Any ideas for games for a Halloween party? We're going to do ring toss with hula hoops and pumpkins, but after that we're clueless! We have mostly 3 year olds.

aww I can't believe there were no responses!

I searched the forum for halloween party, I have a almost 2 yr old, 2 yr old, 2-3yr olds, and I'm completely at a loss at what to do with them tomorrow.

We're going to have some treats, and I'll get them to trick or treat at one point.

We have to paint some crafts we made, but other than that I seriously have no idea.

ALL of them have no attention span whatsoever.

I put alphabet letters on ghost cutouts and I'm going to hide them around the room for the kids to find. (I'll have a master alphabet list so we can check off as we go). I do this with every holiday, they love it.

Here are a couple of cool sites that list some fun sounding games for the holiday!

http://www.kids-fun-and-games.com/ha...-for-kids.html

I am not sure how age appropriate they are or aren't for your particular age group but there has to be something fun on one of those sites.

We had ours last week since the SA's wanted to join and they were out of school. We painted small pumpkins, decorated a cookie (for pm snack), ghost footprints, dressed up, and played ring toss with witches hats and the rings from twister hopscotch.

I've done toilet paper mummies in the past. Everyone gets a turn and we wrap them up in toilet paper. When they decide to rip it off, it makes a big mess, but they have fun doing it.

I think we're going to do freeze dancing to the Monster Mash, Ghost Bowling (I dressed our bowling pins up as ghosts and they're super cute!), a couple of crafts including making the ghost feet. Also lots of general playing, haha. I have a yummy thematic snack and a yummy thematic lunch planned though, which will be fun. Might find time heavy on our hands, lol, but it will be fun anyway.

Sorry to be late on this one!!

Musical Chairs...we have been playing it all morning, lol. I use a Halloween Theme song CD for the music.

Mini Pumpkin rolling relay race...they roll a mini pumpkin down a tape line (decorated with stickers) to their partner and the partner rolls is back, etc. First to finish wins. The school agers love this one, I always pair them up with a little. It evolved from pumpkin bowling that used to get just too loud and rowdy.

Costume 'fashion show' (for pictures)

Halloween Bingo. I made the cards years ago out of tagboard and stickers, created a 'master board' and we use candy corn as the markers. Winners get a tattoo, sticker, spider ring, etc. Another favorite here.
