Halloween games for kids?
Tue, 08-23-2011 - 4:05pm

I'm "room mom" for my son's preschool classroom for the 3rd year now, so you'd think I would have a ton of ideas already, but I'm always looking for something new or fun.

Here's what we've done in the past:

1. Musical chairs to spooky Halloween music.

2. Tie gummy worms to a string and hang them from a witch's broom handle. The kids have to keep their hands behind their backs and race to see who can eat their gummy worm the fastest.

3. Pin (velcro) the face on the pumpkin.

4. Bean bag toss where the kids try to get their orange and black bean bags into those little plastic jack-o-lanterns.

My kids loved bobbing for apples and doing teams of Mummy makers (wrapping toilet paper around their partner).

Okay, mummy making is DEFINITELY going on my list. How fun! Then they could take their unraveled toilet paper to the next station and make mummy boxes too!

Thanks for the idea!

We do bobbing for apples but use a giant serving fork. No nasty germs in the water and nobody's makeup gets ruined.

Mummy wrap is so fun!
