12 Free Halloween Games & Activities for Kids
Throwing a Halloween party with children this year? There are so many ways you can add some Halloween spookiness to your festivities! Check out this list of our favorite free fun Halloween party games – they’re a must this Halloween season.
We love Halloween at our house. There’s something about dressing up in costumes and getting candy that brings out the kid in many adults.
We don’t really get into the creepy, scary side of Halloween like some people do. As a couple, we never watch scary movies or go to haunted houses. We aren’t really big fans of scaring ourselves. Halloween also has some evil, occult parts to it that we don’t really delve into at all.
Instead, one thing our kids love to do with is us at Halloween is read fun Halloween books and decorating with spooky and silly ghosts, spiders, bats, and more.
We also really love to play fun Halloween games! You can do these as a family or as part of a Halloween party. These activities are mostly geared towards kids, but with the right guests, you could have fun doing them with an adult Halloween party as well!
