5 Cheap, No Hassle Halloween Party Games For Kids

Whether you’re hosting a big Halloween party for a group of children, or just having a nice family party with your kids, a party isn’t a party without games!

I’m going to be hosting my own little party for myself and Luke this Halloween. Along with some spooky snacks and  some magical music, we’re going to be playing some great games.

I’ve put together a selection of Halloween themed party games that are perfect for kids, or the whole family, to play. The key thing to remember here is that, as usual, we are on a budget! My aim here was to provide some inspiration for cheap and cheerful Halloween party games that are guaranteed to thrill without breaking the bank.

5 Cheap, No Hassle Halloween Party Games For Kids

3-in-1 Halloween Party Game

First up, I have our very own 3-in-1 Halloween Party Game. Luke and I made these over half term. This game is really fun to make as well as to play. Grab yourself a ping pong ball and you can use these little ghosts to play the traditional Tin Can Alley game, Bowling and Keep Your Eye On The Ball.

Apple Bobbing

Is Halloween even Halloween without apple bobbing? You can’t get any more low tech, cheap and cheerful than filling a big tub full of water and chucking in some apples. For added effect, you could peel and carve spooky skulls into the apples or add some gelatine/jelly to the water to make it a bit more gloopy.

Halloween Bingo

Halloween Bingo is another great idea and one I hadn’t even thought about before. It’s so simple and easy. Simply print off a bingo printable like this one (which comes with the character cards too), or create your own using a free image editing software like Canva.com. Alternatively, you could turn it into a Halloween Hunt, a Halloween themed scavenger hunt and search around the house for the items on your list – the winner gets a chocolatey prize!

Pumpkin Decorating

Decorating mini pumpkins – you just can’t go wrong. Those tiny pumpkins are usually dirt cheap, normally around the 50p mark. If you’ve got a lot of children around for the party, setting up a pumpkin decorating station will keep them all busy. Crack open the craft supplies and the glue and let their imaginations take over. If the children are a little older, you could switch this out for a mini pumpkin carving station.

Mystery Food Boxes

Finally we a game that’s guaranteed to freak your little ones out. Lose yourself in the sensory experience of Mystery Food. Grab a blindfold and a selection of foods, such as spaghetti for brains, and get squelching. Guess what creepy Halloween themed item you’re touching!

I hope this list has given you some inspiration on how to host a great kids Halloween party from home on a budget! There are so many possibilities and, as a child, Halloween is all about dressing up, using your imagination and having fun. One last remark comes from Jess, who gives some excellent advice on her blog about how to host a Halloween party from home: “Don’t stress if no one wants to play games or so the crafts you have planned. Remember they are children and they will be happy just running around.”

    These are great ideas! I can’t believe Halloween is tomorrow! We have a 4.30 hospital appointment so there won’t be much time for anything once we get home.

      Oh dear! I hope everything goes well. To be fair, I take the approach that the whole week is Halloween week, so we will probably still be celebrating later on in the week. 🙂
