Children Halloween Party Games and Craft Ideas

Children Halloween Party Games and Craft Ideas

Kids love to dress up as their favourite characters at
Halloween, but these days you might not feel comfortable
letting them out and about to go Trick or Treating. Why not
do something a little different this year and let your kids
invite their friends over for a Halloween Party? They can
all get dressed up and enjoy some spooky fun in the safety
of your home.

Here are some ideas for party games and Halloween craft
activities to keep them entertained.

Halloween party games

1. The not so spooky Halloween parade

The little ones will want to show off their costumes so put
on some mussy and have the kids put on a Halloween costume
parade. Get them to do their best dance moves to the music
and ensure the adults whoop, cheer, and look suitable

2. The Trick or Treat bonanza

Cut up some paper strips and on half of them write the word
“treat”, on the others write out a number of tricks, such as
“hop on one leg”, “growl like a lion” or “sing their
favourite song”.

Put all of the paper pieces into a hat or a pillowcase and
hide some sweets and candies around the room.

At the party ask each child to draw a piece of paper from
the hat. They then have to perform the trick or search for
the treats.

Halloween craft ideas

When the kids have run off all their energy on the party
games have them sit around the table for some quiet craft
time. Here are some ideas to get you started:

1. Not so spooky Halloween mask making

Have a supply of white paper plates, glue, ribbons, felt
pens and other craft items ready and ask the kids to make
their own masks. They can design them to be as fun or as
spooky as they like.

When everyone is done with their creations pierce a hole in
each side of the plate and attach a piece of elastic so the
kids can wear their masks, and pose for a group photograph!

2. The great Halloween loot collection

Kids love to take loot bags home from parties so let them
decorate their own bags. You’ll need the same craft supplies
as for the mask making, but this time they’ll need brown
paper bags to decorate.

When the decorating is complete let the children go back to
playing and fill the loot bags with candy and Halloween
themed treats, when the party is over they can take their
loot bags home.
