mummy – This is pretty popular as a birthday party game (minus the mummy theme) and kids love it!  Wrap up Halloween toys and candy in a roll of toilet paper, glue on googly eyes and let the kids at it!  Each child takes a turn unwrapping until they discover a prize, then pass it to the next child who continues.  Everyone wins!

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games5. Web Walk – Don’t tell the kids, but they’re actually learning as they play this game!  Tape off a web on your floor with painter’s tape.  Scatter spiders all throughout the web.  The kids have to walk the lines of the web and pick up all the spiders to win, but if they step off the web or fall they have to start over at the beginning!  Make it more difficult by adding “ghost” obstacles!  Encourage problem solving, critical thinking and gross motor skills!

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games6. Witch Hat Ring Toss – Repurpose your diving rings for this toss – which is made with paper cones and foam board.  It’s inexpensive to create and you’re kids will have a blast matching the rings to the buckles on the hat and trying to get them all!

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games7. Lair of the Spider Queen – Make an obstacle course in your hallway with white streamers – the spider’s web!  Decorate the hallway and streamers with small spiders (and a big spider queen if you have one!).  Then the kids can have a fun time trying to make it through the web without knocking down any webs.

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games8. Tin Can Bowling – Paint and decorate empty tin cans headed for recycling to look like Halloween monsters.  The kids can help you for even more fun crafting time!  Then set them up as bowling pins and take turns using a tennis ball to knock them all down.

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games9. Pin the Bowtie on Mr. Bones – Use the free template to cut out Mr. Bones the skeleton.  Create bows out of ribbons and add glue dots or double sided tape to the back.  Blindfold the kids and have them pin on the bow tie!

 

10 Fun Halloween Games for Kids - tipsaholic, #Halloween, #halloweengames, #kidgames, #games10. Snake Eyes – Decorate water bottles with snake eye lids, then hide matching pairs of Halloween themed prizes in them.  Place them in the mailing tube structure and let the kids take turns pulling two randomly.  If the prizes match, they get to keep them!

Art education is perhaps one of the most undervalued curricula in modern public school systems.  Visual arts has been the focus of many academic studies, the results of which suggest that art is crucially linked to the development of core human emotions such as passion, empathy, love, sincerity and happiness.  Art also helps kids develop communication and self-expression skills.  It leads to higher performance across a range of educational disciplines, and encourages self-discipline, time-mangement, imagination, innovation and spacial reasoning.  For very young kids, the practice of hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, language skills, and connectivity is invaluable.  If the thought of tackling art with your kids scares you, don’t be intimidated!  How do we best supplement the art education they receive at school?  With hands-on application of course!  Here are 8 genius ideas for easy art activities they’ll love!

 

1. Life Size Self Portraits.  You’ll need an extra large sheet of paper for this project!  Kids will have a ball creating an artistic version of themselves!  Lay the paper on the floor and trace around your pre-schooler.  Have them paint or draw themselves.  You could make this as interactive and detailed as you want – use construction paper, fabric, yarn, ribbons and glue along with crayons and paper.  You can find instructions here.  Depending on your child’s age, you can include a short description and explanation of the self-portrait and a bit about the history to round out their art lesson.

 

2. Tasty Color Mixing.  Introduce kids to the primary and secondary colors with this delicious activity!  All you need is vanilla frosting, food coloring, plastic knives and sugar cookies.  Help the kids make frosting in different colors, mixing the food coloring to create new shades.  Explain how mixing two specific colors will always yield the same result.  In the end, you get to eat your creations for snack, so this is a surefire favorite!  Get fell details here.

 

3. Marble Art.  Creating marble art is a great introduction to Jackson Pollock and his contemporaries!  You can show kids examples (Like this one) of this famous artist, then create your own look-alikes!  Simply place a piece of paper in a tray or bin (that is easily washed).  Place small dabs of different colored paint here and there – use tempera or other washable/non-toxic paint – and throw in some marbles.  The kids can tip the tray this way and that, making the marbles run through the paint and creating trails of color, splatters, and fun mixtures.  This is one kids of many ages will love, as the groove, sway and flip those balls around on the tray!

 

4. Wax Resist Watercolor.  A wax resist watercolor painting is easy to create, and fun for kids of all ages.  Here’s a full tutorial for making a monet-inspired wax resist painting.  Simply have them color a picture using a white crayon on a white piece of paper.  Nothing shows up!  Then have them use watercolors to paint over the paper – all of the white lines will appear!  Preschoolers and kindergartners will think it’s like magic!  If you’d like to include some information about impressionism, here’s a good resource for a slimmed down summary.)

 

5. Construction Paper Collage.  A collage is a simple and fun form of artistic expression.  Little hands love the freedom involved in cutting and pasting to their hearts content.  All you need is construction paper, child-safe scissors and glue or glue sticks.  Have your children cut shapes from different colors of paper.  Then layer them however they’d like on a blank piece of black or white paper, gluing the pieces down one at a time.  This doubles as great cutting practice as well as a study of Matisse.  If your little one becomes frustrated with scissors, it’s a good idea to have some shapes already cut as backup.  You can find instructions for this Matisse-centered art project and information about the artist here.

 

6. Fruit and Veggie Stamps.  Printmaking is tons of fun for kids of all ages.  It’s also a well-known art form with famous printmakers including Andy Warhol, Hans Baldung, Ernst Haeckel, and Hokusai.  (Here’s a link to images of famous prints, so you have an idea).  To introduce kids to printmaking, all you really need is stamps and paints!  For preschoolers and kindergartners, printing with produce is an incredible experience.  They’ll be intrigued and amazed that the food they eat can make such fun shapes!  Gather together a few different vegetables, a large piece of paper and some tempera or other washable paint.  Some good ideas for vegetables are: apples, bell peppers, smaller peppers like poblanos, potatoes, and okra.  Cut the vegetables in half to create an interesting edge.  Have your child dip the end in paint of their color choice, then stamp it on their paper.  Here’s an awesome example of okra printing with a tutorial!
