Parents seek kid friendly Halloween party games for their young ones to create a fantastic Halloween experience. Parents are not the only ones looking for fun, safe Halloween party games to play indoors. Teachers are always on the lookout to entertain their students during their Halloween party. As a teacher, I would like to share a few simple games that students have enjoyed over the years.
Pass the Eyeball
Pass the eyeball uses ping pong balls decorated like eyes. Prepare the eyeball prior to the game. Draw an iris on the ping pong ball along with red zigzag lines to look like the eyeball is stressed.
Divide the group of children into two or more teams. Give a plastic spoon to each player. Arrange the groups in line designating the front and back.
The object of the game is to pass the eyeball from the front of the line to the back using only the spoons. No hands allowed. The first team to pass the eyeball through their entire line is the winner. If the eyeball drops, it must be passed to the first person in line to start over.
Make the game more interesting by giving each student a glove or rubber hand to wear on their dominant hand.
Mummy to Go
Speed and wrapping ability makes Mummy to Go a fun and fast paced game. The object of the game is to un-wrap a roll of toilet paper as quickly as possible. The catch is the roll must be wrapped around a portion of the child’s body such as their forearm, torso or leg.
Prior to the party, purchase an inexpensive roll of toilet paper for each child. Unroll the toilet paper and tape a prize to the end. Re-wrap the roll.
Each child is a winner because a prize is attached to each roll. I have always given the first child to complete the unwrapping a separate prize.
Prior to the party, bowl one cup of macaroni noodles, drain and store. Prepare the brain stew prior to the party by pouring one to two large cans of tomato juice in a punch bowl or large mixing bowl. Add the macaroni to the tomato juice and stir.
Give each child a small straw. The object of the game is to place the straw on a noodle and remove it from the tomato juice with suction only. Time the game so each child has one minute to remove as many noodles from the juice as possible. The one with the most noodles wins.
Individualize the game by pouring tomato juice in coffee cups or cereal bowls, one for each child. Add a few noodles to the tomato juice and stir. Place one in front of each child.
