Monday through Friday, when the alarm clock buzzes 6 AM and I’m warm, comfortable, and lingering out of a good dream, it’s difficult to muster up the energy to drag myself out of bed for work. However, on Saturday and Sunday, when my children wake me at 6 AM, I often can’t wait to begin the day. They are growing up so fast! In a sappy the boys will be 21 before we know it moment, I arranged 5 Family Halloween Games for all of us to enjoy over the weekend.

Ghost Races are organized like a traditional Potato Sack Race, except the white pillow case is decorated like a ghost. I used black felt and tacky glue to create the ghost’s eyes and mouth. The boys loved this game and I appreciated the large amount of energy it burned off.
In Franken-seek, Frankenstein hides while the villagers search for him. (To invite him to a Halloween party, of course!) The boys enjoyed dressing up in this high energy, imaginative game.
Gourd Spoon Challenge
This game is similar to an Egg and Spoon race, but without the mess! I challenged the boys to balance gourds on a wooden spoon as they walked around the mini pumpkin and back.
Pumpkin Ring Toss
First, I created rings out of rope, wooden beads, and hot glue. I then grouped our pumpkins together and invited the boys to try to ring the stems! We all enjoyed the simplicity of this seasonal version of ring toss.
Doughnut Eating Contest
I remember playing this game at a Halloween party when I was a little girl. To set it up, simply string donuts on a line. The first person to finish their doughnut is the winner!
Paired with Halloween Bubble Wands, these five games would be a spooktacular addition to a children’s Halloween Party. Or, simply enjoy them on a lazy afternoon, as my family did!
