If you need some great FESTIVE ideas for kids Halloween party games, you are covered!

Here are 10 fun and quick interactive Halloween game ideas your kiddo can enjoy doing at home with their friends, family, and classmates at school.

Plus, a few of the game ideas your child can have a blast doing solo or just with you. 🙂

It’s Mummy Time!


This is a quick, budget-friendly, and easy DIY activity you can whip up at home because everyone usually has spare kids-halloween-party-gamestoilet paper lying around.

Earlier this year when we went into quarantine lockdown because of COVID-19, toilet paper was like the holy grail and it was super difficult to get! Who would have thought?

Talk about heightened anxiety that you may be without toilet paper makes you second guess mother nature, do I turn to leaves? Ok, so that thought NEVER transpired, thank goodness. 🙂

Now that quarantine has passed (HALLELUJAH), hopefully you have no issues getting toilet paper. 🙂

What You Need

  1. Toilet paper

How The Game Works

You will want two to three people per team (1 wrapper and 1 mummy or 2 wrappers and 1 mummy). The wrapper will wrap the toilet paper around the other team member and whoever finishes the roll of toilet paper first WINS.

Takeaway Tip

When kids use a thicker toilet paper that isn’t super thin, they will have an easier time being able to wrap their ‘mummy’ teammate. If you want the game to be more challenging, then thin toilet paper is the way to go.

It’s super easy to put together too.

Tie the donut up in string and hang it from a tree so it dangles down far enough for the kids to be able to eat the donut. Have the kids start at the same time eating their donut off the string and whoever finishes first wins.

Takeaway Tip

Be prepared for the sugar high. 🙂

Halloween Candy Guessing Game


This is a fun and easy game where kids can guess how much Halloween candy they believe to be in the jar.

  3. Notecards (optional)
  4. Pen or pencil (optional)

You could also have each child write on a note card their name and the number of candy they believe to be in the jar. Have them put the note card into the shoe box for you to tally up to determine who is the closest or guessed the number of candy correctly.

You can change up the theme and have kids pass around a gord, apple, or anything you can think of that’s related to fall time or Halloween.

Monster Freeze Dance


What You Need

  1. Halloween music
  2. Device to play your music on

How The Game Works

As you play Halloween music have your child and their friends dance around like monsters! When the music stops, have the kids freeze in their BEST monster position. Whoever moves first is out. The game continues until one kid is left.

Takeaway Tip

Here are some great Halloween songs to do the ‘Monster Freeze’ dance to; “The Monster Mash” by Bobbi Pickett, “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker Jr., “Monster Boogie” by Laurie Berkner Band, “Purple People Eater” by Sheb Wooley, or “I’ll Put A Spell On You” by Bette Midler (from the movie Hocus Pocus).

For your viewing pleasure … 🙂

Halloween Ring Toss


This is a classic kids game to enjoy with your family or your child’s friends and can be played by kids of all ages!

What You Need

  1. Tossing rings
  2. Halloween object to toss the rings onto

How The Game Works

Standing away from your target, toss a ring to try to get it onto the target. Whoever gets the most rings on the target wins!

Takeaway Tip

If you don’t feel like making your own ring toss game, you can always purchase a set which is relatively inexpensive (under $20 bucks).

The suggested set below is around $15 and comes with 2 inflatable Halloween targets (a spider and witch’s hat) to toss your rings onto. The set also comes with a pump and 12 tossing rings; 6 rings you can inflate and 6 plastic rings.

I personally like that the set includes inflatable rings because that helps a child who is younger or who has mobility issues in their hands be able to grasp onto the ring easier.
