Here are a few ghastly games and alarming activities to get the kids mo-o-o-o-ving this Halloween.

Skeleton Scavenger Hunt

Buy a plastic skeleton and disassemble it into individual bones, or print out a picture of a skeleton and cut out all the major bones.

Hide the plastic or paper bones around the house and garden for the kids to find!

Once all the bones have been found, ask the kids to reassemble to skeleton.

Pumpkin Bowling

Get a small pumpkin and some plastic bottles, fill the bottles with sand or rice to make it harder for them to fall over.

Line up the bottles and make a starting line and you have your own bowling alley.

Zombie Tag
  • Get a big enough space for lots of children to run around.
  • One person is a zombie and everyone else is a human
  • A zombie can NOT run and must act like a zombie.
  • Humans need to run away and not get touched by a zombie.
  • Once you are touched by a zombie you must become one.
  • You win by being the last human remaining.
Monster Freeze

Play some haunting Halloween tunes – get the kids to show off their best monster dance moves.

They must freeze in a terrifying position when the music stops. Get the pause button at the ready and keep the kids on their toes!

Pass the Pumpkin Relay
  • Line up into 2 teams.
  • The first person passes the pumpkin OVER his/her head to the next person in line.
  • The next person passes the pumpkin UNDER his/her legs to the next person, and so on.
  • When you get to the end of the line the last person runs up to the front and starts it all over again.
  • Whichever team has the first person that was in line at the beginning of the game— in the back of the line WINS.
Apple Bobbing

 Fill a large tub/ bucket with water and several apples. The players must try to bite” into and “catch” and apple while holding their hands behind their backs. Don’t forget to have some towels handy.
