Throwing a Halloween party for your kids and need Halloween entertainment ideas? Have a look at my Halloween party games below. If you don’t want to read this long post scroll to the end of it instead – there you can find a video.

Fun Halloween entertainment ideas for kids

Boo! Halloween party guests are always grateful when you have a few fun entertainment ideas up your sleeve. First of all there is “Trick or Treat”. This classic means that you go from door to door in your neighborhood and say “Trick or treat”! Kids wear costumes and if they get no treats they will do something evil. (of course not that evil, but hey, it is Halloween after all) check out this picture with the witch and devil doing their thing:

Back home – some fun entertainment ideas for kids

You are back home from Trick or Treat and need more party games? Why not make a toilet paper ghost game?

Make this | Halloween entertainment - fun for kids

It is really easy: first, grab some toilet paper (the more the better), a felt pen and a pumpkin. Draw ghosts on the toilet paper and stack those papers up. You got yourself a really cool Halloween bowling game now. Let party guests roll the pumpkin and make a challenge out of it. The winner could get the biggest piece of the Halloween cake.

Make a ghost Piñata on Halloween

Another fun idea is to make a ghost piñata on Halloween. Here is a picture of one:

Make pumpkin cookies with your little ones

And what about the sweets you think. Make pumpkin cookies with your little ones. This way they are already excited before Halloween and you can spend some quality time with them. Decorate them and serve them at your party.

Halloween ideas with balloons

Balloons are a classic toy, right? Use them as decoration and for games. Still got that felt pen you’ve had from earlier? Take it out again and draw pumpkin faces on orange balloons.

Later on it is time for the balloon dance: put one balloon on the forehead of two kids. Now they can dance but should not loose the balloon in the middle. Fun Halloween party idea, don’t you think?

About Learning Kiddos

I’ve started Learning Kiddos as a creative outlet for me. Hi, I am Marie and love to make fun and cool crafts for and with kids. 2015 our little son Nils was born and our world turned upside down. Since then I work hard to make stuff with him and encourage him to have a creative life. Creativity is a great way to teach kids things. And with my crafts aimed at three to ten year old’s you learn a bit about nature, animals and the world.

Coming up next is my first Skillshare class about making your own museum at home. The intro is already filmed, now I just need to finish the rest.
