While Halloween has officially come and gone, it's always nice to keep a folder of inspiration for next year's classroom celebration! Craft, snack food, decoration, and party favor ideas are easy to come by, but there seems to be a gap where party games are concerned. If you want the right mixture of fun and skill building, here are a few suggestions for a festive Halloween party!
Pop Goes the Pumpkin
In this twist of the carnival favorite found at Martha Stewart, students attempt to pop balloons full of candy and confetti!
Witch's Eye Relay
With ping pong balls painted to resemble witch's eyes - like the ones found at Crafty Sisters - have students race around obstacles in the classroom while trying to keep the 'eyes' on plastic spoons.
Pumpkin Face Race
Prepare several jack-o-lantern face cutouts from Wonderfoam® sheets - like the ones found here at Chica and Jo. Place Velcro dots or double-sided tape on the pumpkin and face pieces then, dividing students into teams and arming them with drinking straws, have teams race to create jack-o-lanterns using the straws to 'suck up' the pieces and place them on the pumpkin.
Halloween Can Toss
Here's another carnival favorite found at Better Homes & Gardens. Students will have a blast tossing bean bags into the Halloween-themed cans.
Halloween I-Spy Game
Students will have fun 'racing' to find each of the hidden items in these i-spy bottles designed by Marylea of Pink and Green Mama.
By 'dressing up' simple plastic soda bottles like these at Ramblings of a Crazy Woman and providing a soft ball, your students will have hours of bowling fun!
Candy Corn Estimation
Mix in some math fun during your Halloween celebration with this carnival favorite from Better Homes & Gardens.
Don't Eat A Jack-O-Lantern
Jamie at The Crafting Chicks designed this fun spin-off of Don't Eat Pete. Your students will have fun earning the sweet treats!
Have fun party planning for next year with these amazing Halloween games!
