Halloween Games

D.I.Y. Halloween

I love everything about Fall.  This year I want to have a Harvest festival.  I have a list of games and activities to do with the kids.  Hope you guys enjoy!

Fall Festival 005

  1. Pumpkin painting:  For all the little ones and the not so little ones.  Now that you have finished picking out your pumpkins from the pumpkin patch, you can paint the pumpkins.  All you need is paint to either paint on a face instead of carving one out or you can paint on any Halloween theme like a moon or a cat.
  2. Harvest Bowl:  Draw ghost faces on the toilet paper with a black marker and use a small pumpkin to use as the ball.  Roll it to knock down the toilet paper rolls.  Try stacking some to make it more fun.
  3. Pin the nose on a jack-o-lantern or Pin the tail on the cat .
  4. Bobbing for apples.
