Games & Activities for a Halloween Party for Kids

Body Parts Mystery Box

mystery box

Find a cardboard box that is approximately 6-8 inches high. The length depends on how many mystery items you would like to place in the box. I would suggest four to eight items.

Decorate the box any way you'd like. Cut holes in the top of the box for the children to reach their hands into. Label each hole with what the contents are. Use Cool Whip containers or something similar to hold your mystery items.

Mystery Item Ideas: Use any or all these ideas.

  • Eyeballs: peeled grapes or olives
  • Tongue: banana peel or canned green chili (whole)
  • Intestines: spaghetti (with a splash of vegetable oil to keep them flexible)
  • Teeth: candy corn, corn nuts or broken pieces of chalk
  • Fingers: cocktail wieners (cut off one end)
  • Bones: chicken bones, cleaned and dried
  • Hair: bean sprouts or wet yarn
  • Heart: peach half (canned)
  • Ear: dried apricot
  • Skin: square cut from a flour tortilla, brushed with oil
  • Brain: large wet sponge


Witches Hand

A fast and easy project for the kids to make during the party!

witchesSupplies Needed:

Place a piece of candy corn in each finger tip of the glove to represent finger nails. Fill the rest of the glove with puffed popcorn. You may have to break the popcorn into pieces to fit into the fingers of the glove. Tie the end of the glove with a rubber band. You now have a witches hand!


Pin the Nose on the Jack 'o Lantern

Draw and color a pumpkin on a large sheet of paper. Draw a face on the pumpkin to make a Jack 'o Lantern, excluding the nose. Tape the Jack 'o Lantern to a wall or door at chest level to the children.

Make noses out of construction paper for each child. Place double stick tape on the back of each nose.

Have one child at a time stand approximately six feet from the Jack 'o Lantern. Cover the child's eyes with a bandana, soft towel or scarf. Turn the child three times and then face them in the direction of the Jack 'o Lantern. The child tries to place the nose as close to the correct spot as they can. The child who comes closest wins the game.


Halloween Candy Toss

Give a child approximately five pieces of candy and see how many they can toss into the bucket.

Have a prize available for the winner.
