School Halloween party games and crafts that are easy can be hard to find! I created a party pack of Halloween games and crafts that kids in your child’s classroom will love.
These Halloween party games and crafts will make it easy for you to volunteer in your child’s school fall party and look like an amazing parent!
Most of the school Halloween parties that I have volunteered at have started by dividing the kids into about 4 groups. Each parent volunteer works one of the stations and the kids rotate around the stations in their groups. Each station takes about 10 minutes.
These Halloween party games and crafts all work really well for stations and are set up to be games and crafts that kids from Kindergarten to 5th grade would enjoy.
School Halloween Party GAMES
1. Guess How Many
Guess How Many is a fun game that is easy to prep. All you have to do is fill a jar with an object like candy corn or spider rings and have the kids guess how many are in there. Give each of the children a card to write them guess on. The winner can get a prize.
2. Tic Tac Toe
Tic Tac Toe is another easy game that most of the kids will already know how to play. This game is great because the kids can keep playing it for the amount of time provided in that station. One of the kids can be the apples and one can be the pumpkins.
Bingo is a game kids love! The fun thing about this Bingo game is that it moves fast. Each of the kids will have each of the items on the cards you call. This means that pretty quickly someone will have a Bingo win. Also, it ensures that each of the kids should listen at all times.
This bowling game is soo easy to set up! I have also provided printable pumpkin cards that you can cut out and tape to cups. The “bowling ball” can be a tiny pumpkin. It is a really cute game and very fun. Just remind the kids to roll the “ball” gently!
5. Knock out Leaves
I created this dice game because it is super easy to prep and the kids will enjoy playing a game they have never played before. Each person in a pair of kids will roll one of the dice. The person with the highest number gets to color in one of their leaves on their paper. The person with the most colored in leaves wins.
School Halloween Party CRAFTS
Most of the school Halloween parties I have volunteered at have had a parent that chooses a craft that CANNOT be accomplished in 10 MINUTES. The kids are excited and in party mode and so most crafts will be fun. Don’t look for super amazing crafts that the parents are going to want to hang on the wall!! 🙂
1. Candy Corn Tissue Paper Craft
All you need to do to prep for this craft is print a candy corn sheet for each child and cut out some squares of orange, yellow, and white tissue paper. The kids can glue the tissue paper squares onto their own candy corn sheet.
2. Play Dough Mat or Coloring Page
You can choose how you use this craft! You can have the kids use the print off sheet as a play dough mat just on paper. Or, you can put the sheets in plastic sheet protectors so that they can be used again and again.
Or, you can print a sheet off for each child to use as a coloring page. The children can use crayons, colored pencils, or markers.
3. Beaded Pumpkins
Who doesn’t love a good beading project? The kids can put orange pony beads on green pipe cleaners and then put them in a circle to look like pumpkins. A great craft project that can get done quickly.
4. Yarn Hanging (for older children)
This craft is more ambitious and will require more time. You will want to cut pieces of yarn that are about 7 inches long and give each child around 10 pieces.
The kids can tie the yarn around the popsicle stick so that half of the string hangs over one side and half over the other. Look at the picture so it makes more sense.
Then the children can write their names on one of the name frames and hang it from their project.
5. Falling Leaves
You can print out a leaf for each child and they rip or cut out small pieces of tissue paper. The kids can glue the tissue paper to their leave.
The SUPER FUN thing about this project is that you can give the teacher a bulletin board idea to use in November.
The FREE bonus printable in the pack has the wording “Falling for a good book!” that you can print and cut out. The teacher can put this wording on the bulletin board.
Also, the FREE bonus comes with little printables leaves the teacher can use to have the children write down their favorite books to complete the bulletin board!
BONUS – Free Bulletin Board for November!
Your child’s teacher will love if you print out the free bulletin board printables for a bulletin board for November. See the information in the Falling Leaves craft above for more information on how to use it.
