Eight-legged corn hole? Count us in.
Halloween parties for kids can be a lot of fun, but they’re also a bit of a challenge. The kids are hopped up on candy, filled with adrenaline from scary movies, and have energy to burn. So what do you do with them for all those hours? Here are some Halloween games for kids to play after you’ve monster-mashed to the best Halloween songs and decorated all the pumpkins. Most of these easy Halloween games have a DIY element — but even if you're not a crafty parent, putting them together is guaranteed to be a fun craft project the whole family can do together in the run-up to the party. Some are games of skill, like corn hole, bowling, or golf with a seasonal twist, while others challenge kids’ memories and creative-thinking skills.
With just a few supplies, these DIY Halloween games will be fun for you to make and play with the entire family. Ask your kids to assist you in assembling them, and then spend the afternoon laughing and getting a little competitive. Just don’t forget to buy lots and lots of candy for prizes! (And, when you’re done, you can always throw on a not-so-scary movie until it’s pickup time.)
