13 Fun Halloween Games for Kids and Adults

Scary movies, trick-or-treating, and pumpkin carving might be the main events on Halloween, but these simple, yet fun games, are great for adding to a party for adults, children, or simply for your own kids after the Halloween fun.


Witch Hat Ring Toss

Perfect for a quick DIY game, this witch hat ring toss requires minimal supplies and loads of fun. Kids can take turns tossing rings onto the witch hats. You can make them worth different points, make it a race, or just let them throw till they make it.

Eyeball Pong

Obviously this can be a version of beer pong for adults, but it is just as fun for kids too, without the beer, obviously. Set up cups for kids to toss eyeball ping pong balls into, if they make it they win a prize.

Halloween Forehead Detective

This one only required sticky notes (we suggest using orange to keep with the Halloween theme). Have each guest write down a popular Halloween item, costume, or word and have them place it on their forehead. They will have to ask other party attendees questions to try and guess what their forehead says. It makes for a great ice breaker as well.


Halloween Bingo

Print out these festive bingo cards, grab some M&M’s, candy corn, or other small sweets and play some bingo.
