The best part about making a Halloween game is that kids can have fun making the game and then have even more fun playing the game.

Kids might like to try making their own Halloween board game. They can draw a track that zigzags across the board and then decorate it with Halloween characters. The track can be divided into spaces and each space can be numbered. Some spaces might have a reward written on them and some might have a hazard on them. The reward might be something like, ‘The ghost that caught you is friendly. Go forward 3 spaces’. The hazard might say, ‘The vampire has caught you. Miss a turn.’ The track can start a the Haunted House and go to your house.

There are also many different Halloween crafts that kids can make. They can create cards for their friends or they can create decorations. Kids can make ghosts, bats or spiders to decorate the house or to decorate outside the house. They can also create masks that might even form part of their Halloween costume.

A simple Halloween craft is to make spiders with egg cartons painted black and pipe cleaners for the spider legs. Add red eyes and you have a simple Halloween decoration. Another simple craft is to paint a paper plate orange and cut out a pumpkin face. Add a green stem to the top and some elastic string to tie it and you have a pumpkin mask.

There are also some tasty Halloween activities for kids that you might like to try. The kids might enjoy doing some cooking and creating some Halloween food. They could create their own recipes or you can search for Halloween recipes online. They can make gooey treats with jelly, cut faces out of sandwiches or make a revolting looking brew to drink.

Of course it isn’t Halloween without a few pumpkins around the place. Many Halloween activities for kids involve pumpkin carving but this isn’t all that you can do with pumpkins. Pumpkin carving is great Halloween craft but if the kids are too little to try this, they might be able to try pumpkin painting instead. They can paint faces on the pumpkin instead of carving the pumpkin.
