I love Halloween! It’s such a unique holiday that all ages, toddler to adults, love to celebrate.

This year I have a 4 year old (kindergarten student) and 2 year old (Toddler Room at Preschool) at home for Halloween and asked a few of my fellow mom bloggers for ideas on how to celebrate and they did not disappoint!

Some of these will only appeal to my daughter at four, but I think so many can be slightly tweaked for my younger son.

Before we get to the games, consider picking up some fun Halloween themed game prizes for kids.

Halloween game prizes for kids

  1. Glow sticks (adding glow sticks to a bath for a ‘spooky’ bath is so fun at the end of the night)
  2. Candy (of course!). If you’re hosting a party and want to keep the sugar down try these sugar free lollipops (Clean Teeth Lollipops)
  3. Clementines with Jack O’Lantern Faces
  4. Masks (dress up is so fun – here is a set of 24 animal (aka not scary) masks).
  5. Swishy Halloween Toys (Check them out on Amazon)

These Halloween Games for Kindergarten can be played indoors or outdoors – are great for the classroom, home or a kid party.  Great for kids 3 and up.

Ghost Bottle Bowling – Halloween Game For Kids

This ghost bottle bowling game is a simple concept, but what makes it unique is that the kids actually make the bottles (aka the pins)  ahead of time so you get two activities out of one game.  

Practicing fine motor skills making the game extends the time of the game.  And sometimes you just need an activity to last more than five minutes!

Free Printable Halloween Memory Match Game

If your kids need to get rid of some energy, grab a big bag of popcorn and have them race to see who can fill their pumpkin up first with popcorn.  A little messy so playing outside is probably the best idea.

Pumpkin Ring Toss
