  • Method: #2: Use several small plastic pumpkins(Less messy)

    Playing the Game:
  • Place the pumpkins a couple feet away.
  • Give each player ten to twenty pennies.
  • Every time a penny goes into the pumpkin, a piece of candy is won.

Bobbing for Apples
  • A traditional Halloween kids party games for kids.
  • You'll need a large tub filled with water, and plenty of apples tipped in to bob around on the surface.
  • Each child tries to grab an apple with their mouth from the tub.
  • It's messy, it's wet... so you might need to wrap a towel round their shoulders first, particularly if they're wearing a Halloween costume!
  • You can dish out prizes for success, or just for effort!
  • And if bobbing for the apples is a bit too hard for the smaller ones - why not get a net and let them fish for the apples?

Spider Web Prizes
  • You will need lengths of black yarn and a plastic or toy spider and a small prize for each child.
  • To set up, tie one end of the yarn to a prize and hide the prize, then walk around the room twisting the yarn around furniture.
  • Cut the yarn and attach a spider to the other end within sight in the middle of the room.
  • Repeat with the other prizes.
  • Each child finds a spider and then follows it to a prize.

Candy Hunt
  • Similar to an egg hunt, wrap little packages of candy corn in netting or use other candy and hide them for the children to find.
